      Provides the power, performance, and clarity you need to create world-class mixes.

      As a professional studio monitoring solution, MRmk2s are extremely balanced, outputting a high-frequency clarity and midrange definition you can stake your reputation on. They out-power any competitively priced monitor and deliver deeper, more accurate bass than anything in their class. Perfect for professional and home studios, as well as home theaters and multimedia applications, MRmk2 monitors deliver a rich sonic experience and the power, performance and clarity you need to create world-class mixes.

      All-new professional transducers
      MRmk2 Series studio monitors feature all-new professional transducers specifically designed to meet the demands of the modern project studio. The neodymium magnet-driven silk dome tweeter is both smooth and accurate, featuring ferro-fluid cooling to help protect against power compression during wide dynamic playback. The hyperbolic curved cone woofer, inverted dust cap, and long voice coil windings work in tandem to deliver smooth, consistent output with controlled low frequency performance. When paired with Mackie’s precision-tuned amplifiers, MRmk2 monitors provide spot-on input-to-output tuning that you can take to the bank.

      Precision power amplifiers
      The dual precision Class A/B amplifiers have been re-voiced to specifically match their new driver components, ensuring that your sound is minimally impacted by distortion, artifacts or changes in frequency response often imparted by working at a variety of volume levels. MRmk2 Series monitors are a 2-way design that offers up to 150 watts of total system power. Delivering more power than anything in their class, MRmk2 studio monitors provide exceedingly smooth output, from ultra-low bass frequencies to precise midrange and sparkling highs.

      Custom waveguide & baffle
      An optimally-sized custom waveguide is designed to maximize sonic clarity and dispersion, while also serving to minimize diffractions. This approach allows for seamless transition of HF and LF content along with a 3-dimensional sense of space. MRmk2 monitors also feature a molded baffle to impart superior imaging and depth. Your monitors need to be as accurate as they are great-sounding, and the MRmk2 design philosophy gives you exactly that.

      Top-notch cabinet design
      Everything even down to the cabinet design of MRmk2s are handled with the utmost attention to detail. The sleek-looking MRmk2 cabinets feature custom-tuned rear ports, allowing for the controlled passage of air in and out. The cabinets are constructed of solid MDF, so there’s no unwanted distortion from air movement or vibrations. Transducers are never restricted by pressure, and the cabinets resonate low for deep, balanced bass.

          Comments about Mackie MR8mk2 2-Way Reference Monitor:

          These monitors far exceeded my expectations! The frequency response is very accurate and does not output a flattering "colorized sound," that inevitably misleads you in the mix process. However, keep in mind that "garbage in, results in garbage out." These monitors are well built, however I would've like the tweeter to have been a little more durable. The silk-designed tweeter has the potential of being accidently depressed, causing permanent damage. So, be careful when unpacking and handling them. Nonetheless, the tweeter delivers the high end well without an excessive ear-fatiguing ring. The 5 inch woofer packs a punch for it's size, yet delivering an accurate representation of the low end. Adjustment for your high/low sounds can be made by referencing charts and knobs on the rear of each monitor which is a nice feature. For producers and engineers of bass-heavy genres, you might want to consider implementing a sub-woofer for playback purposes. However, not having one won't be a deal breaker, but yet a "Bang For Your Buck!"

          Comments about Mackie MR8mk2 2-Way Reference Monitor:

          I am getting wonderful sound from these speakers. Incredibly accurate - set them up at the proper height and distance in a good room and you have yourself professional-quality monitors. The high cut and low cut switches make it easier to get a good mix as well, as you know whether you are higher or lower than baseline at those freq's. The lows are fat and warm without being nasty (and they go all the way down to 40Hz) and the highs are crisp and refreshing like a fountain Sierra Mist without being harsh on the ears. Again, there are high and low cut/boost switches so you can control what sound you are getting.

          It takes an hour to get these set up and play around with settings and know what settings your gonna mix with. I wanted the HR-824's but I don't have that kind of money (I mostly record my own stuff). I honestly don't see how they could be better to the point where it would be worth spending that much more. Get em if you dont want to spend a fortune.

          (another thing: these things get LOUD)

            These Monitors do everything they(Musicians Friend and Mackie)said they can do. I mix and record in a treated studio/ mixing room. Moving up from 5" M-Audio's to these?....a well made investment. If your serious about hearing solid, clear audio for recording, mixing or just plain enoying music.....these Mr8's are where its at. This Company will serve you right as well!

            Worth every penny

            Comments about Mackie MR8mk2 2-Way Reference Monitor:

            I've had these for a few months now, and I can safely say they are worth every penny. I've been a firm believer in "you get what you pay for," and this is no exception. Clarity is phenominal. In my own research I've heard the MR5mk2's color the sound with a bit of extra bass, so I went with the MR8mk2s. The larger cone replicates lower frequencies well. My mixes sound consistant through theses spearkers, my car speakers, dinky little headphones at work, etc. This wasn't the case with my last monitors, which was a crap shoot. If you want speakers with style, grab some KRKs. If you want a product where the name speaks for itself, and your mixes sound bigger than life, get these.

            PS: Don't forget to mix at lower volumes kiddies. If you mix at high volume, it'll only sound that good at that decible level and above. Mix low, and when you're finished, then crank them up for all the world (and neighbors) to enjoy!
            Between the inputs, and switches, you can reliably hook up these puppies and adjust them to your room.
            Very sturdy.
            There will always be a better product, but value for money, this is where the line is drawn.

            Fresh sound

            By FJ

            Comments about Mackie MR8mk2 2-Way Reference Monitor:

            Kudos for MF for being the first to have it in stock, I was waiting patiently.Just started using this new model, the sound is deep and open, with a wide sweet spot, much better than my old digital Roland's, simply fantastic, I'm also glad not to be another KRK lemming!. No complaints so far, but I haven't mixed on them yet, that explains the my score of 4, but I did run a few listening sessions and I'm very pleased with the sound. It's always nice to hear things you never knew existed in music you've listened to for years.
