This review is from: JBL Loft 50 Three-way Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Pair)
Pros: Clarity, depth and fullness of sound, sound output, size, weight. Ease of hookup.
Cons: Not bi-amped. Had to use multi-purpose cement on the tiny rubber feet. Lack of carpet spikes. Jbl's poor packaging leaves little to protect the speakers during transit. I live in an apartment (my neighbors love me /sarcasm).
Other Thoughts: I can only do an apples to oranges review, since my last tower speakers were 8" MTX monitors over ten years ago, since then, I have had bookshelf speakers consisting of pre-klipsch Energy 6-1/2 inchers, then a set of 5-1/2 inch older Infinitys, and most recently what these bad boys are replacing, Polk T15. I wanted to stick with Energy/Jamo towers or Polk towers and did tons of research, but every single time I would open my wallet, the numerous sites I was looking at jumped the prices by as much as 50%, what on earth is going on in the speaker economy for pete's sake. Anyway, I was fed up with the paycheck waiting game and searched more, I saw these as a pair (which is rare for towers) for a dirt cheap price, but I have stayed away from JBL since my last bookshelf set of JBL's that I owned 20 years ago blew with barely any power going to them, and the receiver was not clipping either.
Anyway, these suckers blow everything I have ever owned away, including some classic Magnepans and those aforementioned pre-klipsch Energys, those bookshelves were the best thing I ever heard and set me back way more than what these JBL's cost me.
After hookup, I attempted to break the JBL's in. I didn't need to, they are AMAZING, I hear every resonance, every pitch, every carrying reverb, with the wave-guide tweeters, the sound-stage is always perfect, and every note seems to this non-audiophile to be perfectly reproduced.
I plan on finishing up my JBL system with Loft 30's for the rear and a Loft 20 for a center, maybe keeping my Yamaha sub or grabbing an Energy sub.
These are hooked up to a TX-SR444 Onkyo.
This review is from: Logitech K360 2.4GHz Wireless Keyboard - Black
Pros: Range, battery life, sturdiness, quality.
Other Thoughts: @Arthur D. Picking up some high MAH rechargable NiMHs is a good idea. You don't HAVE to use disposable AA's, I don't think the packaging EVER states this information. Nickle Metal Hydrides are cheap and last a LONG time. Most people have a few lying around anyway. I have about a dozen with two chargers because I hate to toss batteries in the first place. I have remotes and my child's toys etc... there's always a use for them. Stating using AAs as a con is just silly Mr D.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Baaqii A133 Micro HDMI Type D Male to HDMI Female plug Adapter HTC EVO 4G
Pros: Works, when you leave your device in the PERFECT position and never move it.
Cons: If you even so much as look at this adapter wrong, it will disconnect, or at least go snowy and send a loud horrible hiss through your tv/home theater's speakers.
Other Thoughts: Worthless. ZERO stars. Using high quality HDMI cable, with a Kindle Fire 8.9 HD.READ FULL REVIEW
