What's the story on this item? Anyone heard of it or know anything about it save the advert hype?

Not sure if it's a legitimate fix for crappy rooms (like my basement studio) or just a capitalistic ruse aimed at less than knowledgeable folk like me.

Great question, never even seen that before. I would be curious to hear an answer as well.

KRK are no slouches, but at $600 I feel it will be tough to find reviews.

I agree. I don't how long it's been on the market, but I would be very hesitant to drop that kind of scratch on something so unfamiliar. Any guinea pigs out there?
I'm off to YouTube to go fishin'.

I've heard it... It was okay. Overpriced.

Honestly, if you had $600 to spare, spend it on acoustic material. (703, 705, Rockwool, etc)

It just FELT fixed... If you know what I mean. Like an amp sim versus the real deal.

Now, I can see using this if you go from place to place that you feel you won't be able to trust the rooms. But, if you are going to be stagnant in location, spend the money on doing it right.

Nothing will fix a bad room except fixing the room.

You might have a 10dB peak at a particular frequency at one point - then a 30dB null at the *same* frequency a foot away. Or a foot higher. Or a foot lower. Or two feet away. Maybe that point will combine with another peak or null at the same spot.

How can anything possibly correct such variations?

It's a rhetorical question - Nothing can fix it.

All they could possibly do is *REMOVE THE PROBLEMATIC FREQUENCIES* therefore making a BAD room even LESS accurate.

"Honestly, if you had $600 to spare"... (leaves me out).
Yes $600 would be more wisely spent on real acoustic treatment like those mentioned by Cynic.

You can buy a used Behringer 8024DSP unit, play your own samples and do basically the same thing for a lot less.

And no, a piece of junk like that won't fix anything.

That guy is a dip in a valley. He doesn't even really know what the hell he is talking about. He kind of wanders around verbally and has the look of a lost puppy on his face once in awhile.
