    Basically been scouring the web for any advice on this matter and haven't found anything swaying me either way. The only thing in the 8s favour was bass response; which some people said was negligible. Hence my dilema.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Peace

    6s are fine mate, seriously the quality form these monitors is second to none. Perfect for the studio.

    8s sound much better than the 6s. they have a more complete sound. the krk vxt series are better than the rokit series but obviously the prices are higher

    The 6s are perfectly fine, amazingly crisp sound, the 8s aren't really needed for bedroom mixing, can't say on production tho

    just bought a pair of rp8s the other week for production and they are definitely worth the cash, haven't compared them to the 6s tbh but you won't regret it
