    Having had the KRK Rokit RP5 monitors since December 2008, the main choice at the time for me picking them was price and a recommendation by the salesman at Dolphin Music based in the UK. My main purpose for using the Rokits was/is producing and music mixing, which they are very capable of doing. Used in pairing with both a E-MU tracker pre interface and a Focusrite Saffire Pro 14, the RP5's have a consistent and defined sound to them which carries on no matter what interface is being used in conjunction with them. One of the other influential factors for me choosing these monitors was the impartial sound and flatter frequency response they offer.

    Having had the KRK Rokit RP5 monitors since December 2008, the main choice at the time for me picking them was price and a recommendation by the salesman at Dolphin Music based in the UK.

Used in pairing with both a E-MU tracker pre interface and a Focusrite Saffire Pro 14, the RP5's have a consistent and defined sound to them which carries on no matter what interface is being used in conjunction with them. One of the other influential factors for me choosing these monitors was the impartial sound and flatter frequency response they offer.

    SOUNDS

    The sound the KRK Rokit RP5's provide is very useful for mixing and producing, especially if you are just starting out. The stereo image is well defined and once you get used to them you will easily be able to tell when elements in a mix are out of phase with one another (for example when mixing drums a loss of low end in the kick drum or body in the snare) and when listening to top pro mixes you can hear extremely wide elements such as backing vocals in a chorus compared to more restrained panning of instruments during a verse for example.

    Dynamics (and sometimes lack of dynamics with some genres) are well respected. From the extremes of classical music right through to flat out, compressed-to-hell hip hop and pop tracks of today's charts, the Rokit RP5's stay true and honest to the original integrity of the music. You will also be able to tell when you hear a track that has not been mixed properly, as the RP5's will not 'hype' bad mixes or recordings to make them sound good unlike the majority of consumer speakers available today. You don't buy these monitors to make all your music sound good with a ridiculously inflated bass or treble response, you buy them to tell you the truth about your mixes so you can craft it to be neutral and suit any music style.

    The spectrum is fairly presented (with a frequency response of 45Hz all the way up to 35kHz incase your dog needs to mix a track), there are also controls on the back of the speakers to control the high frequency volume amount they give out incase the room you are mixing in is not acoustically treated and has a particular preference to either enhancing the high frequencies too much or soaking them up. Depending on the style of music you are working on, the low end sub response may not be enough for you with the 5" Aramid Glass Composite woofers, so adding a dedicated subwoofer to the setup might be an idea in that case.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For the price range the Rokit RP5's are in, they can't be beaten for quality and value for money. KRK really spoil consumers with these reasonably priced monitors. Yes there are better monitors for mixing out there such as Genelecs and even the higher end models of KRK monitors, but of course they will cost you more than double the price of these. Add to that the fact that acoustic treatment of the room you are mixing in is just as important - you can have the best, most expensive monitors money can buy but if you're main mixing room is a loft in a council house then it will make little difference. These speakers are also quite portable for travelling with if you are on the go a lot of the time. At the time of purchase i tried other monitors by companies like M-Audio but ultimately decided on the KRK's, and the fact that they still work perfectly more than 5 years after purchase with no trouble is a testament to the quality of the RP5's.

    So overall, if you are new to producing/mixing or are a keen hobbyist with a set budget then the KRK Rokit RP5's are highly recommended, however if you are building a proper recording studio and have a fair amount of money to spend then i would advise looking higher up the monitor food chain at some of KRK's or Genelec's (as well as many other pro audio monitor companies) more expensive models.

    OVERALL OPINION

    One thing I would like noted: the new versions are totally changed not only aesthetics but also I think the design. Now all the components are molded on the inside, in case of failure no other choice but to sent back to the manufacturer ...
    I did more listening compared, and the new are really much worse.

The bottom is generous, although not at match for the 8"s I was listening too. But they were so focused and the bottom end so tight, that the 8"s sounded muddy by comparison.

    SOUNDS

    The KRK RP-5 Rokit Monitors are nice. The sound is extremely clear and natural. When you crank it there is no white noise that creeps. Great low ends and the highs are heavenly. Frequency adjustments on the back for tuning perfectionists. Good bang for buck. However. If you're rocking out hiphop or rap or anything with a boom it'll distort when its loud. If you forget to turn them off after using them they'll pop when you reboot the PC. If you put your cell phone or any wireless device on top of them they pop and make weird noises. Other than that they've been a great addition to the studio.

