    Monitoring proximity.

    The connection is sufficient Jack and XLR symtriques, Cinch assymtrique. Rglage volume and balance of treble.

    Made in China. The exterior appearance and apparent finish are excellent. But if you open the beast is less impressive and discovers the reverse of the medal in the manufacture of the cabinet (retouching the hard, rough dcoupes, materials means double face to hold the mask, etc ...). The electronics are in rather doing well in appearance. But hey, should not expect a miracle with that Chinese manufacturing. The exterior as remarkable, choose what is ultimately what matters most in this price range (you can not have everything).

The exterior as remarkable, choose what is ultimately what matters most in this price range (you can not have everything).

    SONORITS

    I use them for over 2 years for electronic music (in my Yamaha AW4416 monitor).

    I find them very serious round, very flexible. The bass drum and bass are difficult to calibrate in these conditions because me who just loves the soft sounds that level, I do not work enough and suddenly I find myself rather mix with "hard" during ' a listening to other audio systems. The neutrality looks better in the treble. Level definition, the RP6 prcises are no more. The stro image is correct.
    I still feel that even forgive a lot of flaws to global. But I may not be used either in the right power range. My pice is quite small (35m3) so the noise level I need, quite low. It is very possible, that higher volume, the balance is substantially better and that roundness in the bass (too pleasant) does attnue or disappears.
    For a while I mix too serious, because I suddenly discovered after the effective bass reflex effect was good 2 meters away (almost 3). So remember to install them far enough from your point of listening.

    I have not any particular pest problem, even with a assymtrique signal. Very proper.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I do not have a big experience of listening to this kind of speakers. But I think I should maybe 5 "instead of the 6". Overall, I am satisfied, but I have all the same great desire to recycle (possibly after having found something more neutral and cold) enclosures "hi-fi" because of their strong round pleasant my ears (without pjoration).

    There is everything in this price range, the best and the worst. But these are all the same KRK generally closer to the best. Pregnant rendering sound certainly rather typ but very good quality for the price (<400 pair).

    SOUNDS

    I love the sound of KRK! what fishing!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for one year ...

    bcp better than yamaha ...

    with hindsight I would take the RP8 with more bass. I will add a subwoofer to fill in the gap.

  • Dependable studio monitors on a budget

    KRK Rokit Powered 6Published on 01/21/13 at 12:44
    The KRK Rokit 6 studio monitors are powered speakers that deliver equivalent sound quality to any other pair of monitors in the 'budget' price range. The speaker can take an XLR or TRS cable for input. The only real controls are a volume dial and a HF emphasis dial. Other than that it is pretty much plug and play.
    I compared the Rokit 6 monitors to the Rokit 5 monitors at my local music store before I purchased them. Although a loud music store is not the most ideal listening environment to compare monitors, I noticed that the Rokit 6s had more low-end than the Rokit 5s. I thought it was worth the money to spend a little extra to get the larger woofer.

I thought it was worth the money to spend a little extra to get the larger woofer.

    SOUNDS

    The KRK Rokit 6 monitors deliver a decent amount of clarity for the sounds they produce. The frequency spectrum isn't delivered perfectly flat, but this also depends highly on the acoustic environment the speakers are located in. I recommend listening a several locations in a room to hear how your mix is going to sound. If you only listen directly in front of the speakers within 3-6 feet, you are likely to add in too much bass or low-end. Conversely, sitting next to a wall will likely emphasize the low-end because this is where bass frequencies build-up. Do your self a favor a listen to a mix on a variety of speakers (headphones, car speakers, cheap boombox, and KRK Rokit 6s) before you deliver a mix to a client or send it off to be published/printed. Many times you will notice obvious things to fix on a mix after you have heard it through different speakers. I also recommend getting very familiar to how your speakers sound by listening to professional mixes through them by bands that you like.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For musicians looking for a pair for monitors for their home studios, the KRK Rokit 6 speakers are a reasonable choice. Unless your home studio is properly set up with acoustic treatment, room dimensions, and isolated from other sound sources (computer noise, performing insturments, etc) investing in super high-end, expensive speakers is a bit of a waste of money. There are obvious advantages to mixing on nice speakers than a typical boombox stereo, which make the Rokit 6s a reasonable purchase.

The frequency response on them are great, the highs are clean the mids are perfect and the lows are good but not over bearing. Most monitors today have just too much low end and I like my low end to be a little flat so that it can be mixed better and come out to make the song sound fuller rather than just sound like a bunch of bass.


    SOUNDS

    The sound is great, unfortunately KRK didn’t keep the exact same formula with the 1st generation KRK’s with the new ones because there are a difference from these to the newer ones they have come out with. The flat bass on these is what makes them stand out in my opinion. These are made for mixing or doing some mastering of your music in. Not to just listen to your music in at high volumes. If you want to just listen to your music go out and buy some Bose systems and listen.


    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, these are the best KRK’s to me and the original flat response is excellent. My right monitor had some issues and ended up going out on me so I ended up getting a different set of monitors from Alesis which couldn’t compare to the KRK first generation 6’s. I still have KRK monitors today but they don’t sound as good as the first generation KRK’s.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it?
    I use it for a year with satisfaction

    Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    I used to work with Electrovoice Kristal, an old MODEL with which I lacked bass, so I favored them (not good).


    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    Not much to say.

    How do you report qualitprix?

    I do not have too much lments comparison would require the cost of other Systmes but this one is right for me, any time the MODEL suprieur would still be the same welcome, a resource is still INTERESTED puissace for the dynamics.
    Beware the treble a little curl. IT CAN BE USED not in sound, the sound is thin and does not give the body or the volume that can be expected in this configuration primarily for voice.

