Other New Products From Mackie:

In addition to the release of the Mackie VLZ4 Mixers, they’ve also just released a new series of studio monitors: MR mk3 Series Studio Monitors. Ranging from 5.25″ to 8″, in addition to the MR10Smk3 sub, these monitors may be just what was missing from your home studio. Music production often calls for a well treated room and a flat frequency response from your audio source. Mackie hit pretty close to the frequency response and delivered it in an affordable package.
