Ok, so I've searched relentlessly over the internet and I cant really find a direct answer to the question I have:
I currently have a set of Krk RP5's (gen II) that I'm auditioning and I like them - they are a definite improvement over the Audioengine A5's they replaced. However, I'm not crazy on the asthetics of the KRK's and on top of that, the equator D5 seems to be all the rage at the moment and I constantly read posts on forums about the D5 "blowing the krk out of the water" and competing with monitors as much as 2 or 3 times the price. Here is the problem: all of these posts are about mixing audio and I have no desire to do this. I merely want to listen to music through active speakers and I'm curious how these 2 would compare for that purpose only
Best I can tell from reviews, the KRK's are a little V shaped, and the Equator D5 is more neutral or mid/high forward.
Any thoughts from anyone?
