A review by Todd Simpson


Review

These monitors list for $300 per pair which is less than I paid for my KRK ROKIT 6. In addition, they sound much flatter and work better for mixing/mastering. One of the vids below is a test of a song mastered on both sets of Monitors as a shootout. I also did a test using them as an FRFR guitar cabinet in stereo. These are very accurate monitors and the best bang for the buck I have yet found. The review is of a loaner pair. I don't own these but plan to buy a pair in the future. The company KALI AUDIO is peopled with former JBL people who bring decades of design experience to the table and it shows. They didn't have to start from scratch as they already had lots of great ideas when they started the company, from years of work at JBL. I used to own a pair of the JBL 305 Monitors which used to be a great choice for budget monitors. I sold those. They just don't compare with these. I think I'll sell the KRK as well and just buy a pair of Kali LP6. Enjoy the vids!
