I really like these but the original 305 are currently $280 on Amazon with prime shipping. Is the 3 db difference really worth the $40?
I'd like to think it is but I guess it's only for the perfectionist. I would rather wanna have a matched pairs than not and the 40$ is just not the matching but the cabinet as well, have a look at close up pictures of the standard one from the back and you'll notice no seams on the glossy ones. To be honest it's a better cabinet finish that tends to provide more rigidity and less cabinet resonance and frankly for $40 you'll spend it quickly and the effect will be lesss lasting than a great sounding speakers giving you ear orgasims for years to come, so your choice.
I wasn't too convinced but since the price dropped I'm definitely going to get these.
