Ahhhh the sweet sounds....

Comments about JBL LSR305 5" Two-Way Powered Studio Monitor:

These things work great. A fairly flat response across the spectrum as well as the means to tailor the individual sound of the speaker makes these a great purchase!

won't be disappointed

By budget audiophile

Comments about JBL LSR305 5" Two-Way Powered Studio Monitor:

I'm a budget audiophile who listens to a lot of electronic production, and dabble in mixing music for fun. Wanted to upgrade from my Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 without breaking the bank, but saw some Yamaha HS8 for a killer deal so I was torn. I ultimately went with the JBLs because of a few factors (mainly price), but I do not regret this purchase at all.
Sound quality is excellent. Sound separation is excellent. Stereo imaging is crazy good due to the Image Control Wave Guide.
Bottom line: for the price, these might be the best buys

        Comments about JBL LSR305 5" Two-Way Powered Studio Monitor:

        None of the harshness or middle-forward nature of their competitors, these provide a neutral sound for mixing -- maybe not as exciting, but definitely more accurate overall. Positioning is important given the rear port. Jut clear transparent staging for your mix that makes it easier to position sounds and hear subtleties of reverb, compression etc

          Comments about JBL LSR305 5" Two-Way Powered Studio Monitor:

          I'm coming from Prodipe Ribbon 8s and must say these are a great speaker. You can hear all of the ambience of recordings and never heard before things. Listening to classical music is a revelation especially with all of the breathing of the orchestral members being caught. These speakers also have a very deep and controlled bass response for such small monitors. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.

          Update: Since adding the sub that comes paired with the speakers the sound has gotten even more incredible. Now the speakers can focus on just mid and highs and they are even more detailed then before. These guys really designed a great product.

          Comments about JBL LSR305 5" Two-Way Powered Studio Monitor:

          You know how they say that a speaker can make tons of difference? yeah I haven't heard that either. Well this one did. I didn't realize how horrible all the other equipment I have is until I hooked those up. Even without sophisticated DAC or sound card YOU CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE!
          Pros:
          - the sound comes from everywhere it seems
          - beautiful looking
          - bass is not overwhelming but its definitely there and it's not about strong vibrations but ones that "touch your soul" - sorry, I don't know how describe this other then that
          - more I listen to them the more it is orgasmic - I am no audiophile but those just make me want to listen to music all the time when I am home.
          Cons:
          - definitely not for amateurs when comes to hooking up - I had to work with guys at a music store to explain to me what's the best way to do so
          - each one is "self powered" (yeah I didn't really know what that means when I bought them too), problem is I read that you should not keep them on. Each one has to be turned off separately and switch is in the back - minor inconvenience.

          OVERALL? LOVE THIS!

            Using the speaker (pair) as additional sound source for a Johannus Opus 270 digital organ. Great organ and the external JBL's re-enforce the sound.
