KRK Systems, a Gibson Pro Audio brand, has introduced ROKIT Generation 3 studio monitors (ROKIT G3), available in 5-, 6-, and 8-inch options.
As with all KRK monitors, the ROKIT G3 is outfitted with a lightweight yellow composite woofer that achieves very good dynamics.
KRK’s unique tuning process that treats the woofer, cabinet and port as a single, integrated whole provides vocal clarity with extended bass response. Additionally, a re-designed radius cabinet baffle minimizes diffraction.
The ROKITs’ reliable, analog, bi-amped, class A/B amplifier has also been enhanced to maximize headroom while retaining minimal distortion.
Each monitor in the ROKIT G3 line also has an upgraded 1-inch silk-dome tweeter that provides response up to 35 kHz, coupled with KRK’s optimized, proprietary waveguide technology for enhanced stereo imaging.
“This latest generation is a natural evolution of the company’s design philosophy: deliver natural, balanced spectral response, with low distortion and superior imaging,” says Gus Jursch, director of operations for Gibson Pro Audio. “We designed the ROKIT G3 line not just to the highest sonic standards, but to achieve a level of versatility that allows all users take their mixes to the next level, regardless of musical context.
“High- and low-frequency amplifier adjustments allow tailoring the monitor to taste, as well as provide a better ‘fit’ to individual room acoustics; the extended, accurate high and low frequency response results in mixes that translate over a wide variety of playback systems.
“What’s more, the new line maintains the ROKIT reputation as being ideal for a wide range of users, from those starting out in desktop recording to pro-level mixing and mastering engineers.”
The KRK ROKIT G3 line ships worldwide on September 1, 2013. For more specific information, go here.
