Highlights

You’ll never look at your bookshelves the same… … or wherever else you decide to place these uncannily adept JBL® loudspeakers. As part of the new 10-piece JBL Studio 2 loudspeaker series, the Studio 220 bookshelf speaker was built to speak the languages of both legacy sound and forward-thinking technology. Tested relentlessly in the world’s most advanced sound research lab – our own – as well as pitted against competitors in real world comparative listening studies, we’ve engineered this loudspeaker to go above and beyond. We incorporated a front-firing 4” PolyPlas midrange speaker and a rear-firing Slipstream bass port that envelop listeners in tight, accurate bass. We always could have stopped there – but that’s not the JBL way. We took other design cues from our work building the world’s most legendary recording studios, giving our Studio 220 the kind of performance sound normally found at cinemas and multiplexes: a 1” CMMD® Lite high-frequency driver that ensures low-distortion, and a High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide design that offers pinpoint sound imaging and studio-grade balance. Then we topped it off with seductive features like gloss black paneling, soft rounded edges, and your choice of either Black or Espresso wood-grain finish. We ran wild with sound and vision, combining the power and precision of high-tech audio with the sleek urbanity of “it-factor” design. For those able to hear the truth, we’re confident you’ll hear it full volume – at first listen.

We have years of JBL acoustic testing under our belt to back our sound up. With its 4” PolyPlas driver delivering unrivaled midrange accuracy and power, we’ll let a masterpiece speak for itself

The consummation of 67 years of pioneering sound research at our JBL labs, the Studio 220 incorporates bold technologies like a High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide and a 1” CMMD Lite high-frequency driver into its design. Together, these advances let you experience your sound cinematically – in all its precision imaging, high-frequency detail, natural balance, and full spectrum mastery.

The JBL way is to make it look as good as it sounds. And with the Studio 220, we’ve made no exception. With 21st century elegance that incorporates soft-rounded edges, black gloss paneling, and soft-touch paint, we’ve built something that seduces the eye as much as it commands the ear

Studio 220 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from shocking Have always liked JBL. In the past 4 years I've tried some other brands...hi and low end stuff. Got these because they look so good. The shock factor came from the rich full range. Just a well made and great sounding speaker. Thank you Harman.

Can Yamaha A-S301BL power amplifier suppor JBL 220 speakers? If not, which amplifier you can recommend?

Asked by: Monkey
Yes, the STUDIO 220 speakers can handle up to 125 watts per channel. Any receiver with a power output of 125 watts per channel or less will work fine with these speakers.

how much do they weigh and what is the difference in sound are they then the es230

Asked by: jazzman
Each speaker weighs 17.4 pounds. It's difficult to describe a difference in sound. While the ES230 speakers are considered to be a higher quality speakers (3-way designed as opposed to 2-way, higher wattage rating, greater frequency response), there are many that say the STUDIO 230 sounds better. You see, sonic preference is a matter of opinion. Some felt the ES230 had too much high end, where others love it. I'm sorry the answer is not more decisive.
