i keep it at low and the denon is cool to the touch no matter how many hours i use it throughout the day.
I can vouch for this. I use the same fans on an old onkyo tx-nr609. Without them it can get pretty hot, but with them on it stays much cooler. Best to set them near the edge blowing out so they draw the heat away.

Yes, receivers and amplifiers get hot during use. Some, like current Denon/Marantz models and older Onkyos, get hotter than others during 'normal' use.

Yup. An active cooling system can help draw the excess heat away.



Later on down the road as an upgrade, you could add at least a three-channel amp and let the receiver only handle the surrounds and overheads... or just the four overheads with a five or seven channel amp for the rest.


The sound and dynamics will open up and there will be less heat produced by the receiver. That's what a lot of us do. As for myself, after I amassed enough external power amps, I switched over to a pre-amp/processor when it was time to upgrade my surround decoder.

5 pairs is 10 speakers. They were only available at $330 per pair during the sale.

I only got to listen to my 530's for a half hour before I went out of town for a week. Just got back in town late last night, and finally had a good bit more time with them, and a better chance to compare them to my 590 towers.

Count me among those who say the 530's are better for movies, and the 590's for music, especially if you like your music at all loud. I think I will leave my 590 surrounds at +/- 80 degrees from center, and play multichannel stereo out of them, which gives me a ridiculously wide and seamless soundstage for music. For movies, I'll just take the wires out of those 590 surrounds and stick them in the 530's on stands. Crossed at 80 Hz, they sound fantastic, and pair beautifully with my 590 Left/Center/Right fronts (which I cross at 60 Hz).

All that to say, I'm glad to have both the 590's and the 530's. And since I listen to music over movies 90/10, it will work just fine to leave the towers out all the time, and only pull out the 530's when I'm watching a movie.

I can vouch for the 590s being great for music although I cannot conclusively say yet that movies won't be good. My relatively lesser satisfaction for movies could stem from the fact that I have not plugged the center 590 in yet and since this is a temporary arrangement until my theater is done in the basement, I am using Martin Logan 2 for center and surround and sub. They are really abysmal in quality and I sincerely hope when I have the theater, put the 590 as a center and add some good surrounds and a sub the experience may be different.

I emailed JBL a week ago asking them a few questions.

1) I asked them how they would handle the warranty of the 5 series after its been discontinued
2) I asked them if they happen to know when the 6 series is coming out
3) I asked them if they were going to get anymore 530's

and this is the email they sent me. At this point im not sure what to think, but from what I can see and the pattern that Ive seen from people online it looks like the 5 series is at the end of its life and they are probably done building them. They havnt had any 560p subs for a while now and I wanted to grab 1 more for my bedroom (since i have 2 in my living room) but it doesnt look like I'll be getting that chance either (I also forgot to ask about them in my email). Hopefully they have some hidden 5 series stock somewhere that gets put up for sale, or a batch that ends up as refurbished. I'd love to grab 1 more set of 530's and a 560p, but based on the history of how long those were out of stock i wont keep my hopes up for that.

we will see, i still think that another run of 530's is going to happen.. probably in the fall...no worries , there are so many options out there , you can't run out of choices..... and there are other choices that are just as good for many of us , it's just a matter of keeping after it..

Gotta say, just listened to the 530s for the first time paired with a Yamaha AS801 in a mid/large sized room. probably had the knob halfway turned playing around 80DB.
Sounded amazing.

For some reason when I tried the 580s in the same room a while ago, they didn't sound as good!
Suspect I may have had the wires wrong, didn't have it turned up as high, or something.
The 580s are paired with a 550P sub in a different room as a TV setup with a Marantz SR6006.


It's a shame we can't make the 590s work aesthetically in the non-TV room.

Need to replace some old Infinity SM120s in there, shame to have the AS801 not used on better speakers.

