Add yet another contender to the wireless home audio battle courtesy of JBL. The JBL Authentics L16 speaker system ($1,000) is the latest speaker system to do away with the cords, sporting wireless connectivity via AirPlay, DNLA and Bluetooth (along with conventional analog, optical, and phono preamp integration). Inside, six 50W amplifiers power six speakers to deliver huge sound and rich audio quality, while the L16′s single walnut-veneered enclosure is more reminiscent of a legacy stereo system than a modern day creation. For even more connectivity, the free JBL MusicFlow app lets you control the speaker with iOS or Android mobile devices, and an optional Qi charging pad gives you the ability to wirelessly charge compatible mobile devices. You can pre-order the JBL Authentics L16 Speaker now, with shipping starting on March 5th.
