JBL LSR305 Professional Studio Monitor speakers (pair) from $262 shipped (Reg. $300), more

Amazon has the JBL LSR305 Professional Studio Monitors (pair) for $267.25 shipped. They are temporarily out of stock but you can still lock-in the discounted price. Otherwise, third party seller AudioWatt (96% positive from over 5,000) has them for $262 shipped. Either way we are talking about the best price around, as these speakers still fetch as much as $150 a side from most retailers.

They have a 4.9/5 star rating from nearly 30 Amazon customers and feature:

  • Increased HF Detail – You’ll experience greater depth and ambience in recordings. 
  • Broad Sweet Spot -3-Series speakers deliver neutral sound across an unusually large working space regardless of room acoustics.
  • 3 Series efficient Class D Amplifiers provide abundant power to deliver the output and dynamic headroom needed for the most demanding production styles

If you would prefer something more modern with Bluetooth streaming, Adorama has the PreSonus Ceres C4.5BT Two-Way 4.5″ Powered Studio Monitor Speakers for $139.99 shipped right now. That’s within $10 of the lowest we have ever seen. However, if you don’t mind the hassles of a mail-in-rebate (details on page), you can drop these suckers down to $114.99 shipped, which is the lowest price we have ever seen.
