    got a pair two months ago, cant really complain, dont know how they compare to the KRKs but pretty love em for the price tag , using them for mixing though.
    the usb port comes quite handy

    I got the lower model 320


    Wicked clear sound but then they are my first pair of proper speakers

    I can imagine the 520 will be even better! :D


    Gooooooo for it

    I got burned buying a pair of those 320's, good sound but no fucking bass in them, even with the bass boost switch on!

    ^^^ the 520 wont have any bass at all aswell.. even the m1 mk2 cant do dnb justice, although theyre FAR better than the krks.

    say it all on the tin. these got 6" bass cones, the alesis got 7" or something like that, so theyll produce more bass, hence better for dnb imo.
