The JBL Studio 530 bookshelf speakers are finally back in stock after having sold out about six months ago, when they were last available for $299.95.

Buy them at the JBL website: https://www.jbl.com/STUDIO+530BK.html

or the Harman website: https://www.harmanaudio.com/STUDIO+530BK.html

They sold out pretty quickly last time!

Lol they already a steal @ 299.99 and this is most likely a one off final production run as they were discontinued back in June 2019. Every time they have become un-available the price on the second hand market sky rockets to 700-1000. Not saying to buy them to flip them, but that they are priced way below their value.

The giant 590s are on sale too. I've been waiting for a sale on the 580s but sadly those are the only ones that appear NOT to be on sale :\ Both JBL and Harmanaudio's websites are such barely-functional messes, it never ceases to amaze me.

I have been waiting on this since early June. I was so excited to finally see them back and discounted that I didn't even check!

I will be pairing the 530s with the 590s. They are terrific speakers, but giant indeed.

I've got 5 of the 590s, and a pair of the 530s, for the "base layer" on my 7.2.4 system. They sound fantastic. I'm not a fan of the 520C center, as I think it starts sounding boxy at loud volumes. But if you listen at reasonable volumes, then the center channel works well with the rest of them. I'm actually using one 590 tower behind my TV as a center, and it sounds surprisingly good. It will sound even better if I ever get a dedicated home theater, and can put it behind an acoustically transparent screen.

(FYI, I use JBL SCS8 for my overhead speakers, but those are special order only, and have to be bought through dealers rather than the JBL website.)

That sounds like an awesome system! I also was not a fan of the 520C. It is not a good match for the 590s. I didn't have room for the 590 as a center channel so I went with the Infinity RC263 and am very happy with it.

Have the 530s as surrounds to compliment my 590s. Used the 530s as a 2 channel system for about a week first. Great sounding speakers and quite hefty for their size.

I know, but I don't want refurbs when they've offered brand new for cheaper than that. I'll be patient Cool

edit - email codes don't seem to work because these are on sale

Last time they were posted in June they went OOS pretty fast and stayed OOS all the way until this month.
