I've actually had a lot of experience with these speakers. I'm a pro audio engineer, and have had albums on the billboard charts. To me these monitors are just not that good at all. The difference between what you hear and what you get in your car speakers is huge. Of course you can train your hearing to allow for that but whats the point. These speakers do sound great but they do not translate well at all. The only time I would use these was for playback for the bands. When it came down to mixing the album the first thing I would do is shut these things off and bring in some cheap stereo speakers we had in our studio office and hook those up. Thats what I would rather mix through because most people will be listening to your album through cheap speakers and not through $1,000 studio monitors. You would be surprised how many grammy winning engineers mix through really cheap, crappy speakers. Some that I know actually hook up a tv that has stereo sound and mix through that. So why pay all this money for monitors that translate like junk when 95% of people will be listening through standard speakers anyway. The only real requirement I look for is that the monitors can produce between 50hz - 20k.

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    I really want to buy these. ALOT. My tenor sax teacher Craig Christman has them, and they sound phenomenal. This is a steal deal. I'd rather get the mk2 because they are much better as to what I hear, but, these are good enough if you put some isolation pads under them. I love these. And to the guy under me, I understand what you're saying, but, why not do most of your mixing with these, and then do final stuff with Anvantone Mix Cubes or something?

    durable middle of the road

    By Wayout West

    from Las Vegas Nv

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    Like the full bass to high frequency range. Placement and surface are critical. Not for close up work. Love the auto on & off feature. Don't like the back end, hooking up cables a bit of a hassle. Impedance knob hard to see. Black coating on speaker cabinet shrunk on me when I set speakers in sun for just a few minutes. My mistake. Can turn way up without distortion. Kinda dull looking, hoping to try them out on my large Sony 46" Hi Def lcd tv connected to Mac & Logic, set up for stereo speaker add on to tv speakers. Have other monitors in studio I like better. (Peavey PMR 312 kick ass Monitors) Use Blue Sky EXO 2.1 for small system quick check of mix.

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    There is a difference between budget audio, and real pro audio. Mackies give u pro audio, are packed with value and controls to blend in any room or studio. Its all in the sound. Music has never sounded this good, reproduction is astonishing. I started with speakers in the 500 range (for a pair) they just arent comparable. I won't even get into particulars because its not even worth it. Spend the money, your ears and music will be thankfull. The quality of your productions will skyrocket.

    Great for production, bad for mastering.

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    Clean and transparent. Best way to describe their sound. Though the bass output is a bit "boomy". You can boost the bass output or select from three cutoff frequencies to help get them settled in the studio. What's great about these guys is the sound, completely transparent. Definitely the kind of monitor you can listen to for 10 hours and not get an ear bleed. Did I mention that these things PUMP. I really mean that, they are the low end of the "real deal". They are built rock solid and can take a beating. I would recommend these for production and mixing work. Certainly not mastering :)

    Really good monitors

    By Bassmain69

    from Chicago

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    If you work at moderate to loud volumes these speakers can handle anything you throw at them. Immediate recognition of any plug ins you apply to your music. There is a learning curve with these (as with all ) speakers because they can reproduce a lot of bass. These are not the speakers for a one bedroom studio apartment DAW. These are professional speakers. Not good speakers for low volume but in a pro studio application - these speakers will get you all the way there.

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    I'm borrowing these from a friend of mine while he is in Europe, and I can't believe I would ever be this impressed with monitors. I've been using a mix of some decent M Audio monitors and some nice computer speakers to mix, but I've always been unhappy with my mix. As a bassist, I was never happy with the sound I got with the old setup. But with these I am able to hear the end product on the spot- not more getting in my car and finding something completely different than what I had mixed the night before! Now I just have to save some cash for a pair of my own before my buddy gets back from Europe. :-)

    Buy these. You will not regret it!

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    At first I had reservations about spending this much on monitors for my studio, but I finally took the dive, and I'm very glad that I did. Made in China, yeah, but that apparently isn't impacting the quality of these speakers. They are rock solid (heavy too) built with high quality materials and parts. They look great too! So I hooked them up and adjusted the back panel controls to compensate for my studio acoustics, and ran an oscillator sweep to test for buzzing (it's what I do with every new speaker I buy). No buzzing at any frequency (except for some loose equipment in the room), no audible resonating either. I did discover one thing though: that is, these things totally eliminate the need for a subwoofer. They play amazingly low for speakers their size! Producing with the 824's is absolutely wonderful. These monitors are completely transparent to the mix, so you hear exactly what your music is doing. The quality of my production has increased substantially with them and they are built to serve me for many many years to come. After using them for almost a month, I cannot find a single flaw in these speakers. The Mackie HR824's are worth every penny. Buy them. You will not regret it.

    These are studio monitors!!!

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    After using lots of other cheaper monitors I finaly shelled out the cash for these. I used to use a pair of Pro 3-way JBL Studio Monitors (but they wern't mine) and the Makie's remind me of how good those really expensive JBL's sounded. Nice flat responce and smooth (not overbearing) bass. Some of the music I do has lots of bass in it and I didn't want to mess with a sub because I was affraid my mix wouldn't be accurate. These do everything I need without using a sub.
