I'm considering these 2 options as my next monitors.
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.

The JBL lsr2325p,  Tapco S5's, and Mackie MR5 are better than the KRK rockits and the BX5a. But if I had to choose between those two I would get the BX5a.

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.

you have the RP8's how are those?

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.

Yeah, I heard the Rp8 as well... they do also sound awesome, and they are LARGE!

I may consider using them for HT system!
