Hello I'm trying to decide on these JBL N38's they really seem like a nice speaker. I heard some in Best Buy the other day and after a little research found them on the web for a considerable saving. The only thing on the ones I heard the piano seemed a little harsh wondering if it was the room the cheap wire or the Sony receiver they were hooked up to and not the sonics of the speaker. I currently have some Yamaha NS 100XT's which I really like but it just seems like the bass is lacking although I just love the midrange on them. Plan on mateing them up to a Denon 3803 which should be arriving shortly. Looking forward to your comments. Thanks Tom j.
