Hi, I tried googling this, but every answer I'm reading is over my head. Buffer Size is something people advise changing. But for reference, I don't know what a buffer is nor do I know how to find my buffer settings. Someone else said to watch your CPU/HD meter, and I again don't know what those are, nor how to change them. Any help would be great, feel free to assume I don't know anything about the technical sides of recording.

KRK Rokit Loud Buzzing Help

Member for

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.

KRK Rokit 6 static/whistling

Hey guys,

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.

KRK Rokit, one speaker broke, repair, buy new pair or a single?

Hi Folks,

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)

Any suggestion for "KRK Rokit 8 RP8G3 Powered Studio Monitor", i am going to purchase this.

JBL LSR305 or KRK Rokit 5 G3? What is your opinion?

I am looking for good price and good quality studio monitors for mixing, recording, composing.
I found kind of interedting and cheap stuff.
So, it's JBL LSR305 and KRK Rokit 5 G3.
I heard a lot of good words about KRK monitors, but I was kind of disappointed. The sound quality was much better on JBL monitors.
KRK monitors seemed like Hifi monitors not like for studio.

What is your opinion? Have you ever tried those both monitors?
All opinions are intersted, I hope you could help me to make a good decision.

KRK Rokit G5 or G6's?

Member for

Was highly considering these powered monitors for my reference monitors in my home studio. I've read plenty of good reviews of how they're extremely accurate. Not to mention, a good price for the poor people. Anyone have any experience with these G5 or G6's? I'm assuming the G6's are more powerful and produce less distortion. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

To Rokit or no Rokit?

Wassup folks!

I'm in the market for a new set of studio monitors. I had some of the original RP8's YEARS ago. I had to sell them be cause I needed the money and it tore me in half. I'm looking for a new set of speakers but I've been using phones so long I don't even know what to go with. Can anyone drop some insight on what's good now for home studio use? It took me months to side on the Rokits the first time I got them. I was lucky because I lived near a GC and could go in and check out all the speakers in person... now I can't. Thanks for any helpful advice!
