Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by Discombobulated

A single JBL Studio Series 590 Speaker retails for $999.95 on JBL. The bundle is also a very good deal since the Harman Kardon AVR 3700 7.2-channel receiver alone is priced from roughly ~$579 elsewhere online.

I have these and I think one of the best sounding towers I have heard, I even preferred them over speakers costing 2-3x the price. For the $$ I don't feel can match them. That is if you are looking for something that sounds great with or without a subwoofer.

They actually sound like you have a small separate subwoofer playing when running the speakers alone. And being horns they are smooth not the stereotypical painful or harshness related to some horns.

That price is AWESOME!

I'm new to home theatre and based off of the price research part of the post this is an amazing deal. But obviously still spendy. If anyone can help me, I have a few questions: 1) if I bought the receiver combo, what else would I need for a home theatre set up, specifically regarding speakers/sub woofers. And 2) while this seems to be an amazing deal based off of what they retail for, will these speakers, to someone who's no audiophile, be significantly and noticeably better than some less expensive speaker sets I've seen on here.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Only your ears can tell you... you'd need at least two rears a center and a sub. Something like an SVS PB-1000 would work great. Center could be the JBL 520 and you could use the JBL 530s for rears. It'd be pricey, but you're buying 590s, lol

I actually own both the AVR 3700 and these Studio 590's as my fronts. I don't think the AVR 3700 is quite powerful enough to get the most out of these speakers. I used the preouts on the 3700 into a JBL S7150 7x125 amplifier. To finish out I have 4 in wall Revel W890 speakers, a JBL Array 880 center and 2 JBL Sub 550P 10" subs. I worked for Harman so obviously pricing wasn't as big an issue, but can tell you these speakers sound fantastic, but powering them correctly is key. Harman always does blind listening tests to insure their speakers outperform the competition and the same price point and higher price points before going to market. At least they used to. These are 70lbs a piece as well so free shipping should be considered as well.

Thanks so much for the reply! I looked up pricing on what you mentioned, and yeah, definitely pricey haha. But it probably wouldn't make any sense to get these two speakers then skimp on all the others, would it? And I forgot to ask in my previous post - what are your thoughts on the receiver? If you were buying these speakers would you get the combo or just the speakers and get a better receiver?

Thanks! So I posted a reply to someone else where I asked about the receiver and it sounds like I'd be better served just getting the speakers and opting for a better receiver. Is that right?

For the guys who own - I noticed two rear ports on the speaker. I don't have enough space to put them that far off the wall. The simple fact is that sound will be reflected off the wall and create weird acoustics. Thoughts and feedback? Thanks.

If I were you, I would start with just the speakers and receiver. All you will need is speaker wire to get rolling. I haven't personally heard these but the consensus seems to be that they sound amazing.

If you decide you want more speakers in the future, you are going to want to "timbre match" the center and surrounds.

For the sub, you might decide you don't need one, but if you decide you do, you are probably going to want to do some reading before jumping in. In addition to the major brands, there are a bunch of really strong direct-to-consumer brands online.

I'd get the receiver combo, sell the receiver and buy the outlaw audio prepro/amp combo

I agree- if you are buying the speakers anyway, I would go for the combo too. That receiver is worth way more than $300. Very worst case, you can just sell it for $400-500 used and put it towards something else.
