Summary: Have had these for about 1 year. First, in my apartment a little bright & definitely boomy. Couch was against the back wall, so the problem was too much speaker in a too small a room. Mids though, in the human voice range always sounded great. Now, in my house, MUCH better.
Summary: I don't really like to do reviews,however, I haven't had a chance to listen to these speakers much, but today I am listening to some cd's I have and I've got to tell you, these speakers are fantastic.
Summary: I did not know how many sounds I was missing. It was good just connected to the receiver, but then I ran the receiver setup with the small microphone and the sound became heavenly. I put the dvd of Scorpions: Moment of Glory - Live with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra . works perfect together.
Summary: I have used a pair of the L890's for my system mains, with a JBL mid, JBL 10 inch powered sub and L830's for surround sounds as a home theater for about 6 months. It is a very good combination for music and blu-rays.
spectacular sound but requires a little fine tuning.

Summary: I purchased a set of these speakers refurbished because they were so cheap and its one of the better purchases ive ever made. the l890's deliver pure, full range sound with a precision and clarity that you just wont find in any other speaker in their price range.
Summary: These are the nicest looking speakers I've ever owned. But if you want a speaker with a fuller, rounder, bassier sound that isn't as nice looking, you'll get way better sound out of the Cerwin Vegas with the 15 inch woofers.
Summary: I GAVE JBL ANOTHER CHANCE AFTER BEING VERY DISAPPOINTED WAY BACK IN 1988 WITH JBL L100 T--- VERY EXPENSIVE-BUT THEY WERE JUST BOOM BOXES----ONCE OPENED THEY HAD NO BRACING--NO REINFORCED BAFFLE---NO ANTI RESONANCE ASPHALT BOARDS---ALL CHEAP STUFF THAT A FACTORY CAN DO WITH 25 DOLLARS MAXIMUM---BUT...
Summary: Great speaker! Really! The sound is very balanced, effortless and transparent. It delivers without shouting, very musical, terrific! You can spend x20 on speakers, you can't get better sound. This speaker when connected to HK3490 is above anything else on any price range.
Summary: I purchased a complete Studio L home theater anchored by the L890 over a month ago, and after breaking them in with every style of music, I can can say that these speakers truly deliver the goods.
