JBL has released there redesigned Studio 1 Series loudspeaker, with quite a bold and attractive style in my opinion, but I have been a long-time fan of JBL. When I say redesign, I am referring to the exterior. JBL doesn’t mention any new cutting edge internals, but there still gonna sound great since proven components are being stuffed in. My eighteen year old LXE series speakers still sound great.
The newest JBL loudspeaker collection includes the JBL Studio 190 and Studio 180 floorstanding loudspeakers, the Studio 130 bookshelf loudspeaker, the JBL Studio 120c center-channel loudspeaker and the JBL Studio 150P subwoofer. [Read more…]
Harmon Kardon has pumped out a new surround bar called the SB 16 home theater soundbar system. We’re all familiar with surround bars and what they intend to accomplish (produce decent quality sound without the hassle of a full surround speaker array). Why Harmon Kardon? Well, really I don’t know other than I have been a fan of their products for a good many years now and the SB 16 sits right in the middle price range for surround bars at a suggested retail of $599.99.

Logitech is throwing out another THX certified speaker set. This 2.1 system is called Z623 and delivers 200 watts so it is large enough to sit next to a TV and deliver ample volume, but not so large that it can’t be used at a computer. THX doesn’t hand out their certification to just any speaker. A stringent performance standard must be met in order to qualify, so you can be sure that you’ll get good quality sound. If you’ve ever been to a THX certified theater, you know the kind of sound reproduction that THX demands.
The Logitech Z623 should be easy to connect to any computer, TV, music or video player with RCA and 3.5mm inputs. The Z623 is scheduled to be available in the U.S. and Europe in September for a suggested retail price of $149.99
