Rated 4 out of 5áby Verified Reviewer Great small speakers
Excellent small speakers, incredible value for money at ú49. Not much bass output as you would expect but great midrange and treble. Supplied with wall mounting brackets.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Gutdoctor Accurate speakers
We are becoming used to ever increasing amounts of sub-bass and Control 1's are not going to deliver this but...
If you want an extremely detailed and accurate sound with surprising depth for their size and huge power handling ability then you can't go wrong. I bought them at ú49 and the service from Richer Sounds was excellent.
I'm using these for my PC for music and DAW work. Paired to an old Arcam Alpha 2. They sound superb.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Konzentr8 Superbly transparent
I have had these on my "wish list" for months .The price from other sellers has shot up dramatically recently so when i spotted that RS were doing them @ ú49 for instore customers i finally grabbed a pair.
About a year ago i got my first taste of Tripath amplifiers by way of a little Lapai from China.I have owned numerous amplifiers over the 30 or so years and like thousands before me was blown away by the sound it produced .
After many months of research i eventually bought a Topping TP 10 mk 4 which is based on a 2024 chip . This produces around 6-9 watts dependant on power supply and speaker load.
Despite the low ouput matched well the sound of these tiny little amplifiers is astonishingly good having detail, transparency and timing.
Which is were the JBL 's come in,having high sensitivity and a superbly musical and clear midrange. For the money and size there's nothing that comes close to making music sound as good as these little speakers

Rated 4 out of 5áby Richielh Great value for Money
I use these speakers for surround sound and at under ú50 a pair, are amazing value for money. Richer Sounds have excelled there as they are a good ú20-30 more in other places.
Pretty rugged speakers with a rubberised cabinet rather then the usual veneer/chipboard construction and it comes with a wall bracket, perfect for setting up at the right height on a wall. As these are not my main speakers, I cannot really comment on its quality of sound but for surround sound, they are great.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AndyMac700 Perfect speaker for my needs
I'm no audiophile, and needed speakers for my motorhome. These are well made and sturdy enough to survive the environment they are in. The sound quality over what was there before is an almost unbelievable improvement. I'm very pleased with these speakers, and the open box price I paid seems very good value.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 50plus A Modern Classic
Do not be put off by the apparently plasticky finish of this product.
This is a strong and reliable design that has stood the test of time.
Take a look at the number in use at pubs,clubs and restaurants.
The sound quality has a depth and power that is much greater than
the physical size of the item would suggest.
Ideal for a second or mini system and also for surround sound type
applications - they are even supplied with their own wall brackets.
Probably not quite what the true hi-if enthusiast would want as their
main speakers but an excellent choice in this price bracket.
If there is a down side it is that the terminals will only accept bare wires.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Rolf72 Ideal Original Replacement
Reinstating the old stereo system, I needed to replace the original oversized speakers with a smaller equivalent. These JBL fitted the bill exactly.
