The JBL® Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker brings professional-quality sound to the home experience. The Studio 530 takes the technology that JBL engineers developed for pro-audio loudspeakers and uses it to deliver accurate and powerful sound to your living room. And it’s versatile: the Studio 530 can replay a left-channel signal, a right-channel signal or surround-sound channels. The Studio 530 features a 1-inch (25-millimeter) tweeter mounted on a glass-filled Bi-Radial® horn – the technology that JBL concert-sound systems use – to deliver concise, sustained high frequencies. A 5-1/4-inch (130-millimeter) PolyPlas™ cone with a Symmetrical Field Geometry™ (SFG) magnet assembly handles low frequencies.
Product Features:
  • 25 – 125 watts suggested amplifier power range
    JBL engineers have designed the Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker to deliver robust sound from a compatible AVR (audio/video receiver) or 25- to 125-watt power amplifier, whether you are using it as a stand-alone unit or as part of a surround-sound system.
  • 5-1/4" (130mm) ribbed PolyPlas woofer cone
    Powerful bass affects more than just your ears. It resonates through your entire body, creating a soundscape that you can feel as well as hear. The JBL Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker delivers accurate low-frequency sounds from a 4-inch (100-millimeter) ribbed PolyPlas woofer. The ribs improve strength, while reducing distortion. The result is rich, articulate bass.
  • Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnet assembly
    Thanks to a heavy-duty Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnet assembly, the Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker’s low-frequency woofer delivers highly focused bass. The result is pristine, articulate sound.
  • 1" (25mm) high-frequency compression driver
    The JBL Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker’s high-frequency compression driver lowers distortion and provides a wider dynamic range than is possible from conventional high-frequency and midrange drivers. The tweeter comprises a one-piece Teonex® diaphragm/surround assembly fitted with a 1-inch (25-millimeter) voice coil that can deliver enhanced vocal articulation.
  • Glass-filled ABS Bi-Radial high-frequency horn
    Horn-shaped loudspeaker designs optimize high-frequency output by directing the sound to the listener with pinpoint accuracy, thereby eliminating reverberations, sound reflections off walls, and other artifacts. The Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker features a glass-filled ABS Bi-Radial high-frequency horn that delivers professional-level sound to your home.
  • Low-loss, two-way crossover network
    The Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker’s low-loss, two-way crossover network ensures a clean transition for sound coming from individual low- and high-frequency drivers, thereby reducing distortion while improving clarity.
  • Bi-wire capability
    The Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker will work with multiple power amplifiers or connection setups – or both – for single-wire or bi-wire operation. The result is enhanced versatility in the way you can use the Studio 530 speaker.
  • Sturdy 3/4" (19mm) MDF enclosure
    The Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker’s cabinet is built with the same attention-to-sound-perfection as every other component. Rigid, heavily braced materials prevent unwanted resonance, while non-parallel surfaces eliminate sound interference.
  • Exclusive design
    The same attention to detail that went into the Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker’s technical design was paid to creating a powerful, sophisticated look that will fit within even the most discerning householder’s décor. The Studio 530 is available in a black or cherry finish.

Rated 5 van de 5 door uit great speaker for a good (low)price I have 4 pieces studio 530 with the center 520c I have them sit on my Rotel rsp1572 and rmb1555 and they sound great before I had expensive bw speakers cm s2 monitor series but the JBL 530 sound calmer and more open and better spread the sound comes well more from the speaker , I mean that the price is not always what it says about the quality of the speaker is just a pity that they are sold in the Netherlands no longer I myself would like to have the studio 570 as front speaker. I had to buy my studio 530 in Germany. jbl I want studio570 as a front speaker where I can buy them in Europe

Rated 5 van de 5 door uit First Great Sounding small speakers These are the best I have heard. Highs are not harsh, with a good amp there is detail, smooth extended highs, even though it is a 5" woofer there is "punch" in the bottom. I have been in pro audio for over 30 years and JBL at one point took a few hits with the reputation of "harsh mid and highs" this is not the case with the 530's as they are great in every respect.

Rated 5 van de 5 door uit Amazing speakers.... Replaced my pioneer fs52 Andrew Jones tower speakers with a pair of these and the sound is night and day. These things have full, rich and very detailed sound which was something my pioneers were lacking. They are very suprising despite being only 1 5.25" driver and the bass is very nice, although im using a SVS PB-1000 anyways....highly recommended.

Rated 5 van de 5 door uit Fantastic sounding bookshelf speaker As you guessed I am a real JBL fan, and theses speakers after having bing run in are full of surprises. I've got them on wall mounts and the sound is so precise you won't believe. You don't need to drive them to get impeccable sound, and the design can't be copied, even the wife likes it They sound far better than my old XTi's and I never believed that could happen. So if you want to have a smile back on you're face then there's only one thing to do. Buy the Studio 530's

