Mackie Re-Sets The Bar With Their HRmk2 Studio Monitors [ NAB 2007 ]

United States
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (April 16, 2007) — Mackie today again reset the price-performance standard in active studio monitors with the introduction of the HRmk2 high-resolution studio monitor series. The new THX-approved HR824mk2 and HR624mk2 monitors replace their predecessors, the HR824 and HR624, and boast a wide range of technological breakthroughs to meet the demands of the modern studio.

“While others have spent years copying the industry-standard HR824, we reset the bar with the HRmk2s. Engineered specifically for use with High Definition audio, they produce ultra-accurate—and incredibly natural—sound,” said James Woodburn, Mackie recording product manager. “Through improved tuning, frequency response and depth of field, the Mackie HRmk2s turn your studio’s sweet spot into a full-on sweet zone,” continued Woodburn.

Crafted from a single piece of cast aluminum, the HRmk2’s new Zero Edge Baffle™ minimizes diffraction for a crystal clear mix image, while its Optimized Waveguide delivers wide, even dispersion as well as full, articulate mids. Coupled with the passive radiator, the new baffle design also ensures tight, articulate bass extension. And with a real wood enclosure, the HRmk2s perform with maximum detail, clarity and warmth.

The HR624mk2 features a 6.7-inch low distortion LF transducer (woofer) and a 1-inch titanium dome tweeter. The HR824mk2 has a 8.75-inch low distortion LF woofer and a 1-inch titanium dome tweeter. They will be available late April 2007 and have a U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $779.99 for the HR824mk2 and $579.99 for the HR624mk2. Please see us at booth SL9208 in Las Vegas for NAB.
