Just some brief highlights and important information so you can quickly see whether these should be on your shortlist or aren't for you:
***These speakers need a large room!!!***.
By which I mean they should be placed at least 1 foot from the wall behind them and the side walls should be at least 5 feet from where you have these, with a few feet (standard) between the two. Assuming you can place them in those conditions...
Imaging(8/10): By this I mean the ability of speakers to "disappear", allowing you to enjoy the sound without being able to easily tell its coming from 2 boxes in front of you. In terms of engineering achievement, it is amazing how well they image considering their huge size. You won't get better imaging without sacrificing dynamic power and very diminished frequency range.
Soundstage(8/10): This is just me, but soundstage is an aspect of imaging. What I mean by this is that sounds will appear to come from distinct locations; such as a bass guitar further back left than the lead singer, or a sound coming from off-screen on a movie appearing to come from the direction the characters are hearing it. Again, I give them the 8/10 when viewed objectively against satellite speakers as well.
Dynamic Range(10/10): Pump as much power as you want into these. They can play LOUD and do so without distortion.Read more ›
I researched many different brands and speaker types before deciding on the JBL Studio L series. I looked at JBL's cheaper line, the Venue series, but I decided that I wanted to go with the higher end Studio series for a few dollars more. I purchased these L830's for my front L/R and paired them with the LC1 center channel speaker.
The difference in sound compared to my small Onkyo speakers is tremendous. It wasn't until I hooked these speakers up that I noticed how bad my original speakers sounded. The L830's provide a crystal clear sound that is very neutral, and they can drive a decent amount of bass as well, allowing my sub to really focus on the lowest frequencies. My amp is rated at 95 watts a channel, and it seems like the L830's aren't even breaking a sweat even when I crank the volume. It's nice to know there is a lot of untapped power in these speakers, even though I'm not planning to upgrade my amp anytime soon.
Visually, these speakers are beautifully crafted and look very nice. The solid wood construction is very attractive, and the fronts look very cool and modern without the grills on.Read more ›
They are beutiful in the cherry finish. I am sure the ashe is as well.
My wife does not like exposed speakers generally, but these are so nice looking she said they make our room more beautiful.
It has a rear baffle so you can't put them right against the wall. Placement 6 - 10 inches away form the wall makes them sing.
They are great.
First impression - they are heavy! The box containing both speakers weighed over fifty pounds. Bet ya I am on the UPS guys deliver last list now. The speakers weigh 22 pounds apiece which usually bodes well.
Appearance - nice. No vinyl and the wood veneer is finished well. One thing you do not notice in the picture is the sides are actually panels added to the main box very much like the Polk LSCI series which is not only eye catching but increases stability.
Quick look inside. Completely insulated, wiring done with thick wire, and internal braces large. JBL did a first class job in not cuttting any corners.
Now for the main event! How do they sound. Bi-wired them to a Pioneer Elite 84, did the set up and sat back. At first a little bright but not to worry you need to break in new electronics. Fast forward three days.....
The best thing about these speakers is nothing. Huh you say. They simply reproduce the sound spectrum accurately. Imaging and seperation is excellant with a wide sound stage. I bought these for my bedroom set-up to replace a pair of Polk Monitor 40s which are good speakers with most sounds but which seemed to stumble a little when hit with a full blast of symphony instruments seeming to lose a couple in transition while the JBLs reproduced the full range. Voices are clear, individual instruments distinct, doesn't wear your ears out and bass for a bookshelf is not bad.
While not quite as accurate as the Polk Rti 10s in my main set-up they work well and it would be hard to find a bookshelf that would put the Ls to shame.
Overall good construction, easy on the eyes, and pumps out some good sounds. Only downside is that if you decide to really rock the house they seem to lose a little something right below nose bleed level.