    The KRK Rokit 6 monitors tell it like it is. No hype, no beautifying. It translates well, and these are my go to monitors. The 6's have the best balance, good low end, prominent and revealing mids, and highs that don't fatigue like the Yamaha HS monitors do. In this price range I couldn't find a better budget monitor for mixing. Sure others may impress you when you demo them at Guitar Center, but they won't tell you the truth about your mix like these do. Even when I purchase other monitors I plan to always have a pair of KRK's to reference to.

    SOUNDS

    Sound is really good, slightly better than the 5’s but no where near the sound of the 8’s. But none the less these will give you a clean accurate mix. If you are producing hip hop or dub n bass you will love the low end sound this gives you. They definitely have that “boom” and “thump” that we all love and that is in so many songs today. There arent many other monitors that sound better than krk’s. But they arent cheap, you will drop a pretty penny for the sound of these.

    OVERALL OPINION

    These are killer monitors. I hooked them to my computer as they are purely for listening to music. They are very true sound. Do not confuse hi-fi speakers and monitors, the monitors can really kill some songs with the wrong EQ preset. However, these monitors really go a ways. The 6 inch driver really kicks, WAY more than you'd expect. Admittedly, they don't sound like a full hi-fi system, simply because you need a bigger cabinet/driver to move enough air to hit those low explosions and such. However, for music listening they are fantastic. The tweeter is probably my favorite part of the speaker, it's one of the best I've heard. They get plenty loud, but honestly sound better the louder you drive them. These speakers are worth every penny.

    Clean sounds (highlights the encoding of many of my crappy Mix and MP3), the bass does not drool.
    For this price, and not forgetting the need to compromise when you type in this Cathegory, the dynamic is correct, not aggressive (€ 470 in Lyon)

    OVERALL OPINION

    They are running, I will return in a few months to confirm or refute my first impressions.
    A trial in the same store:
    - Tapco s5 (very low round but limited (bass seemed to lack a soul, mediums drooling (with a trough at the top), acute correct)
    - Fostex PM0.5 (bass "hard" mediums with better defined than the S5, treble responded better, the image is very impressive for their size but the definition of low is too limited for my needs)
    - Alesis m1 mk2 (big bass and low mids, which eat up the rest of the spectrum = boiled)
    - M6 has (to get an idea of ​​what happens: impressive .... but too expensive)
    - Fostex PM1 (too much bass, but excellent for the rest of the spectrum (I missed 100 € 25m ² to enable them to me)
    - Tapco s8 (comparable with the previous rear vents, still impressive)
    - KRK RP5 (no bass, treble harsh, headache guaranteed ...)
    - Studiophile BX5 (low imprecise, mediums flattering -> to avoid)

    In fact fall between the RP6 and s5/PM0.5 S8/PM1 (whether in terms of price and sound image so good compromise quality / price ratio).
    It is strange that they do not appear more often in homes French studio. All opinions found on these animals are in English, it's a shame, they are worth their price.

    Back after three months of intensive use:
    No significant surprise, an overall operation entirely consistent with low volume these speakers have a sound power voume impressive high. Single point crap, they are not armored.

    I stay on my first sense: they are between the pm0.5 (and similar) and pm1 (same woofer 8 ")

    The other models, which I cannot afford to buy, I gave up on ...

    I must say that I did not listen to songs that I knew but a CD Nova with songs in various styles.

    First, I started in the Listen to Fostex PM04 and 05 ... Honestly I was at the height of the bass response and the excessive presence of highs. While the 04 are very small, but even so the bass sounded very slight and not just on one track ... In fact I felt like a ringing a little box, even not too bright just soft (MP04 and MP05) ... And strangely, even the male trs PM1 sounded in the low frequencies despite their bulky size trs I find (in depth).
    Yet I must say that j'tais party with a view to purchase monitors under the brand ... The design remains enjoyable trs.

    I then cost the Prodipe pro 8, trs trs fat ... and not own the Low! The tweeter had a little trouble following this big coronation membrane. C'tait same thundering, I can not imagine cost a small piece of classical or above the OPRA. And even in hip-hop (this account mixer), it must be difficult to achieve not mix the sub-bass to the mix. In addition, their size is incredible and in a small home-stud is impossible to place.

    KRK RP6 Finally, and surprise! The COST seemed clear, rich bass ... but still much less rough balance that Prodipe. In fact trs just nice ... I imagine dja hour mix it ... In contrast to the Fostex which would have broken the head in one hour I think.
    I heard clearly snares, kicks, ways and saxophones all with acute too rich (head breakers) and low round but not too much ... just trs Submitted enjoyable. The RP5 I got are better than the same home MODELS Fostex, a sound card months I think. The RP8 but too big for my future HS.

    Conslusion: the lower the Fostex are too hollow and too rich for Prodipe. The flat Lagne KRK me a lot.

    I think we really need to listen before buying his monitors, I would have done a great blunder if not (thinking of buy Fostex PM05).

    I intend to return to the store my music next time to really decide a dernire time.

    Finally, for hip hop and electronic music has me parat qualitprix be the best ... And careful design, in black or white they are beautiful (with the event forward, very practical!).

    It should be even when the cost is the best.

    EDIT 13/03/2008: APRS multiple cost me back on my decision, I think I'll buy the PMI MKII which seems more neutral in the end. The treble of RP6 seem too flattering ... But it is a subjective opinion.
    11/08/2008 EDIT: in the end I turned to the ADAM A7 and I'm thrilled. I use them for a month or two so I rdigerai Retailer notice a few times in the opinion of the product concerned.
