These 50W speakers are really well matched and have a very nice voicing. The sound comes across smooth and clear! I definitely recommend!

                      The Mackie MR5 MK3 Active Studio Monitor is a great monitor for mixing your studio music. It has some crystal clear sound as well as some good low ends, but not too much to give you a false sense of the true sound.

                        The new monitors from Mackie at a fraction of the price! Believe it or not, but they certainly didn't take anything away from the Mackie monitors we all know and love except, cutting the price in half! What?!

                        The bass is rather heavy and that is probably my only complaint, otherwise, the top is relentless and the mids are smooth. Decent separation from instrument to instrument and very punchy. I really like the controls on the rear panel which allow you to taylor the monitors to work with your room.

                        All in all, a very good monitor at a very good price.
