Powerful little dialogue box

Jamestown "TechDork", Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: Similar to the 530's that I purchased a year ago, the 520 sounded thin and flat at first. The tweeter tends to sound dry and grainy and woofers seem to be disconnected. Within 2 weeks however, this little guy comes alive with force. Vivid dynamic contrast and fantastic resolution. The tweeter is richly detailed and smoothly starts to roll off around ~12Khz or so. You do need to be careful about the volume once they're broken in however.

Could be a lot worse.

  • Summary: After reading all of the glowing reviews, I was a little disappointed. Detailed but thin. I think if they had opted to use larger drivers vocals would have sounded much more natural. I wish there was a larger model to purchase like the other speakers in the lineup.

Try matching this amazing center channel withe Studio 590...WOW!

James Lennox "Grimmjim", Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: Without a doubt, the JBL Studio 590 is the finest speaker I have ever heard in my own home... or anyone's home for that matter. The horns reproduction of sound is so accurate and lifelike that I am amazed every time I fire them up. I purchased the JBL 520CBK center channel a week later- not only does my vinyl and CD's live and breath but my surround is incredible also!! If you are in the market for a pair of floor standing speakers- look no further!

Great power and clarity in a small footprint.

  • Summary: Great match to my pair of Studio 590s. Great dialog and vocal clarity. The footprint is smaller when compared to the JBL Northridge speaker this replaced so I can see my plasma display at wider angles.

Amazing clarity and value

Adam S., Amazon

  • Summary: Excellent clarity, detail, and off-axis performance. I'm using this center channel with the Studio 530s. The performance of these three speakers is an amazing value. I use this speaker for home theater exclusively. Dialogue is precise, and seems to have all of the intended character and inflections. The soundstage is convincing, and location of the voice on screen is portrayed with pinpoint accuracy. Whispers are heard effortlessly.
