JBL HDI-1600 Review
JBL is nothing if not passionate about audio. So when Steve Guttenberg of The Audiophiliac Daily Show (not to be confused with the actor from Three Men and a Baby) asked to review the new JBL HDI-1600 bookshelf loudspeakers, we jumped at the opportunity.
We were confident that Steve would love the speakers as much as we do. Here is one of our favorite excerpts from his review:
“To hear that size, that scale of the bass instrument was really impressive in terms of his fingers on the strings, the woodiness of the instrument, his free singing style, and I heard this guy do it for real. I was present for this entire session. I’m closing my eyes and I’m listening to it coming out of the 1600s, and I’m time traveling – I’m going back to the session. The speakers become a portal back in time.” (About listening to recording of Casey Abrams at a session he had attended in person.)
