JBL by HARMAN has introduced its new JBL EON ONE PRO rechargeable portable personal linear-array PA system.
Available now through UK distributor Sound Technology, the EON ONE PRO combines the sound quality of a professional system with the convenience and portability of a self-contained, battery-powered solution. JBL says the new offering is the first all-in-one battery-powered linear-array PA system on the market..
Featuring Bluetooth audio, an eight-channel mixer and a rechargeable lithium battery that lasts six hours, the EON ONE Pro is ideal for gigging musicians and DJs, educators, fitness studios, corporate environments and more.
“The JBL EON ONE established a new standard for mobile sound reinforcement, and now the EON ONE PRO takes that even further with battery-powered operation, and a broader range of connectivity and control options,” said Craig Lambrecht, Retail & Recording Solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions.
“With EON ONE PRO, musicians and mobile presenters can easily control their sound using the built-in 8-channel mixer with Bluetooth audio – then collapse the entire system into the base unit and carry it away with one hand. It’s finally possible to perform literally anywhere without sacrificing sound quality and control.”
The high-frequency section and two spacers fit conveniently into the base unit, providing a streamlined package. Users can set up the system in seconds, choosing the right number of spacers to optimise the sound for each application. Two spacers provide a long throw for live performances and large crowds, while a single spacer is ideal for conferences, gyms and medium-sized groups. For small meetings and intimate events, users can place the high-frequency section directly atop the base unit.
With a maximum SPL of 118 dB, the EON ONE PRO provides detailed, distortion-free audio. An unobstructed 8” bass-reflex subwoofer delivers tight, accurate low-frequency response that’s ideal for DJs and playing back recorded music. The high-frequency section features JBL’s patent-pending Directivity Control Geometry, which optimises the spacing and angles of the six two-inch high-frequency drivers to deliver full and clear sound over a wide coverage area, ensuring that the entire audience hears the sound accurately and consistently.
The built-in eight-channel mixer with Hi-Z inputs and phantom power enables users to connect microphones, instruments such as acoustic guitars, electric guitars and keyboards, and other sources. The mixer also features bass, treble and reverb controls to optimise the sound. Bluetooth audio streaming makes it easy to play back recorded music from smartphones, tablets. A USB charger connection provides power for phones and tablets when needed and the unit features an integrated tablet stand for convenience. The integrated accessory attachments allow users to add a camera or a future lighting element to complete any show.
The JBL EON ONE PRO is available now priced at £1299 inc VAT.
