JBL® Studio 1 Series Brings Legendary Sound into the Home with New, Distinctive Weave Design

The Series of Floorstanding, Bookshelf and Centre-Channel Loudspeakers Features Signature JBL Sound with a Dramatic, New, One-of-a-Kind Look

HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated (NYSE:HAR), today announced the availability of the new JBL® Studio 1 loudspeaker series. Powerful and accurate in any listening environment, the latest JBL loudspeaker collection includes the JBL Studio 190 and Studio 180 floorstanding loudspeakers, the Studio 130 bookshelf loudspeaker and the Studio 120c centre-channel loudspeaker. All of them feature the new JBL signature design: the bold, dynamic Weave.

As a renowned leader in professional audio, the JBL brand has a strong heritage in delivering high-quality sound performance. At work in stadiums, concert venues and 60 percent of the world’s cinemas, JBL speakers are also the brand of choice among many leading musical artists.

The new speaker collection employs performance-proven technologies and advanced materials to deliver the dynamic range, tonal accuracy and spatial transparency that have long been hallmarks of JBL products. Each component is sold separately, and they can be combined to personalize the ideal cinematic home theatre or music experience while boasting a brand-new design that will make a dramatic statement in every living room.

‘We are truly excited to unveil the JBL Studio 1 series – the latest product boasting our brand-new “weave” design language’, said Thijs Linthorst, general manager, HARMAN Consumer International. ‘Since our origins in providing the first high-quality speakers for movie theatres, we have always built products with unrivaled cinematic sound. We are excited to take that storied engineering experience and unveil a series of speakers for your home with a brand-new, refreshed look.’

The Studio 190 is a three-and-a-half-way floorstanding loudspeaker featuring dual woofers and midrange drivers with two 6-1/2" (165mm) PolyPlas cones, plus CMMD® Lite tweeter domes with proprietary Bi-Radial® waveguides to offer exceptional clarity and realism with outstanding bass response. The Studio 180, a vertical tower like the Studio 190, is a three-way floorstanding speaker with one 6-1/2" (165mm) PolyPlas cone.

For a bookshelf or a tabletop, or for someone who is looking to pack some big sound into a convenient, space-saving place, the Studio 130 bookshelf loudspeaker is perfect. The two-way Studio 130 loudspeaker offers exceptional clarity and realism with outstanding bass response. Featuring 4-inch (100mm) low-frequency transducers and 1-inch (25mm) high-frequency transducers, Studio 130s are ideally suited for use as satellites in a Studio 1 Series home theatre system or on their own in compact yet captivating music-only systems. The Studio 130s will transform your home entertainment experience with both style and substance.

The last in the series, the JBL Studio 120c system is an ideal choice for the centre-channel speaker in a multichannel home theatre system. Voice-matched to other speakers in the JBL Studio 1 series, and sharing the same dynamic new industrial design, the 120c renders the dialogue, music and effects of even the most challenging movie soundtracks with confidence and style. Like the other loudspeakers in the line, the two-and-a-half way dual centre-channel Studio 120c also features two magnetically shielded 4-inch (100mm) PolyPlas cones and a 1-inch (25mm) CMMD Lite dome, magnetically shielded, in a Bi-Radial constant-directivity waveguide.

Availability 
The JBL Studio 190 and Studio 180 floorstanding loudspeakers, Studio 130 bookshelf loudspeaker and Studio 120c centre-channel loudspeaker are all sold separately and will be available in fall 2010. For more information, please visit www.jbl.com.
