    Yo guys. Finally going to be able to buy a couple of monitors in a few weeks time, I'm not sure which ones I'm going to go for yet, so It'd be cool to hear other people's experiences with them. I was thinking of going for either Mackie MR5s or the KRK Rokit RP5s. Heard good and bad things about both, and both are similarly priced - what are your thoughts on them?

    ive just got some krk rp5 (the old version i think) for £170 off ebay... ill tell you what theyre like once i get them. I used to use these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-PX-100-PX100-Headphones/dp/B00009QH7P

    not very clear sounding but the bass is really nice on it for such cheap headphones so im gonna use them to a/b instead of getting a £300 sub or whatever

    I'm monitoring on good headphones as well so sub bass shouldn't really be a problem at the mo...I've heard that the Mackies do have very good low end though...I don't have much room for larger monitors hence the reason I'm looking at smaller ones.
