Over the years, I've worked on monitors of varying levels of accuracy and price: Event 20/20bas, TR6 and TR8, Genelec 1030A, Yamaha NS-10's of course, and a dozen others. I had avoided KRK's because the early examples sounded a lot like NS-10's: stuffy, midrange-focused, but without the unnatural brightness. They were known as a Rock monitor, geared towards mixing guitars. Who needs another pair of 10's?
There is no "accurate" monitor really, but over time you get to know their quirks well enough to put effective mixes together. I guess those early KRKs needed some getting used to, but they certainly had their fans among respected producers and engineers. After enough of my colleagues raved about the latest crop of powered monitors, I started paying attention.
I spent an hour or so A/B'ing these against KRK Rockit 5, Rockit 8, VXT 4's and 8's, Adam A7X, Yamaha HS50M (a NS-10 reboot), and some awful M-Audio monstrosity. I really expected to end up buying the VXT 8's; they were pleasant, but a little too pleasant, almost like a Genelec or Dynaudio. The Rockit 8's are liars, lacking clarity in the lower midrange and glossing over everything with fancy bass. The Rockit 5 was surprisingly good: nice clarity and separation. But I kept coming back to the Rockit 6 for its solid midrange, restrained low end and overall dynamic properties.
They are what I consider a "fast" monitor, meaning they react quickly to electrical impulses, and get the air moving in turn. The result is a crisp dynamic clarity - when you hear people talk about "punchy" monitors, this is what they mean.Read more ›
Most people will be happy with just the rokit6's, but being that they are small speakers the lower frequencies do suffer a little; few people will notice a difference without the subwoofer on most songs, which is impressive. They sound clear and are hard to beat for anywhere near the money. If you are looking for a song for comparison of with/without subwoofer I recommend the Carlos Santana song "Maria Maria".
To determine which size Rokit you should use based on the size of the room I recommend calculating the square footage of floor space then using 40% of that as the recommended power for each stereo speaker. So a ten by ten foot room would be one hundred square feet and would do well with two speakers each a minimum of 40W RMS per speaker.
Rokit5 is 45W per speaker and a pair should be good for up to 112 square foot room.
Rokit6 is 68W per speaker and a pair should be good for up to 170 square foot room.
Rokit8 is 90W per speaker and a pair should be good for up to 225 square foot room.
To wire from the computer to the Rokit without a subwoofer you will need a mini stereo plug to dual RCA adaptor and two RCA cables; if you want to add in a subwoofer like I did, then it gets complicated. If you get a subwoofer that accepts ¼ inch plugs (like guitars use) it will be much easier to hook up the subwoofer to the Rokit speakers by using standard ¼ inch mono plugs to each from the subwoofer.Read more ›
I have noticed that it is very easy for me to notice now when a song has a mix that sounds like a B class mix and when a song has a mix that sounds like an A class mix. In other words, they tell you the truth and nothing else.
In short, when it sounds good on these monitors, it will sound good everywhere. You might be upset by the fact that they dont magically make your music sound good, but once you start working on your songs and get that sound that makes you go WOW, you know it will sound good on other systems as well.
They are not the best monitors out there but since I have started working on them, I have learnt to trust what they are telling me. I would recommend these for anyone with a limited budget. If you have a bigger budget I would go for the KRK VXT8's instead. I have spent many hours working on the originals, the V8's, and they are brilliant.
Just remember you will need a sub woofer to give you accurate monitoring in the low end.
Hope this helps
