To round up our review of JBL’s retro styled modern classic Bluetooth speaker series, the Authentics Series, we saved the smallest for last.
The Authentics Series 200 is a bookshelf speaker, adorning the gold and black visage of its bigger siblings, dressed and ready to party like it’s the 70s.
Around the back is a similar affair too and the 5 inch sub is placed on the bottom, ready to thunder.
Inside the JBL Authentics 200 is two 25mm tweeters, which coupled with the lower placed sub can belt out a whopping 90 watts of awesomeness. Don’t let the size of the JBL Authentics Series 200 fool you. It’s got some grunt.
To really hone in your preferred audio experience the Authentics Series range is best paired with the free JBL app for Android or iOS.
You can also marry up with your favourite AI assistant, Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant. Connecting up is super easy you just need to Bluetooth it from your smartphone or tablet. Or sync it to your home’s WiFi.
If you want to be a bit more technical you can plug the Authentics Series 200 in to your modem via a LAN cable for a more stable streaming experience.
While there’s a lot of Bluetooth speakers out there in the stores, some extremely high quality, none compare to the Authentics Series range. A touch of retro chic mixed with present day tech and an audio experience that is top shelf.
While small, the Authentics Series 200 can easily fill a medium sized house wall to wall with booming HQ audio.
Mains powered, you’re not going to be able to get back to the age of jive in public, but it’s a sure winner in your home this holiday season. Ready to belt out the best of your New Year’s party playlist.
