KRK Systems was founded in 1986, by Keith Klawitter. He had been an engineer for years working on such films as "Brainstorm" and "The Doors". Frustrated by the fact he couldn't find a monitor that gave him clarity and accuracy, he began building his own monitors. Other engineers and producers began to take notice of Keith's high-end studio monitors, a groundswell began and a company was born. They also began commissioning him to build custom main systems as well. We attribute this remarkable beginning to Keith's affinity for electronics, his passion for music, and his originality and insight.
Great sound doesn't start with the studio, the microphone or the latest wiz-bang sampling device. It starts in the heart, and it starts with the truth...the very essence of the KRK design philosophy. This is why we come to work everyday. To deliver products that are true to the legacy that KRK was founded on.
