Summary: JBL Studio 530: About as good as it gets, or, the Willie Nelson of bookshelf speakers. “Looks like you’ve got a couple of big va-jay-jays there,” said the missus. “A couple of what?” I asked, hoping I hadn’t heard her quickie assessment correctly. “Va-jay-jays. Your new speakers look like the Mound of Venus, a bread box, lady flowers, a beav…” “Okay, I’ve got it,” I interrupted, trying to keep her stroll down Synonym Street from scorching a static scene in my synapses.
Summary: I have yet to put these speakers in an optimal environment, but the are clear, crisp, and do an excellent job with vocals as well as music. There is a little left to be desired in the mid-range, thus a four instead of a five rating. For their size and weight that are quite good.
