"MR8mk2 vs the KRK Rokit 8"

Mackie MR8mk2Published on 01/09/13 at 20:45
The Mackie MR8mk2 is a 2 way reference monitor that has very professional transducers and great power amplifiers. You can crank this monitor up and not have to worry about it distorting the sound at all. They have clean highs and solid mids with warm low end sounds. I have used the MR8mk2 over a dozen times and I still think it is one of the best set of monitors that you can get for the money.

SOUNDS

The low frequencies are my favorite about them, no matter what style of music you are working with or listening to with them the low end is thick and warm, mainly because of the power amplifiers that these Mackie monitors have in them. The strange thing is that I have used other Mackie......

SOUNDS

The low frequencies are my favorite about them, no matter what style of music you are working with or listening to with them the low end is thick and warm, mainly because of the power amplifiers that these Mackie monitors have in them. The strange thing is that I have used other Mackie monitors in the past that clam to have the exact same style of amplifiers in them (dual precision), but they do not sound anywhere as good as the MR8mk2’s do.

OVERALL OPINION

I was using these at my home studio which is in a bigger room without just a little bit of acoustic treatments. They instantly upgraded my whole sound. Right before I had these I was using a pair of Alesis monitors that I thought where pretty good until I purchased these from Mackie. It was an instant upgrade.
Out of most of the monitors that I have heard in this price range, these could be the best ones. I have been through so many monitors from home to the studio and for this price range the only other ones that I would suggest are the KRK Rokit’s just because they have a very similar sound but these have cleaner highs than the KRK Rokit’s do. With the sound being clean and warm you just cannot go wrong with getting these monitors. If you are looking to spend in the 500 dollar range for a pair of monitors check these out or the KRK Rokits if you just want to focus more on bass.

" Very satisfied"

I chose these speakers after listening comparison between 5 'and 6' and 8 'in Yamaha, Mackie, KRK, Prodipe, M-Audio and even Adam and Focal ... I wanted to replace my Yam HS50M just too low and in which the sound deteriorates at high volume by a model with 8 HP, reasonably priced and above all with her, even if it is not a neutral foolproof, that I like and match what I like in a register rather hear pop, rock, funk. I hesitated with Yam HS80M and preferred the Mackies warmer, less analytical, more comfortable. I also use them for home studio recording rock bands and I kept the yam HS50 in 2nd listening: when the mix sounds on both models is that the truth is not far off ...

Power rating, no complaints, never thoroughly tested, it already sending strong mid-volume (fully soundproofed room of 5x4m)

SOUNDS

Pregnant flattering a hair on low span far to the rear. Very good dynamic (low-battery listen to Jamiroquai ...), stereo picture far superior to my HS50, the sound is clear and precise at both low and high volume.

OVERALL OPINION

Already very pleased with these speakers, I attack shortly in a more accurate acoustic treatment of home studio (although already soundproofed walls, floor and ceiling) for optimal listening, as the catch.

The quality / price seems good probably one of the best in its class.

For the same budget and the same conditions of use (home studio musician, acoustically treated room imperfectly) I redid the same choice, without hesitation, it is certainly beyond for professionals in the profession.

Yes, well ... The clarity of the spectrum is largely accurate enough for the price.

OVERALL OPINION

-A little over 6 months of use after testing. Nice mix made, overall, not bad.
-Pros: power, clarity, quality construction.

" Exellent value for money + +"

I wanted to buy these monitors to replace my pair of Samson Rubicon R8A for (pre) mixing at home, Home Studio 25M2
R 8a me breaking my head, too aggressive and not descended enough despite the 8-inch woofer ....
a correction to alleviate the serious would have been welcome (depending on your room)

SOUNDS

I mix on monitors in the studio much more upscale then I have good references for comparison.

The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?

Yes it is rather neutral in all I see still a general lack of brightness in the treble and upper midrange slightly behind
otherwise it's pretty good.

The dynamics are respected?

The dynamics are good

The stereo image is good?......

The dynamics are good

The stereo image is good?

Like really well (still not as good as my old monitor with the ribbon tweeter)

The sound is clear and precise on the spectrum?

As mentioned above a slight loss at the top but not be corrected in any way they are very balanced

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?
Day

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes a bunch of models more than cheap ones. (Yamaha, RKR, Dynaudio, Adam, K & H)

What is so special that you like most and least?
The well-balanced sound of these monitors, the least I'm not sure at this rate, it's on if you can put 2x more expensive you will probably (slightly) better
to say that my need to mix at home and then go into the studio to finish on most products HDG is perfect, I have not had time to mix with but I think not too wrong (j edit the notice in a while)

How would you rate the quality / price

really excellent

With experience, you do again this choice?

With this budget I think that there is no picture this time you have a very good pair of monitors that let you "work" in good condition, very well balanced that you do not plant your mixes (well little) let alone Once you know their little weaknesses.
