I am looking to buy some new speakers to link up to my Macbook Pro and also my Technics turntable. I have been looking at the KRK Rokit 5 Powered Studio Monitors. I am leaning towards these as they are powered so they don't need external amplification, but also due to the large amount of positive reviews they have had. I will be using these in a home listening environment however and seen as they are studio monitors are they ok for home use?. I have read a lot about them being "near-field" monitors so if I postion them around my front room like you would with hi-fi speakers will they still sound impressive, or will I need to be sat right in-front of them?. Also, how would I connect them and my turntable to my Macbook Pro?
