I liked it for the most part, but wasn't happy with the center. Then again, my center is behind a very solid 55" TV. So I decided to allow Audyssey XT32 to fully correct the center speaker (since I probably need to do something to correct for the muffled sound it's inevitably producing due to such an obstacle) but leave all other speakers only corrected up to 1kHz.


Wow, very nice difference! I'll bet it will sound even better one day when I can put my center behind an acoustically transparent screen. But for now, this is pretty darn good. Think I'll stick with my Denon for now and save some money!
For others with 590 towers all the way around, along with Audyssey XT32, what settings do you find to be optimal?


I recently set all speakers to only correct up to 200 Hz. I did this based on Floyd Toole's book saying that room correction does more harm than good above the Schroeder frequency, which typically isn't more than 200 Hz to 300Hz in most home theaters.


Overall, I like this setup. Just always trying to figure out what might make it even better. :-)

For some reason, it would not let me do it on my iPad or android phone. If you are not on a computer, try that. I just got my order to go through.

Thanks they are for a friend and it looks like the order will go through on a computer but it says they are back ordered.

I am honestly surprised the 530's became available again, I thought JBL would discontinue them since it has been so long since they were available last in the US. For $299 shipped for a pair of these it is a steal.

I'm shocked the 530 bookshelf speakers have returned. Bought a pair! I already have five of the Studio 590 towers, and was debating two more, but my wife was ready to slap me around. When I told her about maybe getting these bookshelf speakers instead, she was more than happy to let me have them. :-)


Went through just fine using PayPal on my laptop.

I DON'T NEED THESE BUT I BOUGHT 2 PAIR ANYWAY.

I now own 3x 590's, 4x 580's and (once they ship and arrive) 4x 530's. I'm going to take the cheap satellite speakers I'm using for Atmos off of the ceiling and put the 530's in "height" positions instead. STOKED!

Same. Get to move my 270 surrounds to my bedroom. Studio 5 series in HT, and Studio 2 series in bedroom. So stoked!

What is everyone with existing 530’s for surrounds and rears using for speaker stands? I want something secure since the 530’s are so rare. Don’t want them falling over when I’m running the hell out of them.

Get something with a heavy or wide base, like these: https://www.amazon.com/Monolith-Inch...dp/B07DMCXX32/

You could even put some strapping around the 530 to hold it onto the stand...might look silly, but I'm thinking just some black elastic that wraps under the plate the speaker sits on. The most sturdy are side-clamping models, but they're typically just skinny aluminum and very anemic looking for what will surely be a beefy unit.

i ordered 530s and 520 for bedroom setup


ive read much good things about those 530s

i did like the klipsch rp160s i used to own which are also horn tweeters
