Nicky Romero talking about how he got started producing: "...I was connecting my speakers to the mini jack on my computer [laughs]. I bought my first KRK set around then too, the RP6s. Still though, I didn’t know anything, I never had any formal training. I just asked questions, all the time – about everything."

Porter Robinson listens to his mixes on KRK Rokit RP6 monitors in his home studio, as seen in this photo. The photo is from a MusicRadar article, "Me in my studio: Porter Robinson" (from Jan 2012). He says, "This is my complete setup. It consists of a computer monitor, some software, the [lowest-end M-Audio soundcard](http://equipboard.com/items/m-audio-fast-track-pro-mobile-usb-audio-interface) and some KRK Rokit6's."

Those monitors are truly amazing and well worth the money. They have a very clear sound, flat enough for mixing/mastering while remaining very enjoyable to listen to. The low-ends are really nice, almost enough without a sub in my opinion, although the 8" version would be perfect for that use.

Got these as my first pair of monitors. Seem to be great monitors but a bit bass heavy. You can get solid mixes once you know your way round the monitor! It can be extreeemely loud and bass-y so I had to move down to KRK 5's in order to not get kicked out of my house.
