Excerpt: These speakers do their job very well. They look very nice ( matched them with a JBL sub ) and as always with JBL, they sound great. Perfect size for small room and great sound at a great price ( or at any price ).
Summary: I have these speakers set up in my bedroom , they are paired up with a Yamaha RS201 stereo receiver (100 watts per channel ) , a Sony bluray player and a LG 32 inch flatscreen .I am totally impressed with the clarity and the bass these speakers put out .movies , although in stereo mode , sound amazing . Voices and sound effects sound detailed with no muddiness in any range .Music on these speakers sound great ,sound stage and imaging are excellent .
Summary: I'm glad I bought these speakers. I use them with a JBL 12 inch subwoofer and JBL center and back speakers for surround sound. I love the whole system. All together they sound great. I always get compliments about the way the system sounds. I use them with a Pioneer Elite receiver. Couldn't be happier.
Summary: I ordered these speakers to use with an inexpensive 250 watt PA amp I have. My wife and I use the set up to practice our music around the house (her electric piano/keyboards and my guitars). I didn't want to spend a lot of money for another bulky, elaborate, expensive set up so I gave this a try. I couldn't be more pleased. The speakers are small in comparison to my JBL MR822s and fit the room we use perfectly. But don't let their size fool you. They sound great!
Summary: I really like these little ES30's. They have very clean and detailed sound. I've always liked the way JBL makes their speakers sound so balanced. The first pair they shipped me were bad. HUH, Brand new in the box and were horrible sounding. Called Amazon that second, they made the return super easy, and had replacements delivered in 2 days. The brand new in the box replacement speakers sound awsome the way a JBL should. I'm very happy I got them now.
