JBL  Studio 230 Bookshelf Speaker

Part #: JBLSTUDIO230  |   Mfg #: Studio 230
 

For those in search of the purest, most powerful embodiment of legacy sound – and who want flexible speaker placement where that came from – we give you the new JBL Studio 230 2-way bookshelf loudspeakers. As part of the groundbreaking 10-piece JBL Studio 2 loudspeaker series, the Studio 230 propels you into a world where legacy sound-craft and advanced technology go hand-in-hand in shaping a listening experience like none before. The Studio 230’s 6.5” PolyPlas midrange driver is designed to bring you pitch-perfect vocal clarity and tight bass that’s as accurate as it is cinematic. Add to that a built-in High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide design and a 1” CMMD Lite high-frequency driver, and you’ve got a loudspeaker that takes its cues from JBL’s own legendary M2 Master Reference Monitor. Combine this with the sleek, urbane design of the loudspeaker itself – both inside and out – and you’re dealing with a rare breed of sonic horsepower and brainpower ready to define its era.

Verry good speakers

By JBL Studio 230

from Serbia

Comments about JBL Studio 230 Bookshelf Speaker:

These speakers are best price/get. I am very glad to change my JBL Control One with these speakers. KeF Q300 have a better tweeter and clear sound but price is twice than JBL Studio 230. For these price rang maybe best buy. Tannoy V1i are good too but smaller than ST 230.

Speakers that punch above their weight

By Amir

from George Town Penang Malaysia

Comments about JBL Studio 230 Bookshelf Speaker:

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

Outstanding speakers

By Abbys Friend

from Topanga, Ca

Comments about JBL Studio 230 Bookshelf Speaker:

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.

They bring it !!

By Sully

from Minnetonka, MN, United States

Comments about JBL Studio 230 Bookshelf Speaker:

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!!

Big surprise in small packet

By Kanwal

from Norwalk, CT, United States

Comments about JBL Studio 230 Bookshelf Speaker:

I was surprised to listen the quality they produce with Yamaha RX-V675.. I bought it to listen only stereo music which i love. Right now I am listening them no more than -25 db as I live in apartment but I am waiting for time to play them on little bit louder.

Excellent speakers!

Comments about JBL Studio 230 Bookshelf Speaker:

We got these speakers to replace some excellent sounding but large 30 year old JBL L150's. We love the sound and wish we would have gotten them years ago!

I Have Finally "Heard the Truth"

By The Doctor

from Miami, FL, United States

Comments about JBL Studio 230 Bookshelf Speaker:

These JBL 230's are sitting on my desk next to my laptop using JMedia player They are sitting on Isoacaustic stands. I am driving them with Parasound Zdac, Zpre, and Zamp. If I had to describe these speakers with one word I would choose "integrity". Every instrument is held in it's own acoustic space and I feel I am getting all of the information that was present in the recording space that these speakers are capable of presenting within their frequency range. I haven't added a sub yet because I wanted to hear them alone first. Listening to Ella Fitzgerald sing Georgia on My Mind backed by Nelson Riddle the horn section just leaps from the speakers at the beginning and then when Ella begins singing her voice is so delicate but so strongly enveloped by the orchestra it just seems "right". Now book shelf speakers don't have the dynamics of floorstanders but I didn't hear any type of tinny compression. What I do hear is a soundstage that extends about 3 feet outside of the speakers and a sweet spot that stays locked in even while I am moving around in my chair while I am working. The Parasound Z components are great and I am sure that driving these speakers with high quaity separates helps them sound their best. I look forward to pairing with a sub to add that dynamic range. The thing that is eating away at me now is wondering how this pairs big brothers would sound like the 290's or even a full surround system. The other thought that occurred to me while listening to these is I'll bet some of the recordings I listened to were mastered on JBL Pro speakers so of course the home speakers would likely give me that "integrity" of what the mastering engineer created. Thank you JBL!
