Compact acoustics for all: review of JBL One Series 104


Usually most of users does not even pay attention to that with how qualitative sound provides their smartphone or the computer. Much more attention is paid, for example, to earphones, and columns - they what? "Play"? Well and let to themselves "play". Let audiophiles of all colors think of various TsAPah and amplifiers, but also you should not forget about professional columns, the truth there are they usually as a plane wing. Though now it is possible to ensure a normal picture of reproduction of music and for quite reasonable money: for this purpose we lodged at office acoustics of JBL One Series 104.

In general, it "свежак" - model was presented only at the beginning of this year, but already managed to be proved at us in edition. Its feature not only that it is the first model of compact professional acoustics of JBL (and we got used to associate this brand with Charge, Pulse columns and others), but also in use of coaxial loudspeakers. In studio monitors, Carle! But let it does not confuse you: first, combination of both radiators allowed to reduce the size of columns and in general acoustics turned out very successful.

Of course, a coaxial design in studio acoustics - something rare, but is at it a number of obvious advantages. First, she allows to achieve more smoothed operation of the high-frequency and low-frequency radiator (they are located on one axis therefore there are no phase distortions, and a sound more legible. Besides, it has no difficulties with connection, separate strengthening and other cunnings therefore it is much simpler to cope with such acoustics.

If to speak about design, it it is precisely possible to call safe. At columns the rounded-off case walls that gives them at the same time both classical, and modern style. Therefore JBL One Series 104 will fit into any interior - both office, and house. Considering that many work with a sound in home studios, it is important.

But! At the expense of small weight (4 kilograms for two) and lack of need to pull a heap of wires, it is possible to take columns also with itself - for example, on offside events. What else studio monitors can be carried without problems with themselves? Especially these babies are ready to moving - in front they are protected by the metal gauze, and cases are made of shock-resistant plastic. Yes, it does not collect prints.

On one of columns is in front placed the discrete regulator of loudness with 20 provisions and the light indicator of food, миниджек and port for connection of earphones (by the way if to use it, the sound of loudspeakers will automatically be disconnected). Behind the design of both columns is decorated by ports of the phase inverter and sockets for connection each other with the inclusion button. As for connection to a sound source, it is provided here as balance connection (for this purpose there are TRS sockets), and
