The word on the street...
"As a certified high-end monitor snob I was a bit taken aback by the performance of these reasonably-priced, compact, powered nearfield monitors. The third-generation KRK Rokit's are surprisingly good-sounding speakers, especially considering their modest cost."
"The Rokit G3's can push out stout SPLs in small to midsize rooms, and although their overall frequency response is admirably broad and reasonably flat, you can adjust the EQ balance to suit your setup and tastes. They're very solid and punchy sounding, with good detail and imaging, and a relatively wide stereo 'sweet spot.' They provide honest, accurate sound quality that most headphones, computer speakers, and 'hi-fi' systems can't come close to measuring up to; their price makes them an attractive entry point to the world of professional studio monitors."
"I'm impressed enough that in the future I'll be recommending these speakers to people who ask for suggestions about good-sounding, affordable, powered nearfields, as well as to folks on a tight budget who want to make the transition from mixing on headphones or computer speakers to using real studio monitors."
"The third-generation KRK Rokit's offers real improvements over their highly successful predecessors, and with their solid performance and entry-level price, they'd make a great pair of "first monitors" - and due to their sound quality, they are also worthy of your consideration when upgrading from lesser-quality budget monitors too. Great job KRK!"...Phil O'Keefe - multi-instrumentalist, recording engineer / producer and the Senior Editor of Harmony Central.
