Mackie Introduces MR Series Studio Monitors

Mackie has debuted the MR Series, new audio monitors featuring a logarithmic waveguide that provides an ultra-wide listening sweet spot and enhanced stereo imaging.

Mackie said an Acoustic Space Control allows users to adjust the frequency response of the monitor to match the studio. The MR series works well regardless of whether the material is spoken dialog, hip-hop, rock or other audio content.

For extended bass response, Mackie announced the MRS10 Powered Studio Subwoofer. The MR series features a logarithmic waveguide that increases clarity and creates consistent sound over a wide area. Precise acoustic alignment offers balanced sound across the entire frequency spectrum.

An Acoustic Space Control and high frequency filters ensure the monitors can be easily optimized to the space. A built-in variable crossover allows users to dial in parameters or bypass the subwoofer with the included foot switch.

The MR series line-up includes a five, 6.5 and eight inch model. Prices range from $149.99 for the small model to $249.99 for the largest speaker.
