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......

Best speakers under $1k

 

I got quite a deal for these speakers on Amazon at the end of 2009 at about half of what they normally cost but after hearing these speakers, I would've paid full price for them, no doubt about it. I researched quite exensively, going to various stores...

Excellent highs, mids and lows. Good, solid construction. Great looking speakers too

Not really a con but they are quite heavy so they were expensive to ship

a pair of jbl studio L series

 

i orriginally had 4 6 inch bookshelf speakers and i bought a pair of these to replace them and i love them, i get more sound and their crystal clear. i never regret the purchase

Just can't be beat!

 

These speakers sound better than anything in their price range. In fact, you'll have to spend a whole lot more to before you hear anything noticeably better. I can't believe that more people haven't heard about these excellent speakers! I've listened...

Outstanding lows mids and highs

size: There's bigger than you think from the pictures. Weight: They're pretty heavy but that means they're well made

Amazing sound and build quality

 

I spent the first two weeks I owned these speakers relistening to all my favorite songs. It's amazing how well these speakers produce an acurate soundstage. Vocals on any song are great but put on some Diana Krall or Nora Jones and shivers will go down...

Sound quality is as good or better than speakers costing over 1k a pair. The highs are light and airy, with usuable bass down to 40hz. But where this series shines is creating a 3D sound stage from a pair of speakers, simply amazing for the price

I can't see why they're called "bookshelf" speakers. I've never owned a bookshelf large enough to hold speakers as big as these. Place them on stands and use them as your main speakers with a sub and you will be HAPPY

They sound like full floorstanding tower speakers

 

I purchased a paif of these from Harman Kardon's online eBay store for $185 and they are flawless. The sound quality is incredible.

Appearance and sound quality
