What you need to hear, without coloration or artificial emphasis.

The KRK R6 is the passive version of the Generation 2 RoKit Studio Monitor Series from KRK Systems. For years, the RoKit series has been a popular choice for accurate monitoring in studios large and small. Now, the R6 provides passive monitoring with better performance and accuracy.

The R6 has curved surfaces for a reason: it sounds better. Traditional rectangular speakers suffer from diffraction as sounds leaving the edge of the cabinet are reflected back into the sound field causing phase distortion. The R6 virtually eliminates diffraction and provides a wider sweet spot because of its radically engineered curved surfaces.

The design of the KRK R6 includes front-firing ports, which are just the right shape to reduce port turbulence. You'll appreciate the clean and accurate bass performance this approach delivers, even at high SPLs.

KRK engineers and listening panel took the Generation 2 RoKit's speaker voicing to even greater levels of accuracy. With the R6 what you hear is what you need to hear, without coloration or artificial emphasis. This performance is delivered by drivers that are custom-designed by our world-class studio monitor engineering team, for clear, low-distortion performance.

The recessed tweeters of the R6 may look the same as others, but they don't perform the same. Careful design of dome and waveguide geometry coupled to the curved front baffle are optimized for on and off-axis linearity resulting in excellent imaging and a wider sweet spot.

  • Great nearfield monitors!

    As reviewed by ARTHUR STOPPE on 1/27/2012

    If you're looking for small-ish passive nearfield monitors, your choices are fairly limited to the R6 and maybe a couple others. But that's made up for by how good these speakers are. They're sonically identical to the powered KRK Rockit 6, with wide, flat, neutral frequency response, and great transient response and pinpoint accurate stereo imaging. They really do a good job of showing the front to back perspective in your mix, which not all speakers do. The R6 doesn't have any particular character of its own, -what you hear is an accurate representation of what's in your mix. It's very easy to get used to listening to and mixing on these speakers. Highly recommended, -just like all the other KRK speakers I've heard. The service from Guitar Center when I ordered these was great. They were supposed to arrive in 3 to 5 days, and got to me in 3. PS - The photo of the R6 shown here on the website is actually of an older model. The current R6 has that cool looking curved, diffraction-free front like all the other "Gen 2" KRKs. They look just like the current Rockit 6s, -they just lack the internal amplification.
