JBL Professional by Harman and UK distributor Sound Technology have launched the new Series 104 compact powered reference monitors.

The monitors draw from seven decades of JBL Professional engineering to deliver an innovative new speaker, designed from the ground up.

They feature JBL 4.5” coaxial drivers that provide full range performance for clear highs and deep bass, without a subwoofer. The driver has been specially contoured using the same research that led to the waveguide found in M2, 7-Series, and 3-Series monitors.

They promise a high level of performance, even at loud playback levels,  through clean, integrated 60-watt Class D amplification that can drive One Series speakers to 104db SPL (peak), without the distortion found in other monitors in their class.

They were also created with the modern production lifestyle in mind, with a sleek, new look and compact size. Smart features like a front-panel volume control allow level adjustments without straying from the sweet spot, the front-panel headphone jack automatically mutes the speakers, providing isolation in one simple step, and dual 1/4-inch balanced and single 1/8-inch unbalanced TRS inputs accommodate a wide range of sources. An optional, protective carrying case will also be available, for production on the go.
