  • 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.

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. 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.

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. Gives my 10" sub very little to do, although it's still needed. I'm used to listening to high quality pro audio studio monitors and these are a great hifi equivalent.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Heavy / Bulky

  • 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?

Pretty much as expected

  • 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. They replaced a 20+ year old pair of Baby Advent II's as front speakers and genral listening w/ Klipsh SW.

Great Bookshelf Speaker

Ryan, Amazon

  • 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

  • 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.
