Rokit 5 failure

Postby Gone To Lunch » Thu Apr 11, 2019 4:26 pm

One of my KRK Rokit 5 monitor seems to have failed.

The bass part of the signal is absent, leaving a feint treble signal that sounds like an old transistor radio.

I wonder are they worth repairing, and is it likely to be anything cheap ?

Given that they were not expensive, and I have had a good few years use out of them, perhaps I should just dump it ?

I already have another pair of bigger better monitors, so I can keep working. I only bought them for comparison purposes and because my then co-writer had a pair.

Sorry to be a storm crow, but if you don't fix the broken one I could do with the remaining speaker?

How old is it? Remember that there's a 5 year product warranty in the UK that covers failures like this.

No problem.

I have tried sending you PM but the form says you don't exist ?

The remaining Rokit 5 could be yours for £20 + postage, or you could collect from my home in West Norwood, London SE27.

Yours etc

Hi Elf,

I got your msg this morning thanks, but I am still somehow blocked from replying ?

Or am I doing something wrong.

I tried to contact admin, but I got another 'does not exist' msg.

Weird. I'm sure the guys behind the scenes can pass on my email address if all else fails. I'll report this thread to the mods.
