Overall: I recently upgraded from 5" M-Audio StudioPhile Monitors to these 8" JBLs. Those old ones were actually pretty nice for low-budget monitors, but I just wasn't hearing the crisp highs I needed, or feeling enough thump from the bass frequencies. These JBLs answered all of those concerns. Rich, full bass, clean, crisp highs, and everything in between. I am extremely happy with these monitors, ESPECIALLY at this price. I was lucky enough to score them from ZZOUNDS for only $199 each on sale, and was psyched about that, but they are definitely worth the regular price of $249 each IMO. JBL is a trusted brand, they sound great and look awesome. They are quite large, and fill up my desk, but the tweeter is almost perfectly at ear-level now with only Auralex Mo-Pads underneath the monitors- no stands. I mostly compose music intended for Movie Trailers. A lot of it is that EPIC style that is very common these days- heavy guitars and percussion with orchestral sounds, too. These JBLs are handling these sounds beautifully. I'm giving them 5 stars for Manufacturer Support, although I have not needed their assistance. I am assuming that a company like JBL would provide good support, but hopefully I won't need to find out. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE.

Overall: I purchased a pair, which saved me $125.00 from zZounds, of JBL LSR308 Powered Studio Monitors. I use them as monitors for studio live play, for practice, and for recording playback. I have a Taylor 416ce with expression electronics, the reproduction through these 308’s is crisp, clear and rich bass. The reproduction is better than I expected. I was considering an acoustic amplifier, I am holding off for a while because these monitors are getting the job done for what I need right now. They sound just as good, better in my opinion, as the Yamaha HS8’s for a lot less money. Can’t go wrong with these monitors. I haven't had any issues with the speakers, so I have no rating for JBL support.

Overall: The JBL LSR308 have to be the best sounding Active Monitors I have owned yet. They are a typical great sounding JBL product. The response is what a studio monitor should,be accurate. I will be matching them with the LSR3108S Sub Woofer Soon.
