I haven't had the opportunity to compare the two, but I do own the J/IV and the E/III and they are both excellent sounding/looking spks. (amp friendly as well). I've used both for music and movies and I'm completely satisfied. Both of these spks.(J/IV & E/III) are not shielded so be careful not to place too closely to TV monitor. For the prices these older Snell's are going for makes them a great bargain, as you know. (I would be curious to know if the E/IV was shielded? I'll bet it wasn't.) Good Luck Scott. Regards, Bill.
