At the 2011 NAMM Show, Mackie introduced a redesign of its line of powered studio monitors – the MRmk2 Mackie Reference Monitors.
Mackie MRmk2 studio monitors feature new transducers, designed to match their respective amplification. Both models employ a 1? neodymium magnet-driven soft dome tweeter ,featuring ferro-fluid cooling to help protect against power compression during wide dynamic playback.
The 5.25? (MR5mk2) and 8? (MR8mk2) hyperbolic-curved cone woofers are designed to reduce severe cone resonances and minimize distortion.
The Class A/B amplifier section features XLR, TRS and RCA connectivity, along with user-adjustable acoustic controls for basic room correction. The cabinet is rear-ported, reducing distortion, and features a Waveguide and molded baffle, offering balance to the HF / LF content while increasing both the stereo imaging and depth of field.
The Mackie MRmk2 Series Powered Studio Monitors will be available worldwide February, 2011.
The MR5mk2 will have a U.S. MSRP of $199.99 and MR8mk2 will have a U.S. MSRP of $329.99. V
