Summary: I needed two, good quality bookshelf speakers for use with my audio, video system in a very small room with a desk and computer so I bought the JBL ES20's, mainly for the 'super tweeter'. The speakers have an ultra high frequency tweeter which adds depth and transparency to music. The midrange is smooth, clear and never 'muddy'; low frequency reproduction is good but deep reproduction of bass is limited by the small size of the cone, which is normal in speakers in this...
Excerpt: I've been using ES20 along with ES90/25C/250 system for over 8 years. Its a very nice, powerful "true" pair of speakers. For some people it might be a little overkill for surround speakers, but still, if you have a big fronts its a very good match. To my opinion, they can be used as good stereo speakers for a compact system.
Summary: I have been owning budget 5" bookshelf speakers, but I am only interested in Bristish model, until I decided to give this speakers a try, and it did not disappoint, although it sound different from my Mission mX1, Monitor Audio BR2, MR2, Mr1, PSB B1.polkaudio 35B, the bass and treble are clear, it made me have second though about American speakers
Summary: JBL ES20's are the best sounding speakers For the price. I have them paired with the polk Audio Cs10 as the center and polk audio psw10 Subwoofer . Rear speakers Sony SS- B1000. Amplification Denon AVR-1513 . I spent many hours of research on each speaker . The range and frequency response complments each other. Best setup for movies and music . You will not be disappointed.
Excerpt: I bought these as my outside front surround speakers to go with my S38 main stereo speakers and center studio speaker. they do great for surround filler,
may order another set for my rear surround set, to replace old smaller jbls.
System is also set up with dual 12" jbl 250 powered subs and makes most people
head for cover when I crank it up !!! I just buckle up and hang on !!!!
Excerpt: I bought these speakers a couple months ago. I knew of JBL's reputation however I never thought I would get such quality at such a low price. I've been telling everyone about the deal I got by buying direct, thanks again JBL.
