I got a pair of KRK Rokit5 g2's for $245 shipped, so this isn't gonna apply any buyers remorse at all

I've had a pair on my desk for a while now. They aren't anywhere near up to my headphone rig for overall ability, but the tweeters are certainly very good. I hope to give them a run in my living room rig to see how they fare as I thought of getting the 6's to replace my old Paradigms. They shipped them to me direct in Japan, which was handy. I imagine they do that where they don't have a local distributor.
I LOVE that you can EQ these in accordance with your room properties using the on-board EQ settings (that's also how I could dial my Genelec 1032A's into a room so fast when I needed to ref a mix, or even do some tracking). A nice touch, I wonder how they are, with regard to timbre, compared to the Audioengine A5+ (a FAR better speaker than the original A5, which I though was outstanding for the money as well)??
WOW, I didn't even see Steve's response about the Audioengine A5+ before I typed mine just now! STRANGE. I've been LOVING my A5+ - I can rock them w/ my DJ rig (2 1200's and a Pioneer ALL analog DJM-500 mixer) and they won't heat up and cut-out (the original A5's would if we BANGED em all night into the early-morning hours).
Mr. C loves his A5's too - so I can't wait to install the new A5+'s in his place!! That spot rocks in Echo Park.
I bet that tweeter is FAR better, sharper and more prescise than any silk dome - that's for sure. The transient attack probably has so much more velocity with that tweeter.
You killed me Steve! Now I gotta hear these, and then convince the wife that I nee them. Lucky for me, she's a fellow music addict (put in plenty of time with boots on the groun
at Geffen and Sony/BMG too - so she don't give a F__K what things look like as long as they get the hell out of the way of the music).
The HS series is beat out by almost every other monitor in their respective price ranges I've heard. I absolutely loathe the whole line... (IMO of course)
Yes their price range puts them in a bad position but they are very transparent and revealing. I was used KRK and m-audio, to my years their PSU section is clean with no noise, both KRK and m-audio had hissing sound at 50% turned up volume. Right now their price have dropped alot. Right now you can get a pair with $499. But I cant deny I dont want a mackie (and right now this emotiva 4).
To my eas hm are like the ER4S. They are analytic but in a good way.
I guess...They're revealing like most 'hi-fi' gear, but I honestly think they sound like crap. I know people that like them, but most of the actual producers I've talked with dislike them. Granted, I don't know too many production guys either.
I'm hit up KRK, or Mackie.
Mackies are my personal choice. Though these Emotiva monitors look pretty sweet.
