I remembered it as the 570 which was playing when he was visited. His comment was "They have no right to sound that good", but it may have been the 580s. I'll bet the 580 sounds great; 6.5" is about my favorite bass/mid size for a two way speaker.

You are probably right about that, it's been a few years. I have a pair of Klipsh surrounds with the 6.5 woofer and they do sound better, less boomy, wooly, than the 8 inch two ways in my shop.

I have the 580s out in the digital room. They are a nice, manageable size, compared to the 590s, which are heavier then hell and quite tall. The 580s are effortless and produce images that seem to float. I rarely listen to my Martin Logans anymore.

Hmmmm...effortless is a nice characteristic.

The 580's are $400 each at Amazon. Seems like a sweet deal.

if you want effortless you should listen to the M2's.  They will blow you away!

There ya go.  Buy my amp that's already got the tuning file and one is ready to go.

Not for me, I have too many speakers sitting around now. :duh:

Studio 530 Refurbished

Looks like there are a few refurbished Studio 530's left. I placed an order, we will see if they ship. I got the Studio 520C for Christmas which I really like and was looking out for a pair of 530's. Most that I have seen used were trying to sell them for over $700 a pair.

I’ve never heard these speakers. Just how listenable are they? Any brightness?

There are a number of more experienced/astute AKers (not stuck in the 70s) that own them and think they are very good speakers. JBL has free returns.

Thank you. These may be a good fit for a friend of mine whose budget is pretty limited.

The Studio 580 is on sale for $100 less than the Studio 590. I think the main difference is the use of twin 6 1/2" woofers in the 580 vs. twin 8" woofers in the 590.

My friend got the 580's. They're VERY listenable. He's running them with am Extron (they have a dual LM1875 chip in them, very nice sound). He needs a DAC, but it's still very easy on the ears.

I ordered a pair of the 580s, looking forward to hearing them. Couldn’t pass up the price of $600 and free returns if I don’t like them, but I doubt that will happen.
