KRK Systems has announced the availability of the R6 passive studio monitor, which features design cues from KRK's Rokit line, including radiused edges along the front of the cabinet.
The R6 features a molded front baffle, designed to virtually eliminate diffraction distortion caused by standard flat baffles.
The curved front baffle was engineered to minimize diffraction of high-frequencies, resulting in a sweet spot that is significantly larger than products with square or lightly rounded baffles, according to KRK. The baffle also houses a molded front-facing bass port designed to minimize low-frequency phase distortion and unwanted frequency emphasis typical of rear-facing bass ports.
The R6 voicing is designed to mimic the voicing of KRK's Rokit 6 monitor, and features 5-way speaker binding posts, a precision crossover and is capable of handling 100 watts (RMS) of power.
Pricing & Availability
The new R6 has a MAP price of $149, and is available now at music retailers worldwide.
