I've owned the XPL90 in the past, nice speakers. Not much of deep bass but very decent dynamics.

Nice model of the JBL (Timbers) family to introduce yourself with, Krystian.

There is something universal about the compulsion to make speakers into lamp stands or some such furniture piece.

Hi there.

I think the look very good in your living room. They go well with the carpets.

Welcome, and congratulations on your new JBLs!

Those are hard enough to find in the U.S., they must be nearly impossible to be found in Poland.

Good for you! Enjoy.

Nice find I am sure you will enjoy them! They do like lots of good clean power.

Hello!
I understand that the better and more powerful amplifier is best for them ?
At this moment the speakers are driven by an old NAD 3400 monitor series, probably a little too weak but it is very musical what I like very much.
Could you suggest a good amp that should pull out all the best of these speakers, I will be very grateful.

Of course I know that the best option for those speakers, is biamping but finding a dx-1 in Europe is impossible.
In addition I'm looking DX-1 card dedicated to xpl200, if I could find it I would be able to build a complete dx-1.
Probably it would be the first dx-1 in Europe and the first such system based on it.

If someone has a card like this, or knows who may have please let me know.

Hi Krystian,

I already saw some DX-1 around in Germany and the Benelux however they never had the cards I wanted. I think that the easiest way for you would be to but a piece of DIY pcb and solder your own cards (or let someone do it). :)

Good to know, I have never seen dx-1 in Europe , apparently you had more luck than me :), not to mention about the card for xpl200.
I know that making this card by self is the fastest and cheapest way to completion dx-1. Unfortunately, I can not do this by my self but I have someone who could do this for me , I also managed to capture schemes thanks to this forum.

Some day I will tell you the story how I got these lovely speakers, to be onest I was looking for comletely diferent type of speakers but when I heard them for the first time I knew that I have to have them, and I have them:):)

That's good news, the cards shouldn't be that difficult to make.

I assume you've already seen this thread?

I don't know much about the DX-1 but if it uses electrolytic capacitors in the signal path, it should make a very nice improvement if you replace them with something better like Elna Silmic II or Muse KZ series from Nichicon for example.

I have to admit that I bought my 4343's without any listening (yes, €3500 speakers paid forward without listening :D).
No clue why I did that but I just saw them on one of Kenrick's videos on Youtube and I thought - I want 'em too!!!
I also owned the 4311A's before but they have nothing in common with the big 4 way monitors.
Their industrial look also did it for me...

The look of the 4343 is very attractive but I would call it professional.
