"The Stage A170's high-frequency driver uses a 1" aluminum dome in something JBL calls a "high-definition imaging waveguide." I translate that to mean: The tweeter's dispersion is controlled on both the vertical and horizontal axis. You can translate that to mean the A170s are engineered to image well."

JBL's mighty little tower speaker is a keeper

"Don’t misjudge JBL's Stage A 170 by its plain vanilla looks. It’s a little powerhouse."

JBL Stage A170 Loudspeaker Review

"The Stage A170s projected an enormous, nicely detailed soundstage: one that appeared unusually detached from the speaker towers."

"The JBLs easily outdanced and out–rhythm'n'blues–ed every speaker I had in the house. They rolled music forward with ridiculous ease and, always, an unexpected sense of sophistication."

 JBL's mighty little tower speaker is a keeper

"The A170 made very ample bass, and it wasn't just the quantity of the bass, but also the quality of it. The sound took me back to the heady days of the 1970s when JBL was nearly every rock music fan's dream speaker. Those roots run deep."

"The heritage shone through: This speaker made a joyful sound; even when played pretty loud it didn't overtly strain or turn harsh. Bass definition was good, but it's the midbass texture/definition that grabbed and held my attention. When the need arose the A170 could deliver the warm growl of a baritone sax or the woody resonance of an acoustic bass."

"The JBL Stage A170 is a slam-dunk winner, and positive proof that "large" speakers have it all over similarly priced bookshelf, aka stand mount, speakers! If you're just now starting to get serious about the sound of your music, the A170 deserves your full attention."
