JBL Studio 530


Look past their appearance and you?ve got a fun-sounding yet refined speaker, guaranteed to put a smile on your face

JBL Studio 530: About as good as it gets, or, the Willie Nelson of bookshelf speakers.

JBL Studio 530 (Cherry) Bookshelf Speakers


The JBL Studio 530 caught my eye due to it's style and the horn loaded tweeter. I had avoided horn loading of tweeters on affordable speakers due to brightness I have heard. I had also read good things about JBL's top of the line speakers with vertical...
