JBL 308P MKII Reviews

Great Home Monitor Package!

By Gregg
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-14

I haven't used the speakers a lot yet, but everything so far is great! I very much appreciate having the cables, isolation pads and the Senal controller as part of the package. The cabinets are larger than I expected so I will eventually buy some floor stands and put them behind my work table to give me a bit more setback. Very happy with the purchase but I would also consider the smaller speakers.

LOVE IT

I have a pair of 308 MkII (to jam on a PC) and 305 MkII (for a keyboard). I am blown away from the sound of both. I am an audiophile with expensive speakers in every room I can fit them including some that cost over 10K each and these little JBL studio monitors give just as much detail as the big boys.

Awesome awesome awesome. Perfect for what I needed. I am using this setup to practice my bass along to so NOT having the subwoofer is ok. Other than that, if used for more general monitoring, I would suggest the subwoofer.

This is a great kit for hooking up your laptop to pristine studio monitors. It's all there and at a fair price. But most importantly, these JBL's sound terrific. They produce accurately and without strain. You can certainly spend more on 8" monitors and to some ears and on paper others may seem better, but to me, these JBL's look good enough on paper and sound fabulous in my studio. I would heartily recommend them.

Great Overall Monitor

It supports both US and European voltages so all you would need is a standard US to German plug adapter not a voltage convertor. Also, the end which goes into the speaker is the standard computer power cable format so a cable should be easy to find.

None of my audio output devices have balanced connections - yet the back of the 305P's only have balanced inputs. If I use, let's say an audio cable that has a TRS connector on end (going to the speakers), and an RCA cable on the other end (going to my audio sources), will this work with the 305's?
Asked by: Bernd
It will work. For instance, I use them with my phone headset jack as the source. It may pick up more noise, but that may be an issue only with very long cables and in a professional situation. I never noticed any noise with my setup.

How can I connect these speakers to my tv that has an s/pdif optical connector?
Asked by: Glen
You will need to use a digital to analog converter to take the S/PDIF optical output from the TV and convert it to an analog signal. Connect the S/PDIF output from the TV to an S/PDIF on the converter. Then send the analog output from the converter to the inputs on the monitor controller. Next, connect the left output from the monitor controller to one speaker and the right output from the monitor controller to the second speaker. For the digital to analog converter, you can use a device like the Gefen GTV-DIGAUD-2-AAUD Stereo Digital-to-Analog Audio Converter (B&amp;H# GECDAAA) or FiiO TAISHAN-D03K - S/PDIF Digital to Analog Converter (B&amp;H# FID03K). The monitor controller has a 3.5mm TRS input, so you can use an RCA to 3.5mm TRS cable like the Smart-AVI 3.5mm TRS Male to Dual RCA Male Adapter Cable (B&amp;H# SMAD35MM2RC) and then use the XLR cables to connect each speaker to the monitor controller.
