    they are in my wishlist

  2. Dxrk Wxlf Beats May 1, 2021 @ 12:51 am

    Nice video Ed! I have the KRK Classic 5s, which are really just the rocket 5 G 3s, and the new mackie’s that I won. But I did want to get the rocket 5 G3’s when I bought my first krks

  3. matt papakostas May 1, 2021 @ 12:53 am

    Wish i could have them. Amazing monitors. Great video , keep it up Edward

  4. Zaskia STRUWIG May 1, 2021 @ 12:54 am

    Do I hear a South African accent ?? ! 😀

  5. Emmanuel Njoroge May 1, 2021 @ 12:57 am

    I love it 👍

  6. Lemon Station May 1, 2021 @ 12:58 am

    Should I get these or a pair of Eris 3.5 + Subwoofer (that I already have) ?

  7. 2 of each would be great, they sound great together

  8. Vernon Nicholls May 1, 2021 @ 1:04 am

    Edward I just bought these today and I am very impressed. Greetings from a fellow Saffa in Dubai!

  9. Ordered them with unbalanced Cables, still have time to change them because there are shipping problems at Thomann. Why do unbalanced Cables not work? Should I change them?

  10. Lemon Station May 1, 2021 @ 1:05 am

    I´ve read a lot of bad things about those Alesis 5 most important is that the left one sounds literally different than the right one… and it was not just one case. I won´t buy those

  11. EpicDubstepX3 May 1, 2021 @ 1:08 am

    The monitors are very good. I use them together with the KRK 10S2 Sub and I am more than satisfied.

    KRK also has a software for smartphones for these monitors, that helps you adjust the EQ settings for your room.
    Sure, maybe it’s not perfect, but it’s a nice feature nonetheless.

    And if anyone is interested, there is a small compartment under the IEC connector in which the fuse is located. If this blows, a replacement is included.

  12. Truth is these monitors are boxy sounding, they lack clarity and defined color… Make NO mistake this person is most likely being paid to promote these trash speakers… Don’t believe me…??? Go to Guitar 🎸 Center test them all like I did… Want real monitors… Go with Yamaha they are a little bit more expensive but well worth the investment if your serious about sound!!

  13. The alesis monitors sound a little muddy in comparison to the krk’s imo

  14. Afrik Trendd May 1, 2021 @ 1:12 am

    The Alesis got better quality in every way to me ☺️

  15. Chase Deaton May 1, 2021 @ 1:14 am

    Not sure if you mentioned it, but KRK has an app that will conduct a sound test and then provide a preset EQ based on how your speakers/room are set up!

  16. Darius Kooros May 1, 2021 @ 1:15 am

    The Alesis may come across as better sounding at first, but that doesn’t at all mean that they are the better representation of the actual audio waveform. It could very well be that the KRK are actually better at resolving all the details. That said, however, the price-point of the Alesis – for its sound – is impressive!

  17. Hello Edward how you doing
    Nice one dear keep it up❤

  18. Why are krk very expensive and alesis almost sound good and better

  19. Amir Sheidaei May 1, 2021 @ 1:15 am

    I’m literally ordering a pair next week! What great timing Ed!

  20. Maximus Molato May 1, 2021 @ 1:15 am

    JBL LSR305 MKII please

  21. SUSACCA Knowsit May 1, 2021 @ 1:18 am

    I’m sorry, even if a lot of people hate me now, but i tried to produce with boxes of this brand and i couldn’t.
    *For me* the worst boxes ever.

    I have a *Yamaha HS 8* and everything *sounds natural* and not as strange as with KKR o.O

  22. Maurus Fernandes May 1, 2021 @ 1:19 am

    Yay! Great video.

  23. Davor Pavić May 1, 2021 @ 1:22 am

    I am waiting for them already one month!

  24. Afrik Trendd May 1, 2021 @ 1:22 am

    Out of the U.S all these studio stuffs are f#cken expensive 😅😂

  25. Angelo Pablo May 1, 2021 @ 1:23 am

    Great job Edward! More videos to come

    no studio monitor giveaway LOL I’m kidding

  28. most Hollywood singers use this monitors

  29. I would like to say, as someone who repairs audio electronics that the prior models (can’t speak to this one yet) are time bombs until things fail internally. We know we have our work cut out for us when these come in.

  30. Ker Tenepere May 1, 2021 @ 1:31 am

    How to make it stereo setup?

  31. Earthquake MPower for the win.

  32. Namig Nazarov May 1, 2021 @ 1:32 am

    Very good!

  33. Good thing I’m saving up for a good monitors and i think G4 are the best. I’ll get a AT’s Headphones or maybe I’ll win on your giveaways haha! anyways you really deserve 100k subs and more. Super quality content, Ed! Can’t wait for new video again~

  34. Hey, "I guess those are mine…"😂

  35. Arby Bautista May 1, 2021 @ 1:34 am

    review the kali lp-6 next:)

  36. ive been thinking about getting these for a while now, but ive never had monitor speakers before and im not sure what interface or anything else i would need to get with these. could i get any help on this?

  37. Tomi Coulper May 1, 2021 @ 1:36 am

    The one person who dislikes this video, think about this, "why, if U knew who Edward Smith was then U would know"

  38. Mateja Mitic May 1, 2021 @ 1:36 am

    Can you do review of presonus eris e5.

  39. Nice! Also thanks for the comparison (i just think you maybe need to make a bit more pauses in your speaking, so it feels more natural)

  40. SSteam 4promo May 1, 2021 @ 1:37 am

    Nice review! So what would you like to recommend for mixing? Krk or alesis?

  41. Can u review and compare the Kali Vs Krk

  42. Keanen Brown May 1, 2021 @ 1:39 am

  47. wondir beats May 1, 2021 @ 1:44 am

    YOO saw this when making a lofi beat, the beat can wait, letss gooo edward!

  48. Nehemiah Nehe May 1, 2021 @ 1:44 am

    Rokit 5 G4 are the Bomb, would want you to please make a review and the difference between rokit 5 G3 and the G4’s and M-Audio bx5 D2 and the D3’s

  49. The studio I work at got these and they’re great and super accurate on mid-lows! Silky. BUT. It has a toy-like sound overall, constantly switching to other speakers for the upfront mid/highs.

  50. Shaman Knight May 1, 2021 @ 1:46 am

    those monitor are good
