Rokit 5 Gen 4 Vs Yamaha HS5, can't decide!

Recommended Posts

Ok total anorak 1st world problem but..

I can't decide which I'd prefer for my little home studio, running garageband/Logic into a scarletti interface. I don't want headphones (got those). They say the yammies are more faithful but the Rokits are more pleasing to listen to and the 4th Gen ones are better than the 3rd in faithful reproduction, but the yammies look nicer, and , and ..but... argghhh!!

PS budget is £250 Max!

Just another option, ADAM Audio T5V:

What kind of room will the monitors be set up in? And how close will they need to be to the wall behind them? Worth considering the fact that the Yamahas are rear ported whereas the KRKs are front ported - so they’ll behave slightly differently when placed up close to a wall.

Ok thanks everyone, I pulled the trigger on a pair of Kali LP 6's in white for the reasonable sum of £308 (interest free) from Andertons. I heard a lot of comparisons on youtube both in headphones and on my seperates hi fi and to me they sounded the best in qualty/price against the Yamaha, Rokits and Adams in 5 & 7" formats. Thank you all for the advice, as ever the BC collective is awesome!

The Yamaha have a more natural sound, I’ve found the Rocket to be more suited to dance music or beats. The Adams are excellent.

Never heard of Kali, would be interesting to hear your thoughts.

Cheers

I have the Adams and they are very good but I did have to buy the T-10 sub to get the 5th string B to work well. Also Logic X Pro and Scarlett interface. 
 

Kali is a new name to me to so will check them out as a comparison.
