The JBL Authentics L8 2-Way Wireless Speaker System, now with Spotify capability, is the JBL Bluetooth speaker that sets the bar for your bedroom. It's compact size can be deceiving, as it pumps out 120 watts of power for each track. The result is a dynamic range of low and high frequencies, matched with clarity of sound. Connect through your Bluetooth device, with the assistance of NFC technology, and start streaming your digital library in an instance!

JBL L8 Speaker Features:

  • High-powered audio that blends beautifully in small to medium-sized rooms
  • Connect through Bluetooth or a wired auxiliary link for instant playback
  • Use Spotify and stream your favorite playlists from your smartphone
  • Clari-Fi technology improves your low-resolution tracks during playback

Product Information

Simple fact: the JBL Authentic L8 will change the way your room sounds forever. Inspired by the legendary JBL Century L100 loudspeaker, the JBL Authentic L8 blends classic acoustic speaker design with advanced wireless audio streaming. Sporting a gloss-black wooden enclosure, the L8 maintains unmatched audio quality while providing wireless connection to a wide range of devices via AirPlay, DNLA and Bluetooth. Near Field Communication (NFC) technology lets you pair a Bluetooth device simply by tapping it on the speaker. Meanwhile, the free JBL MusicFlow app lets you easily set up and control the speaker with your iOS or Android mobile device.

And it’s as versatile as it’s easy: charge devices, including tablets by using its built-in USB ports. Packing 120 watts RMS of power, custom JBL low- and high-frequency transducers, advanced DSP technology and a frequency response of 50Hz – 35kHz, the JBL Authentic L8 produces full-range sound and a wide stereo image from a single stereo speaker. Harman Signal Doctor technology replaces the details lost in today’s compressed music files, adding detail and energy to any low quality music stream. The JBL Authentic L8 is the perfect companion for any audio source, and the ideal sound system for any living space.

This model also features new Spotify technology, allowing you to stream your Spotify playlist right to the speaker.


JBL Authentics L8 Wireless Speaker Features:

120 watts (RMS) of JBL power and advanced acoustic design produce dynamic, full-range stereo JBL sound from a single speaker.

  • High-performance JBL transducers and meticulous acoustic design deliver amazing sound from a compact speaker. The optimized low- and high-frequency transducers combine with advanced electronics and DSP to present full-range stereo sound with a wide stereo image – all from within a single enclosure.

Wireless connectivity for AirPlay, DLNA and Bluetooth devices – Now Featuring Spotify

  • The JBL Authentic L8 provides easy wireless audio playback from smartphones, tablets, computers and media players. It offers AirPlay for iTunes and iOS devices, DNLA for Android devices and Windows PCs and Bluetooth – including instant Bluetooth pairing with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The speaker automatically switches streaming formats as needed, simplifying use with all your devices. And the L8 connects through Spotify, giving you more options for your music.

Clari-Fi Technology

  • Clari-Fi analyzes digital audio files during playback and “rebuilds” what was lost in compression. Other audio "enhancers" simply add EQ or reverb to existing content with the unsatisfactory result of boosted artifacts and increased distortion.

Totally blew me away...
Got it this afternoon, unboxed it, powered it on, connected it through Bluetooth, started up Spotify on the IPhone 6Plus and... Well.. I've been listening for hours now.. It's like listening to music for the first time, hearing details never heard before, still I've heard the songs tens of times before.. And my god.. It surely plays loud if you don't want anyone else to be able to stay inside... I'm speechless. Astonished. The Best Buy ever. Go get one for yourself.

Absolutely amazing system!
I bought this product 4 months ago and have to say, it's the best money I've ever spent. The sound is ridiculous! When I have company, it usually takes my guests less than two minutes before they comment on the amazing clarity and bass. There has been times where it goes in and out while utilizing AirPlay. I've chalked it up to my router. If you're looking for a speaker that can fill a large room - this is it. I live in a flat that has a common area of about 700 square ft. It has absolutely no problem filling that space perfectly - at all volume levels. I will say, it doesn't sound nearly as good when playing music via bluetooth. If you're not going to use this with your wifi, not sure its worth the money - would be missing out on the true potential of the speaker. Craftsmanship of the unit is also pretty stellar. Nice solid/heavy construction.

This is such a great sounding unit I'am using mostly Apple Air-Play and the details of the music beats my two speaker and sub system. It is like rediscovering my music collection and hearing details In the music I have been missing.
