Mackie have announced a complete refresh of their affordable MR Series powered studio monitors. Designed for home studios, content creators and multimedia, the MR Series is available in the 5” MR524, 6.5” MR624, and the 8” MR824 plus the 10” MRS10 companion powered subwoofer.
Continuing to make Mackie’s studio monitor designs more accessible than ever, the MR Series features the company’s logarithmic waveguide which is designed to provide an ultra-wide listening sweet spot and enhanced stereo imaging for a consistent sound over a wide listening area.
“With MR, we saw an opportunity to really take advantage of some of our best studio monitor technology,” remarks Rundle. “By borrowing design elements from our flagship HR and XR Series, we can offer incredible fidelity and accuracy at prices that fit into even more conservative budgets.”
Equipped with versatile Acoustic Space Control and HF filters, the MR monitors can be easily optimised for your environment to ensure a flatter response. There are three different acoustic space settings that adjust for monitor placements close to walls, in corners, etc. Plus, the high-frequency EQ control allows for further adjustment to ensure an accurate response for your room. What’s more, included with each monitor is an acoustic isolation pad that decouples the monitor from the desk or stand for improved performance and accuracy.
“With more and more people turning their bedrooms and garages into studios, it is important to have monitors that can adapt,” Rundle concluded. “When you dial in your monitors with the Acoustic Space Control, you can mix with confidence knowing that there won’t be any deceiving boosts or cuts across the frequency spectrum.”
The Mackie MR Series includes the 5” MR524, 6.5″ MR624, 8″ MR824 and the 10” MRS10, and are available worldwide now. Sold individually, the US MSRP pricing is $209.99 for the MR524, $279.99 for the MR624, $349.99 for the MR824, and $559.99 for the MRS10.
