From Our Research Team:
Correct for Deficiencies in Room Acoustics, and Create Mixes That Translate!Room less than perfect? You're not alone - but KRK's got your back with their innovative ERGO. It stands for "Enhanced Room Geometry Optimization," and it's nothing short of a windfall to anyone who's ever struggled against testy room acoustics (and who hasn't?). Perhaps you've thrown acoustic treatments at the problem - and that's a good start. But the KRK ERGO provides a wall-to-wall solution - and an affordable one at that.
The KRK ERGO can be used in two ways:
Both of the above methods allow for calibrating either two sets of monitors (via the onboard A/B switch), or a 2.1 system incorporating a subwoofer. With ERGO, calibration is a painless process: flip the calibration switch, and the KRK ERGO uses its included mic to take multiple measurements, then implements proprietary algorithms to create a 3D image of the room. 1024 dynamic filters are then applied to control the audio environment. The 3D model allows you to preserve the favorable characteristics of the room, while correcting the offending ones.
ERGO corrects for your monitoring position (there are provisions for two sets of monitors). This gives you perfectly corrected sound while mixing. In Global Mode, the sweet spot is widened so that others (producers, musicians, A&R execs, etc.) can enjoy your mix in a corrected environment. The KRK ERGO doesn't color the sound or produce an artificially sterile environment, but rather produces the best mix for a given room: a mix that will translate better to other listening environments, since it was mixed in a "perfect" room. Get ERGO and kiss your room's acoustical problems goodbye!

Jeff Law recommended the KRK system, and after a few minutes of setup, the difference blew us away. The re-mix was not only accepted by our client, but they commented on how clean and pristine the new mix was.

I own it, Great Product!
by Christian Ortega from MexicoThis thing really works!! After doing the easy calibration process, press the little focus/global button and hear the difference. It's amazing how you can hear your mix stand together and controlled. ... read more [+]It becomes clearer and all the boominess goes away, letting you hear your bass frecuencies tight and solid. And the best part of everything is when you take your mix elsewhere and it hears GREAT!!! No more time wasting car checks...

IMPORTANT: It's not gonna solve all your problems on a very bad environment though. It's a very good complement for your system, not a complete acoustic solution, but definitely recommended for making your room better for mixing.
The only reason I gave this unit a 4.5 is that you can't bypass the D/A converters and the A/D conversion from the analog inputs is not very good.
If you want great results, use it through the S/PDIF input or as a firewire interface only.
Very Recommended, you won't be disappointed. close [-]
