NASHVILLE — KRK (www.krkmusic.com) is offering a complete and portable nearfield reference monitoring solution in its new GoAux line. The system delivers the brand’s natural and balanced frequency response in a mobile-friendly size that’s designed for audio post professionals and engineers who move around. These professional-quality monitors feature Bluetooth technology, allowing users to connect wirelessly to their smartphone, computer or other Bluetooth-capable audio devices, in addition to standard 1/8-inch aux and RCA stereo inputs.
The GoAux is available in two compact sizes - the three-inch GoAux 3 and the four-inch GoAux 4 - both of which act as all-in-one monitors. The units employ glass aramid woofers that work alongside a one-inch soft textile dome tweeter in a bi-amplified two-way design. Durable rear-ported ABS cabinets help provide impressive bass extension. Users can also adjust their monitors’ response to the room and personal preference thanks to a built-in LF and HF EQ. The added option of connecting headphones to the front panel 1/8-inch stereo output automatically mutes the GoAux speakers for a silent monitoring option.
The GoAux 4 has additional features, such as a measurement microphone and built-in automatic room correction. This allows for automatic optimization of the speakers’ response to the acoustic environment. The GoAux 4 also offers additional USB and 1/4-inch TRS balanced stereo inputs.
With so many post production professionals back in the swing of work and travel, KRK recognized that it is critical for them to be able to produce and collaborate while on the move and in a range of locations. This addition to the KRK line of audio monitors provides a solution that shares KRK’s renowned fidelity in a carrying case that allows them to take their work anywhere.
The GoAux 3 and GoAux 4 each come as a set of monitors, along with power and speaker cables, adjustable isolating stands and a carrying bag. The GoAux 3 starts at $349, while the GoAux 4 is priced at $419.
