    5″ Multimedia Monitor with Bluetooth® (Pair) Compact and portable at 15 lb, this pair of CR5BT Multimedia Monitors from Mackie provides audio playback in home and studio environments. As such, they are useful for mixing music or post-production sound, and they boast Bluetooth capability to boot. The pair consists of one passive un-powered monitor and one Class AB amplifier-powered monitor that you can connect with an included stereo cable. For the low-end, these speakers utilize 5" polypropylene-coated woofers and a rear port tube, while the highs are handled by 0.75" silk dome tweeters; all of this ensures a frequency response of 60 to 20,000 Hz with a maximum SPL of 103 dB. A switch allows you to select whether the powered speaker will function as the left or right monitor. This is particularly helpful when you must position the speakers near power outlets, or when you have to decide whether you'd rather have your front-panel volume knob situated on your left or right. Also adorning the monitor's front are an LED (indicating whether or not your monitors are on at any given time) and a dedicated headphone output (for private listening; please note that plugging your headphones in will silence the monitors themselves). You can connect mobile devices and other devices directly to the monitors via 1/8", 1/4" or RCA inputs—but then again, feel free to skip all that and just go with Bluetooth. The monitors also come with isolation pads for reducing the transmission of structural vibrations. RCA, 1/8", and 1/4" TRS balanced and unbalanced inputs Supports Bluetooth and stereo headphones Lightweight at 15 lb Switchable L/R configuration for convenience On-board volume knob Wood cabinet Multiple necessary cables included

  • The Mackie HR824mk2 active studio monitors manage to improve on the widely-used originals. New features, such as a solid aluminum Zero Edge baffle and optimized waveguide help to give the HR824mk2 even more accurate, natural sound reproduction. Designed with high-definition audio in mind, this monitor provides exeptional clarity for surround 5.1 and 7.1 applications, and an Acoustic Space Control function allows it to be adapted to any room and still provide maximum accuracy. Low-frequency roll-off and high-frequency shelf functions are also included on the HR824mk2.<br><br>Mackie HR824mk2 Active Monitor at a Glance:<br>-New baffle design<br>-Acoustic Space Control<br>-Ample wattage, time correction<br><br>New baffle design<br>The HR824mk2 features a Zero Edge baffle, which is constructed from a solid piece of aluminum. The new baffle design minimizes diffraction and helps provide a clear sonic image, as well as tight bass response. An optimized waveguide disperses sound evenly over a wide field, as well as providing robust mids. These improvements to frequency response and depth of field make the HR monitors sound better than ever.<br><br>Acoustic Space Control<br>An integrated Acoustic Space Control feature makes these monitors ideal for locations (such as video post suites and home/project studios) where available space is limited. This feature gives you full space, half-space, and quarter space settings, which adjusts the bass response when they're away from walls, against walls, or set up in corners. Low frequency roll-off and high frequency shelf functions are also switchable on the back panel.<br><br>Ample wattage, time correction<br>

  • When it comes to monitoring, accuracy is everything. That's what makes the Mackie XR824 such an excellent studio monitor. Its 8" Kevlar woofer recovers from transients with incredible speed, resulting in exceptionally accurate low-end response. High and low frequencies are in perfect acoustic alignment, by virtue of the XR824's logarithmic waveguide, giving rise to excellent clarity and articulation. Experience extended low frequencies, by means of this monitor's ELP Bass Reflex System. Built-in room optimization adapts to suit any mixing environment, and the included foam isolation pad reduces unwanted vibrations. The Mackie XR824 8" studio monitor features an eye-catching black woodgrain finish.<br><br>When Mackie designed the XR824, accuracy was priority number one. Its 8" Kevlar woofer is extremely rigid, so it maintains its shape even when it's being pushed hard. This results in fast recovery from transients, which translates into remarkably accurate low-end response. The XR824's logarithmic waveguide matches its high-frequency dispersion pattern to the woofer's, giving rise to seamless midrange-to-bass transition. This monitor's recessed tweeter is on the same axis as its woofer, providing perfect acoustic alignment of high and low frequencies. The result is exceptional clarity and articulation. The XR824's ELP Bass Reflex System provides extended low-frequency response, all the way down to 36Hz.<br><br>No room is perfect, and for those of us who work out of a bedroom studio, this is a brutal reality. The Mackie XR824's three Acoustic Space filters adapt the monitor to your mixing environment, providing you with a flat frequency response no matter where you are. The HF filter compensates for the brightness or dullness of your room. The LF filter rolls off your low end — perfect for simulating smaller speakers for reference.<br><br>

  • Active Monitor with 6.7" LF Driver, 1" Dome Tweeter, Acoustic Space Control, LF Roll-off, HF Shelf (each)<br><br>Mackie's HR series of active two-way studio monitors is one of the company's big success stories, as these speakers are in use everywhere from home studios to professional facilities. Now the company have finally launched a pair of successors, in the form of the HR824 Mk2 and the HR624 Mk2. The names may not show a lot of imagination, but one look at the new speakers shows that a lot has changed on the outside, and there have been a few changes on the inside too.Apparently EAW's design team, best known for their high-end live sound systems, had more than a passing hand in the redesign (like Mackie, they are part of the Loud Technologies group of companies). Manufacturing is carried out in the Far East, as it is for much of the Mackie product line these days.<br><br>As both the HR824 Mk2 and HR624 Mk2 models are quite similar, other than in woofer size, power and frequency specifications, I decided to focus on the larger HR824 Mk2, but I've also discussed the HR624 Mk2 in a box elswhere in this article.<br><br>The first thing I noticed is that, instead of the usual utilitarian black-ash veneer, the dense MDF cabinets have a new, shiny, gloss-black 'piano' finish. Also, though monitors of this type produce the widest sweet spot when standing upright, Mackie have made their logo rotatable, so anyone who insists on sideways mounting can at least have the logo the right way up! Another obvious change is the plain rectangular baffle, which has been replaced by a bespoke aluminium moulding with a curved front and radiused corners, but this isn't simply a cosmetic tweak — those rounded edges reduce diffraction, and the tweeter waveguide is moulded into the baffle so that the flare is completely smooth. A symmetrical driver layout means that there is no need for left- and right-handed models.
