The JBL LSR305P get very loud, they have decent bass, and are on special at Amazon for $90 each https://www.amazon.com/JBL-Professional-Next-Generation-Powered-305PMKII/dp/B077N2GQXC/


JBL LSR350P are $140 CDN each: https://www.amazon.ca/JBL-2-Way-Powered-Studio-Monitor/dp/B077N2GQXC

Here is a nice set of Edifiers for $249 CDN https://www.amazon.ca/Edifier-R1850DB-Bookshelf-Speakers-Bluetooth/dp/B073W1R4XQ/ There are also less expensive Edifiers that are good values for the price (check what's on Amazon and look at the reviews)

Micca PB42X are excellent for the money if you'd rather not spend as much https://www.amazon.ca/Micca-PB42X-Powered-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B00NXAEPDC/


I think you can get JBL 305 mk2 for around that.

Edit: Yup, $89 each!


These look like a perfect fit for you.


Trying to get the home-office cleaned up a little bit. On this pic we have:

  1. Dual 1257 Turntable.
  2. ART DJPREII Phono Preamplifier (behind right speaker, can't really see it)
  3. Klipsch Promedia 2.1 desktop speakers.
  4. APC 7-Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip 1440 Joules, SurgeArrest Essential (PE76)
  5. IKEA Alex

    This got the turntable off the work desk and cleaned up a bit. More cleanup is needed. But it's all there, at least.

    My next step is to buy a Roll Mx422 mixer and mix the sound in with my work computer, which has a pair of JBL 305P MK II Studio Monitors on it.

    Yes, I need to put something under the speakers. Getting to that. Baby steps.
