"JBL has invested considerable time, talent, and energy into the 4349 and it shows."

"The 4349 is clean, like carnauba wax polished to a mirror finish clean."

"...the JBL 4349 is a serious and enjoyable product that I will be sad to see go."

"JBL packed a bunch of technology into this speaker and paid attention to several details during the design process, and that impressed me."

"Setting up the JBL 4349 Studio Monitor was super easy and I found a satisfying placement in short order"

"...if you are looking for an added sense of realism the 4349 does some magical things." "This is a compelling implementation of a vintage product that is immensely satisfying."

"It does things that no other speaker I’ve had in my system does—and I’ll miss those things."

"The JBL 4349 made instruments sound like real instruments. I know this sounds obvious, but even some fairly refined speakers may sound great without making the music sound real."

" I consider the 4349 to be a modern implementation of a classic that will stand up to the test of time."

"Soundstage was great with placement of the center image and instruments between the speakers solid and pinpoint."

"You get a vintage looking speaker with history mated with modern technology, and the results are stunning."

"I applaud JBL’s choices and the 4349 Studio Monitor is worth a listen and, in my opinion, an instant classic."
