JBL Studio 500 series


Standard Member
So in America, the entire lineup of JBL 500 series are on Black Friday sales (they have numerous sales throughout the year); the 530 are $250, 570 are $400, 580 are $580 and 590 are $900 per pair.

Does anyone have any experience with any of the lineup? I see What Hifi reviewed them back in 2012 although I take their reviews with a bucket of salt. However I know in America, the JBL 500 series are highly praised nonetheless.

For those with experience of the lineup, how do they compare to similarly priced alternatives that are newer (considering the 500 series are 9 years old) - especially at their discounted prices

I know in the UK we are spoiled by our own manufacturers so have quite a different market to America

Pretty decent sounding speakers.
