Rated 4 out of 5áby Matt81 Small classic with a 90's rave look
Great set of monitor speakers won't blow your socks off but clear and loud enough with a classic look. Great service from Leicester branch, cheaper online so sold them me for the lower price.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BrotherFlower Compact value for money
These speakers are just right for bookcase or pedestal standing. I put mine on top of some vintage '60s Dynatrons. A well rounded sound for vinyl, tapes and streaming on demand TV or DAB radio. Oh, and they also come with their own wall mounting brackets - great value !!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Colin764 Good buy
I bought these on the off chance, for my daughter's party - I really didn't want to use my real hi-fi ones - so wasn't expecting TOO much.
I was very pleasantly surprised! Good power, little distortion and took a load of volume - coped really well, I was more concerned about my amplifier getting too hot, by the end of the evening.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Simes66 Superb little speakers
The JBL Control One has been around for a long time, and with good reason; these small speakers are simply very good, and excellent value. I've used them personally and professionally for years. Domestically they are excellent for kitchen or home office systems, professionally they are ideal for meeting rooms & classrooms as AV system speakers.
Sound quality wise, these speakers have excellent 'presence' making spoken word very clear, they are also very musical and forgiving of poor quality sources. In absolute terms they lack detail resolution, and can be slightly sharp in the treble. However, overall these little gems are a pleasure to listen to.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Tiredoldhector Great little speakers for the money
I'm very pleased with my JBL Control ONE's. They are a cracking pair of speakers for the money. I got them to go with my DENON DM39 micro system l recently got (also from Richer Sounds). They sound great, with plenty of bass for such small speakers, and look great as well. They even come with brackets to attach them to the wall. Due to a mix up, the courier returned them, but when I contacted Customer Services, they couldn't be more helpful. They sent me another pair the next day and refunded the delivery charge. Thanks very much.

Rated 4 out of 5áby progrockrules Fantastic for the money
OK - the downside - little bass - but what do you expect? Partner these with a reasonable sub' and for around ú200 you got a brilliant set up!
The speakers can put out a surprising amount of volume - the treble is - perhaps - a little over the top - not harsh but just slightly 'in yer face' so a bit of eq and you are sorted. Reasonably efficient so you wont need too much power to get a fair amount of wallop!
The wall mounts are brilliant - love em!
Seem well made and look pretty smart. OK - they are perhaps not top of the range audiophile units but - do you know - they sound sweet - and with a sub I am well impressed.
For the money you will not beat theses - but do get a sub to help out!
