JBL Control 5 monitors.

Some 15 years ago they were quite popular here in Holland.
I did a search on a couple of forums and found nothing.

Does anybody still use them, or are they completely gone?

I had a pair a little while back because I couldn't afford anything else. I only did a little mixing on them and although the speakers don't sound that great, the mixes are actually decent. I kinda think they have a NS10 sorta thing going for them. Not full range by any means, they are pretty weak on the lows. I'd like to think that they have the exaggerated mid-range that I like about NS10's, but it has been a while since I used them so...

Hi Ian

That was your post number 82 and my number 82 also

I have only mixed once on control 5's and kind of liked them.
I still have a pair of JBL TLX 2, which sound something alike.

Yeah, the NS10 is still kind of popular and I always listen to a mix on them, but I hate to hear that sound the whole day long.

Peace, Han
