Planning an epic Christmas or countdown party? Take things up a notch with JBL this year. Audio brand JBL makes its presence heard this festive season by launching the PartyBox 100, LINK BAR and the ultra stylish Harman Kardon Citation Series.
New addition to the PartyBox series (available at all leading retailers), PartyBox 100, brings portable party audio to a whole new level with powerful high-energy sound and vivid lighting effects. Now, consumers can choose from the PartyBox 100 ($499), the larger PartyBox 300 ($699) and the massive and feature-rich PartyBox 1000 ($1499) to make a party go with a swing. Though the 100 is the smallest in the line-up of JBL’s PartyBox Series, it still packs a punch with the JBL signature sound.
Music and good lighting sets the mood for a party. The PartyBox 100 adds a burst of colour to complete the party with a phenomenal light show. Choose from a range of RGB LED light patterns or let the colours groove to the music to liven up the atmosphere. With 12 hours of playtime, the PartyBox 100 ensures nonstop partying.
Love singing? All JBL PartyBox models are equipped with microphone and instrument inputs, giving everyone the opportunity to showcase their talents, whether at home or on stage. The PartyBox is Bluetooth-enabled, allowing anyone to connect their playlist wirelessly. Its USB port also lets you charge other USB devices right from the speaker – so you won’t miss a beat at the party literally.
On a search for a gift that would impress a beloved obsessed with both sound system and smart devices this Christmas? Look no further. First showcased at the Google I/O conference in May 2018, the LINK BAR ($499) impresses us with the capability to transform any TV into a smarter TV with legendary JBL sound performance.
Equipped with the content of Android TV and the intelligence of the Google Assistant, simply saying “OK Google” grants instant access to streaming top Netflix flicks or YouTube videos, while voice commands make content search effortless.
Expanding upon the JBL LINK series (available at all leading retailers and JBL Sound Gallery at T-Space), which includes the LINK 10, 20, 300, 500 and View, the LINK BAR is JBL’s latest collaboration with Google. Created with the tech-savvy, forward-thinking consumer in mind, the LINK BAR easily adapts to your lifestyle, as Google AI learns from each person who accesses it to become familiar with their voice and commands.
The built-in Chromecast capabilities support both high-definition video content and sound to provide entertainment unlike any other. Once connected on the same Wi-Fi network as the LINK BAR, a smartphone, tablet or laptop can “cast” the latest chart-topping release or popular viral video from Chromecast-compatible apps.
The LINK BAR also features multiple HDMI inputs and a one-cable connection to a TV. Switching between devices is made simple with voice commands, so no more looking in vain for the elusive remote control. The LINK BAR also offers an optional subwoofer, which provides an even bigger and more resounding bass.
Prefer a multi-room speaker system? The Harman Kardon Citation Series combines innovative acoustic design with cutting-edge technology by including Google Assistant, a high-resolution LCD touch screen and Chromecast built-in, making Citation the poster boy of next generation of home speakers. The innovative design of the series marries Harman Kardon’s expertise in sound engineering and technology with the sleek style of Kvadrat.
The sleek design of the series features the brand’s signature industrial design accented with thoughtful elements, including elegant aluminum detailing. Pulling the entire refined look together is the dirt-repellant and flame-retardant wool fabric by Kvadrat, a European leader in acoustic textiles.
The Citation Series delivers a dynamic listening experience, whether the speakers are used individually or as a powerful 5.1-channel surround sound system. Powered by WiSa technology, the series delivers low latency, HD multi-channel and multi-room capabilities, allowing users control over amazing sound from any room.
The speakers can do more than play from one music source, with the option to play different tracks in different rooms.
In early 2019, an over-the-air (OTA) update brought Apple AirPlay 2 support and Presets to the Citation 300, Citation 500, Citation Bar and Citation Towers. With AirPlay 2, customers can wirelessly stream music from an iOS device, Apple TV, HomePod or by asking Siri.
Citation also features built-in Google Assistant. Streaming the newest or most popular music is now quick and efficient through voice-enabled Google AI. Smart voice control also makes tackling tasks like creating calendar reminders, generating to-do lists or controlling smart home devices as simple as saying “Hey Google”. Use voice commands like “Hey Google, play some jazz” or “Hey Google, dim the lights,” to perfectly regulate the ambience of any room in the home.
Additionally, Harman Kardon Citation has Chromecast built-in, allowing over 300 audio streaming services to be easily accessed in HD quality. Once connected on the same Wi-Fi network as Citation, a smartphone, tablet or laptop can “cast” the latest chart-topping release or playlist from Chromecast-compatible apps.
The Harman Kardon Citation lineup consists of various options to meet every listening need, including multiple countertop speaker options, a soundbar, powered subwoofer and tower speaker. Prices for the series start from $369 for Citation One to $3999 for a Tower.
The Citation speakers are available here and at all leading retailers and JBL Sound Gallery in Black and Grey.
