    JBL 4311B Comparable Today

    Hi,

    I own a pair of JBL 4311B and have 2 questions. First, does anyone remember the list price of these when they were new? Even a ballpark number? I just don't remember. Second, what would be considered a comparable product in today’s market? Something that is great for rock music with similar qualities to the monitors I own.

    Thanks in advance!
    -Bill

    Well for the same $350 you could have owned these....

    You would be hard pressed to find anything in todays market that would match these vintage JBL's for that price.... although you have a looksy here.... http://www.audioadvisor.com/products.asp?dept=58

    Why not own a piece of JBL history if you are looking for another pair....

    Personally, I'd redirect and buy Item RERS3 for $597.5, as it looks like she also comes with a free pair of Rega loudspeakers

    oops, I thought her name was Rega

    Whatever, both of them look great in a living room

    Thanks for the great feedback. I do own a pair of the classic JBL 4311B's and love them. But I would like to buy some "new" stereo speakers that are of similar quality and characteristics as these JBL's with price not being an issue. Any thoughts on a great sound and nice looking pair that fits that bill? Thanks again!

    If cost is no object, then some very cool stuff can be imported from Japan.
