JBL Authentics L8 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound quality is amazing We have the JBL Authentics L8 in our home and not only is it LOUD but the sound quality is unbeatable! This was definitely worth it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Superb Sound I got it through a Friend of Mine and I can tell you it blows the Bose SL 30 out of the Water. The Bose sounds like a Toy. The bass is powerful, the highs are crisp and the Mids are right there. Truly a Hi-Fi in a Box solution. Use Hi Quality Audio to make the most of it. Wi-FI Chromecast Audio worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding clarity of music 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great product for the USA - not so for Europe Sound is fantastic, way better than rivals such as Sony SRS X9, and with the acclaimed connectivity, (spotify connect, direct internet radio etc) it should easily be the product of choice. Unfortunately for us mere mortals in Europe we don't get the same conectivity - so no Spotify connect, no direct internet radio, so it's only good for bluetooth and streaming from a NAS through 3rd party apps. Sorry guys otherwise brilliant product, you just let the Europeans down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Airplay Does not Work! Warning, the Airplay feature for the L8 simply doesn't work. While it is fairly easy to get the L8 to connect to your wifi network, it only shows up as an Airplay device on some apple products/apps. When it does show up, trying to play audio to it results in an error and the L8 will disconnect from the wifi network. I spent hours trying to get this to work properly, testing with an iPad, iPhone, and Mac Air, and just about every different setting on my router (e.g., different wifi security encryption, static IP address, etc.). I was unable to get Airplay audio to the device, no matter what I tried. Bluetooth does work. Extremely disappointing considering how much this unit costs. With regard to the sound quality, the default sound profile has the bass extremely high relative the the mid and treble. This is one of the most unbalanced set of speakers that I have come across. Luckily, you can adjust the EQ with the JBL app, which makes the sound more reasonably balanced.

a similar question has been asked and answered but does the L8 contain a DAC and could I play back FLAC files directly from an external storage device, ie using the L8 as a player for hi res digital files

Asked by: Loomah
Hi The Authentics L8 and L16 can't process High Res digital files, so you will need an external DAC in order to play those files on the L8

Bonjour heureux propriétaire d’une JBL L8 l’application iOS n’est plus compatible avec le dernier iOS11 et doit être mise à jour. Je ne peut donc plus sélectionner la source (optique; wifi; etc..) à distance. Pour quand cette MAJ est elle prévu ?

Asked by: iSo69
Bonjour, Nous vous remercions pour votre question. La mise à jour sera prête courant Octobre 2017. En attendant, vous pouvez toujours régler votre enceinte Authentics L8 grâce à l'utilisation d'un système Android.

Bonjour J ai le voyant sortie qui clignote , ( le bouton qui permet de changer les sources ) et mon enceinte Autentics l8 ne s allume plus Pouvez vous m indiquer la marche à suivre svp Merci

Asked by: Fabrice et Patricia
Bonjour!! De ce que vous décrivez l'appareil semble avoir un souci avec l'alimentation. Nous vous recommandons d'éteindre l'enceinte en utilisant l'interrupteur marche / arrêt situé sous l'unité, puis débranchez le câble d'alimentation de la prise murale et contactez le revendeur où le produit a été acheté afin de l'envoyer pour une réparation.
