a little fatiguing

By dxcease

from killeen tx

i really like these, and for the price they are great. however they are a little fatiguing at moderate to higher volumes after about 90 min to two hours of listening. i just turn them down for a while, and good to go, turning them up for bass checks. not the greatest for itunes, while in room, however they get real loud, so i can hear through rest of house if the ol lady has got the ipod. i'm not a fan of radio... i diegress, however. my mixes improved vastly after purchase, and will most likely run anything i ever do through these, in the future, for a final check after upgrading to better (or just more expensive=)) moniters. highly recommended for your first pair, to get you through till your deal, and subsequent genelecs.

Low End

By The Philosopher

from Atlanta,Georgia

If you are looking for a clear monitor, that will give you a true low-end, without compromising the reference look no further. I mostly work with dance music (reggaeton, house, drum n' bass, hip hop, etc...), and what I hear in my monitors is exactly what I get on my mix. Everything is there, including the very important Low-end.

accurate quality and provide deep rich bass.

By smudge

from Kansas City, MO

I upgraded to a pair of the KRK RP-8?s where I was previously using the KRK RP-5?s. The RP-8?s are a bigger, louder speaker. They can handle a louder sound without distortion and have accurate bass response. I bought these and have been happy ever since.

Great Value, Great Sound

By Working Man

from Seattle, WA

I bought these and was worried about them sounding "too good" because of their porting/deep bass when compared to the other low-cost monitors in the store. After using them for a while now, I find that they are indeed flat with a great stereo image. Their specs are 42-20k + or - 1.5db across the spread. Very impressive as most in this range are twice that. I find that I can listen to a commercial CD and pick out effects and elements of the mix that were hard to figure out with my Beyerdynamic 770 headphones (which are great). The impressive bass output made me worry that they are exaggerated but I am getting very honest mixes with these. I also found that they sound great for listening to music for recreation when I slap an EQ on them and reduce the mids/boost the low and high. They are very musical sounding and I got them for a screaming deal at my local Guitar Center. Nothing in this price range compared. Other great features are that the connectors are RCA, TRS and XLR, so they'll take anything (although I got some RF hum until I switched from RCA to balanced TRS). They use the standard PC power cords and have very nicely finished cabinets that look and feel expensive. They also have a foam base that covers the entire bottom to decouple them from the desk/stand. I am very pleased with these.

Highly recommended

By NeX PhazE

from Indiana, PA

Ok, I was referred by a friend to get some krk's. He told me they are a good monitor. He has the krk rp-5's and he told me that the bass is ok but does not really give it that knock. But after comparing to many commercial songs you can get an ear for where the bass should be. So I decided to order the krk rp-8's and I am very impressed. Once I hooked them up today I went straight to mixing my beats and the bass response was great. I feel they are definatley worth the buck. Im not disappointed in any shape or form. Acoustics are even good in my dorm room.

A great monitor for a great price

By Fuzzball

from Ida, MI

These are great monitors. If you need more than the RP5 or RP6 monitors these are for you. I liked these monitors so much that I ordered them right after I tested them. They handle a significant amount of power and they provide a very accurate representation of the material. The monitors are built well and they do not make noise. The signature yellow woofer looks neat in a studio to add an element of flair. The monitors provide a tight and accurate low-end response which is missing from many monitors in this price range. These monitors are excellent, I always check my mixes on these before making a final mix.

Yellow is your friend.

By nadsatrebel

from Chicago, IL

KRK makes nice monitors at any price. The fact that they even make this line is cool. I think for the money spent, you'd be hard pressed to get better monitors. Remember, I said money spent. At this price point there's nothing that can really touch them. Try them.
