KRK Gen 4 ROKIT series

PostMon Sep 05, 2022 3:09 pm

Has anybody used the G4 version of ROKIT RP 5, 7, or 8 monitors?

I have the G4 version of RP 10-3 and they're a big improvement over the previous ones. I'm wondering how the bookshelf sized speakers in this series would sound for Hauptwerk.

No need to discuss G2 or G3 -- I know they were crap...

Thanks.

Don't have it. But here is a review including objective measurements for the 5'' version:

Performs quite well for the price! Objectively the Adam T5V (which is in the same price class) performs a bit better: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/foru ... tor.18122/

T5V can get a bit louder without severe distortion, and has less resonances. But if you prefer the design the KRK Rokit seems to be a reasonable option in this price class.

I have the KRK Rokit RP7 G4.
I don't have a comparison with other speakers, but for HW, these speakers are definitely a recommendation.

Thank you both!

Reason for considering the RP7 over the T7V is that I only have one shelf location (rear side wall shelves where speakers are at an angle) that can hold rear-ported speakers like the T7V. The rest have to be front-ported to face out from the wall.
