Hello Friends,
Every holiday season, we approach our partners and ask if they’d like to do anything special for the Massdrop community. Usually this means more drops for more desirable products at lower prices.
This year, we had a great conversation with our long standing partners at Harman (JBL, AKG, etc) with some exciting results. Through their generosity in the form of a reduced cost, we are able to a new drop on the Massdrop x JBL LSR30X of $179.99 shipped to your door in the continental united states.
The only downside is that we can only offer this on existing units. Future units will have to be sold at the original drop price of $279.99. So once these sell out, the new units go back to $279.99 because JBL can’t give us this lower cost into perpetuity.
Understanding this negatively impacts those who have purchased most recently, Massdrop is refunding the $100 difference to all those who have purchased the LSR30X on or after November 1st 2017. If you purchased the LSR 30X on or after November 1 (in the last 47 days), you’ll receive a $100 partial refund in the days ahead.
Thanks for your interest in this product, and thanks to our partners at Harman for making this holiday surprise possible!

Is there a limit on how many unit is left? I want to buy another pair but just not at the moment.
Does the latest drop come with the cable?
What kind of cables do theses work with? Can I use a quarter inch rca? Does mass drop sell the appropriate cables?

Often shipped Separately. Should arrive soon.

In the past they have been backed ordered and it took a bit longer to Receive.

When are we going to get a drop for the Mass Drop x JBL LSR310x? I need a matching Sub to round out this setup!

Surprising considering there are over 800 requests for the sub to drop. Even if only 25% of that ponied up, MD would clear 200 units. I bet that's more of those subs than JBL sells in 6 months.

Who knows the reason. I'm sure Massdrop would be happy to start a drop if it where solely up to them.

Maybe eventually, fingers crossed. ;)
Should I use the provided TRS -> 2 TS cable? I'm going to use the speakers with a Komplete Audio 6 interface, which has a 1/4" headphone output, but also a main output which is a couple of 1/4" balanced outputs.
Would I benefit using the main outputs, and if so, which set of cables should I buy? 2 sets of TRS-to-TRS vs TRS-to-XLR vs TS-toTS? I'm trying to get my head around the differences...

If you already have balanced outputs (meaning 3 wires on the cable per signal), you want to stay balanced. I agree with the mrbinary suggestion of 1/4" TRS to XLR (2 of those). You could also go 1/4" TRS to 1/4" TRS. In professional mixing circles, the TRS plug is a quick plug-in method and XLR is more something you will leave permanently plugged in, but ultimately either method works fine as long as all 3 wires have a good connection. XLR is less prone to slipping out.

There is an argument for short cable runs that going unbalanced lets you avoid a pair of op-amps that sum the balanced live wires (flipping polarity on one), which is why you'll see very pricey high-end home gear sometimes using unbalanced. So, balanced isn't always better than unbalanced if you have that choice. However, you can't bypass the op-amps these JBL speakers are using internally, so you might as well stay balanced.

Thank you both, I'll go for this type of cable then
Listening to HD 6XX and the LSR 30X at the same time. The sound from the monitor can easily come through the headphone since it is open back. It has the clarity of the headphone and the strong bass from the monitors. The monitors also help widen the sound stage a lot. Very interesting experience but not perfect for every type of music.

Damn..that's a pretty long desk (2x than mine)
Mixer with a bluetooth receiver seems like a neat idea. Thanks for your input!

Having a mixer is awesome. You can use your audio equipment with so many different sources such as console, phone, laptop without ever having to replug anything. also the slider volume control is a much better Interface to control volume than a knob.
Can these be used a desktop computer setup? how far do the speakers need to be? Thank you for answering.

Thank you. I am knowledgeable in audio stuff, but not in monitors and computer speakers.

They work for a desktop setup and thats how I am personally using them but ideal listing distance for these speakers is about 5-6 feet away from your ear holes.
Will we be notified when these are shipped?

I ordered on Sunday. MD shows estimated shipping on Feb 14th in my order but I haven't received any notification or updated order status. Who knows, I guess.
Thirdeye1
Yes they will send an email once it shipped.
