Oh my, here we go again.... :wink: Truth is, I haven't been to this forum in ages and I'm glad I was reminded of it through a link someone posted in a different forum! I forgot how informative this community is, time to bookmark it again! Anyways, the question at hand (and let me state that I did search with both brands as key words and have spent the last 2 hours reading all I could find, lots o' threads!), is trying to figure out what the general concensuss is on KRK monitors? On my most recent visit to GC, armed with Radiohead's OK Computer, Massive Attack's Mezzanine and a Dr.Dre record, I indulged in a monitor shootout that left me enamored with a surprise 'favorite', the KRK V6. Once I got home I did a little reseach only to find that these are actually newer ones than the KRK's of days passed (the first ones released in '99?), these are the new V2 series (V4, V6, V8's) and my oh my, these V6's smoked the Mackie HR824's, 624's, Alesis M1mk2, M-Audio's, all the Events (yes, even the newer SP's). In terms of best overall response, depth, clarity, imaging and most importantly, the low-end, I was completely amazed at how good they sounded. On the bass side of things, what I noticed was how tight and controlled the low-frequencies came through, compared to others which certainly delivered the bass goods, but in a flabby and wooly sort of way. Let's backtrack to late last year on a trip tp B&H in NYC, where I got to hear what - to this day - I consider the most beautiful sounding monitors (within that price range, let's be realistic), the Dynaudio BM6A's. I always told myself these were the pair to get when I upgrade from my now seemingly "farty" Alesis M1mk2. My KRK observation happened last saturday, relatively still fresh to my ears. With that in mind, I went back to B&H today to give the BM6A's another listen. I wanted to see/hear if I should consider the extra $800 to give a pair of BM6A's a new home. Unfortunately, I didn't have those same CD's on me, just some random ones in my bag, so I used them as reference. No doubt, they are still as impressive now as they were a few months ago, but for the life of me, I was trying my damnest to think of a reason to get the Dyns, all the while remembering how I felt about the V6's only a few days prior... I think if anything, the imaging on the BM6 was better and perhaps the bass extension somewhat deeper. That said, my control room is rather small, about 9'X10', and surely, even something like the V4's would be a good nearfield for low volume monitoring. It's a strange thing, perhaps some of you have experienced this as well, you focus in on a set of monitors that you really want (BM6A), monitors that perhaps 98% of the people (at least on this forum) praise and revere, in fact I was amazed at how many peeps here have them and love them, yet part of you wonders if it's a question of them sounding "so good" that's important? Well, no, of course, it's how you learn them and how they translate, of course, but still, part of me wonders if I should just save the money and go the KRK route and use the rest for acoustic treatment and all the trimmings? (Realtraps are definitely on the shopping list). Thing is, I haven't seen too many reviews on these newer V series, which is why the dilemma is a bit inflated. From what I've read, most KRK reviews are referring to the older series, as these newer ones just came out early this year. There's also the new "Rockit" (RP5, RP6 and RP8's) and while they sounded good and were cheaper, didn't shine like the V's did. I know I'm beating a dead horse (100 fold), but I figure, eh, what's one more 'last discussion' before I get the credit card out. You guys all seem very friendly and knowledgable, it would help me make a more informed decision. Bottom line, of course, is that I could always take one pair home and go for the next if they take the piss.... Thanks for any more insights on this, especially for more on the KRK's, as I've seen more praise on the BM6A's than Hollywood's elite at a Michael Moore film opening.
