I sold off my 2 pairs of jbls they were L100T3 and 120Ti. Iirc they were headed to thailand...popular brand up there for vintage stuff
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.

Not many JBL users in S'pore or just that not in this forum?

Is it only the "old folks" using JBL?  Says, those < 35 yr olds will never think of JBL?

Neither own nor use one before, but am considering one.

Honestly, never think of it at all but had fantastic fond memory of 4435, 55000, etc.

The good models are those made in the 1970(s) and 1980(s)

I am eyeing a l80t3. But not sure if it is good pairing with my all Emotiva gear which is very transparent, fast and detailed. I am using the l40t3 on other setup and quite happy with the SQ. Can any experts advice ?

It's true, really sad that most of my peers dont think highly of JBL. I think I'm one of the few folks below 35 who likes the JBL sound.

Actually come to think of it all of my 7.2 setup is JBL.

LR: JBL 4429
C: JBL Synthesis SAM3HA
Surrounds: JBL HTi 88 In Ceiling
Subs: JBL 550P
Amps:
- 2 Channel: Chord SPM 1050
- 5 Channel: JBL Synthesis 5165

Looking forward to meeting other fellow JBL-lers! (=

I ran my jbl L100T3’s and 120Ti's with my emotiva upa-1’s and upa-2, even upa-7 and xpa-5 no issues at all, sounded great. Only sold the speakers due to space constraints.

Can anyone comment on the sound differences between the old 43xx/44xx and the newer S series e.g. S4700?

The K2 & 4365 is beyond my budget or the size that my place can accommodate.
