        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 8" Generation 3 Powered Studio Monitor:

        I read a bunch of reviews recommending this monitor. Ordered two: both were DOA. Returned them & ordered two more. One worked, the other took two months to fail. Called KRK repair. "[KRK] does not reimburse for shipping." After experiencing a 75% failure rate (in this case), and losing the cost for shipping and time, I realize the value of good service. I don't believe warranty service should cost the customer, and I don't recommend these speakers, or anything else by KRK.
        The sound? Meh. I got more bass response (and more control options) out of a pair of M-Audio BX-8s. The KRKs have been a lousy experience.

          Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 8" Generation 3 Powered Studio Monitor:

          These monitors I would consider the top of the line for Novice/Intermediate studios. They are clear enough that you can use them for just about anything you need studio monitors for. If you are a severe audiophile and sensitive to every nuance, you MAY see a benefit in goign to a higher caliber speaker. The point is for most audiences in recording today, these will be better than anything your listeners will use to hear it. If it sounds good on these, it will sound good on just about everything else. The only cons to them are the use in conjunction with the 10s sub-woofer and cabling and the tendency to give a loud thud when your audio interface comes online but that goes for nearly all monitors so no big deal.
