JBL 305P Mk2 review

JBL has been well-trusted as a leading audio equipment manufacturer ever since its inception in 1946. Behind the entirety of its portfolio is a dedication to science and research which lies at the heart of each of JBL’s products.

The 305P Mk2 do a good job at carrying this legacy on, and I personally think they’re one of the better options available for budget studio monitors.

KRK Rokit 5 G4 review

The KRK Rokits are kind of like Boss DS-1 pedals in that you can find them absolutely everywhere. You can find them in the smallest of lo-fi bedroom setups, you can find them in pawn shops, in your uncle’s closet, and in professional studios, side by side with monitors that are far more expensive.

Engineers have come to know and trust KRK Rokits over the years for their consistent sound quality, and the new generation, the G4, is no exception.
