JBL Studio 530 (Cherry) Bookshelf Speakers

 

I am a speaker junkie, and longtime audio afficionado. I got bitten by the audio bug by listening to my father play music on his vintage FISHER 500C as a child then teen, with those glorious Telefunken tubes imparting their magic in our living room...

JBL Studio 530: About as good as it gets, or, the Willie Nelson of bookshelf speakers.

JBL Studio 530 (Cherry) Bookshelf Speakers

 

The JBL Studio 530 caught my eye due to it's style and the horn loaded tweeter. I had avoided horn loading of tweeters on affordable speakers due to brightness I have heard. I had also read good things about JBL's top of the line speakers with vertical...
