Excellent! I would recommend this system to anyone!
p.s. To listen to music, make sure to connect with a CD player (not a DVD player), and use 5 channel stereo, otherwise, the sound will not come out right.
First of all, the sound is great. I hooked them up to an Optimus professional series reciever. I have no complaints. I've been trying them out on different movies and music and everything sounds good. Secondly, the brackets to hang them on a wall are very good-easy to set up, and they look good too (the speakers and the brackets). The sub is powerful; I haven't turned it up past 3/4ths but that is more than enough.
I would recommend these speakers for someone whose room is not very large--they are relatively small and unobtrusive and blend in well with the room. The sub also looks nice. Good purchase.
Out of the box all the speakers have a nice heft to them, a feeling of good magnets and quality build. Fit and finish was excellent. I love the piano gloss black, but I was a little disappointed with the gray side panels of the subwoofer... from looking at the pics (I studied the gallery on JBL's website for more views) I assumed it would be silver or brushed aluminum looking, but it is battleship gray. Not a big deal because it doesn't show much, but still a little less than beautiful. The subwoofer did have a very impressive back panel with various inputs, a level control, and the look of quality audio equipment. It's also very heavy, a good sign. Center channel looks nice although the feet are small and it's fairly tipsy... it rolled forward when I was pushing the TV cabinet back and almost fell, I caught it in my lap. GRRR. The satellites are a little weird looking but I'm getting used to them. They are also unstable because of the tiny bottom and I'm worried the grandkids are going to knock them around but will have to watch that.
I was very impressed they include TWO different types of wall mounts for each of the five speakers. I only used the directional mounts but it was nice to receive custom made mounts that work great with the speakers and are included at no extra charge.Read more ›
