im really not the right person to ask. i dont do a/b testing and sit for hours comparing speakers. i dont do spl meter, read graphs and all the technical stuff.
the aams definitely have more bass. perfect for a desktop if you dont want to use a sub.
i like the treble on the jbls more (i personally like a brighter sound), though i up the treble with the aams a bit. its hard to decide
i had klipsch rp160s and i loved those, i like the aams better. the highs and lows just sound more even, together, mellower. again, perfect for desktop use. no fatigue after hours of listening at all. i couldnt do that with the rp160s (couple hours was fine). i havent tried the 530s for desktop.
of all speakers ive owned though. the aams are the best bang for buck at $230 shipped, or the jbl 530s at $300 shipped.
cant decide on that one.
the aams have more hours on them than any other speaker ive owned and i think that says something. $230 shipped, geez man the kit itself is like $180 and unassembled.
i received these assembled and with upgraded crossover, shipped from the other side of the country.
one thing i have noticed about the 530s that is pretty awesome. not sure what audiophiles call it, dispersion maybe? soundstage?
no matter where you are in front of the speakers, in direct mode, if you stand to the left or the right, ,anywhere, the sound always seems like its right in front of you.
didnt get that so much before
