After my KRK Rokit 5 G2s broke down, which had been in operation for 12 years, I had to choose new studio monitors for my home studio. Unfortunately, while choosing right monitors I did not have the opportunity to listen to everything I wanted in my studio, local stores room acoustics did not allow you to fully experience the sound, but what exactly could be assessed regardless of the acoustic design is the constant noise level of the high-frequency speakers ... Despite the negative assessments of the noise level of the KRK G4 presented in the reviews, I noted the opposite for myself - no others were quieter than these. As a result, without thinking twice, I decided to make a forced upgrade from G2 to G4 (I had only one monitor out of order, if G2 were still on sale, maybe I would buy another one G2). The monitors are the same height as the second generation, but a little wider, about 1 centimeter, the "KRK yellow color" has become a little softer.
And now regarding the sound: for the sake of interest I decided to listen to the master tracks mixed on Rockit G2 and was amazed about how much more detailed the upper mids and high frequencies became and the width of the stage increased. Amazing! I am very happy about the choice I made.
There is an LCD display at the back, where you can make EQ adjustments - unfortunately, due to its limitations, this function, for me personally, is useless (maybe the built-in 16-band equalizer would be more suitable for this), I made all the room adjustments using other hardware-software (also did not even try to use the mobile application ). What's cool about this monitor is that now you can be 100% sure that the volume level of the monitors is set the same, there was no confidence in the accuracy of the position of the analog regulators in previous generations. Also, you can make the logo glow a little less, or turn it off, but (!) when they are switching to standby mode, dim settings do not matter, and the logo starts blinking from the absolute absence of glow to the brightest, doesn't matter wether dim mode is selected or not. I could not find any other cons. Everything is very, very good.
