    I have the Mackies and they sound great, but I've never heard the KRK's so I can't compare them.

    I heard both. All I can say it's still depend of your personal taste, and what type of music you want to listen to and how loud you want them.

    I tend to prefer the Mackie one just because they sound more equally at low and high volume, while the KRKs loose some roundness at higher volume. But the Mackie one need some Eq notches here and there, while the KRK don't really need.

    Silly ears...

    Also in the market, and also narrowed down to KRK and Mackies. I can't make a final decision. At lower (home) volumes they are comparable, but when they are cranked up (in demo studio), IMO the Mackies have the edge. Had pretty much decided on KRK's until I compared them cranked up.

    Do you think this holds across the two entire lines, for instance comparing krk8s and mr8s?

    Im deciding between those two at the moment. House parties at my place need a little more power.
