Default JBL 4319 or JBL 120Ti

I am looking for speakers that excel in vocal and string reproduction.

I also listen to all of the videos on youtube for the 4319 and 4429, and it seems that the 4429 is a bit more refined then the 4319 and improve clarity.

I have heard the 4319 and 4329 speakers from the middle 1980's. No doubt, a wonderful sound from both - - IF you are listening to wonderful recordings; e.g. a Jazz Cd recorded on "Concord." Trying to find either of these is going to be a challenge if not worse from within the U.S.A. A little better, however, and just a bit easier to locate for less would be the JBL 120Ti speaker system. Give them mid-priced "nice" cables and interconnects, and up to 200 wpc and a great recording (as mentioned above) and you'll have voices come to life and strings so real, e.g. Jeff Golub or Eric Clapton, you'll need to plotz!!

Good luck to you!

YouTube videos can give you a clue how they sound, but I have the 4429 at home. Especially the high and ultra high compression drivers are fabulous. I had never before that detail and clarity in any speaker I had before. And voices... I love them too and I hear them like never before.

What amplification do you use if you don't mind me asking? Tubes or SS?

Hi,

I am interested in getting a pair of 4429 but do have a concern. Will 4429 work in a small room, 9.8ft(3m) by 12.4ft(3.8m)? Will it boom? It will be a nearfield listening. Looking forward to your advice.

Thanks

Am guessing the 4429 would work fine in the near-field, but that's a big speaker in that small a room. You might find the JBL RP-600M interesting: https://www.stereophile.com/content/...0m-loudspeaker

Herb Reichert says in his review that he has made an "important discover" in the sound quality of Klipsch speakers. I wonder where he has been over the past 73 years. I suppose following the crowd like most others who are unaware and less demanding of hearing realistic sound in their home.

Hi everybody!

I am recent owner of one of this pair of wonderful speakers.

Now playing with a McIntosh MC275 but seriously thinking of replacing it with a SS amplifier.
For now my list is reduced to:
Mc462
Ps Audio BHK 250
Moon 400M
Bryston 4B SST3

I have no possibility of auditioning them beforehand for what I would appreciate your advice.
I listen mainly to rock music

Many thanks in advance and greetings from Spain!
