rokit 5 and Midi Contoller

I am in need of a deal on rokit 5 speakers and A midi controler to use with Sonar Platinum. The lava lamp can wait I suppose but I'm not sure how long. 
 
I'm not wealthy so I must save! THANKS for any help in this matter and your support

if you don't mind a dented box, see if you can find some b stock.. my speakers, 8" ones should have cost £700.. my price £450 due to box being damaged.. speakers are / were fine and new inside the box, also picked up a control surface for studio one a bit cheaper as well.

The Rokit 5 is a great value and I used a pair for many years.  Upon their demise I switched to Yamaha HS5s and haven't looked back.  If I hard to start over I would go with the Yamaha's.  On Reverb, used pairs are about the same$.  You'll find a variety of opinion on this topic.   :)

I did the same thing, but went with the HS7s for a little more low end after going through a bunch of other monitors. My Rokit 5s are now sitting in the closet gathering dust.

Only locally (I'm in the SF bay area) since I don't have the boxes and would be expensive to ship, like $50. Reverb, craigslist, or ebay would be your best bet. I would still go with the Yamahas if you can. The Rokits are mid-bass heavy.

Why have the KRK's sit in the closet when you can use them to A/B your mix.  I use three sets of speakers via my Mackie Big Knob to monitor my mixes.
