KRK Rp6 g3 or Yamaha HS7

Hello,
Could you please tell me which monitors I should buy?
I know that krks have wider range of frequencies.

I don't have any possibility of hearing them before buying.

Music I'm into is electro house.

Greetings

Hey. Just had to make this same decision yesterday.

Listening is the best, and it sounds like you cannot do this. Other option may be to call a reputable dealer (or two), and there are many, describe your application and they may be able to provide a recommendation based upon what you are doing.

Good luck.

krk's tend to have more of a kick to them, while the HS7's translate better when it comes to mixing.

It's a preference thing, but after having worked with both I really liked the Yamaha's more for mixing.
But for the old banging of the beats the KRK's pumped a little better.

Thanks guys. And how about the hz frequencies? As for krk it is 38hz - 35 khz.
Yamaha's: 43hz - 30khz. Seems like krks are better then. What do you think?

I ended up going with the HS-7s and they should arrive Friday.


Regarding the 5Hz difference in low end, you can always add a sub later. Another option is to get a set of headphones as another point of reference, if you don't already have a set.

Not alot of difference in price between these and the HS8/KRK 8's Go bigger.

Good luck.

everything above 20Khz is not important

and both monitors are will not properly translate that much of low end. I used to walk 3 meters back into the corner of the room to clearly hear the sub bass.
