JBL EON ONE arrives in the UK
New model is designed to combine the sound quality of a pro system with the convenience of a compact, column-style solution.
JBL Professional and UK distributor Sound Technology have announced that the new EON ONE all-in-one linear-array PA system has started shipping to the UK this week.
The manufacturer says the EON ONE combines the sound quality of a professional system with the convenience and streamlined look of a compact, column-style solution. Featuring Bluetooth audio, a six-channel mixer and a design that can be carried with one hand, EON ONE is best suited for gigging musicians and DJs, coffee houses, fitness studios, corporate environments and more.
With a maximum SPL of 118 dB and a UK RRP of £958.80, the EON ONE provides ‘detailed, distortion-free audio,’ while an unobstructed 10” bass-reflex subwoofer delivers a ‘tight, accurate low-frequency response.’
The high-frequency section features JBL’s patent-pending Directivity Control Geometry, which optimises the spacing and angles of the six two-inch high-frequency drivers. This creates what the company describes as ‘extraordinarily even’ front-to-back coverage.
The built-in, six-channel mixer enables users to connect microphones, instruments, such as acoustic guitars, electric guitars and keyboards, and other sources. The mixer also features bass, treble and reverb controls to optimise the sound.
Users can set up the system in seconds, choosing the right number of spacers to optimise the sound for each application. Two spacers provide a long throw for live performances and large crowds, while a single spacer is ideal for conferences, gyms and medium-sized groups. For small meetings and intimate events, users can place the high-frequency section directly atop the base unit.
“The EON ONE provides a sleek, highly portable solution without compromise,” said Craig Lambrecht, retail & recording solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “The EON ONE was created by the same engineers behind the breakthrough technologies found in our flagship loudspeakers and reference monitors. We’re excited to bring world-class JBL sound quality to even more musicians and venues through this new form factor.”