Rated 5 van de 5 door uit Best speakers I've ever owned! I just received these last Wednesday, and they are taking up all of my free time. I simply cannot quit listening to them. I've been interested in the Studio 5 Series since I first saw pictures online, I'm guessing around 2 years ago or so, but never dug deep enough into them to really learn that much about them until recently. JBL didn't seem to have effective marketing for these and it's a shame because they are trule excellent speakers. I've owned close to 20 pairs of speaker, and most have come and gone. I was always searching for that accurate high end sound, but didn't really want to spend several thousands of dollars to get there. At last, I didn't need to...these are it. The midrange clarity is beyond anything I've heard in my own house, and the bi-radial horn and compression driver is spot on. Never shrill, but always extremely detailed, and the imaging is so focused, I'm guessing because of the bi-radial horn, and it's limited side wall reflections that most all convention designs with dome tweeters suffer from. Bass response is respectable especially being just a 5.25". The speakers overall tonal balance is nearly perfect. Although this speaker is larger in person than it seems in pictures, and also even better looking, it's still not a large speaker, but the sense of scale to music is so much larger than their size would suggest, very big and life like. I've found some degree of fault with every speaker I've ever owned, and I have to say, so far, I find none with the Studio 530, and they easily fill my 13x19 foot listening space. I do however also use 3 subwoofers, but I have for years, not for pounding bass, but the reponse in the room is much smoother and the response much more even throughout the room. It's not because the 530's are deficient in the bass. The ONLY downside, is I really wanted a set in the cherry finish, but couldn't find any. These speakers already have a somewhat vintage look to them, but the cherry finish even more so, and would have looked a bit better in my mid-century themed listening area. Oh well, the black still looks quite nice too. I cannot recommend these enough, even if your budget is 3 times the asking price, you owe yourself at least a listen, and who knows, you may even end up saving money, these really are that good. The best consumer priced line JBL has done since at least the later 90's L series, and these may even be better than those. I do know these are quite a bit better than my JBL L80T's. Yes, the JBL name has been watered down over the years with many of their lower cost, big box store type speakers, but these are something entirely different. JBL is BACK!

Hi, are you planning on getting/producting any more of these speakers? Secondary markets are selling these are HUGE markups and hard to find. I have the 580s and 520c, but desperately looking for these to use as surrounds.

I'm thinking about purchasing these. I was curious if my Denon DRA-635R would power these properly?

Gevraagd door: Zeltergiest
Hi, the old Denon has 80watts/channel according to a quick google. Will they work? Sure. But.....that these speaker are very inefficient. This is helped by a slightly lower impendance of 6 Ohm which is a tad friendlier for your amp. For background listening it is fine, but when hosting a party beware - you will want to crank up the volume more than the receiver can handle. That means the amplifier will go 'clipping' and these will generally fry your tweeters. Also for the other amp related questions: In contrary to the JBL advice, I suggest you will use a heavier amplifier than the speaker rating. Why? A couple of reasons. 1. Clipping caused by a too weak amp will damage your speakers more than overpowering your speakers from an amp delivering too much power (shortly that is). You cannot hear clipping until it is too late, but you can hear the distortion when you crank up your speakers too far and you'll be rushing to the volume knob to lower the volume before much harm is done. 2. Depending on the construction of your amplifier, most of them will have lower distortion when they're not being pushed to the max. I recommend twice the amount of power (in this case a 250w/ch amp would be fine. 3. Some speakers are hard to drive. These speakers benefit from a good solid amp. In short, these are amazing speakers for the price, but given the low sensitivity, do not use them on weak amps. If you listen at reasonable levels (also mind the neighbors) a bigger amp is no issue. It is not a party speaker, it is hifi - and hold it's ground through a lot of seriously priced high-end speakers. A bargain if you can find them.

Which would be safest and best sounding power amp for the JBL Studio 530's between the Emotiva A-150 which can deliver 112.5 watts at 6 ohms per channel, or the Emotiva A-300 which delivers 225 watts per channel at 6 ohms? Extra wattage vs. under?

Gevraagd door: AudioAsker123
To utilize the speakers to their full potential, you will need to have the amplifier's power as close as possible to the speakers but not exceeding it since you will lose the ability to raise the volume without damaging the speakers. In this case the Emotiva A-150 would be the best choice for your Studio 530.

I am so impressed listening to my friends pair of JBL 530 speakers. I am wondering if JBL will consider making more of them. I was pleasantly surprised by these and would desperately love to own a pair of them. I have been a fan of JBL for many years.

Gevraagd door: Charlestheveteran
So far we haven't discussed anything yet about creating these speakers again as we have the Studio 2 series that is our current home audio system and would deliver better high frequency versatility, thanks to the pivoting and level adjusting feature for the tweeter. The pivoting feature allows you to position/direct the tweeter toward the listening area. Definitely providing a good audio quality.

It appears as though an 8ohm rated receiver will power these efficiently Am I right? I see they are 6ohm rated and I dont want to have any power issues. I am using Denon AVR X2200. Want them for L/R front speakers for movies.

Gevraagd door: Mark Hotochin
Yes, the STUDIO 530 speaker would work perfectly fine with your DENON AVR X2200. The STUDIO 530 can handle 125W at 6 Ohms. While your DENON AVR X2200 will provide 125W L/R at 6 or 8 Ohms.

Hi, it's possible make it work the Studio 530 like stereo set with a yamaha receiver RX-v373 5.1? Thanks.

Gevraagd door: Ethanz
If you are looking to set-up a 5.1 system, you can use the STUDIO 530 as part of that 5.1 system but if you are only looking to set-up a stereo system, then you can use just a pair of STUDIO 530's as your stereo speakers.

Hey guys, are these good for nearfield listening? I need something that will still image well, and produce it's intended frequency range within the confines of a small studio setting (desktop). I will only be about 3 ft from them. Please advise, thanks!

Gevraagd door: Xyrium
Yes, the STUDIO 530 speakers are perfect for a near field situation. Being that you will be 3 feet from them, the speakers should be 3 feet apart for proper stereo imaging.
