The Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor is an active, biamplified speaker that delivers a wide, deep, and incredibly detailed sound field. You can actually hear distinct tonal qualities of an instrument's low end. High frequencies and midrange are clean and articulate. A low-frequency acoustic space control makes it easy to tailor the sound to your space. Internally powered by 2 smaller versions of Mackie's FR M•1200 power amp, delivering 150W for the lows, 100W for the highs. Features a 1" alloy dome high-frequency transducer, an 8-3/4" low-frequency transducer, 1/4" and XLR inputs, overload/clip LED, and logarithmic wave guide. 34 lbs.

A decades-old pair of Mackie HR824s. Not the very first iteration, though I had some of those as well, but a slightly later revision with balanced XLR inputs that still falls under the “mk1” designation.
...that and shopped for two (2) years for nearfields go go with my Tannoy passives, my Auratones, and my Mackie HR824 "giant" mid-field monitors. I chose the Focals and got them for less than $1200.00 used, mint condition. I've spent $45-50,000 on equipment and sound treatment in my small 160 square ft. home studio. That...
I have bought my Mackies HR-824 in 1998. They were having great reviews and after comparing them to all the same priced speakers from KRK, Dynaudio, Genelec I definetly thought they were a good bang for the buck.
They came in two well packaged boxes and they are quite heavy for their size. 32.5...

I own the second revision mk2, so I cannot comment on the first one.

These monitors have a lot of bass and go pretty deep and this is in my opinion one of the main reasons that these...
