Chris, where can you get them for $200/pair. Amazon had them for $250/each.
Wow, I just looked, it appears this item has very recently been discontinued and replaced with the Rokit 5 Generation 2. The G2 may have the same performance, but they have raised the price $50 each; the Rokit G2 is $300/pair. Unfortunately, I can not guarantee the G2 is of the same high quality without personally analyzing/measuring a sample.
Looks like the last chance to get them 100 each is from Woodwind-Brasswind. They are listed as 'on order', so they may have one last batch on the way - I recommend that you call and verify this. I have purchased and returned gear to Woodwind-Brasswind in the past, and I had a good customer service experience.
It appears that 8th Street Music has some left, at $140 each + shipping, if you want to get them at the higher price from a place that lists them as active stock.
There is also an eBay seller with 11 new units left, at $149.50(free shipping) each. http://cgi.ebay.com/KRK-Systems-Rokit-RP-5-Two-Way-Active-Studio-Monitor_W0QQitemZ230231763776QQihZ013QQcategoryZ47093QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1638Q2em118Q2el1247 [cgi.ebay.com]

A dancing sub? Come on. Any speaker manufacturer neglecting the basics of their craft is clearly angling for a quick buck at the expense of easily had consumers. On the brightside, at least it isn't priced outrageously. Yet for me, I feel that $100 spent on a product should at least provide some level of quality beyond fit/finish.
