Very good value
Peter V_, 24.01.2020
My first pair of studio monitors, been using them for more than 6 months and got used to them so much. They sound really good. Their frequency response is great, even in my (yet) untreated room I can get the job done and for most applications my mixes translate well. I've measured the frequency response and it's fairly even (besides two buildups in bass due to room) with a nice rolloff in the highs - the official published graph shows a bump close to 20k, but my measurements don't see that. The class D amplifier unfortunately has some self noise, and after some research online I found a post from Kali Audio confirming that this is the tradeoff with the LP models. It's still workable, but below around -60dB I can't hear anything but the noise. I use spectrum analysers as workaround. The amp turns off after like 10 minutes of silence and turns on after a few seconds when there is signal. It happened a few times that the amp shut off despite actively feeding it, but a quick turn off/on resolved the problem and the issue wouldn't reappear for quite some time. They are well built and look very nice.
Overall I'm satisfied with what I got - for now. I'll definitely need an upgrade in soem time, and if Kali has something else in store by then I'll be sure to check it out.

Amazing monitor
Svarog, 06.06.2020
Got these to upgrade from an actually simillary priced monitors I already have in my home studio, because I heard a lot of great reviews.

I have to say that I was blown away by the depth, width and clarity coming out of these speakers. Low end is very solid and high end accurate.
As I mentioned, I already have a pair of 6" monitors that are in the same price range and very popular choice for a lot of home studios... but when I compared the sound, these old monitors sound almost like a mono speaker with a thick blanket over them compared to Kali.

I have seen people mention the hiss on these speakers being terrible... in my experience it is barely audiable, only when you come really close to the speaker, and of course once the music is playing you don't hear it at all. It is such a tiny problem compared to what you get for this price.

Pros:
-Width and clarity of the sound
-Crazy low price for such sound quality

Cons:
A slight hiss if I had to pick one... but in my opinion barely noticable.

Definitely the best choice for this price!
M.E.G., 14.10.2019
I chose between JBL 305p mk2 and these Kali.

No matter how funny it sounds, but I listened to their comparison on YouTube. A couple of months. Some brands were immediately rejected by comparison. I will not give names, you already know all the competitors of these speakers.

As a result, Kali LP6 seemed to me to have a more natural timbre without obvious colors. I ordered them.

ATTENTION: Please pay attention to the acoustics of your room before making any conclusions about the sound of Kali LP6 or any others. If your room is not prepared for studio conditions or it is your home, I highly recommend using stands for monitors like isoacoustics (I have ISO-200). These nuances really strongly affect the sound of all speakers.

I was not mistaken. I really got what I expected: a very natural timbre and good detail! For me it is an ideal inexpensive option for home use.

I also had Krk rokit5, Yamaha MSP5, ESI Unik 05. I highly recommend Kali LP6!


P.S. Delivery to Moscow without problems. But pay attention to duties from 2020. Good luck!

Best sounding budget speakers
Martin Hein, 12.02.2020
These are the best speakers I have heard in this price range. Very pleasant to work with for long periods of time. Although internal noise is recognisable for close field monitors it's not unbearable.

Only con. that bothers me is that LP-6 are not built for handling impedance mismatch between left and right channels, so be prepared if you use some passive monitor controller like Mackie Big Knob passive (like I did).
Vast majority of audio gear has matched output impedances so The Mackie Big Knob Active does in fact work with the LP6. (said Kali Audio support)

All in all LP-6 is the best sounding speaker in its price range and even tops some more expensive speakers.
And I have to say that Kali Audio has great customer support service. :)
