Not far removed from a successful showing in Las Vegas during CES, Harman Luxury Audio Group today announced that the company will be demonstrating the latest audiophile solutions from its JBL, Mark Levinson, and Revel brands in two listening rooms at AXPONA 2023, which takes place April 14-16 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Conference Center in Schaumburg, Ill. It will also be enjoying a milestone anniversary for the famed Mark Levinson brand.
“We’re thrilled to be attending AXPONA 2023, which provides music enthusiasts with a unique opportunity to experience the latest and greatest from the high-end audio industry’s most renowned manufacturers,” says Jim Garrett, senior director, Product Strategy and Planning, Harman Luxury Audio.
“We’ll be showcasing a number of solutions from our leading JBL, Mark Levinson, and Revel brands at the event — from loudspeakers to amplifiers, CD players, digital audio players, and more — and can’t wait for attendees to hear what they can do.”
In room 1221 at AXPONA 2023, JBL will be demonstrating select components from its iconic Classic Series, including Black Edition versions of the Classic L100, L82, and L52 passive speakers. These special production versions all include the Black Edition Appearance package for a stylish and sophisticated new look, while the L100 and L82 have been enhanced with the Black Edition Performance Package, according to the company.
Additional Classic Series components at AXPONA will include the SA550 Classic integrated amplifier featuring the latest Bluetooth AptX Adaptive technology and the CD350 Classic CD player with a robust tray loading mechanism and USB-A input.
Attendees will also experience JBL’s 4329P Studio Monitor Powered Loudspeaker system. Consisting of two speakers — each with a patented JBL 2409H 1-inch compression driver — the 4329P features an integrated streaming engine that provides both wired and wireless network audio capabilities via built-in Google Chromecast, Apple AirPlay 2, and Bluetooth 5.3 aptX Adaptive audio.
Rounding out the room will be JBL Studio 6 Series loudspeakers — including the floorstanding Studio 698 and bookshelf Studio 630 — which the company says deliver professional compression driver technology at an affordable price point.
Mark Levinson Celebrates 50th Anniversary with Revel Help at AXPONA
In room 1222, Mark Levinson will be highlighting the limited-edition ML-50 amplifier, which was introduced last year to commemorate the brand’s 50th anniversary.
Using the popular No. 536 amplifier as a starting point, the ML-50 incorporates upgraded audio circuits and physical design elements taken from Mark Levinson’s most significant products over the last five decades, the company notes.
Mark Levinson will also show the No. 526 dual monaural preamplifier with proprietary Pure Path circuit design and DAC, and the No. 519 digital audio player, which combines a traditional multiformat CD player with both wired and wireless streaming capabilities.
For an audiophile listening experience at AXPONA, HARMAN will be pairing the Mark Levinson solutions with Revel Salon2 floorstanding loudspeakers. Offering an elegant, designer-friendly appearance, the four-way speakers consist of three 8-inch woofers, a 6.5-inch mid-woofer, a 4-inch midrange, and a 1-inch tweeter.
