Summary: If you have the space for floor standing speakers, and you are on a budget, these are a very nice sounding pair of speakers for the price. Please note, these come in a PAIR. The MSRP should the price PER PAIR, not per speaker. If someone tries to sell you these as singles, they aren't being up front with you. You get a frequency response of 37 HZ all the way up to 20 KHz, so it covers most of the human hearing range.
Excerpt: Bought from J&R at a good price and very fast delivery. Give them about two weeks of normal use to break in. Highs seem to float in center of sound stage. Voices are crystal clear and precise. Lows are good but for my taste I am using an Outlaw LFM-1 Plus enough said. Blue ray movies are out of this world and for stereo with a sub unreal at this price. Spend more if you want but these speakers are hard to beat.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I recently, purchase the JBL loft 50 from frys for $169.00 a pair which is a good price, i always track their sale on speakers from week to week because their prices due fluctuate. I orgional bought the Onkyo SF-4800, its not that i wasnt satified, I just wanted to try something different I wasn't fully sold on the highs, and after tracking the lofts for a few weeks the price was right.
But this is great choice for under $200/pair range

Summary: I bought a pair at $189 from newegg.com. I'm telling you, NEVER EVER PAY OVER $200 FOR THIS!! If you considering this at JBL's MSRP, go compare with Klipsch Reference RF-42 and you will definitely grab Klipsch one. The MSRP of this speakers is BS. Period. But this is great choice for under $200/pair range.
Summary: These are really good speakers. They sound really clear. Highs are great. Mids are just right. The bass is lacking. But it's only a 6.5" bass driver. So I didn't expect a lot of bass. But you wil want to add a sub. I payed $180 for them an are worth it. They look great and are slim. Great for all types of music. Another win for JBL. UPDATE: Ok, so after a while when these speakers have broken in they sound even better!
Excerpt: Дополню свой отзыв от 04.11.2013, а в частности о прослушивании музыки. Сначала я только фильмы смотрел, звук нравился, а звук при воспроизведении аудио записей как то разочаровал, но... толи колонки прокачались, толи я настроил ресивер как надо... Теперь наслаждаюсь композициями любимых групп. Для таких «бюджетных» колонок звук очень-очень!!! Басы тут все-таки есть! Я даже сабвуфер отключаю. Не ожидал такой прыти от сего произведения от jbl.
