    You want classic JBL ?

    You could always look at Revel as I did. I sure think the big Ultima Salon 2's are a logical successor to my beloved 250Ti's. Large floor standing 4-way ? check. Advanced JBL drivers using latest...

    Love my LSR305's...not sure what has changed in the Mark II ? They make perfect office speakers.

    opinions vary

    In my audio travels over the last decade, I have run across a few JBL fans who actually prefer the other 104 variants to the 104h. There's no harm in you swapping them in to test it out, although as...

    I am in this same place with the Salons...there is so much more detail that it can be overwhelming at times. Other times, it's pure bliss - if the recording is very good you'd swear the band is in...

    Room treatments

    What you are describing is very similar to what I am going through (although at a lower stress/dissatisfaction level) with my recent 250Ti -> Revel Salon 2 switch. The Salons have a much wider...

    Welcome!

    Hey welcome to the sunny NorthEast :-)

    If you want to meet some local like-minded JBL (and vintage hi-fi in general) fans, I'd recommend surfing over to AudioKarma and keeping an eye on the...

    Great review - thanks for sharing!

    My Salon 2's also say "Made in Indonesia" on the box so I would wager that's the new Harman speaker facility in the East.

    One of my AK buddies posted that he knew the guy. I guess he worked for the Post Office and was known in the area as a buyer of this sort of gear (how could he not be?). It was also said he would...

    subs need separate amps

    I've lost count of the built-in amps I've lost in subs. If they die now (and the cab + driver are worth it) I use an external XOver and amp. The bass SPL is just death on the cheap circuits used in...

    I know it doesn't have a JBL badge, but I am seriously smitten with the Ultima Salon 2's. I mean c'mon - it's got inverted Ti drivers like the PT series, and a Be dome tweeter like the JBL big...
  14. missing one...

    No discussion of 12" 3-ways is complete without the 120Ti. Probably the best drivers of the older stuff, and a very nice looking cabinet to boot.

    One man's upgrade is another man's different

    What I mean (and said) was that I listened to 1400's and decided to keep my 250ti's. It was not worth the $10k US to upgrade.

    Read into that what you will....

    Congrats!

    Sounds like you got what you were looking for here - you'll enjoy them for a long time. I compared mine to some 1400's and didn't make the upgrade move. Mids are better for sure, but the 250Ti is...

    A Mac C220 would be close to your price range if you stretch a bit. It's not really a 'tube pre' in the classic sense (more like a SS pre with built in tube buffer) but it sounds really nice....
