JBL ES20 Speaker System

Sound & Vision Magazine
15 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Producing loudspeakers at mass-market prices is a thankless task. It takes the resources of a big company like Harman International to do it right. I’ve determined in one review after another that JBL has long been a budget-speaker champ. You could even call me a JBL fan. But I was still surprised when I took the ES20 loudspeaker out of its box. Its tapered non-rectangular form announced that this was no low-end junk-in-a-box speaker, even at $399 per pair.

What Hi-Fi?

  • Excerpt: Unlike a game of football, say, it's mighty difficult to refer to a ‘speaker of two halves' and make the analogy stick. Bear with us, though; we're going to give it a go. If ever the was a speaker of two halves, you see, the JBL ES20 is it. First of all, there are the looks. The ES20 is a bewildering combination of interestingly swoopy, thoughtful cabinet design that wouldn't look out of place on a speaker at 10 times the price, and the sort of indifferent micro-system...
  • Pros: Nicely curvy cabinet, energetic, upbeat sound
  • Cons: Tiring high-frequency clamour, they look a bit low-rent in this company

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Több, mint 700 hír, közel 100 teszt és több tucat sajtóanyag- ezzel tudtam szolgálni az AVX Fórum vendégeinek az elmúlt egy év alatt. Remélem értékelhető tájékoztatást tudtam nyújtani a kedves látogatóknak az aktuális újdonságokról, amelyek alapszintű támpontul szolgáltak a hifi és házimozi világának napi szintű változásairól. Mindenkinek további kellemes és hasznos időtöltést kívánok a fórumon! Peter Lyngdorf a csúcsminőségű audió ipar egyik veteránja.
