This is an amazing deal.

For comparison I got the 308P a few years ago for ~$240 (after tax) each.

Not sure if I should sell or keep my Edifier 1700 after getting these. Any ideas? PC 4.0 surround sound setup?
You might get annoyed by the prominent hiss sound (depending on how close you are to them). So you might want to keep the Edifier 1700 around just in case you return the 305P.

I've gotten use to the hiss sound, so it's not a problem for me anymore. I have my 308P directly on my desk

Note: I reported my own thread as a repost when I discovered the other active thread.

As has been mentioned before, these are a well reviewed speaker that usually sells for one speaker at this price. Amazon.com lists them at US$310/pair - Amazon US Price

These compact, professional quality, powered studio monitors feature an image control waveguide for incredible detail and imaging, and the broad sweet spot that means you get optimal sound even off-axis. The MkII series now features updated high-frequency (HF) and low-frequency (LF) transducers, which respectively provide optimized damping for superior transient response and greater linearity that allows impressively deep bass with lower harmonic distortion. Upgrades also include new boundary equalization (EQ), which restores neutral LF response when speakers are placed on the work surface and adjacent walls.

Even hotter this time around if you're an Air Miles collector as airmilesshops.ca is doing 10X miles (100 AM with this purchase).

Would JBL honor a warranty if these break after 30 days? I see amazon has a 30 day return policy on these but can't find any warranty information.

It doesn't look like Amazon.ca is included in the 10x miles.

You shouldn't have any warranty issues with JBL when purchasing these from Amazon (Ship & Sold by Amazon).

And even $240 each for the 308P is a good deal!

I think you're right. Amazon is just 1mile for $20, which is like 10 cents for this purchase

It's literally the first vendor listed on the 10X sitewide promo page: https://www.airmilesshops.ca/en/seasona ... =learnmore you will get 100AM = $10.53 in AM cash value. Also your valuation of AM is off, at the base rate you'd get 10AM which would be worth $1.

@GateronYellow what PC AMP are you using there? How does it work with these? Looking for something super loud (hopefully Channel D, 2-channel).
Thanks in advance!

Hmm, I hope so, but does that mean the stores with 10x bonus offers will get 10x + 10x airmiles?
