This photo of Steve Aoki in his villa in Ibiza shows him in front of what looks like a practice DJ setup, with a TV for the visuals, Pioneer gear, Serato running on his laptop, and KRK monitors. The monitors' size and placement of the KRK logo indicates they are the 3rd generation KRK Rokit 8 model. This photo is a screenshot from Aoki's documentary, ["I'll Sleep When I'm Dead"](https://www.netflix.com/title/80118930).more
I use them for DJing in my second studio. More suitable for listening than monitoring.
KRK has redesigned its wildly popular Rokit series of studio monitors, providing a broader frequency response, a new cabinet design, an adjustment in power for better balance, and several other enhancements. All three models feature a front-firing port that provides low frequency extension without boundary coupling, an improved speaker voicing for even more accurate frequency response, a 1" silk dome tweeter, and an Aramid glass composite woofer. They are lightweight, low profile and are offered at a price that makes professional-level monitoring affordable for even the most humble studios.
Other monitors have ports on the back of the cabinet. These rear-firing ports tend to create bass coupling with walls and corners amplifying low frequency information which will color your mix. The KRK Generation 3 Rokit studio monitor's design includes front-firing ports, which are just the right shape and taper to reduce port turbulence. You'll appreciate the clean and accurate bass performance this approach delivers, even at high SPL's.
A great-sounding monitor doesn't stop with a great cabinet and custom drivers. KRKs true bi-amplified amplifier system provides discrete low-distortion power for each driver. While the active crossover systems provide smooth and accurate frequency response, and again, accurate diffraction control.
Not the best monitors in the world, but they could be seen as the best for the money. Definitely want to upgrade soon, but for now they do the trick. Have never had an issue, and they may color the sound slightly, but only to the extremely trained ear. Great for beginners and intermediate producers. They do exactly what you need them to do at the price point, since monitors can be ridiculously expensive. Enough bass response to use without a subwoofer, but it helps.
good beginner monitors. But if you go serious business they are not good for mixing and mastering. But they got a good sound for listening music though
One of the most Importants. Mastering is one of the bests with this Speakers. can't be used for mixing though
A proven classic used in studios worldwide as proven reference monitors. Powered 2-1ay , ported monitors with 8" kevlar reinforced woven woofers and fabric dome 1" tweeters. There is a reason these have sold millions of units and appear in studios the world over. They are near perfect reference representation of recorded sound.
