BANK FOR THE BUCK!

John A. Vieth, Amazon
22 January 2015
  • Summary: Great bang for the buck. Unless your listening in a studio with acoustic foam on the walls, floor, and ceiling, you won't be able to tell this speaker from speakers that cost 10 times more. All the accuracy and sound you need. And the JBL name is a name you can be proud of. To use a car analogy, JBL may not be Ferrari quality, but it's entry-level Mercedes to me, and the price of these things is more like Ford Focus. In other words—GREAT VALUE!

Good Backround Speakers...

  • Summary: I was looking for a set of speakers for backround music in my bedroom. I wanted a small speaker with decent sound on the cheap. Found these JBL's for $50.00 at frys including shipping. They're not going to win any Grand Prix awards but for the money they seem perfect for my application. As long as you're not expecting "audiophile" performance you'll be quite pleased with the sound.

Hidden gem

  • Summary: I use very expensive speakers for my front and center channels and I use Loft 40 for my rear channel. I absolutely love my setup. You won't be disappointed for the sound this thing generates for its size. I won't compare this to a full sized bookshelf's. But for the size, cost and for my purpose which is to use it as a rear channel, this speaker cannot be beaten. Allow some time to break in.

For the price they ROCK! :)

M. Tayon "SoapinTrucker", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a pair of these speakers for less than $65 with shipping, and am EXTREMELY pleased with the sound! I have them hooked up to a Pyle 200 Watt Receiver (PT-380AU), and they handle it! I did not expect DJ quality sound or booming Bass but am surprised that in one room, it comes close! For the record, I am no expert, and not an "audiophile", I am just a truck driver consumer!

Better bookshelves out there!

  • Summary: Okay for the price. If you've ever owned JBLs before don't expect the same fit, finish, sound quality or power from these. I own Klipsch, Jamo, Sony, BIC, MTK, JBL and Yamaha speakers. Paired with Onkyo, Yamaha, Pioneer and Sony receivers. Comparatively I would rate: Fit and finish 2/5 (Chinese made and it shows) Audio quality 3/5 (Warm and Accurate) Power handling 1/5 (Very thirsty) Price 3/5 Okay in a 5.1 or 7.1 surround setting AS surround speakers.

Good speakers for the price

E. Carter, Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: They are good for the price I paid. I bought a pair of these for $79.95. First I hooked them up to an older Yamaha Natural Sound receiver for stereo and they sounded Ok, nothing special somewhat boomy. Next I hooked them up to Pioneer SC-65 as front L-R. After I ran MCACC speakers came to life. You need a decent receiver with these speakers, 80 Watts per channel or more with auto calibration MCACC or Audyssey.

Für den Preis und weit darüber unschlagbar

Frans, Amazon
30 May 2014
  • Summary: Die Loft 40 gab es im Angebot und habe Sie eigentlich als Testlautsprecher gekauft. Nach einen Soundcheck habe ich dann festgestellt dass diese Teile zu sehr viel fähig sind. Im direkten vergleich mit meine Standboxen der 3000€ Klasse gab es einen Unterschied jedoch nicht wie ich eigentlich erwartet hätte. Wenn mann diese Teile mit gute Elektronik kombiniert hat man für den Preis einen sehr sehr guten Sound.

  • Excerpt: Второй вечер тестирую. После первых пары часов прослушивания выявил "недостаток" - на небольшой громкости, при подводимой мощности 2-5 Вт, не понравилось звучание низких частот, гул, бубнение.
  • Pros: Качественная сборка, неплохие головки, сбалансированная звуковая картина, хорошая пространственная проработка сцены.
  • Cons: Модель бюджетная, поэтому о качестве виброзащиты и хорошем демпфировании нечего и говорить. Их практически нет. Но см. комментарии.
