Speakers that punch above their weight
I have onwed many speakers, chiefly are high end English speakers. English loudspeakers are great for musics, but when you need the punch from a movie or a concert, you definitely need JBLs. Im currently building a 7.2 channel system with all JBL studios. These speakers brings the absolute detail out of any DTS concert I have. I am hearing new details that Ive never heard before. This is an absolute recommended product

Another! great speaker model
My renewed interested with JBL speakers started when I bought two pair of small bookshelf speakers for our bookstore. At the time I thought they were very good, but they eventually *vastly* exceeded my expectations - those speakers rock! Well, for the Studio 230's I went to great lengths to find a showroom that would play them for me - this time my expectations were much more ambitious: defeat the $1500 a pair Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) CM5's by performing as well for less than 25% of the cost. Here I am to tell the world that the Studio 230's met that challenge!

As Beautiful Sounding as They Look!!!
Since I already own a pair of the Studio L830s I must admit I wasn't expecting much. Boy was I shocked at the level of musicality these put out. Everything just sounds like real, natural music. Extremely organic in tone and a very sweet sounding treble and incredible midrange detail. Oh yeah and they image in ways I thought not possible at this price point.

They bring it !!
I was tired of compressed music , computer speakers, sound bars. I listen to too much music to suffer. We I had a great pair of JBL book shelves in college, so 30 years ago..lost in moving around. I went back to the masters of sound. A new local record store had these on sale for $199.00 .. yes for the pair. I've set them up with a Yamaha Aventage receiver which brings 110W a channel ..grateful dead live shows are brought back to life, movies are only lacking a popcorn maker. Get em!!

Outstanding speakers
These Studio 230 speakers sound outstanding. I am very impressed with their excellent range from a deep full base to a clear and smooth high end. I have the Loft 40's and was satisfied with them until I heard the 230's. The 230's sound fuller and the base stronger.

I'm afraid after getting the 230's the 40's are being moved to the back for surround duty. In true to JBL form the 230's deliver the legendary clear and undistorted sound that JBL has been known for for many years. I am very happy I got these speakers and would recommend them to anyone that still values true quality in sound.

Astonishing sound,quality and appearance!
I just purchased these JBL Studio 230's to replace my rear surround speakers of 24 yrs. I love & appreciate good quality products & from the very moment you unpack these babies to the moment you connect them to your receiver-" they simply scream QUALITY"! They sound fabulous with pop,rock & awesome with movies! Dialogue & base are "phenomenal"! They are @ rear on stands with height of 23" & rear firing base ports toward walls don't hinder their performance in any way. Highly recommend these, waited approx. (6 mos. for them to go on sale @ $299.99 per pair. They sound as good as they look!

JBL STILL GREAT
I have been a fan for over 50 years, I own JBL 112. Was very surprised when I got these. They are very detailed and the bass is excellent for the size. Music takes you anywhere you want to be. Great job JBL, highly recommend.

I have a Harman kardon Hk 3390 running with Polk Tsx 220 and Bose 301. Should I hear any improvement with the Jbl 230 in sound quality removing the Bose and Jbl as Main speakers?
