Welcome aboard. I have a pair of B&W Nautilus 802s. I like them for different reasons. I would take a pair of 4343s over them in a heartbeat.......but my wife won't. I have listened to a lot of speakers that were claimed to be so accurate that but they sound to harsh or too flat for my tastes. I'm going to try some 4330s next. It's all a matter of taste. I would love to here a pair of the ones you have!

We're glad you found us and that you got your beautiful Ti6K speakers. I've heard both the Ti6K and Ti10k sets. The enclosure design is marvelous, and the drivers and networks are first class. :applaud:

Two key design elements are 1) the front speaker baffle, whose tapering shape keeps the baffle an ideal size for the successively smaller drivers as you go to the top, and 2) the special 4" inverted dome Titanium driver used in the midrange. This driver really delivers the goods, and you'll also see versions of it in the JBL Performance Series and in the Revel Ultima Series (both Harman International divisions). :blah:

Of course, if you're around here for a while, you'll see I'm a big fan of Titanium drivers and of JBL's newer designs. Your TiK Series speakers will be top flight gear for many years to come. :yes:

Enjoy!

BTW, please tell us what you like about the sound of the Ti6K.

And I own some Klipsch, along with my JBL. I love them. But I have Heresy IIs and JBL 4311s. To be honest, they compare quite favorably with one another. The 4311s go lower and the Heresys are more efficient.

Cool new system. Can't wait to hear your reviews.

i posted in av forum its oficial no words can describe them.,... i couldent wait to get them out of the box ...and when i did and saw there shiny finish i could not believe that they are realy mine ... stylish looks ...my room sucks in comparison ..i am sure if i built my self a dedicated home theater lounge these will realy shine..

if you saw these speakers you woould have noticed that they have no rear spealer binding posts ( they are placed on the botton of the speakers ) wich were a real challange to get the spealer wire sitteing comfortably under them ...but once i finished ...tightened the screws on one of the triamp binding posts ..i opened my ROTEL amps

i placed my music cd collection ....and OH ...MY....GOD do they sing ( this i did after a 48 hour brake in period radio fm broadcast) .........i alwayse woundered what it would be like when i read some reviews on high end speakers ...and the critics say they listened to there whole cd collection becase the sound was so different ...they heard things that were not there on their previous spealers ...and that is exactly what i am doing know...

to describe the sound i,ll close my eyes and say they are rich, clear, full, strong and i hope youl understand when i say they are as sweat as a strawbery

taste a strawbery now imagin the sound ....get it ..thats the best i can describe it....

future plans hopefull in october this year .....will move my ti6k as rears and buy a 7000$ ti10k (mains LR) i never put a price on great sound as i am sure u dont either ....anyho with 4 speakers towering over me .... ti10ks mains ....ti6k rears ...tik center ...and 600 watt tik sub ....i would be in my final resting place

my jbl dealer actualy advised against this set up he said that i should leave the ti6k as mains and buy the tiny ti2k as rears ( he said that they were desighned espesialy for that purpose ...) ...i will not do this i dont care what they were designed for i will not place those puny speakers as rears ....

what he displayed in the showroom was this ti6k mains ...tik sub ( wich blew me away he had LOTR demo and i can tell u he didnt say hear this he said feel this ...and boy did i feel it ...i actualy felt the bass waves hitting my head on ) 2 ti2k as rears and tik center....

it was marvelous but i want more than that so i am going to neglect his advice and am going (cross fingers with the ti10k wich are a foot taller than my ti6k....what do you think...i cant wait ...

ps i have a nickname for my speakers i call them my "VADERS" because they look so much like darth vaders mask (with grills on )

this is what i want in my room but instead of the B&W i want my VADERS

I have a magazine with a test report on the TI10K , but I have been thinking that it is probably not a good idea to post complete copyrighted articles in the forum. So anyone who would like to read the full test report, from The Audio Critic, (Summer/Fall 2002) should send me a PM.
An excerpt:


Striking in appearance, a near miss in performanceóthat sums up my take on the JBL Ti1OK....

They sounded bright and punchy in my room, detailed but much too aggressive. I shudder to think what they would have sounded like in a really live room, my main listening room being fairly dead....

How can I arrive at a balanced evaluation of the Ti10K? Its striking cosmetics and high-tech drivers certainly make an ambitious statement. Its midrange is flat and undistorted -and thatís important. But what about its miscalculated high-frequency response and a bass that isnít even close to that of the $499 Hsu Research VTF-2 subwoofer (see above)? At $3500 per side? And inconvenient to connect and to move, on top of everything else? I canít really give a ringing endorsement to a speaker like that, regardless of its positive qualities.

thank u so much on that review ...for some reason the tik speaker reviews are very rare you could find revel salon reviews more!....as for me i never read an oppinion of one critic ...it has to be at least 4 different critics if i want to pass judgment on any gear ..that critics father could have passed away just the night before he made the test on the ti10k ....he could have issues with the whole jbl company ..you never know ...so yah i would rather read a few more ...but thanks any way and i have been looking like crazy on reviews on the tik series in the internet ...with no luck so if any body know were i could find some especialy ti6k...i would be much obliged.(not customer reviews )

If you read Dutch, here's a review called "Perfect Contours."

http://www.mainpress.com/audiovision/Audio/Sound%20-%20Test%20Luidsprekers%20JBLTIK.htm

It describes the Ti6K as "...a beautiful performer with warm, deep, and full lows, and spicy yet not insistent highs."

http://www.audioheritage.org/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=8040&stc=1&d=1117490616

First off Iím not knocking the B&W loudspeakers, but with one single loudspeaker that is mismatched out of the entire batch can anyone see it? Matching the fronts up with the same loudspeaker can be a challenging issue, particularly when youíve got a very large TV monitor setting up front.

(Compromising positions) where and how do I place the centre channel? And in most cases itís a smaller loudspeaker that sits on top of the TV or below it. One the imaging is going to be flat as pancake without any decent sound or tone imaging not to mention the amount of bass that can come from the discrete (separate from one another) the full bandwidth in the centre channel can be a little wired when listening to on itís own in Dolby 5.1 mode.

Myself for example, I use smaller JBL control 5 and 1 series and thou they have limitations to how loud they can be played at, before my (intrenal instinct) tells me to back down a little bit, they are very manageable in terms to placement and fair quality of tonal voicing over the LCR fronts. :)
