JBL Does it Right

Daniel I. Neukom "GP fan since 1962", Amazon

  • 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.

Made for large listening spaces!

  • 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...

Very nice

  • Excerpt: The first thing I noticed about these was the build quality. Really nice and finished wood exterior. The second thing was the fantastic clarity at all volume levels. I'm powering these with a 90w per channel amp and I hooked them up in a bi amp config. Really nice sound. Lots of bass.

  • 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?"

  • Excerpt: Bought these "sound unheard" based upon numerous reviews from different sources. As reviewed they are accurate but a little sharp in the highs. Overall though they are the best I have heard for the money.

Great Bookshelf Speaker

Ryan, Amazon
30 March 2009
  • 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.

Nice Bookshelves

Anthony, Amazon
11 February 2009
  • 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...

Deeper than they look.

S. Jensen, Amazon

  • 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.
