The new JBL 4305P Studio Monitor Powered Bookshelf Loudspeaker System features High-resolution Streaming Audio and Prosumer Connectivity.

As a completely self-contained active loudspeaker system, the JBL 4305P has 300Wrms total system power built-in, a 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution DAC, and six inputs that can be used with a wide variety of digital and analogue audio sources. Additional features include a selectable bass contour control to compensate for acoustic differences in loudspeaker placement and positioning and a signal-sensing line-level subwoofer output for connection to an external powered subwoofer.

The enclosure of the JBL 4305P is constructed from 3⁄4-inch MDF with internal bracing and features a real wood veneer finish in a choice of natural Walnut with a blue grille or Black Walnut with a black grille.


The integrated streaming engine provides both wired and wireless network audio capabilities via Ethernet, Google Chromecast Built-in, Apple AirPlay 2, and Bluetooth audio. A 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution DAC is included. In addition to premium wireless audio, the 4305P provides a number of connections for physical sources including asynchronous USB and optical digital inputs, and a 3.5mm analogue input. The JBL 4305P includes an analogue input with combination XLR / 1⁄4-inch TRS phono connectors and a selectable input sensitivity switch for use with balanced or unbalanced signals. The inclusion of this “prosumer-grade” input provides the option for balanced XLR and 1⁄4-inch TRS (tip/ring/sleeve) or unbalanced TS (tip/sleeve) connections for use in home studio applications for music, video, and podcast creation.

The JBL 4305P Studio Monitor system consists of a primary and secondary loudspeaker with selectable L/R assignment capability to suit your personal placement preference. The primary loudspeaker includes front panel controls for volume, mute, input selection, and Bluetooth pairing, plus all physical inputs on its rear panel. In addition to the front panel controls, the 4305P includes a Bluetooth handheld remote control and can be controlled as part of a Google Home or Apple Airplay ecosystem. When operating with a wireless connection between primary and secondary, the 4305P delivers audio resolution up to 96kHz. When tethered with the included 2m Digital Link cable, audio resolution can be extended to 192kHz.


The JBL 4305P can render MQA audio files and is certified Roon Ready. As with the larger models in the Studio Monitor range, the 4305P utilizes patented JBL transducer technologies. A 2410H-2 1-inch compression driver is mated to a High-Definition Imaging horn. A 5.25-inch cast frame, fibre-composite cone woofer operates in a bass-reflex configuration with dual front-firing tuned ports. Each of the transducers is powered by an internal Class D amplifier delivering 25W to each compression driver and 125W to each woofer for a total system power of 300Wrms.


JBL is including a 90-day trial of high-resolution streaming audio service Qobuz along with a curated playlist of songs that highlight the amazing audio available.
