Summary: They arrived on time in excellent condition. They were easy to hook up. They sound nice. They did seem deeper than they looked. Be sure to check the depth of the location you plan to put them.
Summary: I have enjoyed stereo components since the '60s, and still get excited when it is time to upgrade. My first set of JBLs was a set of L36 Decades in the '70s. They were replaced by a different pair of JBLs the '90s. Twenty years later it is time for the latest upgrade. In both cases they needed replacement as the cones had deteriorated! These L830's are a nice speaker. Although some reviewers claim they are large, I'd say they are medium sized.
Summary: I bought these from another vender due to a sale, but they are wonderful enough to deserve a review here. I normally am skeptical of any speaker in the $400 to $700-$750 range, as by a rule of thumb you can get spectacular speakers for less and the true upgrades to sound start when you climb closer to 1k. These are the first speakers on amazon with this high of a price which I consider a great purchase!
Summary: This pair is a little BIG to be used as surround speakers. I would be nice if use them as the 2 front speakers for a small room. Size is the only concern, plan carefully..."What do you want to use them for.. Surround or Front?
Summary: Nice sound, using these for *gasp* an old-fashioned stereo setup (ya know, a receiver + 2 speakers). I wanted speakers that were big enough and loud enough for the main living space of my apartment, but didn't have so much bass as to disturb the neighbors. These roll off at 48Hz, but the bass is tight and punchy. Very nice sound. Too bad nobody buys stereos anymore.
Summary: I bought the refurbished ones to save some cash. I was relieved when they showed and the only thing wrong was one grill was broke on the side and the other grill had broken pegs. The speakers themselves rock. They would work great for fronts, but I will be using them for the rears. You won't be disappointed with these speakers.They are heavy at 22 pounds each, but that gives them nice rich sound. Solid wood construction. Oh yea and free [...] from J&R as of this posting!
Summary: Speaker sounds great, handles all the power from my Harmon Kardon 250 watt receiver. I rated it 4 stars purely because of size. It's a big bookshelf speaker and won't fit in many entertainment centers. Make sure you measure before you buy.
Summary: Overall, a great little speaker for the price (i.e., $250/pair). Sound a little bright, but with a little EQ modification from your system they can sound really nice. Do not image as well as other speakers I've owned (such as Paradigm, KEF, and old school ElectroVoice monitors), but they don't cost anywhere near $1K+ per speaker either. So glad I purchased these li'l guys and I think you will feel the same way when you welcome them into your home as well.
