Plus their cheaper.

Totally recommended!!

Maybe they sound better to you because they don't have a flat response. If they 'lie' as a speaker that might be what you want, they might colour the sound to your tastes. They're also pretty flakey when you pump up the volume. A friend of mine has these and they totally fail when compared to my RP8s.

They're half the price of the RP8s for a reason.

As for studio monitors the more you pay the better the monitors will be. This is true 99% of the time.

They have a FLAT response. The way I know it is just the way you claim RP8 have a flat response. M1 Active's are 100 Watt while RP8's have 120 Watt...maybe M1's wheren't loud enough for you. I checked a demo track at a musical store with tons of other expensive studio stuff. Alesis bring MORE DETAILED sound, even in they are colouring sound a bit, all monitors COLOUR em! Besides everybody knows RP8's are just not good for production. imo

Everyone knows that the alesism1 active's aren't great and everyone know the krk rokits aren't great either.

I know it's also a personal taste issue, but look at the reviews all over the internet, everyone thinks they are an extremely good monitor for the price. I do too.

The only thing I've heard about the KRK 8s is that some find the highs a little harsh. Thats it!

The 'eveyone knows' statement I think is not entirely true.

You totally contradict yourself. You start by saying they have a FLAT response, then you say "even if they are colouring the sound a bit".

Come on, which is it??!!

And by the way, thats bollocks about everyone knows the RP8s are not good for production. Put them next to the M1 MK2s and I bet I know what "everyone" would choose.

spawn you own a djm800 too right?


correct...and btw this whole nonsense about the krk's not being good for production...they're amazing for both dj'ing and production because they have a flat response...if your looking for club sound go buy a massive PA or some $3000 mackies

The key with RAM, just like buying DJ equipment, is that you should spend as much as you can. You can never have too much RAM. If you can possibly afford 2gb then get it. The more you have the better your memory hungry programs will run - even if the app has a minimum requirement of 512mb or 256mb.
