As the DJWORX studio continues to develop and take shape, 2 things have become clear:
- These KRK Rokit 8s, though utterly wonderful, are overkill for pumping MP3s out to keep me company, and better used in the evolving performance space.
- We’re long overdue for another industry leading group test.
Now, having been bitten by the sound bug recently, and realising just how important it really is for DJs and producers, we’re planning a heap of articles and group tests. And the realisation that these KRKs are better used elsewhere in the studio, I figure that the best place to start is with an entry level active monitor group test.
I’m thinking small and cost-effective — space efficient and wallet-friendly is the name of this game. I’m also going with active because it’s easier to test and install, both for buyers and for us too. I’ve got an interesting format planned for it, and the whole thing will also be filmed. But I need to know what models you want to see in the test. This won’t be one of those 5 random model type of reviews — I fully expect to be neck-deep in boxes, with the plan (like our headphone group test) to put together the most comprehensive entry level studio monitor group test in the whole wide DJ world.
So… what models do you want to see? The sooner you answer, the sooner we can get it together. Help make this the group test that you really want to read. And any distributors/manufacturers reading — and I’ll send you an address to send your doubtlessly wonderful wares too.
