    Thanks, but the URL for this must have been changed, the link is not working. For those who don't already have this, a link to JBL Home Audio in Japan:

    http://www.harman-japan.co.jp/produc...ome/index.html

    Notice in the column on the left the links for the 435Be and the UT-045Be, among a few others of possible interest... The 435 and 045 included here:

    http://www.harman-japan.co.jp/produc...ome/435be.html

    http://www.harman-japan.co.jp/produc...e/ut045be.html

    There are many things of interest on the main page, below is one of lesser significance but perhaps a little controversial, JBL speaker cable:

    http://www.harman-japan.co.jp/produc...00_jsc500.html

    I couldn't find these on the JBL Pro USA website. For those missing the blue baffle JBL Studio Monitors, check this out:

    http://www.harman-japan.co.jp/product/jblhome/4348.html

    Finally, the Harman International Japan web page has a few surprises of it's own:

    http://www.harman-japan.co.jp/

    Overall, I say... Wow! ... sigh

    I find it interesting that some of those monitors are not available in the US.

    4428 is $2012.00 usd each

    4348 is a bit over $6000.00 ea.

    That LS Series was at CES but not playing. GT doesn't really know why they aren't available here. Not his dept.

    I believe the designer has every right to dictate how the drivers are used if he owns them. And if I own one I have the same right. As do you for the ones that belong to you.

    What is your opinion of off label drug use? Not quite the same thing but not entirely different either. I'm not saying it's not a good thing to know what a driver was designed for but sometimes you get serendipity. It's my understanding that the D130 was designed as a home HiFi speaker. I believe that you would say that isn't even it's best use.

    I'm just suggesting that breaking a rule or two isn't always bad. It's even better if you have a clue what you are about when you do it. I'm not trying to say that anyone can grab a handful of high quality drivers build a box, do whatever for frequency division/ distribution and have a sweet sounding system. It's not so but that doesn't make it illegal to try something that the designer never thought of or didn't have in mind.

    Yep, from what I've read I thought the classic blue-baffled monitors were a thing of the past. Great to see them of course. A great line up of products, including the speaker stands, I regret that the US market doesn't warrant all of them being sold here, no judgement on JBL.

    How about the Harman International page, where you can find Halcro, SME, AKG, and two high-end cable companies in the list with JBL, Mark Levinson, and Revel. Does Harman own all of these, or is just the importer for Japan?

    Use "Advanced Search" to find the post by Don McRitchie detailing the Harman Japan operation....

    Search I did, the result is straightforward and logical, makes sense. For those still learning like myself, a must read here:

    http://www.audioheritage.org/vbullet...t=harman+japan

    I really wonder how some of that fine looking equipment on the JBL Japan website is made... more like crafted, in China? Nice work, scary good, damn nice!

    Thanks for the suggestion.
