Active Studio Monitors for HIFI ?

The thread starts .....

Hi all, does anyone have any experience with so called "Studio Monitors" in their HiFi system ? I stumbled across the KRK ROKIT 5 G3 series and others in the same price / spec range. They all seem to be quite cheap considering there are two amps built in to each speaker... From what I understand, they are tuned for relatively close range auditioning which may limit their use in larger spaces... What do they sound like compared to a "HiFi" speaker of about the same size ?
