JBL - 4312G Bookshelf Speakers (Pair) - $1750

I was trying to find a deal for the JBL L100, and found these are 30% off. Good deal on the 4312g minus the aesthetics of the L100 and wood veneer.

These are actually pro studio monitor speakers, not a "bookshelf" speaker. It's a reboot of the classic JBL 4300 series from the '70s and '80s.

I think "bookshelf" and "pro studio" would be misnomers for both the L100 and the 4312G. They're large and don't belong on a bookshelf. And there's nothing preventing someone for buying these for home use.

My father in law had the classic versions of these. If I had 2k to buy a pair of speakers, I would definitely consider these

You're right, there is no reason these could not be used at home, but most studio monitors have a different frequency balance compared to consumer models, which I believe was the point he was trying to make.

I understand. I don't believe these are voiced to be razor flat like Genelec or Neumann by any means based on this review: https://hometheaterhifi.com/revie...er-review/

Lots of interesting stuff on that site... look at the prices of the JBL HDI lineup... ooof.

Spiritual successor to the studio line that gets posted so much. Nicer/more conventional styling.

Brick and mortar is the way to go for the HDI speakers. You'll definitely get 10% off minimum especially when purchased as a package with an amp.

JBL - 4312G So does the "G" mean that it has a built-in graphics card?
