Review - KRK Rokit 8
Hey everyone!! Time for another review!!
I picked these up because I've heard so much about them. I have also seen them in many pictures of studios all over the place from magazines to internet pages and even books.
I got 2 of them for 499.99 from my local music store. When I got home and got everything set up I was surprised at the amount of sound that came out of these little speakers. When I went to sound engineer school we used a lot of Mackie, so I wasn't sure they would sound as good. The seemed to sound as good to me, so I cranked them up higher.
I used the XLR connection off the KRK 10" sub I bought and the two were very accurate from what I heard. I did quite a few cross reference checks between my production and songs that I wanted my stuff to sound like, and after going back and forth a few times I was able to match up the quality very well.
I always say, if you want to make real music, you need accurate monitors. These are extremely accurate, affordable and they look kinda cool.
A little side note on these is one of them ended up burning out after about a year and a half. It started blowing fuses and KRK didn't replace it for free because it was too far past the warranty. Other than that I am extremely happy with these and I think if you are looking into buying monitors, consider them in your search. For the price, you cant go wrong!
