Matched with Studio 530s. Dialog is much more intelligible ...
6 April 2015
Summary: Matched with Studio 530s. Dialog is much more intelligible than with our previous Polk Audio center channel. Have it underneath the tv slightly angled up towards head level when seated. Audiophile performance.
Summary: This center speaker is great. Does what it needs to do for my home theater system. Voices are clear, from every angle. I also purchased the JBL studio 580 towers and 530 bookshelves, along with a JBL 550P subwoofer. I could not be happier with this system.
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!

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.
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.
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.
Summary: Nice center channel and goes well with the bookshelf or tower jbls. I had it with the bookshelf speakers the 530s I think it was called. Movie dialog sounded clear and dynamic. I recommend it.
