Been 8 days since anyone has posted anything, almost 9 days! Bad.
I just brought home these new studio monitors for the price of the KRK Rokit 8 G2s on clearance. That's how much the guys in the store (I know them pretty well) like these over the KRKs. Presonus Eris E5 monitors. They have nicer more clear high-end, their bass delivers much better than the KRKs, and are incredibly louder, even at half the volume level. O_o Apparently they have an obnoxiously powerful amp put in them. The KRKs at the store were set to max level and it was shocking to see how night and day the difference between these and them was. Suffice to say, I immediately knew I wanted these ones. The KRKs are good, certainly, but these could sell for twice the price (they were originally $150 each, but the guys dropped them to the KRK clearance of $120 each, which I'd put on hold 2 weeks ago) and still be worth it, hands down. The clarity was that of, if not better than, the M-Audio 5 inchers that were $300 each. I'm extremely happy, they sound fucking AMAZING and are so loud, clear, just, ugh, it's glorious. Computer volume is at 19 and they are filling up my large basement room. Raised them on a Philosophy book and old Skyrim guide. Got the Legendary edition, the old one has finally found a use!
So moving from these babies (which for $100 were the best speakers I've ever bought...)
Go to your local pro audio store and try seeing about listening to these things. It's unbelievable. NO REGRETS.
