Anyone have experience with KRK or these monitors, and if so any thoughts, pros / cons?

Somebody, please jump in before I reach maximum level.

I don't know how long I can hold out :nervous:

All I need now is one of you cunts to post something about sound being mono in clubs.

Obviously they are in a PAIR. Jesus in' christ... no offense, but if you don't have any experience with these monitors or KRK don't bother please.

Pop quiz:

Which did you miss by a wider margin?

A: The joke?
B: The fact that you asked the one and only question that tops "How do I make a Supersaw" for the number of times it's appeared here.
C: The search function?

Hint...all three.

Yours truly,
Jesus F. Christ ;)

They are e. And yes, i've owned a pair.

The Rokit brand is aimed at DJs, not studios. They have a higher studio brand which are decent but you're looking at significantly more money.

As DJ monitors, the Rokits are fine. As studio monitors, nope. I own a pair, they don't even come close to the Dynaudio pair that I also own.

I have them for quite some years now, tested some in the same price range and they sounded best to me. I don't know what came out since then.

Here's the SOS review: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/nov...cles/krkrp6.htm

Best bet is still to go in a shop and ask a demo with a cd of some of your favorite music.

They don't aim at dj's but to the producer on a budget.
On another point, imo it's pointless to spend 1k on monitors without room treatment.

It's not pointless and the Yamahas fit around that price but sound much better.

i love my KRK RP6! i have the limited edition red ones. got them used back in september. they arent the most critical monitors but they are very invovling and musical and upon getting used to them you'll find they are quite accurate speakers as well. (note: i have moderate "ghetto" treatment done to my room.)

i use those and AKG K240s for reference and what i love about the combo is that they translate about 95% to each other.

honestly monitoring is more of of a YMMV type of thing. some people like certain sound signatures over others so if you like the RP6, get them...i personally love them over most of the other monitoring selections in their price range.

happy hunting :)

Well, they are cheap for a reason. I don't see why people try to give a seemingly objective opinion on a brand of monitors and draw their experiences from other monitors that are marketed for other purposes at a different price range.

Rokits are good for DJing and listening to music, and the problem with them is that your mixes will sound good through those speakers too easily when with most others they will sound terrible. They won't give you that accurate flat imaging for more serious producers and you shouldn't expect to for about 150-200$ per speaker.

I 've always had this opinion that as longs you know your monitor , you can get decent results. Although the cheapest monitors I've everusedwere the Yamaha hs80.

I could not buy anything called rockit unless herbyhanhad his hand in it.
