I've just heard the rokit5 and was impressed...
Anyone have a detailed opinion on which is better?? Thx!!
I've heard both and TBH I am leaning towards the Yamaha HS50M. Really good reviews on them if you look around. They sound similar to the KRK's, but I found that the KRK's could be a little harsh sometimes. Take a look, definitely worth it.
Thanks for the feedback guys...
I'll check them out - but as the Yamaha/Tapco are not available readily for auditioning... let alone buy - ... I'll look further- I'm sure I'll find something,
also, when you guys are saying better... ... what do you mean? - flatter response? louder? better lows?- tighter? warmer??
I heard them both again today (the KRK and Yamaha). The RP5 is very nice, don't get me wrong, I think the difference is it's just a little brighter than the Yamaha HS50m. I think the HS50 hits that sweet spot in the middle where it has great highs without being too harsh. That being said, if you have the money, which is only a little extra, the RP6's sounded great and had a decent amount more bass.
Beautiful. They sound a lot better than the 5/6's because there is more bass which gets rid of the harshness there sometimes is with the 5's or 6's. Very clear, precise sound with thumping bass if you want it.
