    Comments about Mackie CR5BT 5 in. Bluetooth Multimedia Monitors - Pair:

    I was totally amazed with the CR 3's I bought a few months ago for video monitoring and decided to get the CR 5's for use as recording studio monitors in my home project semi-pro studio. The qualities of the punchy Cr3's that I like so much--great tight bass, detail clarity, transient sharpness, good stereo image. wide sweet spot, and amazing light physical weight, all apply in extended fashion with these larger woofers.
    The frequency spectrum is quite different, though. It is like the bass speakers are much more efficient in the CR 5's, but no compensation was made for this, so the high end is radically reduced. I mixed a demo on the CR 5's and was shocked when I auditioned the mix thru my CR3's. I will undoubtedly eventually obtain different monitors for mixing, taking greater care to obtain a set with a strong reputation for a flat, uncolored spectrum. I'm not returning the CR 5's because I love listening to music on them and I will like having them replace the CR3's for video viewing. This is the reason I rate them at 4 stars. As for music production, I am rather stunned Mackie would make two sets of monitors that would put out such incompatible frequency spectrums that I makes them useless for creating a viable audio mix.

      Comments about Mackie CR5BT 5 in. Bluetooth Multimedia Monitors - Pair:

      As a church musician the Mackie twins as I call them are perfect for rehearsing and tracking.
      coupled with the Tascam Digital porta studio 24sd you couldn't ask for more unless you're an
      overkill specialist!!
