    Default KRK Rokit 5 or Yamaha HS50M

    Hey guys, I'm looking for some good near field monitor for my bedroom. Any suggestions mainly for house, electro, trance. pretty much all the dance genres..
    Thanks!

    Head to your local GC and test yourself.

    KRK is bass heavy. Yamaha is more flat.

    Neither one really provides a whole lot of bass. It's just bass heavy relative to the Yamahas. Again, test em out.

    The KRKs are real muddy compared to the HS50Ms IMO. You might not find the same.

    I had the Krk rokit 6s then switched for the hs50ms. Big upgrade for producing . Much flatter. I have since upgraded to a set of genelec 8040s (even bigger upgrade). If you are djing on them the krks will be fine. If you are producing you want a nice flat set of monitors.
