JBL ES 20 Review

 

The JBL ES20 is an all-around bookshelf speaker that we particularly like for music reproduction with the single caveat that it is more power hungry and inefficient than other speakers within our review. It's also well-suited for use in a home theater...

The super tweeter makes treble response exceptional. Bass surpasses expectations.

The speaker tends to reveal shortcomings of other components in an audio system.

This is an awfully good small speaker that performs better than its specs suggest.

JBL ES20BK Bookshelf Loudspeakers Reviewed

 

The 10.3 lb. JBL ES20BK has a smooth modern look that also extends to its sonics. It's three-way design employs a "super-tweeter" that only begins operation at 12kHz. At only 86 dB efficient, the ES20 wants something better than a low-powered receiver...

The ES20 provides excellent performance and a very well balanced and enjoyable listening experience ; The ES20 performs well over all kinds of music material - classical,jazz, rock, vocal, etc., and can play loudly without breaking up ; The ES20 looks...

The ES20 needs good quality power to perform its best, and didn't sound nearly as good with budget receivers or amplifiers ; The ES20 doesn't provide any on-board mounting hardware ; The ES20 needs to sit at least 10-12 inches from the wall to sound...

The JBL ES20 offers sound quality on par with the best speakers in itsclass. It's smooth, detailed, punchy, airy, and transparent, with tinyflaws that never overly intrude into the presentation. Its coherenceand balance really shine, and its...

JBL ES20 Speaker System

 

Producing loudspeakers at mass-market prices is a thankless task. It takes the resources of a big company like Harman International to do it right. I've determined in one review after another that JBL has long been a budget-speaker champ. You could...

The JBL ES20 and crew are champions by budget-speaker standards. They deliver a refined top end that is nearly impossible to find elsewhere in this price range. How much of that is attributable to the super-tweeter may remain one of life's mysteries....

JBL ES20 review

 

The soundstage the JBLs present is rigid and plausible, and the taut bottom end well controlled. If it's shoot-me-from-a-cannon levels of exciteme

Nicely curvy cabinet ; energetic, upbeat sound

Tiring high-frequency clamour ; they look a bit low-rent in this company

These JBLs will put a rocket up your recordings whether they like it or not
