All-in-one connectivity with wireless streaming, analog, optical, and phono preamp devices
The JBL Authentic L16 offers easy wireless audio playback from the latest and best in mobile devices. It offers AirPlay for iTunes and iOS devices, DNLA for Android devices and Windows PCs and Bluetooth® connectivity – including instant Bluetooth® pairing by way of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The speaker automatically switches streaming formats as needed, simplifying use with all your devices. Not only that, but the L16 connects with analog, optical, and phono preamp technology, making it an all-in-one champion for your household devices.
Clari-Fi analyzes digital audio files during playback and “rebuilds” what was lost in compression. Other audio "enhancers" simply add EQ or reverb to existing content with the unsatisfactory result of boosted artifacts and increased distortion.
USB ports and optional wireless charging pad lets you recharge your compatible devices.
The JBL Authentic L16 has two USB ports, one for charging phones, the other for charging tablets, and an optional wireless charging module that makes recharging your Qi compatible mobile device easy. No worrying about connectors; just place your device on the charging pad and let L16 do the rest. The wireless charging option is another way the JBL Authentic L16 keeps your living space – and lifestyle – clutter-free.
With its single-enclosure speaker system and wireless audio streaming, the JBL Authentic L16 was born to resonate with legacy. Inspired by the legendary JBL Century L100 loudspeaker, the JBL Authentic L16 blends classic acoustic speaker design and advanced wireless technology. It offers a real walnut-veneered wood enclosure, exceptional audio quality and easy wireless connectivity to a wide range of devices via AirPlay, DNLA and Bluetooth®. Not only that, but with the L16’s additional analog, optical, and phono preamp jack connections, you’ve got yourself an all-in-one masterpiece of compatibility. And it’s as convenient as it’s powerful: Near Field Communication (NFC) technology lets you pair a Bluetooth® device simply by tapping it on the speaker. Meanwhile, a free JBL MusicFlow app lets you easily set up and control the speaker with your iOS or Android mobile device. Using the speaker’s built-in USB ports or optional Qi charging pad, you can charge compatible mobile devices. Sporting 300 watts r.m.s. of power, custom JBL low-frequency and high-frequency transducers, advanced DSP technology and a frequency response of 40Hz – 35kHz, the JBL Authentic L16 produces full-range sound and a wide stereo image from a single, mid-sized stereo speaker. Harman Clari-Fi technology replaces all the audio details lost in the shuffle of today’s compressed music files, adding detail and energy to any low quality music stream.
