KRK Systems RP8G2 Rokit G2 Powered Studio Monitor
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs And that's the way it is.... 01/18/2011

This review is from: KRK Systems RP8G2 Rokit G2 Powered Studio Monitor

Pros: First, these are professional grade studio monitors. They don't color the sound. What you hear is the way it was recorded. With that said these are the most transparent studio monitors I have owned thus far. The bass is killer. They will truly dip down to 44hz as long as the source contains the information. I am a broadcast engineer and I have my own project home studio so I know what sounds good. If you really want to hear how compressed your MP3 files are then buy these; 10 to 1 You will start ripping at 320, WAV or FLAC.
The amplifer and efficiency of these monitors are unreal. The volume knobs are indented so its very easy to set the monitors to the same volume level. I have mine set at -6db (10 o'clock) and they are way loud enough. I have yet to move the volume know from this setting.

Cons: Not really a con, but they have a much narrower sweetspot than hi fi speakers so you should have them angled at you and they should be placed at ear level.

Other Thoughts: Recording:
Yamaha N12 Digital Mixer w/ firewire
KRK RP8G2 Rokit studio monitors
Crown D75a reference amplifier
Behringher 2030P passive studio monitors
MXL microphones
TC Electronics Pilot Level

Klipsch Reference RF-82 II B Floorstanding Speaker Black Each
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs They just don't know when enough is enough!! 10/14/2010

This review is from: Klipsch Reference RF-82 II B Floorstanding Speaker Black Each

Pros: For 4 years I have these speakers bi-amped connected to a VSX-84 Elite receiver. They are hands down the sweetspot of the Klipsch RF lineup. Excellent bass, Excellent mids and highend. Imaging is also excellent. U are not going to find a better speaker out there in this price range. They travel well to. LA to Africa to the Middle East!!! They are some bad $## speakers

Cons: Heavy....Very heavy

Other Thoughts: You must connect these to a clean amplifier to get the sound the designers intended. Don't whine and put less than 5 eggs cause you skimped on the amp!! These speakers rock hard!!!

Acer Laptop Aspire AS7741G-7017 Intel Core i5 460M (2.53 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 17.3
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have the 15.6" UK version of this. It plays Grid, Far Cry2, Hawk and other games very very well. The 5650 card is the key ;)

My desktop is an i7 and for the road and just chillin I use this laptop. More than enough power.

The only other difference is the UK version has blue tooth which make using a bluetooth mouse easier.

Cons: I had to pay for it!!! :0

Other Thoughts: Look, all these laptop computers today are built about the same. It's up to you to buy the one with the features and hardware to will do what you need it to do.
