First Studio Monitors

24.09.2016
As is usually the case for first time buyers, you want to insure you are getting what you pay for and don't suffer from buyers remorse. I bought the KRK Rokit 5 as a bundle after looking around a lot for first timer's professional studio monitors, the bundle included 2 Studio Monitors, 2 pads to reduce vibration, 2 UK power cables. The box was big, the speakers weighed quite a bit (having not really experienced high quality speakers before), they look glorious and most importantly they sound amazing. The design is great and the yellow and black color scheme works really well, the KRK logo on the front lights up when the speakers are turned on. There is a great selection of connectors at the back (TRS, XLR and RCA connectivity), the dials are really good, you can feel the small changes you need/want as you turn them and they are of solid construction, you can tell the build is solid by the way the changes in setting feel.

Note 1: Studio monitors are sold individually, so don't cause yourself grief buy accidentally buying only 1 studio monitor you either need to set the "Quantity" to 2 in the basket or you can buy a bundle like I did Thomann.de have a bundle which include the following: you get 2 studio monitors, 2 x UK power cords are included free and 2 pads for reducing vibration are also included for free.

Note 2: The instrument cables (XLR, TRS or RCA cables) are not included, they have to be added to the basket.

Note 3: These speakers weigh a bit, so if you buy 2 make sure you take needed precautions before picking up the box

Note 4: When setting up the speakers, insure the speaker power button is in the off state and insure the settings are all the lowest, this is to avoid any possible pops or crackles when you connect stuff (which could damage speakers and your ears)

Note 5: For the best sound, position speakers as per KRK's included manual, really handy, I had incorrectly positioned mine when I started and wasn't too please thought sound was only coming out of one speaker. KRK's manual recommend the best position (height and angle).

Amazing for Home Studio

09.02.2016
I work as sound designer and composer in a small home studio, with higly professional instruments. Near fields are a true challenge, especially when you design patches and/or produce music that other composers and listeners will use in their rooms: so, you must find a truly good compromise.

My advice is to buy the very best sound card available on the market (no compromise here, please...), then come the KRK RPC Rokit 5 in the game, and it's been a very nice surprise to see that the factory setting is already perfect for my set up (I placed them as distant as possible from the walls).
Perfectly built in a solid case, flat enough to mix and master, these speakers let me hear the spaces (distant-near, left-right, reverbs, delays) and the balance between instruments without stressing my ears, which means I can work for many hours without getting tired with the speakers quite near to me.

After using Rokit 5 for a while, I see my mixes and masters tended to be a little bit too low-end oriented, so I learned to give them a bit more high-end without fear.
Yet, of course, if you have a high end sound card and professional studio headphones, you will mix and master with no problems using these small speakers.

Of course, expensive and bigger speakers may be better than what we find in this price range, yet.... they cost a lot more, and in a small room (near field listening is a world on its own, and the "right" equipment to buy should be evaluated carefully) they might not the perfect choice. Bass traps may not help so much, unless you buy the very expensive ones... So, think about it!

I higly recommend these speakers for the great quality/price balance, and for the surprisingly good sound in a small home studio.
