KRK Releases ROKIT Generation 4 at 2019 Winter NAMM Show

All-new, ground up monitor design with onboard DSP room tuning leverages over 30 years of speaker innovation to deliver professional studio sound to all.

 

Chatsworth, CA (January 24, 2018) – At the 2019 NAMM Show, the 4th generation of the best-selling studio monitor in the world will be unveiled. The result of a meticulous design and engineering process, KRK has brought many of the most advanced features from its higher-priced monitors to bear on its ubiquitous ROKIT product line. To experience the new ROKIT Generation 4 sound, visit us at 2019 Winter NAMM Booth #17715.

“ROKIT G4s are more than a facelift,” says Rich Renken, Product Manager. “These new monitors have been cohesively designed to make your mixes more precise and reliable, no matter what style of music you’re mixing. We’re bringing a new level of professionalism to the masses.”

ROKIT G4 monitors are a significant advancement, with all system elements cohesively designed and engineered to work perfectly with the advanced drivers made with Kevlar®, efficient Class D power amplifiers and front-firing port to extend accurate and tight bass reproduction.

“Although ROKITs are truly affordable, price has never been part of the conversation,” says Jimmy Landry, Director of Marketing for Gibson Pro Audio. “We’re fortunate that many award-winning pro artists keep using ROKITs for the results they deliver. The new line is a huge step-up in accurate pro monitoring and we’re excited to hear what’s created on them.”

ROKIT G4s also include onboard room tuning, with 25 visual room-correction EQ combinations, the only monitor in its class with an LCD to visualize EQ settings. Also, users will be able to use the KRK App to simply and intuitively set up their rooms for better mixing with a real-time Room Acoustic Analyzer to aid with angle matching, placement, and level matching of each speaker in a pair.

The G4 range includes RP5 (5”), RP7 (7”) and RP8 (8”) models for pristine near-field monitoring, and the RP103 (10”) configuration which adds a 4.5” mid-range woofer and 1” tweeter for mid-field monitoring. The RP103 also features a horizontal mode aligning the mid-woofer and tweeter vertically for more precise listening accuracy.

“ROKIT G4s are here to help producers, mixers and musicians turn their project studios into more professional environments. We’ve listened a lot,” says Landry. “And we believe there’s not a more complete studio monitor available at this price that delivers such high-end performance.”
