Studio Quality, Anywhere
KRK unveils new GoAux Portable Monitor System.
Borrowing from over 30 years of innovation, KRK has expanded its studio monitor offerings with the introduction of the new GoAux Portable Monitor System. Available in two compact sizes, the three-inch GoAux 3 and four-inch GoAux 4 are professional-quality monitors with a portable design, featuring Bluetooth technology. As a complete near-field reference monitor solution, the GoAux delivers the same natural and balanced frequency response that has become synonymous with the KRK name in a new mobile-friendly size for engineers, producers, DJs, artists, and mixers of all genres.
The launch of GoAux marks an industry first, with KRK offering a unique and complete portable monitor solution for traveling audio professionals on a budget. Both the KRK GoAux 3 and GoAux 4 are all-in-one monitors that can’t be found anywhere else. The KRK GoAux monitors feature Bluetooth capability, 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.
“With so many artists back into the swing of travel after COVID lockdowns, we realise that the ability for them to produce and collaborate on the move is critical,” says Sterling Doak, Director of Marketing for Gibson Brands. “This addition to our line of studio monitors provides the solution. The perfect sized ― three inches or four inches ― monitors in a carrying case, with renowned KRK fidelity, and the freedom for anyone to take the studio anywhere. This is a paradigm shift for creating when creativity strikes.”
With KRK GoAux speakers, glass aramid woofers work alongside a one-inch soft textile dome tweeter in a bi-amplified two-way design, while durable rear-ported ABS cabinets supply an impressive bass extension. Users can also adjust their monitors’ response to the room and personal preference thanks to 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.
Unique to the GoAux 4 are additional features, such as a measurement microphone and built-in Auto ARC (automatic room correction). This allows for automatic optimisation of the speakers’ response to the acoustic environment. The GoAux 4 also exclusively offers additional USB and 1/4-inch TRS balanced stereo inputs.
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 US$349 MAP, with the GoAux 4 starting at US$419 MAP.
The KRK GoAux is available worldwide now at authorised KRK dealers and through the KRK website.