    OVERALL OPINION

    These speakers really are musically well balanced. So many monitors sound like garbage because they are balanced mathematically at the expense of the human ear. This whole series of monitors is made around the idea of striking a happy medium between sterile flat response and the more musical sounding EQ that these speakers have. These have become like an industry standard set of monitors in today’s music world.

    So I bought new E 245. It is a great depth. It's pramplifier. I use it in a home studio, to the electro music.

    SOUNDS

    Quite neutral it fits all types of music. I use it with a table mm1phonic overall sound is very well return any unwanted noise etc ... For the dynamic I'm pushing the sound remains clearly visible.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two hours and then have good knowledge of mo, nitor. The sound is deep the price is expensive but the trs phonic. Several models and the one for me.

    If I have to repeat the same choice of quality without hsit Yes.

    SOUNDS

    As for the rponse in frquence it looks to me plutt neutral, except in serious or low-mdium: they are forward, not trs pr cis. That said I think it is also largely to the placement on my desk, I have not much space and I put the 10cm of the wall in a corner ... Not good for serious frquences.
    On the rest of the spectrum has seemed trs trs correct and balance. Compared with the Tapco S5 for example, acute and mdiums accentus are much less and the sound is more homogne, IMHO.

    The image seemed stro trs good, but compare my old speakers (Multimedia + satellite box, yuck) could hardly do worse! So I can not say too much what they are worth in this area from others.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use them recently and I'm currently not. I have not yet worked with for now.

    Assets:
    - SETTING THE tweeter level,-1dB,-2dB, 0, +1 dB to 2kHz
    - The gain knob Crant prcis to rgler two speakers Manir same.
    - The curve is identical frequency drives trs same low volume, which is rarely the case on the walls of this range. However much the sound down, it was always the bass and the bass drum, all trs prcis!

    Cons:
    - SETTING THE gain and switch on / off the rear, as is often the case with this type of product
    - Too low / high mdium

    I find the report qualitprix excellent (230 euros / piece), and I do it again this choice without hsiter! J'espre ending for power have a little more room to optimize the investment and limit the extra serious.

    SOUNDS

    Like my predecessors on this product, I agree they sound Low / medium, which surprised me after my house because in the shop, with space and mess permanent bass were necessary. then at home in the quiet that's where I was able to account for its more than generous curves, that being said ... for the type of music I write it makes me deliciously well.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use them for 3 months and follow my moods, it's a good sign.
    what really get drunk on this product and here I invite the engineers and marketteurs thinking is the common lot to all pre amplified speaker, well it's the settings on the knobs ass! !! I want them on her pussy before! because I want to change my settings accordingly. I think that such a change will bring customers. And refresh my back.
    In short this product before proof of my loyalty I worked on the KRK V6 (power incarnate!) For 2 years. Then I had my little trick to Rock the house and it is funky home then ...
    I knew the NS-10 and the Genelec and the only thing to say is that each model is interesting in its level, bah yeah. The V6 is Corpuls, generous, NS 10 bland but ideal for a premix, the Genelec .... To each his choices myself I opted for a solution Honer and stout and perfectly adapted to the demands of amateur initiated. I am satisfied with my choice and do not regret this to the proper time.

    power is more than enough in my use of other care not to over-dimensional: it must be adapted to the room the Tapco S8 that I have been too powerful (it is a wall 15 cm) low bouncing everywhere cat and imp to have a good sound without pushing a minimum. The children and Mrs. unhappy lol.
    This is above the range is better and co makie such event but in this price range (€ 377 paid new pair) that is perfect for me. I will not make the mistake of criticizing a particular brand that is stupid and its not the forget it very subjective to each his ears, and taste perception try before you buy any c.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have since 2 months, I am very happy, it meets my expectations: small, more than enough power, not tired, and more beautiful.

    Config on another pc I have MAUDIO BX8 is on is better, but frankly, the difference is not significant for me to use a still quite intensive and serious home studio. The event low in front and not behind, which is convenient when the stick against a wall, it prevents low disperse any way, unlike bx8 example that you really off the wall .

    Otherwise, you can always be better for more expensive, but for a musician / home studio, I think it is better to put in more expensive instruments or microphones, which they have sound, and are still the bulk of sound.

    Really, very good value for money, I do it again the choice for a configuration similar to mine.
