    Top Quality for a Mid Range Price

    These speakers are pretty incredible. I was tempted to go with the 8" model but I'm glad I didn't because they would be obscenely large for my desk. I also have a feeling that the 6" will pair better with the 10" sub due to less conflicting frequencies later on. I don't think these monitors are entirely flat, but the minimal color doesn't do too much to affect mixing.

    ANYWAYS, to the important stuff. The highs on the MR6 are crisp but not harsh. If you have speakers with a really muffled high range (as I did previously) then they may take a bit of getting used to. After a bit, however, they become very comfortable on the ears. I think the mid-range is where this speaker really shines, all the way down into the low-mids. I was impressed at the low bass response; the MR6 picks up everything but the lowest of sub-bass, and that's really what a subwoofer should be used for anyways.

    If you're looking for an intermediate studio setup / recording rig, get two of these bad boys, hook them up to a Scarlett Focusrite with balanced outputs (also highly recommended), and get some balanced XLR or TRS cables. You'll have clean, precise audio with no noise whatsoever. Great for EDM production, which is what I'm working on myself.

    An additional sidenote - Sweetwater's obscenely fast shipping is always a bonus!

    Claritin For Your Ears

    Crystal clear highs and midrange with punchy bass. Wide field with good depth. They do not color the sound and your recordings will translate well. Plenty loud but clear even at low volume. Plenty of room to adjust for highs and lows. Probably a good idea to keep away from corners or close to walls (rear ported); mine are 2.5 feet away from wall. Recommend good isolation and damping...good stands and pads will do that nicely. Perfect for a small home studio.
