I opened a new thread, because the question in maybe too specific. Did not see people comparing monitors in my scenario. Sorry if it is a dupe.
see audio clip for example:
I have a pair of KRK Rokit RP5 G2 monitors but on one of them when you only turn on the power it makes a horrible loud buzzing sound:
I have tried the woofer from a working unit into it and it does the same problem so it has to be an issue with the actual unit. I have opened it up and took photos.
I'm new here so apologies if I could have posted this in a better section :)
Today I purchased some 2nd hand Rokit 6's. They sound amazing when hooked up to my Roland MC505 but when I add a 1/4 > 3.5mm adaptor so I can plug them into my PC...I get this nasty whistling noise when plugged in. It sounds like a slight breeze is going through the speakers. I can't hear the noise when music is playing from the PC.
I tried turning off router and putting the Rokit's on their own power adapter/extension - no luck.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Have had a pair of KRK rp5 (gen 2) for some years and been very happy with them
One recently failed (bass speaker not working). I am trying to decide whether to send for repair (out of warranty) which will cost £30 carriage there and back, £20 initial fee discounted from repair cost when done or the following options
1) buy a single speaker of same model and generation (maybe £115)
2) buy a pair of the next generation (£230 or so)
I have Rokit 8 KRK monitors and they are headed for the trash. Don't be fooled by the cute yellow cones and the lighted KRK logo. It is what's inside that counts. poor sound and technical/electronics issues.
After the discussions I have been involved in, it occurred to me to ask this question. It's all very well and good to get myself the Dangerous Monitor ST, but, what about my existing speakers. As I mentioned in another thread, I do have 10 year old Mackie Hr824s. These were a step up from NS-10m Yamaha's and a pair of Alesis monitor ones running off some pre amp I can't even remember anymore. And they have served me overall, well.
