A quick review of the JBL LSR308 Reference Monitor. This is a great budget-friendly studio monitor and compares to the very popular Yamaha HS8 and KRK Rokit 8 monitors. The LSR308 sounds more appealing than the Yamaha HS8 but the Yamaha is more flat, which is usually preferred from a high quality reference monitor. The KRK Rokit 8 sounds kind of muddy. The instruments aren't as clear as the JBL and the Yamaha and the bass is hyped. This may be preferred for certain types of music but overall not ideal for a studio monitor.
