All told, the JBL Series 3 LSR305 is an excellent option for both home and pro studios in a category where it's easy to spend twice as much money or more.

New Topping D50s/A50s stack
se. I like that the USB actually works as intended and there is no noise from the pc on my JBL LSR305 if I game which is impressive(little wins).
Phenominal Speakers - Best I've owned so far
I thought BOSE sounded fine and never really tried anything else (figured that I wasn't missing out all that much) and any speaker considered 'good' would cost $2000+ and required a larger cabinet to fill a room. I always wanted to try a set of studio monitors for listening to music and decided that...

The hype is justified but make sure to use a truly balanced preamp
Jumped on the MKIIs Thanksgiving sale ($90 each) for desktop use with my PC as source.

JBL LSR305 Powered Studio Monitor
JBL evidently chose the LF trim’s corner frequency wisely. The 305’s excellent transient response and the copious high-frequency detail it produced made drums pop, without sounding hyped.

Best Studio Monitors for the $
I should preface by saying these are my first pair of studio monitors for my own personal use, but I have used the LSR305's in a different environment before. That being said, I chose these over the competing monitors in this price range (Rokit, Yamaha, Mackie) because of their incredible low end re...

JBL LSR305 vs Yamaha HS5 | Ultimate Buyers Guide
This model is far cheaper than the Yamaha HS5 despite being a close competitor in terms of features. After considering all of these, if I had a gun to my head and in a bind to pick a winner, I’d opt for the JBL LSR305. It may not be as technically competent as the Yamaha HS5, but the price difference between the two is substantial and could make it a better investment

A Perfect Two-Way Speaker
At normal listening levels -- below pain/OSHA hearing damage threshold -- this speaker is fantastic. On-axis performance measured from six feet away in a room with a hard floor followed a Harman target small room curve. Individual near field measurements of the tweeter and woofer were flat along the...
