    Default NEW KRK Rokit 8, 6, and 5 G3

    Evening all,

    Saw these advertised by Absolute Music when they were first announced. Was thinking I'd see a post on here regarding them pretty soon after, but alas I can't find one... So I thought I'd open up a thread for discussion.

    Find out more about them here.

    And a quick video review (although a lot of KRK arse kissing) here...



    Has anyone already purchased the new generation of the beloved Rokits? If so, what are your opinions? Worth the upgrade, or just a lot of PR hype that they actually sound any better? I'm glad they've now included a bass EQ on the rear of the monitor, and I'm seriously considering selling my current G2's and upgrading to a pair of these once I get a decent listen myself.

    I'm hoping the frequency response of the G3 is a bit flatter than the G2. If it is, I'll definitely pick the 5 or 6 up.

    I did cringe at the video though.

    I'm lucky enough to work for a popular DJ specialist and I can say that the G3's are fantastic. The sound is flatter but in terms of clarity and replicating a 'true' sound of what you listening too or producing, you'll know that that is not a bad thing at all.

    I'm not going to name any other speaker manufacturers here but I've listened to the KRK G3's alongside other popular monitors for the past few weeks and they beat the competition in terms of loudness, quality, clarity and construction.

    I hope this is helpful.

    According to my book, ported monitors (ones with big air holes in them) are the devils spawn for mixing bass

    Depends on the room. I got 2 pairs of ported mons dead center in a very throughoutly treated room, they sound spectacular.

    Default Just great

    Krksys: "The system consists of a 1 soft dome tweeter and 8 glass-Aramid composite woofer. It delivers high frequencies up to 35kHz, vocal clarity and extended bass response."

    That's just great! My pet bat will be thrilled

    Default Please answer my question. thanks

    just wanna ask some question.
    I visited some music store and did test their KRK rokit.
    Found it very amazing and clear.

    I'm planning to buy 1 speaker(not pair), just to use in my room and not for a studio. hehe.
    would it be ok If I put it in my room? just for listening music.

    thanks..
