The KRK RP6’s (Rokit Powered) are from a range of monitors from the KRK brand which I have been using for over 3 years now. I have loved the sound of these monitors ever since I first used them. I have ran many studio sessions with these, and have had the pleasure of using other KRK monitors from the same range such as the RP6’s respective smaller and bigger brothers the RP5’s and RP8’s.
The signature yellow cone enclosed in the jet black speaker housing looks brilliant! Along with the illuminated KRK logo these monitors certainly look the part! The housing consists of a woofer (50W) and a tweeter (18W).

As I have said, in my work over the last 3 years I have used these monitors extensively. I have also had access to a broad spectrum of different monitors to compare the sound too other monitors, both budget and pro.

As with all monitors expensive or budget, its down to does it let you create a great mix?I I feel the KRK RP6’s allow me to do this. Yes I will be acquiring more monitors in the near future, but I wont be retiring these anytime soon. For a pair of monitors that are around the £300 mark, you certainly get a lot for your money. The RP6’s have a great tone that gives you brilliant fidelity when mixing and I believe have helped me create great mixes and I’m sure many would agree with me. The Pro Audio Web Blog rates them 5/5!
