Pros Delivers theater like sound
Cons The shape of the speakers are a little odd but I quickly got used to it.
Summary I originally purchased a polk audo setup that looked similar to the JBL but that is where it ended. The polk just did not deliver and was not a real upgrade from the KLH I was already using so I returned it only to find the JBL still in my price range. I am amazed by what comes out of such a small package. The mids and highs are crisp and the bass out of the sub will surprise you. I did alot of research and to me, this was my best option for under $500. I am a customer to JBL for life now.
Pros Sound quality is great. Big dynamic soundstage. Strong tight bass with no panel resonance or boom. Crisp treble and vocals. Able to run at high sound levels without much distortion. Good value for money. Decent instruction manual.
Cons Not much to fault. Visual style of speakers may not suit all installations.
Summary Recently bought this system and I am amazed at the sound quality. I am a fussy hifi enthusiast and have been disappointed with many all-in-1 systems like this in the past. eg Bose, KEF packages, but JBL have won me over on this one. I am using with Onkyo receiver and delighted with the sound quality.
