Good speakers, will not disappoint you

S. Bachilo, Amazon

  • Summary: I use a pair of these for more than three years. A center speaker was replaced with a comparable L from JBL a few month later. Each L890 is powered in my setup by two channels (bi-wire) of a good Pioneer Elite receiver, and can produce very loud and usually clear sound. While bi-wire is slightly excessive (the speaker does not need 2 x 130W), it is a reasonable use of "excessive" channels from amplifiers and may somewhat reduce distortion.

Excellent Speaker! Fully satisfied.

Dominic J. Maratt, Amazon

  • Summary: Perfectly satisfied with the performance. Performance exceeded my expectation for quality of sound reproduction. Initially tried it with 20 Watts/channel Digital Amplifier, it did not bring out the quality of these speakers. Switched to a Heathkit/Daystrom AA100 Stereo Tube Amplifier (~40Watts/Channel). Speaker does have plenty of clean Bass. Performance is simply amazing! I saw many reviews complaining about lack of Bass response. I totally disagree.

  • Summary: I have been around Altec Lansing and JBL monitor speakers, stereo and music my entire life. I have been fortunate enough to spent lots of time in very close relationships with both stereophiles and several high end stereo salespeople. I have been exposed to lots of various equipment. These JBL L890CH speakers are extremely high quality reference/monitor speakers.

Superb quality sound but needs a subwoofer for solid powerful loud bass.

  • Summary: I bought these speakers without being able to hear them before buying. I was really leery about the quality they would produce and with spending over a thousand dollars on the pair i was quite hesitant. But after reading a million reviews i was almost convinced they would be superb. I live in an apartment complex and am not able to pump these babies to their true potential. But i must say at low power they sound immaculate. I can hear all instruments and all noises.

Great Speakers

Rocco, Amazon

  • Summary: A bit concerned when I received as the speakers were appeared to be light [use to Vega weight]. Boy was I surprised when they were hooked up. Excellent range of sound and if you didn't know better you would swear there was a sub-woofer integrated into each speaker. There certainly are better speakers but for the money these are well worth the investment. I use an Onkyo 805 at 135 watts per channel and they absolutely blow me away...especially on HD Master discs.

Not the big sound of old

FLACKER "Good luck and enjoy !!!", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased a pair of new JBL L890's about 2 months ago, Upon initial hook up to my Vintage 165w per channel {CONCEPT 16.5) 2 channel receiver I was a bit disappointed, They do not appear to be very efficient as they require a good deal of power to produce a similar volume as other speakers I have had on the system.

wow

Eric, Amazon

  • Summary: originally had these towers majorly underpowered and enjoyed them even than now that i'm actually feeding them enough power the beast within has arised in a good way woofers would flop around like crazy underpowered but give them the power they need and they tighten up running them on a onkyo 5008 receiver in btl mode had them turned up as loud as my ears could take and not even a nuance of distortion
