The E50s are nice speakers. I have a pair as surrounds in a secondary system. I purchased the E50s in fall 2005 prior to JBL discontinuing them.
The L820s, which I have in a system in a small HT room with an LC2, rears, and two 15" subwoofers in large, ported enclosures, are much clearer than E50s.
The L820s have greater clarity than the E50s with well-recorded acoustic rock music.
You might look into the new JBL Studio 190s or 180s that a number of individuals have recently purchased and enthusiastically described.
