My thoughts on the Mackie CR5 BT

08.01.2016
So I received these speakers before Christmas. All in all I think they are a decent pair with a few minor issues but first I'll give the Pros.

So I have these speakers in the living room and currently hooked up to my turntable setup/ mixer etc and have been using them mostly for that. The room is just off the kitchen so having the bluetooth feature is great to sync up your phone or laptop for easy listening.

The speaker finish is very nice. Its a sturdy build with a nice wooden cabinet and reminds of the more expensive speaker cabinets like the KRK ROKIT range or Yamaha HS range. I personally really like the green finish around the woofer and tweeter and the bluetooth button also syncs in a gree light and the dial on the front turns green when the speakers are on, nice overall look.

There is a great sound from these speakers for the price, definitely has good quality from across the spectrum. I'm happy with the clarity of the mids and highs, people expecting more have to take in to consideration the price your paying.

A few more handy features is the aux cable in the front for devices to be connected for play back, the positioning switch for added user preference and the fact that the speakers inputs include rca as well as 1/4" jack inputs. For me my mixer outputs are rca so thats one of the reason I went for these speakers.

Cons.

So for me the speakers had a few little flaws, one being the bluetooth button on the front is not a solid state button so when I was playing electronic music at high volumes I noticed it would rattle from the bass, bit annoying but not enough to send back and this could also just be my pair. Also I felt the speakers was a bit heavy on the low end/ bass even when listening via phone connected and not with the bass on my mixer adjusted.

So in conclusion, I have been listening to HS8 in my sitting room for the last year so I knew buying these speakers that they wouldn't obviously be the same considering the price difference alone nevermind the size etc but for what you are paying, the CR5 BTs are a great solid build speaker that do give a good full sound for a good listening experience. I would imagine for anyone out there looking for some nice speakers for music editing in their room these would definitely ideal for that especially on a low budget. There is added Acoustic Isolations-Pads added for each speaker which is also a nice touch.

Great product

23.08.2016
This is just what I needed as a music lover and non-professional musician: a conectivity that allows me to make music and for my personal fulfillment. I see movies at the same time as I play on my synths. It's nice to know that I have a real sound of studio monitors designed for a multitude of different activities. Finally, I find that this model aesthetically appears among all brands.
