I know there are many JBL LSR305&8 fans on the PW forum. I noticed a great deal this morning on the 8" for $129 each at B&H (a very credible store in NYC). Free ship and no taxes. Probably the best pair of 8" studio monitors you can get for $258. I am not affiliated with this store whatsoever, only a happy steady BH customer for years. I just wanted the forum folks to be aware of this one day sale if you are in the market for studio monitors.

jarobi, good for you! I was hoping someone would take advantage this great deal. That was was my full intention of this post for any PW members to take advantage.

We all have to look out for each other ;-)

The fact that these have been "on sale" for $50 off for months now - and that they are now selling for $129 "today" - along with the fact that the 305s were (still are?) "on sale" for $99 for awhile - gives more credence to the rumor that JBL is coming out with a new monitor at NAMM in January.

Amazon has them at the same price, likely with a further discount if you talk to their 'harmony associate' and ask for a discount code.

I hope this is true just so they can also drop the subwoofer in the series down a bit. Really need that for my workstation lol. Great line products

Yes, Amazon is a great deal too, but BH free expedited US shipping and no tax truly made it the better deal.

Of course JBL has to come out with a new monitor, however, are our ears really good enough to notice what their "marketing team" comes up with ;-) Im pretty sure the 305 and 308 will meet our needs just fine for digital pianos.

As the owner of the 305's I'd like to add sub to my setup. I don't think that replacing 305's with 308's will give big improvement (if any). So discounts on JBL LSR310S are welcomed. smile

The subwoofer was $100 off yesterday as well.

But as someone else intimated in this thread - I wonder how much of a difference a subwoofer would make with a digital piano if you already had the 308s...

This guy has some measurements and comments on the 305 and 308 that are a fun read. To hit lower fq in either case he prefers adding a sub. . .

I don't think you can benefit very much from adding subwoofer to LSR 30Xs for piano sound. But certainly you will notice the difference. It is the positive step.

I played around with added Yamaha YST-SW216 to my 305s. It was too complicated to adjust them in one system: "Low Cut" filters on both, changing positions... All the beauty of JBL's sound was under unwanted pressure and imbalanced, uncontrolled behavior of that cheap and "foreign" sub. It was impossible for music listening. Sold sub (it was 5.1 home theater set). But even with those troubles I noticed positive changes for piano sound (and of course for sound in general, sub will be the great addition!). "Native" sub will make desired changes.

JBL came out with their "7 Series" monitors this year. Maybe there are some improvements from those they plan on incorporating into the LSR's next generation.

I have a set of 308's, I really like them. I have no issues with them, but they are a bit BIG. The bass is just fine for piano, its not going to replace a big sub woofer but with a sub they really shine. I like them because in addition to piano they work well with other instrument sounds. I have them on stands with isolation pads and once I got the placement right I'm very happy with them. I also have the sub but I don't use it when playing single instrument sounds like piano or guitar through it. I use the sub-woofer for mixing tracks in Logic or for listening to music and when playing bass at home. I have friend who uses the 305's, if I were just using it for acoustic piano I would have gone for them instead. The 308's with Lounge Lizard and Keyscape is awesome! I also have a set of Roland CM-220 that I use for band practice. I have also used them for playing piano on small restaurant gigs they really work well for that and the satellite speakers mount on standard mike stands.
