    I'll try to bring some resoruces to bear on this important and impressive new series by JBL.

    On this page you'll see the CES 2004 coverage by Audioholics:

    AVS Forums

    Here's a typical, mostly OT AVS Forum thread that went nowhere

    http://archive.avsforum.com/avs-vb/s...hreadid=369795

    except it produced a link to this early look from a French site, Cine Now! This site shows all the JBL product at the show.

    Sound and Vision

    Here's the obligatory link to Sound and Vision's report. This material gets repetitive, of course, but there are sometimes different points of view at least.

    The Cinema Vision line is also covered.

    Eark K's thread

    As it goes further down the page and into the archives, Earl's original thread should be linked for reference. There's a lot of good info.

    Thanks Dome!

    The French link: http://www.cinenow.com/fr/reportage.php/sid,842

    ...has some decent photos of the systems. The first thing that comes to mind is that even if these systems don't prove to be run away best sellers in the two channel arena, I bet they will kick ass in the HT environment. Since the two channel world is still shrinking and HT is where the smart money is at, I suppose JBL is showing it's smarts after all. I see it as fundamentally replacing much of the Synthesis stuff. Obviously those are complete systems with amps, room control, etc., but these speakers are quite on target for my ideal in the HT world. Despite their unorthodox styling, I bet they will do quite well.

    Cool Buying new

    Duke

    I hear what you're saying. My first new purchase of JBLs was my pair of L100s at full retail. Gosh, what a magnificent feeling for an eighteen year old to be putting those babes on lay-away! Even better, how great it was to pay them off and take them to my dorm room at nineteen.

    As a young parent and struggling professional, I got some new, inexpensive, additional JBLs over the years: LX300, Simply Cinema, etc., but I never dreamed I'd get brand new high line JBL stuff. Instead I bought really nice used gear, the first of note the L7s. (Still love 'em! )

    Then came professional success (gee, after only 25 years), a divorce (gee, after only 28 years), and a great deal on brand new Performance Series gear (gee, only 32 years after the L100s). So, you never know what'll happen. Your opportunity might be closer than you think. I still have a hard time believing I got the PS.

    Once the Project Array gear hits the streets, who knows what'll happen? Some rich guy buys 'em and his wife says "No way! Not in my house. Get those alien things out of here and get some Bose Cubes." (Excuse me, I have to after writing that word.) The next thing you know you find an ad on the 'net from some poor, suicidal sucker: Wife says "No." My loss your gain. JBL speakers. Best offer.

    Question How's your German?

    You may not be able to read this, but there are two nicely lit and photographed pictures of the side and rear of the horns.

    I'd rather have some old A5s. Best HT sound I heard was when I used A5s. Then I moved into a high-rise, goodbye.

    In the meantime, back on thread:

    This is pretty much the PR boilerplate, but interesting to see how the word is out there.

    Since the product has been formally announced, I think it is safe to show this. These are the original prototypes of the Array Series from 2003.
