I researched a long time to find a good surround system to replace my old set. The Energy Take 5.1 gets the top online reviews, but I'm a tightwad so I always look for the "next best," "almost-as-good but cheaper" alternative without going all the way down to the lowest price no-name item. After studying everything, I settled on this set feeling it would suit my tastes for style, quality, and value and I was not disappointed.... too much.
Out of the box all the speakers have a nice heft to them, a feeling of good magnets and quality build. Fit and finish was excellent. I love the piano gloss black, but I was a little disappointed with the gray side panels of the subwoofer... from looking at the pics (I studied the gallery on JBL's website for more views) I assumed it would be silver or brushed aluminum looking, but it is battleship gray. Not a big deal because it doesn't show much, but still a little less than beautiful. The subwoofer did have a very impressive back panel...
I have a new Yamaha RX-V675 7.1 channel receiver, and wanted a new 5.1 speaker system,I chose these because of the reviews,My new receiver has Pure Direct,which bypasses all the sound programs and just plays to the front speakers,it also bypasses the sub.Before I get started on my review,let me say that I not one for heavy bass.Also,For this test I'm using Bose 161's.I started with the bose,since they were hooked up,I played mellow,jazz,blues,piano,heavy rock,classic rock,even Dean Martin,the JBL's have Awesome Crisp highs,but lack on the bass(without the sub),the Bose out performs in the bass department(remember,I'm not using the sub).The JBL's are great with the sub.I am using JBL's as my surround system with the center,and these are great for that.I would have given the JBL's 5 stars,if it had better bass.
I cant be more happy that I bought these speakers. they are of very good quality and looks stunning. I have coupled them with Onkyo 609. the end result is mind blowing. Pros the sub woofer is very powerful and in reality is more then what I require Gloss finish looks fabulous. cons somewhat an awkward shape of speakers makes it hard to place them on stands. however, if fixed to wall then its all good. Best thing of all is that I live in Australia and these speakers are not available locally. Amazon delivered them in 5 working days. that is unbelievable. Very happy JBL and Amazon Customer.
