    Home Recording Studio

    Posted

    If you are building a home recording studio GET THESE SPEAKERS! They are amazing. I've had mine for weeks and I am so impressed that I am taking the time to come back and write this review --and I don't do this a lot. Sound quality to construction… What you hear is what is on your recordings. Freq response is most impressive. Lower lows than you would think and the highs are not raspy like some tweets can be (They used soft dome tweeters. Smart choice) . Perfect near field monitors. CAUTION on the size of these speakers. In the pictures they all look the same size, but they get progressively larger. I initially got the F6 and they were so big but sounded so good I didn't want to return them. Bottom line, I did have to return them for something that would fit better on my desk, and the F5 are just as amazing. I don't notice a few extra missing Hz on the low end. Very responsive, punchy, accurate sound reproduction speakers.

    Accurate near-field speakers for the price

    Fantastic 'near field' monitors. They are clean and image very well. Make sure to angle these according to the instructions to experience the best performance. **I'm an electronic tech... These are relatively small monitors, with a small back plate. The internal amp circuitry is bolted to this back plate which then serves as a 'heat fin' to help get rid of the heat generated by the internal amplifier integrated circuits. Because these are only 5" speakers, this back plate is the smallest in the series, and as such, they run pretty warm, even at idle. Once you start cranking them, they get hot. At idle, the heating is not above what is safe. HOWEVER, if your installation somehow allows sunlight to strike this back plate while turned on, it will get TOO hot. This will shorten the life of the internal circuits, and possibly cause the output IC or ICs to fail, or have a shortened life. High heating or consistently hot temps also shorten electrolytic capacitor life. The inside of a self powered speaker is a hostile environment....captive heat, intense vibration, extended power-on periods. So a little care and thoughtful usage can extend the life of the monitor quite a bit.**

    Amazing value

    Great near-field monitors. Punchy low-end that isn't over emphasized. Crisp highs from a newly designed tweeter that gives you an enhanced sweet spot. Great mid-range frequencies that don't seem boosted at any particular range. Of course, these monitors are not completely flat response. However, if you're looking to add them to a system as a second or third pair, this is a GREAT choir. And the 5" speaker is a good option if you're already working with 8" or larger systems with subwoofers. For the price, you absolutely can't go wrong. Even if you're only using them as multi-media speakers for a computer, these kick butt. :)

    I recently bought these speakers for small house parties and DJ-ing as the 'music tech' said these speakers would be perfect for what i was doing. After about 30 minutes of playing, the speakers started to get overwhelmingly hot, and the sound started to become washed out (to the point where i had to turn off the speakers to let them cool down) After letting them sit for about 15-20 minutes i turned them back on, and they sounded great! but once again, as time passed, the same problem arose. I dont know if i got a defective set, or if tese speakers just aren't meant to be played loud..? I wouldn't recommend them to anyone who is trying to find an inexpensive set of DJ speakers...although im sure these would be good for home entertainment systems.

    I am a young producer mainly focused on the chillstep/hiphop/trap genres. I can say that these speakers are a huge improvement from my very basic and dreadfully distorting m audio av 30s. I used to rely solely on my Sony mdr headphones for mixing, but now these monitors make my job of producing and engineering much easier. The sound is close enough to accurate that i can create the majority of my creations on the krk's but i always listen in the headphones for minor tweaks. Overall, these are awesome, the bass is very tight even without a sub, and im glad i purchased these.

    These Speakers are fabulous for in home studio monitoring. They are self amplified and provide some of the most clear and precise sounds I've heard in a monitor that doesn't cost 600.00+ Also, they are perfect for mixing music and Jammin out on your MacBook when using Logic, or Pro Tools, or whatever your using! They had more power and more responsiveness than I was expecting, so Defintely a Best Buy for what they are intended for, which is music Production!

    Accurate Sound, Great Buy

    After long research and review reading I finally decided to give these a try. They sound awesome to be 5 inches. The bass response you get from these in your studio you get on cd/mp3 player for your car as well. I looked at similar models in this price range but I kept coming back to these. They are well built, no problems so far. I've used them to mix my hip-hop/r&b album plus a client's mixtape. They still sound as good as the first day. Great investment, wish I had bought sooner.

    These studio monitors sound amazing. Great balanced audio with decent bass response considering their size. Unfortunately, I did have one monitor fail after about a month of use, but I believe this was unusual and I am working on getting it replaced. Otherwise the build quality is impressive. Nice solid monitors with good weight to them and full-size soft foot to avoid vibrations wherever you sit them.

    The KRK Rokits are great monitors for your project studio. They are inexpensive yet are built with extreme quality. Great bass response which is important to me because I mainly record and engineer Hip Hop. Down the road I will most likely purchase the Rokit 8 for a bigger sound. They're also quite easy on the eyes.

    I did a lot of research before I bought these speakers & they came highly recommended on many music/studio/musician sites, forums, magazines, etc. I really like them. The clarity is impeccable, when listening to my playlists I hear things I've never heard before in songs I've had for years lol.

    Awesome Studio Monitor, Best Bang for buck

    I have tried many studio monitors, some with bigger woofers and more watts and these still outperformed them all. I use them to DJ They Are Absolutely awesome, one fell down 2 flights of stairs, barely had a scratch and still worked.

    I had a pair of JBL Pro monitor speakers and their just wasn't enough low's to them. These speakers definitely make up where the JBL's lacked. The lows are good and the overall sound is really good. You can't touch studio monitors of this quality, for this price.

    I use the KRK Rokit 5 to master my vocals and instrument sounds. I would very highly recommend getting these if you are a music producer. Don't wait to purchase these as they are always sold out at Best Buy, be the first to get them.

    These are incredible monitors for both home and pro studio use. Look great and sound amazing. Fairly flat frequency response and excellent for testing lower frequencies. Really hard to say anything bad about them. Highly recommended.

    I have one of these setup in my recording studio. It's not quite finished, but I intend to purchase a 2nd Rokit 5 in the near future. Great sound, without being overbearing in a smaller area.