Hi guys, im new to this forum and have been reading through this thread lately. I have owned the 530's for a couple of years now and absolutely love them for music. Ive been wanting to get the 580's or 590's for years but they arent easy to buy here. JBL direct doesn't sell them in Australia, and JBL US doesn't ship outside of US. So pretty much the only place to get them is through select dealers and they always charge full retail price here. But very happy to say I got lucky recently and a dealer offered me a pair of 580's in cherry for only slightly more then the US sale price including shipping. So I jumped on it straight away. I think they will arrive tomorrow! Cant wait.



Interesting to see the new 6 series is coming soon. Looks like they may already be available in Singapore and Japan. I wonder how they'll compare to the 5 series. I like the look of them. Hopefully they deliver the same magic! I wanted to post links to those sites but cant because its my first post. If you google "JBL Studio 698" they come up on the first page.

Looks like pussycat is right about the studio 6 which means No last batch of 530s are coming. I guess if i want another 530 i better grab one while there still under $600 since these will be back to higher prices again soon and almost impossible to find now that the studio 6 series is already for sale on the JBL website un japan which means the US will get them very soon once they make it to the USA JBL wearhouses.

I should probably clarify: the 590 towers are in no way BAD for movies. It's just that the 530s are even better as surrounds, at least in my setup.

When I switched from Studio 230s as surrounds to the 590s, it was a significant improvement, so timber matching was a big step in the right direction. It's just that the 530s give me another step in that direction, specifically for movies. For music, the all-590 setup is still king (of anything I've tried.)

Did you perform a new complete speaker calibration. Each time you switched speakers from the 530 to the 590?.

I am not following. Are you saying you used 590s as surrounds?

If your truly interested in getting the 530. I hope that they will be available again at that sale price.

Like the saying. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

Thats a lot of hope! I'm guessing you have the same chance of winning the lottery as you would waiting for another set of 530's to show up on the JBL website, and even worse odds for them to be on sale for $300. Black friday, I'd except some 580's or 590s but thats about it since the stock of those has never run out. The 530s were the only ones that ever ran out and disapeared and because of that Id put the odds of the 530s coming back (thats not refurbished) at less than 1%.

Like the saying. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

Good luck.
i'm not sweating it at all .. if i was i woulda grabbed 2 pair during the sale.. i think there is *much* unnecessary angst and "i missed out" thoughts on these boards.. i was just trying to assure those that thought they "missed out" that they really didn't.. there is always something right around the corner.. i *was* interested in checking out the 530's at the sales price.. but at over $300 , not even a chance...

Thats called supply and demand. There are some for sale online right now and he wants to make a quick buck so hes trying to get $500, but as soon as reality hits for all those who think these are comming back in stock and its no longer for sale anywhere even ebay and becomes scarse like it was for the last two years they will sell for 1k. If he's smart, he'll hold them for a month the sell them.

Once everyone see's that JBL is selling the 6 series on their japan website people who need the 530's to finish there setup will buy up the last of the supply on ebay/amazon third party sellers pretty soon. I'm guessing they wont last a week.

The other reality is the 6 series speakers will likely integrate very well with the 5 series and with more bookshelf options, people may just choose to go that route.

that's a theory.. this guy ,imo, thought he was going to double his money very quickly ..and it isn't happening, the price drop tells me he's sweating.. did i mention he lives 100 miles from town , up in the mountains and is advertising on cl?.. not a brain surgeon , imo..... like i said .. it gives me a case of the giggles.. as far as your hypothetical scenarios.. they could all happen , but this guy isn't riding the train ...

This is true, and depending on the person they can decide to either mix the series or buy used if your the type of person who hates miss matching your audio (audiophiles tend to be this way). I wouldnt mine the studio 610's though, those look perfect to use as heights.

True, but this guy probably did what I did any everyone else and got $50 off two sets and if i was planning to sell the other set Id never sell for less than 600, and keep them as a computer setup because at $250 these 530s price was so good i felt like I stole them from JBL. If i can get a set of 610's I'll throw use my other set of 530s to my computer.
