    Ignore the haters

    I don't write reviews for things, but after being so happy with the krk rocket 8's I had to leave my two cents. Great reference monitors for creating, mixing and listening to music. I like them more than any other monitors I have had so far, and for the price you can't go wrong yo!

    for the price and quality not much comes close. I have them setup for my DJ rig in my home studio and the sound is amazing with a nice low end.

    The KRK Rokit 8 Did Not Disappoint

    The KRK Rokit 8 nearfield monitors were a big surprise when I hooked them up. The HF/LF Level adjustment capabilities made finding the correct placement that worked with the modes of my space relatively easy. I produce EDM and recommend these monitors to anyone else doing so.

    I also wanted to note on Sweetwater's excellent customer service. That is the main reason I keep coming back to them. They are always helpful.

    good speakers, not good monitors

    These are great speakers mind you. I would buy them for my living room or something but Id prefer someone else for delicate mixing.

    I had these for a year and a half before upgrading to Yamaha hs8s (which I would prefer over anything). These have a nice full body but a relatively muddy sound. They don't have "3D" effect you look for in a speaker.

    But if you're looking for a cheaper monitor that has a lot of bass, go for it! But I highly recommend you to get the HS8s by Yamaha.

    Lots of Harmonic Distortion

    So these went bad and since they where out of warranty I had to replace the capacitors and power amp inside and to find out that the power amp that drives these things adds 10% harmonic distortion to what your hearing.

    Bad quality control

    I've repaired one of these twice and the other one once. Now the second one is self-oscillating.

    These sound great, but you'd have to be lucky to have a pair that keep working day in and day out.

    Bad speakers

    Don't waste your money on this speakers. Sound from this speakers is horrible.

    Time out issue - KRK un-helpful

    Bought these on strong recommendation and they sounded good, but they have a function where they time out after 30 minutes if no signal is passing through them. Apparently the signal has to be above a certain threshold or they still time out, even if you're using them. I wasn't listening at a whisper, but they still timed out. There's no info in the docs about this, no way to disable it, and KRK didn't return Sweetwater's calls requesting info. Seems like a significant design flaw and poor company response.
