I just purchased these cause they were $40 dollars off each.

Did I do good and how do I hook them up to my tv or phone?
>>
These aren't good if you are just going to listen to music from your phone, you would have buy an amp. And they are worse if you are going to use them to watch movies and shit.
>>
>>51604589
I want to play music and listen to the news and stuff.
I'll buy a DAC when I can find a good one for cheap, but will a simple TRS to 3.5mm be enough for now?
>>
>>51604589
They look to be powered speakers, no amp needed.
>>
>>51604414
Damn I read that as $40 each at first.
>>
>>51604414
I make music and I have jbl 2328p monitors

the new equivalent are the lsr 308s

they are good flat frequency but I don't like how mastered tracks sound on them sometimes

the flaws really show on badly mixed tracks
>>
>>51604653
yes it will be enough but you might hear a static or infinite not so loud buzz until you get balanced cables
>>
>>51604414
you just bought some studio monitors. they are not necessarily meant to sound "good" but instead are supposed to sound "accurate" so that when recording and mixing music you can hear accurately what is happening.

I use them for making music and I think they would work as hifi speakers for recreational listening though. To plug them into your setup you will need to get a cable that has an XLR or 1/4 inch plug on one end, and the type of plug you're outputting from on the other. checkout monoprice for those.

That's the same thing.
>>
>>51604780

Isn't that the same thing? The whole purpose of speakers is to accurately reproduce a recording. The closer to the source a speaker can reproduce, the better
>>
>>51604808
no what he means is they have a flat frequency response

consumer speakers are always exaggerated in the bass and shit and they don't translate well to other systems
>>
>>51604827
Some people ting niggerbass sounds good

>>51604780
Are these good?
http://www.amazon.ca/Hosa-CMP159-Stereo-Breakout-10-Feet/dp/B005HGM1D6
>>
>>51604833
Yeah and consumer systems generally sound like shit because they don't have flat response.
>>
>>51604808
>>51604827
not necessarily, most "hi fi" speakers are designed to have a frequency response that is more flattering to the ear, whereas "accurate" speakers have a flat frequency response. you will notice more midrange, less low end, and maybe harsher high end response in these compared to "hi fi" speakers.
>>
>>51604853
I used Shure se535 and m50x, is the sound comparable?
>>
>>51604653
>TRS to 3.5mm

Uhhh, one of those is a type of connector and the other is a measurement size for said connector...

Those seem pretty expensive. Just get some cheap chink cable.
>>
>>51604874
TRS can be quarter inch.

>>51604874
dual 1/4" to 3.5mm

>>51604873
Fairly comparable. Less low end, more midrange.

>>51604844
Hosa cables are great, they are all I buy for aux cables, quality is good and they last a long time.

this would be optimal

the one you posted is good, these work as well. the monitor has connections for both types. you might notice less buzz in this one.

>designed to have a frequency response that is more flattering to the ear

I've never understood this.
People always go on about the equal loudness contour and adjusting your EQ to complement it, but that implies some weird assumption that a microphone is doing the reverse when recording.

If a microphone perfectly captures a sound and then a speaker with perfectly flat FR plays it back, it should sound exactly like the real thing.

There's a lot of "ifs" and "perfectly" with that statement that can't currently be achieved, but we should be aiming for ACCURATE across the whole recording/playback process.
>>
>>51604884
>TRS can be quarter inch.

That's what I'm saying, "TRS to 3.5mm" is a useless statement.

It could be;
3.5mm TRS to 3.5mm TRS
6.35mm TRS to 3.5mm TRRS
2.5mm TRS to 3.5mm TS

or any other number of combinations.
>>

How do I figure out which speaker is left and which is right?
Other than playing a stereo track.

Nah senpai

I just bought Klipsch R-15Ms for 125 at best buy.
Did some research and it seems like those were the best I could get for the price.
Is there a better option? I can return them within 14 days if there is something better for the price.
>>
>>51605069
it doesn't matter

you plug the cord into the amp/interface into l/r channel and it plays that channel
>>
>>51605069
Play a stereo track.

>>51605072
It doesn't matter.
>>
>>51604984
I don't think people should touch their stereo EQ's ever. I am just saying that speakers are designed with that frequency response in mind usually.
Personally I agree with you, accuracy is the ultimate goal, but some people may prefer heavy bass all the time etc. It's pretty subjective so every preference on the part of the listener is valid to me.

>>51605072
Why? This argument makes no sense.
>>
>>51605189
imo the only reason you should touch on the monitors the -3 db -0db - +3 db switches on the back of the monitors or fuck with an eq is after you have gotten used to how your monitors sound in your room acoustics
>>
>>51604984
Also, another thought. Neutral frequency response may not be as pleasurable for a listener at high volumes when compared to something that is designed to compensate for our natural response to frequencies in the midrange and high end. Could be more fatiguing and that might be a reason to design things that way.
>>
>>51605076
>R-15Ms
Fluance is what i was recommended, Klipsch has shitty highs from what everyone told me
>>
>>51604947
Where can I find this shit in Canada?
Bonus if I can just walk to a store in Toronto.
>>
>>51605246
Neutral frequency response compensates takes into account the difference when you perceive frequencies.
>>
>>51605246
lots of people recommend you get a spl meter and set your levels around 80db or if you don't want to get one set until you can have a conversation without having to raising your voice to be louder than the music
>>
>>51605267
any music or recording store will have that shit: Long and McQuade, Henry's… heck I've even seen some at Bestbuy.

Probably cheaper online though.
>>
>>51605356
Yeah Long and McQuade is asking for $40 but I can't find them online for much cheaper
>>
>>51605459
$11 on Amazon my guy

I gave him the benefit of the doubt and assumed he meant DAC

I want those speakers so badly, OP. I'm about to get a full-time job and those are the first things I'm going to splurge on when I get settled in.
>>
>>51604414
LSR305 is great. At first I read your post as you got them for just $40 each, which would have been a stupidly good deal.
>>
>>51604414
Can confirm that the 305s are great. The lights indicating they're on look very slick
