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.

Simply Perfect!

By Caribeh

from Deerfield Beach - FL - United States of America

Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

It's like you're in heaven listening to MANY MUSICAL NOTES that you could not hear with other speakers. So clear! So beautiful! Everything is PERFECTLY BALANCED! Impresses everyone that listens to. After many years I still LOVING IT AS IT WAS MY FIRST DAY WITH IT! Don''t be fooled by Musical Instruments Re-Sellers trying to sell you something else because after you take home or to your studio you'll see that Mackie HR824 doesn't compare to anything near it's price or less. To beat this one get ready to spend at least $8,000.00.

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.

    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 :)

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    I'll put it to you like this. I'm using these right now in a home studio. They are nothing short of mind-blowing. I could have SWORE there was a subwoofer tied in somewhere, but then I looked closely, saw the monitors were Mackie, and that was reason in itself to understand. Yes, maybe they are made in china, and I can see why one of the reviews is negative. But if it means a great recording, I don't care where it's made. Also, someone said there is such a noticable peak in the midrange. That's horse doo-doo. Maybe the electronics he heard them with were producing the peak. These are perfect. That is the word for these. Perfect.

    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.

    Perfect monitors for any studio.

    By Audiophyle

    from Charlotte, NC

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    Upon setup of the speakers, I was amazed. A few tweaks with the setings on the back of the monitor and everything was ready to go. These monitors advertise playing only what they're supposed to, ie. clean sound no distortion. I think the hit the head on the nail with the hammer with these speakers.

    Greatest Monitors

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    I own a pair of these monitors and I love them. They provide setting on the back for tuning to your room for accurate monitoring. Others might say that they have too much loose bass (almost like having a subwoofer) but I like it because I don't like my mixes to be real bassy and boomy so mix with not a lot of bass on these monitors that have a lot of bass. You can set to take some bass out of the speakers if you want. I find my mixes come out to there best because of the accurate monitoring of these speakers. They are simply great.

    Overrated!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    Alright, I just got back from trying a ton of powered monitors. The list of those tried: Alesis Monitor 1 MKIIs, Mackie 824s and 624s, Event SP8s, SP6s, TR8s, TR6s, Fostex PM1s and PM0.5s, KRK Rockit 5s, 6s and 8s and V8s, M-Audio BX8s, and a bunch of Samsons. My verdict on the 824s: they're great! EXCEPT for the fact that there's a very noticable peak in the low midrange that I could not stand. They're not worth the money! Go get the Event SP8s instead. For about the same price, I'd rate the sound quality at a good 50% better.

    The best nearfield for ANY price!

    By SoundManBarney

    from Freeville, NY

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    I've heard these in a local studio, and let me tell you - there are no better nearfield monitors for studio use in the WORLD. At any price, these are the flattest, cleanest, and most transparent monitors in their class. Genelec wishes they could produce an active monitor of this caliber at this low of a price! Forget the rest - Just get Mackie or you'll be sorry!

    Made in China!!

    By Chris Reile

    from NY

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    I purchased a set of 824's and looked at the rear connections and I was very disappointed. "MADE IN CHINA" Back in the box they went and shipped to the dealer. Greg Mackie used to say "Made in USA". I do not buy Pro audio gear made in CHINA!! Period!! Neither should you!! You can buy all the China made junk you want at your local shops. Behringer, Samson now Mackie! Too bad! They sound pretty good, but overpriced for "Made in China". Corporate integrity gave way to greed, and treason to the American craftsmen who helped build Mackie into what it is. Is your job next?

    this IS the real Deal, i have owned a pair since 1999, and can say, i have neevr had a problem with them, I use them 50 - 70 hours a week, they sound as good now in july 2004 as they did in June 1999. i also have thier D8b and a pair of HDR24/96's well worth the extra $ if you're in the business. the mixes translate everywere quite well. what i mixed, is what it is.

    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.

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    Been using these in my home studio for about the past couple of months. They replaced a pair of well used Yamaha ns10m.. The sound pumping from these things were just short of astonishing! Makes my previous recordings sound horrible now since I notice so much more with the Mackies. The only negatives I can think of is the retail price. They costs way more than the Yamahas but a whole lot less then Genelecs. If you compare the price, I think they sound just as good as the Genelecs.

    Unreal

    By J. Diddy

    from Atlanta

    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. :-)

    These monitors revealed punch and low end to all of my music collection and recordings. The highs are extremely crisp and the lows thump. Stereo imaging was fantastic. I recommend these over all monitors in this price range. Think Mackie quality.

    Amazing!!

    By recklund

    from Juneau, AK

    Comments about Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor:

    Articulate highs that are not harsh, sweet midrange and deep (I mean DEEEEP) but controlled lows. The stereo imaging is simply awesome. My mixes have improved drastically since using these monitors.I can finally trust my mixes to translate well to any other system with the accurate frequency response. I was going to skimp and get the Behringer 2031's but I am SO glad I spent the extra $$ and got these. I don't feel bad about shelling out the dough for these - they are everything I expected and more. Sweet sounding monitor - I want another pair for my home theatre!!
