Thought these were worth a shout with the stands included, looking around the single speakers work out around £100+ each (After del added) So considering the stands are included it's a nice little saving.

I've added the info on the stands under the speaker specs below, there's also a link here. Standard del is free

JBL LSR Design

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.

Image Control Waveguide

The Image Control Waveguide was developed for JBL?s new flagship M2 Master Reference Monitor and with the introduction of the JBL 3 Series, is now included for the first time in an affordable, compact reference monitor. The patent-pending design of the Image Control Waveguide precisely controls the sound emanating from the speaker in the vertical and horizontal planes ensuring the presentation at the listening position is neutral and accurate.

If you just want the speakers, GAK & Andertons both have them on at £185.34 for the pair delivered, but this is a good price including the stands
I have the speakers and can highly recommend them. I use them on my desk with foam pads though (also one of the bundle deals that can be found), so cant comment on the stands. Speakers alone can be found for sub £100. A new version just introduced, so might be some good run out deals soon.
Well worth it!

Thought so too, a pair of stands for the extra £10 is pretty decent

Funnily enough never thought to check there! I just assumed that they were one of the places charging £100+ the OP referred to. And optional 6-year warranty for £4.63?! That's oustanding.
Bought mine from gear4music about a month back, they are amazing.

Bought the Mackie MR524 & the JBL 305's and even though the Mackie's look much nicer the JBL's just sound better.

I also got the focusrite scarlett 2i2 and the Mackie Onyx Artist 1-2 ended up keeping the Mackie as the black is a little less intrusive than the red.

I will note though that there is a light hum from the speakers, I have disconnected all input sources and isolated the power and its still there, apparently it is common and is due to the amp. but is not audible
when playing music.

Please check time stamps. I had a quick look, then thought as I never saw it I could simply ask the person making the statement not realising that it would be an issue.

Strange, no hum from mine, but I do get a very low level hiss - can only hear it when putting ear right up to the speaker. Hum sounds like earthing but if you have tried disconnecting/moving everything then sounds like you'll have to live with it...

I got the white ones in preference to the black. Think they look better on the desk. They are cheaper in some places.

I ended up getting the matching sub (LSR310S) to go with them also - not really needed but certainly adds some low and accurate bass! Costs more than the actual speakers, so definitely not a necessity!
Could my digital output only TV connect to these? or aren't they type of speakers I should be using with a TV.

maybe I should of said hiss then instead of hum.

I did consider the whites but decided against it in the end as when I got as white PC case I ended up regretting after a few months.
Would like the SUB but considering this is in my office and the other side of the wall that all this stuff is "against" is my neighbours kids room and I doubt they would be impressed with the consistent thumping. How did you connect the Sub?

The speakers have built in amps but no DAC, so you'd need a DAC if your tv has no line level output (which would be a bit unusual?).

From source into the sub (unbalanced), then balanced XLR to each speaker.
It's a bit big, but adds a lot more than I expected. Was unsure whether I would keep it when buying, but certainly will do having heard it.

Unfortunately only 'Digital Audio Out (Optical)'.

I guess I'll just wait on for an amp/speaker bundle.

Thanks
Hiss and hums could well be ground loop.

I've mistakenly blamed bits of kit for noises in the past and they were perfectly innocent
Thanks, not for the speakers but for the stands!
Been looking for a cheapish pair of stands for ages.
Great spot OP, the monitors are well reviewed from SoundonSound so a great price with the stands.

No lol have a look at the Yamaha ysp sound projectors
Or the sky sound box for around the same money
The reviews are good

Just pulled the trigger on this as I was looking for some monitors, and I can set these up to use them with my Sonos Connect as a hifi. Thanks for the spot!
Edited by: "danothebaldyheid" 14th Feb
I have a pair of these. I love them, but really need a sub for that full extension of bass
How much quality would I lose by just connecting a phono to jack adapter, to connect my turntable to these, if that makes sense?
How do these compare to my current Diamond 9.1s?

You can't connect a turntable to them directly - you need a phono amp inbetween.

I think they would do the job, they go pretty loud. But they are designed as near field studio monitors, not PA speakers. And if you want a thumping bass you'll probably want the sub. Or maybe go for the larger 308s? These are on offer too - £336 at gear4music - great price!

Spent a long time researching bookshelf powered monitors a couple of weeks back due to seeing the 305s for sale. The consensus was that these aren't the best looking but sound wise they simply cannot be beaten. Even by powered speakers much more expensive.
Isn't this the standard price? How much are stands normally?

edit: £50 gear4music.com/Rec…6PM . not bad.
