1st post here. I joined the JBL family a while back with a pair of L19. I do believe they are keepers. The pair I got are a bit rough on the cabinet finish ... but nothing a bit of TLC won't cure.
Here they are along with my Paisley Research AE400 and Energy Pro 22.
The Pro 22s, by the way, are being displaced by the L19s and the AE400s and the L19 have moved onto better stands.
I'm running a Sansui AU-7700 (54 wpc) ... but I'm cleaning up a Sony STR-V5 receiver (85 wpc) and a Technics SA-700 receiver (100 wpc). The JBL may move into a different listening area along with the Sansui. It's a nice sounding combination.
