From Our Research Team:
Accurate Studio Monitor for Your Desktop!Fitting squarely on your desktop, the Mackie MR8mk2 is the sort of monitor you want when working on delicate mixes. With it, you get an accurate response that helps you fine-tune your mix. In fact, the previous MR8 was a huge best seller, garnering tons of great reviews from home users and industry pros alike. Here, Mackie has outdone themselves, giving the MR8mk2 all-new high-end drivers so you get better low-frequency extension and those clear, articulate highs you want. With an ultra-low distortion 8" low-frequency driver, a high-output 1" soft-dome tweeter specially designed to keep your ears fatigue-free, and a range of inputs (XLR, TRS, RCA) to fit into nearly any setup imaginable, the Mackie MR8mk2 is a great pick for home, project, and pro studios all over.

Boring in its excellence!
by Scott May from Addison, IlYES, boring in its excellence, as in: Mackies quality NEVER changes. There's never any variance from "spot on". I had a specific purpose for these speakers, not what you'd think. We are going to use t... read more [+]hem to display our newest Organ, the SK1 at the NAMM show, where you cannot play loud. Our high-power Leslies made for the stage tend to get me in trouble with the floor managers!! The Mackies develop a full spectrum of sound at a close range without the need for high volume. They are doing EXACTLY what I ask of them, and are doing it perfectly. And thanks to Kevin Scott, "my guy" at Sweetwater for recommending them after I told him what I was looking for! close [-]

TOO HOT TO HANDLE !
by Christian Jansen from SingaporeMY 1st pair of Mackie Monitors since I heard their Original HR824 in the 90's.... via the Track " Shadows : Apache " . These Mk2 has a very strong bass presence...via near-field in my bedroom. The Mid... read more [+] range seems to be overpower by the lower frequency .My settings was 0 for the Low Feq. filter. I haven't tried them on my Mopads yet..... My Mk2 are place on Soundking stands via spikes at the base on a Rug. I'm playing back at maybe only 20% on its Amp Power... I always use Pop Tracks to test its Playback color " Michael Bolton / Agnez Monica : Said I love you But I Lied ".... Warm Vocals on these Mk2. When you do try to Mixed your DAW tracks it can be Heavy on Bass... I suggest trying to play a normal Cd track without Eq via itunes to detect its Feq. color. Pop tracks with Vocals would be good, The fine details in Highs are clear though the mid range seems laid back when low & high strings are playback.... " Depeche Mode : Home ". The Mk2 are maybe better off as mid-field monitors or wider bedroom studios... Perhaps your Ears are your Best Judge! Cheers. close [-]

I use several high-end monitors in my studio a... read more [+]s I like to listen on different speakers to my mixes & masters. My main mixing monitors are my Genelec' 1030's with sub and they are amazing monitors but I have to say the Mackie's come darn close.
This is a huge statement coming form a die hard Genelec guy like me. The Mackie's might not be quite as detailed as the Genelec's but the highs, mids, and lows are crisp, tight, punchy and clean.
Another thing is the incredible powerful / full sound that comes from these monitors blows me away! Amazing for the price.
I would give them a 5 if the ports were in the front so they get a very positive 4.5 from me. close [-]
