zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "If your looking for a nicely priced studio monitor system, then this is something you should really take some time to give it a"
Sound: For me it was out of the the KRK's rocket8's or these and after testing out the KRK's, I chose the Mackie MR8mk2's. They sound more cleaner and have a nice bottom end to them that make your mixes just a little bit easier on you. These studio monitors really get the job done! Feature: They built a great studio monitor! Ease of Use: Very straight forward set up, just hook them up and start enjoying! Quality: The speaker is very well built! and they sound great! Value: For the price, there a steel! Can''t get any better than this Manufacturer Support: I have really never had to contact Mackie for their products have never given me any trouble whats so ever! Good products from people who care about sound! The Wow Factor: They are clean looking monitors, no fancy gadgets that just stand out but do nothing, very sleek design, a James Bond Of studio monitor if you will! Nice Finish. Overall: Til it breaks on me! Hopefully never!
Style of Music: Smooth Jazz, Motion picture sound scoring

Overall: It's truly a difficult task to choose a reference monitor. You can read article upon article from Sound On Sound, but it doesn't get you anywhere but askingmore questions. I love these monitors. They translate. The best thing to do is buy what your budget can afford and it's just trial and error. All I can say is that I am very happy. Truth is, is that you can really make a great recording with $200.00 monitors or $3000.00 monitors. Look what The Beatles had for gear. Record record and record and then listen to your stuff through iPods, boom boxes, car stereos and expensive 5.1 systems. If it translates then your doing something right.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
