I also would consider new speakers and an amplifier at the same price point if you think it will sound better. A: This is a great follow-up to my recent column about new vs. Your JBLs are one of those rare examples of vintage speakers that still hold up pretty well.
There is still a huge appreciation and desire for these great looking, great sounding vintage JBL loudspeaker systems. We think consumers are going to love this loudspeaker. Designed by Chris Hagen, the new JBL L Classic sports a new titanium dome tweeter, new drivers, an updated crossover design and tuned enclosure.

That looks like a 15", but I definitely saw the speakers with the 12" on sale here years ago many years actually. I remember a version without the segmental horn on top with 12" cones but I never saw any of these. They are configured for tri amping as well.

It's harder and harder to tell if it's vintage or retro, because most people do not seem to differentiate these concepts. Let's repeat then: 'retro' is a fashion that refers to the style of design from many years ago. In retro, it's all about an impression of returning to what once was, an appearance, not an essence.
I recorded this video in June, The A speakers are sitting on angled floor stands I made from solid oak using the JBL drawings for the original factory stands. Hope you enjoy.
All reflect in one way or another various current trends in 'bookshelf' design and all except one are British designed and built, despite the fact that Rotel has its home base in Japan. Interestingly this model stands apart in several other respects too, but more of that later on. For a review of this nature it makes good sense to employ a group of listeners, to obtain a consensus of opinion and to help make the auditioning as objective as possible.
