John57, thanks for weighing-in... finally something of taste and value that I may be able to afford! Going over to look right now. My current living arrangements won't accommodate speakers. These JBL Active Monitors could turn out to be quite the bridge for me to cross.

 

Hopefully, I can place them near to me on the desk for discreet listening. Let's:biggrin: investigate! Also, long time reader of Gearslutz...

I hope my comments are useful. The JBL LSR305 is continuing to get good reviews. One reviewer just stated that the JBL has much better sound quality than the Genelec 8030B which costs $800 each. Only the Neumann KH 310 8 incher three way that can play louder match the JBL but it is at $2,250 each. To get better sound quality at 1/5 of the cost and more is quite a game changer in my opinion. I still have my Emotiva Airmotiv6 which is still a good speaker in its own right. I will talk about tubes next time I write.

Excellent! We all love great value around here...

Harman can really put out great product when it focuses its engineering talent. Their brand management in the last decade has been a mystery though. Look at how they have let AKG and Infinity languish...... Both storied audio brands.

I understand what you are saying. Many companies are using workers as commodities for a specific project and do not always hang on to the same engineers. In Harman's case it would make sense if they keep the engineers team and rotate them among the various companies they own. If you check the website for the JBL M2 monitors, it is quite obvious that Harman spends quite a bit of resources to develop the M2 monitors (mostly from scratch) with five patents being used on the woofer design alone and with software tuning programs available. With my JBL LSR305 and the LSR308, much of the development work for these low-cost monitors was most likely done using the M2 reference monitors, which helps to keep the costs low. Harman most likely uses the same team for the low-cost LSR models without having to develop them from scratch. There is a bit of movement on the AKG side with some new models as well.

It is with software companies that I have issues with. Gigastudio which was one of the biggest investments I had for software was brought out by Tascam only to be dropped by them. Calkwalk another fine audio MIDI sequencer program I owned was brought out by Roland and then Gibson. Giving Gibson track record I do not see any future development of Cakewalk. One of the oldest MIDI hardware synthesizer keyboard  support program still being developed  is MIDI Quest by  Sound Quest first released  in 1989 for AMIGA, and the ATARI ST which I have owned at the time was better than anything I saw on the PC side. Check it out if you need a good librarian program for your hardware synthesizer.

So, how will we celebrate our 5,000th Post? Despite being in different time zones, perhaps we could all share listening to the same track, or have the same snack, drink or something...

:popcorn: 

 

In this thread, "Food for thought" takes on a whole new meaning.

Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying their amps!
