Featured KRK User Cenzo Townshend
Music Producer, Mixer, and Audio Engineer
"Most engineers and producers I know rely on KRK speakers they are becoming an industry standard. My main pair are the Expose E8s, although I still use the older 9000Bs and also the latest V4s. The V Series price range is aimed at the project studio. I've tried a lot of speakers in that range, and have found that the Vs are excellent performers. KRK monitors suit the kind of music that I mix.

They are very good and very revealing in the mids so they are perfect for guitars as they don't mask any of the mid range and there's no sudden scoop in there. They also translate incredibly and what the bands I work with enjoy the best is that music they take home sounds similar to what they heard in the studio... because if you get the mix sounding right on any of the KRK range it'll sound good anywhere. I've tried an awful lot of speakers.
I'm sure there are some I haven't heard but these suit what I do which is mainly mixing music to be heard on the radio. A lot of times when you work with other monitors, or older more established speakers, you have to make adjustments to their sound and then make excuses for them. You don't need to with KRK. They are brilliant, brilliant speakers."
