JBL Control 5 speakers

Great sound from a compact speaker. Just right for home or office.
Music background: College Professor and gig player

JBL Control 5

Sound is clear with some midrange brightness. The detail was interesting when compared to my B&W, the Control 5's could hear the reverb roll-off in more detail than my B&W's and Paradigms. Very surprised. Using as nearfield (1meter) monitors.
