Review - KRK Rokit 8

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

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!

Very happy with the sound of my KRK Rokit 5's until one started blowing fuses (about a year out of warranty). Very disappointing.
