KRK Rokit or Presonus Eris E5?

Hi folks. Going to buy my first pair of budget monitors.

KRK Rokit 5 G3 are obviously very popular for bedroom producers but do have a hyped low end.

Presonus eris e5's have very good reviews and apparently have a flatter frequency response.

Both are around 250 for a pair.

Anyone any advice or experience about these two?

Much appreciated.

Re: KRK Rokit or PreSonus?

I owned the rokits and found them fatiguing, a little muddy in the low mids and worst of all boomy. PreSonus Eris sound pretty damn good to me every time I listen to them at a music shop.

Re: KRK Rokit or PreSonus?

Hey, I own the PreSonus Eris E8 monitors and I must say, they are awesome!

I showed them to a soundengineer and a professional mastering-guy and they both said that the PreSonus sounds amazing and are better than a lot of monitors in higher pricescale. Both of em was impressed with the low frequencies, and said that they might have the best low freq in their pricerange.

So they are definately worth the bucks!

Re: KRK Rokit or PreSonus?

I feel I've outgrown my Rokits, that said I've had them 7 or 8 years and while I lust over Adams and Genelecs I'm not about to make that spend anytime soon. A lot of their popularity is down to marketing though and the low end is appealing to those who DJ through them. Are you near a store where you can hear a comparison? Maybe think about some Yamaha hs5 too?

Re: KRK Rokit or Presonus Eris E5?

I've owned the first gen rokit 6's for over 5 years. One of the speakers has a little bit of distortion / crackling, but I think that's due to some impact while moving. Otherwise, they have performed flawlessly over those 5 years. I have heard of others saying the low-mids can be a tad muddy sounding, but I think a lot of the times it comes down to the area they are being listened to in. They sound pretty good in my second bedroom which has some minimal acoustic treatment and no bass traps.

The best thing you can do is take some music you know really well (maybe some you've produced yourself) and listen to it on the speakers and see for yourself how they compare. You might be lucky to have your local music store have some in stock.

KRK all the way! Just be wary of having a good ear with the KRKs, they do have some color to them.

Re: KRK Rokit or Presonus Eris E5?

I have a pair of krk rokit 5 g2, I like them, and don't forget monitors aren't about good quality are about high fidelity, maybe in price/quality aspect you should go for Yamaha, if you wan't something top go for the adams a7, but I like my krk rokit 5 g2, I will keep them, they are more then enough for me.

Re: KRK Rokit or Presonus Eris E5?

I found KRK muddy, colored and pretty boring. I found Eris brittle and piercing highs (and thus a bit fatiguing). Jmho.

Re: KRK Rokit or Presonus Eris E5?

I have no speakers to compare to, but I have the Eris E5 and am very happy. Very versatile in how they can be setup with the diff inputs, bass rolloffs etc. I went in mostly for the flat response too. My 2c.
