I am in the process of looking for some small, reasonably priced bookshelf speakers for a dedicated two channel environment. I am trying to keep it under $800 and I have investigated many of the usual suspects in this price range (i.e. Gallo CL-2, Tekton M-Lore, KEF Q300, even the Ascend Sierra-1), but I stumbled onto the JBL Studio 530 and they piqued my interest. I have always written off JBL to the likes of Bose and many other base line consumer speakers, but these seem different. What I find most interesting is that there is almost nothing on the web about them from a review standpoint. I don't know what that means. Are they terrible or misunderstood and therefore overlooked? Anybody have any experience with them?
