    I've never used them but have heard stories of the drivers on the Rockit series "wearing out." I can't say if that is accurate or not.

    I have the KRK V6II.
    Absolutely wonderful monitors. I've already talked them up in other threads, so I'll leave it at that for now.

    not to many ppl believe in these huh?

    im just wondering how well they will translate??
    like how every one says "if you get it to sound good on ns10s it'll sound good on anything"

    can you say the same of the krk 6's? thats what im probally going to get..... unless better suggestions are made for the price.....

    i want to compare the krk v6's to the m-audio studiophiles.....

    can you put a decent amount of bass thru them?
    or are they easily blown?

    Not at all, it's just that they're still relatively new, nothing to do with belief. There are many other forums that may give you more results.

    That would depend on your mixing capabilities, your room acoustics, and your familiarity with the monitors. No matter which ones you get, you'll have to learn them, which can be a quick or lengthy process, as many factors are involved.

    See above. Personally, my mixes translate beautifully and these monitors would be a bargain at twice the price, imo.

    Believe me, you don't. Well, actually ok, go ahead. They're 2 different animals, imo. One is good playback speaker, made by a company known for their dodgey soundcards and flimsy KB controllers, with big wooly bass and top-end sizzle, separated by a Julia Roberts smile, while the other is just tight sounding all across the board, just enough bass, great mid-range clarity and highs that won't call the dog's attention. Do you want a speaker that sounds big and impressive, or do you want a speaker that will help you achieve good mixes. Go take a listen and you'll know which is which within seconds.

    You've read this before and now is no exception: Monitors are a very subjective thing and at the end of the day, what matters is a speaker that works for you, that's tuned to your ears and the way you work. The reason the NS-10's got so popular isn't because they're good, it's because engineers just got so familiar with them, they knew how to compensate in certain areas. Some people like the M-Audios, some people like Events, it just doesn't matter, as long as you can take your mix elsewhere without that panic/anxiety of how it will sound before you hit the play button. Take a few of your favorite CD's and head down to your shop, hear them back-to-back, you'll be amazed at how different 2 sets will sound from each other.

    For the price ($700/pr) I'd have to say that, no, you won't find better than the V6II's.
