Friend has a set of KRK Rokit 6's, sounds good. Nowhere local I can try the Swans though.
So... I just found the KRK RP5G2 Rokit G2 in amazon at $103.99 the unit (around 200 for both) and wanted to know if you guys think they are worth the price or it´s better to go with other active´s. I already have ODAC and so on, so gear wouldn´t be a problem.
I ended up purchasing the KRK Rokit 6 G3 and the Xonar Essence One. I really, really, really wanted to get the ODAC, but I needed a nearby physical volume knob which the E1 provides.
I'm looking forward to experimenting with new opamps :)
I now have the choice of using RCA or XLR cables from the E1 to the monitors? Would I benefit at all with the balanced cables? they will be running near my computer and power board. Thet will need to be about 1m long each I imagine.
I remember reading somewhere that balanced cables can sometimes reduce the quality of the signal compared to unbalanced cables, especially when they are not necessary, any truth to this?
I ended up buying some starquad canare cables with neutrik connectors for what I think was a reasonable price off ebay.
