The Harman Luxury group is bringing Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro 3D surround to its line of high-end JBL Synthesis home-theater electronics/speaker packages, which will also for the first time get HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2.
The new surround and connectivity technologies will appear in the JBL Synthesis SDP-75 audio/video processor, which will be available in March or April and will be demonstrated at the Expo.

The unparalleled sound of JBL Synthesis is backed by decades of expertise, breaking ground in 1984 when they were chosen by to set the standard for surround sound. Not only was JBL the first equalized, processed, and powered THX Media System in the industry, it is now the only consumer company that guarantees to not only match, but exceed the SMPTE and specs.
Your home theater audio system should show your adventurous side. CinemaDream does that for you by creating realistic sound that transports you right into the movie; one minute you are part of the crowd, cheering the hero on as he makes the winning touch down, and the next you are on the edge of your seat as the passenger of a high-speed chase. No matter what you choose to watch, the experience will always be magnified with JBL Synthesis audio.
Far from being awful JBL’s flagship Everest audio system simply doesn’t perform anything like as well as the marketing spiel and some (not entirely unbiased) third party reviews have indicated. I was expecting it to perform significantly better than it does, and hence found myself bitterly disappointed.
The $27,500 Synthesis LSR system delivers 7x200 watts into three LCRs and four surrounds, and 2x1200 watts into the subwoofer pair. The LCRs and surrounds are from JBL’s professional lines. The LCRs and surrounds are two-way 8-inch monitors, and the two subs are 15-inch models.
The Luxury group will also show two new JBL Synthesis systems that reduce the opening price of a Synthesis system to $27,500 from $53,800; a $15,000 flagship speaker in the Studio Monitor series to replace a current model; and Revel’s refreshed entry-level speaker series.
Whilst acoustic performance is indeed the best out of the JBL Synthesis range, which is appropriate given that it is JBL’s flagship system, it stills most notably suffers, albeit to a lesser extent, from the sharpness and harshness that is somewhat infamously apparent with the rest of the range.
The component will be built by Trinnov for JBL and based on Trinnov’s Altitude 32 flagship surround processor. Differences will include substituting Trinnov’s room-correction technology for JBL’s own technology, which will be incorporated in an outboard SDEC-3500 room-correction processor.
At CinemaDream, we get excited about the ‘next big thing’ in Home Theater just as much as anyone, but when it comes to JBL Synthesis, there really is no competition. As the only audio system to win an Oscar and two Grammys, Harman’s JBL Synthesis is not only a leading brand in sound quality, it is the frontline of cinematic performance. They are the best audio brand in the market across all platforms.
