    JBL Studio 230 reviews

    Studio 230 2-Way 6.5" Bookshelf Speakers - Pair (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another! great speaker model My renewed interested with JBL speakers started when I bought two pair of small bookshelf speakers for our bookstore. At the time I thought they were very good, but they eventually *vastly* exceeded my expectations - those speakers rock! Well, for the Studio 230's I went to great lengths to find a showroom that would play them for me - this time my expectations were much more ambitious: defeat the $1500 a pair Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) CM5's by performing as well for less than 25% of the cost. Here I am to tell the world that the Studio 230's met that challenge!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding speakers These Studio 230 speakers sound outstanding. I am very impressed with their excellent range from a deep full base to a clear and smooth high end. I have the Loft 40's and was satisfied with them until I heard the 230's. The 230's sound fuller and the base stronger. I'm afraid after getting the 230's the 40's are being moved to the back for surround duty. In true to JBL form the 230's deliver the legendary clear and undistorted sound that JBL has been known for for many years. I am very happy I got these speakers and would recommend them to anyone that still values true quality in sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speakers that punch above their weight I have onwed many speakers, chiefly are high end English speakers. English loudspeakers are great for musics, but when you need the punch from a movie or a concert, you definitely need JBLs. Im currently building a 7.2 channel system with all JBL studios. These speakers brings the absolute detail out of any DTS concert I have. I am hearing new details that Ive never heard before. This is an absolute recommended product

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They bring it !! I was tired of compressed music , computer speakers, sound bars. I listen to too much music to suffer. We I had a great pair of JBL book shelves in college, so 30 years ago..lost in moving around. I went back to the masters of sound. A new local record store had these on sale for $199.00 .. yes for the pair. I've set them up with a Yamaha Aventage receiver which brings 110W a channel ..grateful dead live shows are brought back to life, movies are only lacking a popcorn maker. Get em!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Beautiful Sounding as They Look!!! Since I already own a pair of the Studio L830s I must admit I wasn't expecting much. Boy was I shocked at the level of musicality these put out. Everything just sounds like real, natural music. Extremely organic in tone and a very sweet sounding treble and incredible midrange detail. Oh yeah and they image in ways I thought not possible at this price point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The midrange and bass is impressive. God looks and god build quality

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased Bought the 230's 2 weeks ago . These are a great value. No nonsense straightforward speaker. Built like a tank and sounds great with everything I throw at it. Very articulate high resolution . Getting a 235c center to match for ht.
    Date published: 2017-07-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A clear win for JBL I needed a pair of front channel speakers that would also work well musically. These are amazing . Very clean and clear. I was pleasantly surprised with the great bass response. When playing music I really don't even need the subwoofer. Probably the best investment in speakers that I have ever made.
