Jbl studio 6 speakers! The new magic!

Since the new JBL studio 6 series has been released in JAPAN I figured the studio 6 series needs its own thread like the 5 series.

Here some information about the speakers from karmanaudio japan link

[Features]
All models come with a Teonex® diaphragm compression driver
The high-range unit of all STUDIO 6 series models (Subwoofer: Except STUDIO 660P) is equipped with a 25 mm diameter neodymium compression driver with Teonex® diaphragm developed by JBL Professional Divison, which boasts high resolution and clarity. With a rich expressive power and energy, it has acquired a supple and smooth tone.

Constant directivity horn design developed by JBL Professional
The compression driver and JBL Professional Division, as well as the constant definition horn using high definition imaging (HDI) horn technology developed for the latest professional monitor. By delivering sound with flat frequency response and uniform sound pressure over a large service area, a clear JBL tone echoes the listening room with accurate sound localization.

PolyPlas ■TM cone woofer mounted
PolyPlas were both lightness and stiffness TM mounting cone woofer and mid-range (STUDIO 698 only). Employs a unique SFG magnetic circuit that combines a pole piece structure that forms a symmetrical magnetic field and modulation distortion reduction technology. We realize clear low-to-low range reproduction with little distortion from small volume to high volume, and contribute to rhythmic low range reproduction and clear voice range reproduction only by JBL.

Optimized cabinet and port design
The cornerless cabinet structure that leads seamlessly from the front and rear baffles to the gently curved side panels suppresses radiation as well as elegance and plays a rich sound reproduction. In addition, we adopt the traditional bass reflex type enclosure provided with the flared bass reflex duct which suppresses the port noise on the back of the cabinet (STUDIO 660P is the bottom).

By wiring connection correspondence (only for STUDIO 698, STUDIO 690)
The floor-standing model of the STUDIO 698/680 uses a dual terminal system that separates the middle-high and low-pass filter circuits for each input terminal and suppresses the occurrence of intermodulation distortion. You can enjoy bi-wiring connection and bi-amp driving.

System configuration that demonstrates power during multi-channel playback
The STUDIO 6 series is a multi-purpose speaker series that supports AV / home theater, with a center speaker and an active subwoofer in addition to an extensive lineup from large floor systems to compact bookshelf models. The compression driver & horn of the same diaphragm adoption is adopted as all models, and the woofer of the diaphragm material which made the basic design common is carried. Furthermore, the crossover frequency and the characteristic are optimized, and the tone character of all the systems in the series is wonderfully unified. No matter which model in the series is combined, it is possible to construct a multi-channel system with uniform sound quality and spatial expression with a sense of unity.

I see JBL still made the mistake of not having included a mounting bracket for the smaller bookshelves since they don't seem to have made matching wall mount surround models this time either.

Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!

These definitely look much nicer than all of their previous offerings. I’m intrigued.

Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)

Interesting, the new 698 uses a 3 way design with a 6" mid range driver as well dual 8" woofers. Definitely not just a carbon copy of the Studio 5 series with a new look. I would love to hear how these sound, and if they are using the same compression driver as the 5 series along with the same woofers, etc.

The center looks beefier too than the 5 series but I would think could be a good match for the 5 series.

I would not try to convert foreign currency prices back to US prices. I would wait for JBL's official pricing as I doubt these will be cheaper than the 5 Series, but you never know.

Like the 5 series, the 6 series is using compression drivers (unlike the 2 series). The 2 series, on paper, looks like a cheaper speaker to me so it will be interesting to see how JBL prices the 6 series (relative to the 5 series and 2 series).

I find it interesting how inefficient they are becoming.

The 698 which uses dual 8” woofers only pulls a 90dB sensitivity.

The center with dual 5.25” woofers has a 85dB sensitivity.

The 2 series uses cheaper drivers, and falls behind in power handling -- the Studio 5 is clearly on another level -- I have owned the Arena, Studio 2, and Studio 5 bookshelf speakers -- the Studio 2 is in the middle

At least it's not a dual 4" woofer setup for the center.

And they look a hell of a lot better than the 5 series which made Emotiva's speakers look almost handsome in comparison!

Hahaha!

I think when these get released I’ll give them the 30 day run through and return them with the free return shipping.

When they go on sale.

I don’t know if I’d like to dish out $1000 for a pair of bookshelves!

I saw the 698 in person last Friday, the fit and finish is pretty high, the veneer looks a lot more like real wood that the stuff they have used before. These are far more living-room friendly than the outgoing 5 series and the cheap looking 2 series. I was not able to listen unfortunately.

The bottom most woofer is ~20 cm from the floor, which makes it hard to place behind a sound screen and not be behind the bottom frame. I was thinking about the 690 which won't have this issue; but Harmon are not selling those in japan. Not sure anyone would need the additional power handling the 698 will have over the 690 below 100 Hz if you have sub-woofers.

maybe I should just give up and get 4429's at only double the price.

And they look a hell of a lot better than the 5 series which made Emotiva's speakers look almost handsome in comparison!

Grilles on, the Studio 5 series actually look pretty slick, IMO. Like they are from the future or something. The Emotiva speakers remind me a lot of some old 90's Aiwa shelf system speakers. Butt ugly.

It sounds like Emotiva is changing the looks of the new Airmotiv line to be more appealing to the WAF.

Does anyone know if these are coming Stateside? The on-wall one looks like it might be a good height speaker for a 7-series base layer.

I don't see why they wouldn't. Probably in black only once more.
