As the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim approaches, we’re offering Mix readers exclusive sneak peaks of some of the new products debuting at the show.

Mackie will announce a complete redesign of its best-selling line of ultraaffordable powered studio monitors: the MRmk2 Reference Monitors. Both the 5.25-inch woofer MR5mk2 ($199/pair, MSRP) and 8-inch MR8mk2 ($329/pair) are powered two-way designs with a 1-inch soft-dome neodymium tweeter on a wide-dispersion waveguide. Inside the rear-ported cabinets is a Class-A/B amplifier section with XLR, TRS and RCA inputs, and user-adjustable controls for acoustical correction. The enclosure’s optimally sized custom waveguide and molded baffle offers balance to the HF/LF content while increasing both the stereo imaging and depth of field.

The monitors are slated to begin shipping worldwide in February. Visit Mackie during NAMM in its massive new showroom upstairs in Demo Room 209A/B from January 13 to 16, 2011.
