The Mackie MR8 Studio Monitor delivers truly professional quality and everything you need for critical monitoring at a price that's unbelievably affordable.
The MR8 Monitors are ideal for a variety of applications. Use the MR 8 to empower your mixes in the studio, or to add pro sound to your multimedia, gaming or home theatre system. You can even use them for a great-sounding home DJ rig. For any applications where high quality sound and classic good looks are required, Mackie MR 8 monitors are the perfect fit.
To ensure the best sound possible for your setup, the MR 8 Series monitors feature acoustic controls so you can tune them to fit your room. With their Active bi-amplified architecture, wide dispersion, ultra-flat frequency response and outstanding bass performance, you get superior imaging with impeccable clarity, for a truly inspirational, non-fatiguing monitoring experience.
When it comes to baffle design, shape matters; it plays a role in how sound waves travel. The Mackie MR8's baffle is precisely molded to minimize diffraction, so sound waves radiate smoothly, and are dispersed optimally. The precision waveguide is designed to ensure broad, even dispersion, and a smooth transition between highs and lows. The result is a crystal clear image of your mix, with an ultra-wide, even sweet spot. Whether you're in mix position or not, on axis or off, you'll always hear an accurate representation of your mix.
Amplifiers are the power behind a monitor's sound, but they can also color it. Unlike with passive monitors, the MR8's amplifiers are precisely matched to the monitor design. Featuring our proven Class A/B architecture, the MR Monitors amplifiers are meticulously tuned to deliver ultra-flat frequency response, so the sound remains neutral.
To compensate for room characteristics, acoustic controls allow you to adjust High Frequency and Low Frequency settings (+/-2dB). Balanced inputs allow you to get the best signal possible, but the option of unbalanced inputs mean you can connect easily to any source. And the Mackie MR8 Monitors deliver enough power to handle the toughest source material, at sound levels beyond sane people's requirements.
