Overview

The LSR305, part of JBL's 3 Series studio monitors, is a 5" powered studio monitor delivering professional performance at an affordable price points. 3 Series Powered Studio Monitors are first to incorporate JBL's exciting new technology, the Image Control Waveguide. In conjunction with 3 Series high-performance transducers and system components, the Image Control Waveguide lets you hear detail and depth in recordings as you've never heard before.

The LSR305's 5" long-throw woofer and its 1" damped woven composite Neodymium tweeter are designed from the ground up to reproduce the powerful transients and micro dynamics of your mix. These drivers deliver impressive deep bass and smooth high frequency response beyond the range of human hearing.

JBL's Patented Slip Stream low frequency port design works in concert with the woofer to produce deep bass response at all playback levels. The double-flared shape of the port is precisely engineered for greater low-frequency extension and reduced turbulence.

Big Power, Big Sound
3 Series efficient Class D Amplifiers provide abundant power to deliver the output and dynamic headroom needed for the most demanding production styles

Professional Balanced Inputs
Balanced XLR and 1/4" (6 mm) TRS inputs give you the options you need to connect your 3 Series to any signal source while maintaining professional signal quality.

Selectable Input Sensitivity
The -10 dB/+4 dB sensitivity switch ensures compatibility with a broad range of signal sources, allowing you to connect the 3 Series to high output professional gear without any danger of input overload.

LF Trim and HF Trim "TRIM" switches for both the Low and High Frequencies give you excellent control over the 3 Series sound in "your" room. Use these to fine-tune the amount of bass and treble you hear to compensate for room acoustics, program material and your personal taste.

JBL Professional Reliability
Prior to becoming a production-ready design, each 3 Series model is subjected to JBL's tough 100-hour power test, in which the speaker is required to play continually at full output for 100 hours without failure. This demanding test ensures your 3 Series speakers will deliver years of reliable performance.

JBL LSR Design - Your Music Needs a Point of Reference
While most manufacturers take only a single on axis measurement of the speaker's performance, this doesn't tell how it will sound in your room. JBL's LSR Linear Spatial Reference design criteria requires seventy-two measurements yielding more than 1,200 times more data, enabling JBL to engineer a speaker that "sounds right" in any working space. With LSR design, 3 Series Studio Monitors deliver superior accuracy regardless of the size and shape of your room, so your mixes "hit their mark" when heard on any playback system.

My renewed interested with JBL speakers started when I bought two pair of small bookshelf speakers for our bookstore. At the time I thought they were very good, but they eventually *vastly* exceeded my expectations - those speakers rock! Well, for the Studio 230's I went to great lengths to find a showroom that would play them for me - this time my expectations were much more ambitious: defeat the $1500 a pair Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) CM5's by performing as well for less than 25% of the cost. Here I am to tell the world that the Studio 230's met that challenge!

I really wanted to like these monitors after all the reviews, and they do sound great. The issue is they are very unreliable. I bought a pair and one of them quit powering on after just 2 uses. After reading, I found this is a common issue, so if you have the flexibility to lose a monitor and wait for it to be fixed these might be good. If you need some reliable workhorse monitors, you need to look elsewhere.

As Beautiful Sounding as They Look!!!

By Sukihock

from Narrowsburg, NY, United States

Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

Since I already own a pair of the Studio L830s I must admit I wasn't expecting much. Boy was I shocked at the level of musicality these put out. Everything just sounds like real, natural music. Extremely organic in tone and a very sweet sounding treble and incredible midrange detail. Oh yeah and they image in ways I thought not possible at this price point.

They bring it !!

By Sully

from Minnetonka, MN, United States

Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

I was tired of compressed music , computer speakers, sound bars. I listen to too much music to suffer. We I had a great pair of JBL book shelves in college, so 30 years ago..lost in moving around. I went back to the masters of sound. A new local record store had these on sale for $199.00 .. yes for the pair. I've set them up with a Yamaha Aventage receiver which brings 110W a channel ..grateful dead live shows are brought back to life, movies are only lacking a popcorn maker. Get em!!

Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

We got these speakers to replace some excellent sounding but large 30 year old JBL L150's. We love the sound and wish we would have gotten them years ago!

Great Audio Phile Sound !

By Rick Nelson

from Washington, United States

Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

Excellent sound for the price. I have been a JBL studio monitor fan for 35 Years. These speakers are for my iMac 27 run through a DAC/Amplifier set up. High end Audio is back. Not a better speaker out there for $400 IMO. But scored these on Black Friday for $199.99 !!!! Thanks Harman !!

Speakers that punch above their weight

By Amir

from George Town Penang Malaysia

Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

I have onwed many speakers, chiefly are high end English speakers. English loudspeakers are great for musics, but when you need the punch from a movie or a concert, you definitely need JBLs. Im currently building a 7.2 channel system with all JBL studios. These speakers brings the absolute detail out of any DTS concert I have. I am hearing new details that Ive never heard before. This is an absolute recommended product

I Have Finally "Heard the Truth"

By The Doctor

from Miami, FL, United States

Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

These JBL 230's are sitting on my desk next to my laptop using JMedia player They are sitting on Isoacaustic stands. I am driving them with Parasound Zdac, Zpre, and Zamp. If I had to describe these speakers with one word I would choose "integrity". Every instrument is held in it's own acoustic space and I feel I am getting all of the information that was present in the recording space that these speakers are capable of presenting within their frequency range. I haven't added a sub yet because I wanted to hear them alone first. Listening to Ella Fitzgerald sing Georgia on My Mind backed by Nelson Riddle the horn section just leaps from the speakers at the beginning and then when Ella begins singing her voice is so delicate but so strongly enveloped by the orchestra it just seems "right". Now book shelf speakers don't have the dynamics of floorstanders but I didn't hear any type of tinny compression. What I do hear is a soundstage that extends about 3 feet outside of the speakers and a sweet spot that stays locked in even while I am moving around in my chair while I am working. The Parasound Z components are great and I am sure that driving these speakers with high quaity separates helps them sound their best. I look forward to pairing with a sub to add that dynamic range. The thing that is eating away at me now is wondering how this pairs big brothers would sound like the 290's or even a full surround system. The other thought that occurred to me while listening to these is I'll bet some of the recordings I listened to were mastered on JBL Pro speakers so of course the home speakers would likely give me that "integrity" of what the mastering engineer created. Thank you JBL!

Big surprise in small packet

By Kanwal

from Norwalk, CT, United States

Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

I was surprised to listen the quality they produce with Yamaha RX-V675.. I bought it to listen only stereo music which i love. Right now I am listening them no more than -25 db as I live in apartment but I am waiting for time to play them on little bit louder.

Verry good speakers

By JBL Studio 230

from Serbia

Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

These speakers are best price/get. I am very glad to change my JBL Control One with these speakers. KeF Q300 have a better tweeter and clear sound but price is twice than JBL Studio 230. For these price rang maybe best buy. Tannoy V1i are good too but smaller than ST 230.
