Summary: These speakers are an excellent value for the price. Big, booming base with clear mid-range response. Crystal clear highs with no over-bearing shrill over-tones. Highly recommend for audio enthusiasts or for any home-theater application.
Summary: My new speakers sound awesome, I'm glad that I pick these pair of speakers, I think I make really good deal these two speakers only $850 for both, if I compare to the sound loud and clear I think it worse more than that.
Summary: The speakers were here on time and I'm thankful for that, but I am one who likes keeping the boxes that the speakers came in and they was busted to the point of not keeping. I'm not to happy about that. I would like new boxes after all I did pay for them too. The speakers are like none other I've ever heard...simply awesome!!
Summary: These speakers are definitely hi-end. The sound quality is clear and precise when matched with excellent amps. I like them so much I bought a pair for the family room and a pair for the bedroom.
Excerpt: I use these speakers in my Yamaha based system to listen to SACD's in multichannel as well as DVD-Audio discs. I also enjoy them when playing my Oppo 103 blu ray player. The DTS HD audio sounds fantastic.
Pros: Distortion Free, Excellent sound, Great Bass
Excerpt: I've owned a smaller set of JBL's for my living room for several years. Love them. So when it came time to replace my 15 year old Cerwin Vega's that were part of my "Man Cave" home theatre, I thought, why not JBL's again. Only hooked them up a few days ago. But so far, they sound great. Super price, fast delivery, what more can you ask for!
Summary: These speakers are by far the best sounding speakers I gave ever purchased especially at the price I got them for! I have them pair up with a JBL ES250 12" sub woofer and the sound is amazing! When I watch movies in stereo mode the sound feels like it is in surround because the 890's really project the sound out into my living room and along with the sub the room feels like I brought a theater to my home.
Better than klipsch Reference series and Martin Logan Electromotion ESL

Summary: I replaced the Klipsch Kf28 fronts and C52Ii center with the Jbl 890 and LC2 center. What a difference in quality and presence of mids and highs, also the bass is immaculate, also I have two subwoofers Klipsch reference 12 and they are set to the minimum volume. JBL is definitely the best speakers for home theater . I had also the Martin Logan ESL as front speakers and they are far behind sound quality if compared to the JBL L890.
