Sweetwater Advice

  • CJ Brown

    After moving my studio several times, I became more aware of how important it is to make my mixes translate across different listening environments. The neutral frequency response I get from my KRK Rokit 5 studio monitors lets me mix in any room, no matter what kind of music I work on. Even in the most cramped studio setups, when I've had to place my monitors close to a wall or corner, the back-panel controls let me balance out the low-end.

    KRK Rokit G3 5" Powered Studio Monitor

    Awesome litttle monitors!

    Nice lows and crisp highs. Even sounds good against the wall on a shelf (I know that's taboo but necessity being the mother of invention).

    My daughter, the Soprano, is going to love these!

    KRK ROKIT 5 G3

    Clear highs, fun but not overbearing and not even lacking lows, it's just right.
    Perfect monitor for mixing u'll know if it's a bad track or well made
    Perfect even for just listening
    I'd say best in class

    KRK Rokit G3 RP5

    Just bought my first studio monitors, the KRK Rokit G3 RP5, fantastic, as I can hear without measurements there is a good balance in mids, highs and lows, I think best for first monitors, for newbie engineers

    KRK Rokit 5

    I got to say "WOW" Perfect set of speaker's.. Made my mixing much better.. I would highly recommend these if your on a budget.. If your looking to make and mix House music, dub step, I recommend getting the 10 inch sub...The bass on the 5 g3 are good, but if you want the extra kick get the sub.. My Rep Jason Koone is the best!!!

    Deceptively Powerful for the Size

    After a recommendation for my sales rep, Alex, I am happy to report that these little gems really live up to the hype. They're everywhere for a reason and I've gone from a skeptic to a satisfied customer. I've seen some of the reviews on other sites saying these lacked bottom end, but I say try them out for yourself. Also, If you find the bass lacking, you could pair these up with a sub (I did) but don't be surprised if you find yourself not needing it ! Money well spent.

    Rokit 5 G3 studio monitor

    Great Studio Monitors that pack a punch for their size. Love the 3 knob adjustments on the back along with the choice of input connections. Super fast delivery as always along with Professional Double Box Packing in factory fresh boxes. Love the 2 year warranty provided by Sweetwater. These are high quality speakers.

    Absolutely amazing!

    I was amazed after listening to these monitors! I would recommend getting monitor isolation pads such as the ones by Auralex. They really help reduce the bass buildup that occur when the monitors are placed directly on your table/desk. And if you still have some extra bass frequencies, just turn the bass frequency knob down one or two. I have my monitors in my bedroom studio, and they still shook the house at the -6db setting! The best part is how it doesn't distort the sound when the volume increases like others do! I was amazed at the clarity with these monitors. So if you are recording in a small to medium room, these monitors should still get the job done!

    Krk Rokit 5's

    These monitors are great for for little home studios and for people on a budget. Definitely worth every penny spent.

    Loving These

    Not only is the sound quality amazing, they look nice as well.

  • from Fl USA December 3, 2013Music Background:

    Excellent near field speakers

    I put these on "Mo Pads" on stands. The sound out of these speakers is accurate for making your mix down. Extremely clean sound. Very impressed, and the generation 3 has better sound for your room type.

    Incredibly Balanced

    Purchased a pair for my studio and was very, very pleased with the KRK Rokit 5 Gen 3 monitors. The adjustability of the High and Low frequencies allows you to effectively tune these monitors to your room as well as your own hearing ability. The bass on these monitors is not overbearing (though you could tune them that way), but incredibly balanced; making for a near perfect monitor. The Lows are very smooth and accurate, and the midrange and highs are very nicely reproduced. The response of these monitors is very, very flat, and when adjusted properly add no unwanted coloration of your sound, which is exactly what you want in your studio. I was skeptical because of their small size, but I think that's part of what makes them so well balanced. No overbearing, boomy, or unnatural bass. It is as it should be... I very highly recommend these KRK's over much larger cabinets. Works exceptionally well for "older, more seasoned" ears.

    Great speakers to amplify my Kawaii ES100 digital keyboard.

    I was very happy with the sound of these Rokit 5 active speakers. Make sure you get the most recent generation available. I also purchased the cable to connect to the "headphones out" from my keyboard to the RCA inputs of the Rokit speakers. The salesman I worked with (Kenny Stratton) was fantastic and spent a lot of time helping me put this package together.

    Rokit Speakers Rock!

    Great speakers for a small studio!

    Rokit and Roll! \m/

    I mean what do you want me to say that the name doesn't say already? KRK (Kay Are Kay). I now understand and can hear why KRK is at the top of the studio monitor list and why KRK is number 1. I love the 5" set I have, I can't imagine having anything bigger and still be able to sit in the same room with them. These monitors are loud and crystal clear, you will hear all the highs and lows with no colorization.

    Great for small studio

    These are great speakers for a small studio. Not too overly bassy for small rooms but still gives a great low end. Highs are alright, still working on getting them to set right for my room. They seem to have a sleep mode which is kinda cool but usually takes a few seconds to kick back on, no real complaint on that. Overall, great speakers.

    Amazing small speaker!

    An amazing speaker for the size. I use it with my big Peavy's to get high fidelity clean crisp sounds which it ads to my keyboard performance. I used it on the job once with a Peavy K-3 And it did it's job! I probably would give it a 5 if I had bought a pair instead of just one!

    These lil pack a big clear punch. They are a bit deceiving given size but their versatility is unmatched. Whether I am mixing rock, hip hop or just enjoying musical scores, they deliver a clear solid sound.
    KRK's are worth every cent.

    Pretty Good

    These are pretty good, but the low end is not as tight as you need for critical mixing. The mids are the best and the hi's aren't too far behind. But I rather use $400 headphones for what these can be used for

    Not for Mixing

    I've had these speakers for 4 years now. When I got them, I was looking for something affordable to mix on and I chose these because it seemed like everyone had a pair, plus they didn't break the bank.
    It wasn't until got a pair of Yamaha Hs8s that I realized why my mixes weren't translating.The KRKs do NOT give you an accurate representation of what you're doing. Compared to the Hs8s, the KRKs sounded like they had a blanket over them. The mids are muddy and the bass is exxagerated. If you are getting nearfield monitors for mixing, this is not the path you want to take.
