A $3000 Integrated Amp that looks like it’s from the 70s with modern conveniences such as Bluetooth, Chromecast and Airplay 2.

JBL SA750 Integrated Amplifier

JBL just announced the new 75th Anniversary JBL SA750 Integrated Amplifier inspired by the vintage SA600 and SA660 integrated amplifiers from the 1960s and 1970s. The new SA750 brings back an iconic retro-inspired milled aluminum face panel with luxurious volume, balance and input dials and hefty switches for power, mute, direct, MC/MM phono, and Dirac Live room calibration.  The face panel includes a 3.5mm Aux input and 3.5mm Headphones output, plus a 2-line orange display screen.  The look is completed by classic teak-wood veneer side panels to match the new anniversary edition JBL L100 Classic 75 loudspeakers.

The retro-chic design of the JBL SA750 is contrasted by state-of-the-art high-output Class G amplification technology and streaming protocols including Google Chromecast and Apple Airplay 2. The SA750 also includes a high-resolution DAC, a switchable MM/MC phono input, support for UPnP wireless, full MQA file decoding, and is Roon Ready, plus a host of additional premium audio features including Dirac Live room calibration for optimized performance in any listening room.

The heart of the JBL SA750 integrated amplifier is a high-performance Class G amplifier that delivers 120W of power per channel into 8Ω and 220W per channel into 4Ω. This Class G design provides impeccable sound quality and efficiency operating as a Class A amplifier for low-level signals and switching in an additional power supply for large transients and dynamic waveforms. The company says the result is incredible detail and accuracy at low levels, low crossover distortion, and high-current capability for extreme power demands.

“The SA750 combines the appeal of retro design with the most current room optimization and streaming technologies in the market. It’s the best of both worlds — past and present — and is already generating considerable excitement among audiophiles and enthusiasts to whom we’ve previewed it.”Jim Garrett, Senior Director, Product Strategy & Planning, HARMAN Luxury Audio.

Connectivity includes Ethernet and WiFi with UPnP for connecting to a home network; USB for playing files from removable memory drives; Ethernet and RS-232 serial control for third-party control systems; two optical and two coaxial digital inputs, and six pairs of analog RCA inputs.  The JBL SA750 features two pairs of binding-post speaker connectors, a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input, a 3.5mm headphone output, and one stereo RCA preamp output.

Price & Availability

The new JBL SA750 integrated amplifier will be available April 2021 for $3,000.
