Latest Versions Feature Optimized Waveguide, Extended High-Frequency
Response and Upgraded Amplifier
ANAHEIM, JANUARY 23, 2014 — KRK Systems, a Gibson Brand, is presenting its ROKIT Generation 3 Studio Monitor Series (ROKIT G3) at the 2014 NAMM Show (TASCAM Booth 6491). Available with five-inch, six-inch, or eight-inch drivers, this new line of two-way active monitors features multiple innovations that elevate KRK’s already legendary performance and further refine the company’s design philosophy: deliver transparent, balanced spectral response, with ultra-low distortion and superior imaging.
“The ROKIT G3 line not only meets the highest sonic standards, but delivers the versatility needed by all users to take their mixes to the next level—regardless of musical style,” says Gus Jursch, Director of Operations for Gibson Pro Audio. “The extended, accurate high- and low-frequency response delivers mixes that translate superbly over a wide variety of playback systems, while new high- and low-frequency amplifier adjustments let users tailor these monitors to taste, or compensate for room acoustics. What’s more, the new line maintains the ROKIT reputation as being ideal for anyone, from those starting out in desktop recording all the way to pro-level mixing and mastering engineers.”
The ROKIT G3s feature a lightweight yellow composite woofer that achieves outstanding dynamics. Many monitor manufacturers compromise the midrange frequencies to hype the bass, but the KRK ROKIT G3’s unique tuning process treats the woofer, cabinet, and port as a single, integrated whole that provides extreme vocal clarity with extended bass response.
Furthermore, the enhanced class A/B analog, bi-amplification system has also been optimized to maximize headroom without increasing distortion. Unlike monitors that distort at higher SPLs, KRK monitors are engineered to deliver clean, accurate sound at any volume level; the high frequencies are crisp, transparent and free of harshness, which complements the detailed midrange and precise—yet highly satisfying—bass. The upgraded one-inch soft-dome tweeter provides response up to a staggering 35k Hz, while KRK’s optimized, proprietary waveguide technology delivers superior stereo imaging with a wider “sweet spot.”
Introduced in 2003, KRK’s ROKIT Two-Way Active Studio Monitors have been the professional’s monitoring choice world-wide for mixing and mastering, selling more than one million systems to date. The third-generation ROKIT 5, ROKIT 6 and ROKIT 8 continue KRK’s enviable tradition of quality, innovation, and accuracy.
