I have three KRK Rokit 10-3 powered midfield studio monitors at the front in a 7.0 surround setup, with a Marantz AV7005 pre/pro, two KRK Rokit 5 at the rear, and two Infinity ES250 as side surrounds (dipole mode).
No need for a subwoofer.
I use the setup often for home theater purposes, but also for testing mixes from work (film & tv post house) and mixes from sound studios around town.
I have been absolutely staggered at how well these perform - especially for the insanely low price.
Make no mistake - These are a league above the better-known 2-way Rokit models.
* Exceptionally clean, accurate & revealing - yet smooth and non-fatiguing.
* Excellent 3-way tri-amplified design.
* Front bass port is terrific, makes placement a lot easier, and bass response more even.
* Uniquely mid-field / near-field friendly.
* Bass response is usable down to the low 30Hz region - yet it's very tight all the way down, with no booming or bloating (thanks partly to the front bass port).
* XLR, RCA and TRS inputs.
* Surprisingly flexible with room & back-wall placement.
* They're relatively large - but only as large as they need to be.
* Plenty of power.
* Having the flexibility to rotate the tweeter/midrange to have them on their sides is a godsend.
Compared these to the Dynaudio DM5A and DM6A Mk II, Yamaha HS-80M, JBL LSR2328, Mackie HR8 Mk II and Event 2020.
These are just unbeatable. Simple as that.
