Mackie has announced a complete refresh of its MR Series powered studio monitors.

Designed for home studios, content creators and multimedia, the MR Series is available in the 5-inch MR524, 6.5-inch MR624, and the 8-inch MR824 plus the 10-inch MRS10 companion powered subwoofer.

The MR Series features a logarithmic waveguide which provides an ultra-wide listening sweet spot and enhanced stereo imaging for higher fidelity and consistent sound over a wide listening area.

"With MR, we saw an opportunity to really take advantage of some of our best studio monitor technology," remarked Mackie product manager Jon Rundle. "By borrowing design elements from our flagship HR and XR Series, we can offer incredible fidelity and accuracy at prices that fit into even more conservative budgets."

Equipped with versatile Acoustic Space Control and HF filters, MR monitors can be easily optimised to their environment to ensure a flat response. There are three different acoustic space settings that adjust for monitor placements close to walls, in corners, etc. Plus, the high-frequency EQ control allows for further adjustment to ensure an accurate room response. Included is an acoustic isolation pad that decouples the monitor from the desk or stand for increased performance and accuracy.

"With more and more people turning their bedrooms and garages into studios, it is important to have monitors that can adapt," Rundle concluded. "When you dial in your monitors with the Acoustic Space Control, you can mix with confidence knowing that there won't be any deceiving boosts or cuts across the frequency spectrum."

Sold individually, the US MSRP pricing is $209.99 for the MR524, $279.99 for the MR624, $349.99 for the MR824, and $559.99 for the MRS10.
