Summary: I purchased these speakers for after doing a bunch of reading and research but never having heard them. I own a pair of 30 year old JBL speakers that I still use and love in a smaller room and decided to take a chance on the L880s and I have to say I have no regrets. The sound is amazing! They seem to fill the air all around you and at times you really do feel like there's a concert in the room.
Not only do the speakers sound good, they look good too.

Summary: I had some annoying shipping issues but the speakers are great. I seek fidelity in a speaker over "loud" but they are powerful enough for almost any application. These speakers have a frequency response the goes beyond my hearing range. Even so, I actually enjoy the difference over my previous pair. I will purchase the matching center speaker. They look great with or without the snap on grill. The grill attaches such that rattle won't occur.
Summary: Having now retired I again (first time since before kids) have time to listen to music. Unfortunately, cranking up my 80's Altec-Lancing speakers revealed the woofers had deteriorated and sounded terrible. A good bit of searching lead me to these L880s. When they arrived I fired them up and gave them a run with Hendrix, Canadian Brass, Mozart, Pink Floyd, Beethoven, Deep Purple and the like.
Summary: the only thing is that the shippment of the speakers where not so good, \the box became open, buy everything ok, i could fix something in the speakers, their sound is amazing its like to have the singer live in your house, i also have a subbwofer velodyne that give a deep bass to the sound everything excelent.
Summary: I love this product. Cannot rate it high enough. Thank you all for the response posted before me. I've always loved JBL speakers. How is it I am a bigger fan now? These are the best. My friends come over and love the look. Then ask how they handle. I give them my wifi code and let them DJ. They are amazed and sold right then and there. They turn it up loud afraid to go all the way. So I turn it all the way up for them.
Summary: L880 is the greatest speaker I ever owned. Unfortunately it proves all my past purchases of entry level speakers like Sony, Yamaha, and Polk Audio in last 10 years are a kind of waste of my money. I know there are a lot of higher end speakers in the market but in my opinion, L880 is the best speaker with "reasonably high price tag".
