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.
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 know i am new to this mixing n master, its not every one's cup of tea, but i wanna make my few decent composition... well, i have a separate room of size10*12ft having two sofa set, wall is not covered with any sound absorbing panel, its just the new living room, which i am going to use for recording purpose.
so, can you guys suggest me something about these monitors and about my room?
thanx a ton in advance.
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.
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!
