Sounds great, if they don't breakReview by Andrew
Bought a pair of G2s 4 years ago, so unless KRK/Gibson has changed their manufacturing practices, this is likely still relevant.

Now, the RP8 G2 monitors were an excellent price and they sounded great - wonderful studio monitors. Unfortunately, just outside of the warranty period, one of them started to develop a minor issue where it took about 5-10 minutes to warm up, but after that it was generally fine. 6 months after that, the other monitor fails entirely and just starts making fizzing and popping sounds.

I open them up to find some of the worst quality soldering I have ever seen. Cold solder joints everywhere, solder blobs, etc. The main electrolytics caps on the power board all appear to have failed. One resistor has come loose. And to make life easier, black gunk is smeared liberally over parts of the board (presumably to keep things from vibrating, but it makes repairability a pain).

Contact KRK support (Gibson) to ask about whether they have any suggestions / diagnostics / schematics / authorized repair partners / anything useful. They take an entire week to get back to me to say "Nope, not going to help you" and pass the buck to Yorkville, their Canadian distributor. I emailed Yorkville and it's been a week with no response from them either.

If you get a pair of Rokit RP8's that's well-built, then these are great monitors and I'm sure you will enjoy them. Otherwise, you might just be on your own. For the price, I expect things to last a lot longer than just 4 years. (Posted on 10/15/2015)
