    The Mackie MR5 MK3 Active Studio Monitor Taking has done it for both price and performance, I can really recommend these speakers for home studio use, So if you have a small room size and you're not looking for a ton of bass out of your studio monitors these will fit the bill.

        These lovely-sounding monitors are a great value for the money! They are extremely portable and perfect for home use and smallish projects. These 50W speakers are really well matched and have a very nice voicing. The sound comes across smooth and clear! I definitely recommend!

        Comments about Mackie MR5 MK3 Active Studio Monitor:

        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.

          Comments about Mackie MR5 MK3 Active Studio Monitor:

          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.

                    These near-field active monitors are perfect for your home studio, and easy on your wallet. They have great bass response for being so small, and have multiple input options to suit your personal set-up. I recommend these to any musicians looking to start their own home studio.
