JBL Studio L Series L830 Bookshelf Speaker Reviewed


If you're shopping for a compact home theater speaker, but don't want to or can't install on-wall or in-wall speakers, may I suggest you check out the L830 from JBL. No other brand has been more synonymous with Hollywood theaters......

Nice sound


Nice sound, using these for *gasp* an old-fashioned stereo setup (ya know, a receiver + 2 speakers). I wanted speakers that were big enough and loud enough for the main living space of my apartment, but didn\'t have so much bass as to disturb the...
