    Question about mackie hr824's

    This may seem a silly question, but I've searched all over the macke site and cannot seem to confirm this:
    With the hr624's they have a selectable voltage between 120 and 240V,
    It doesn't seem like the 824's do have this. Can anyone confirm this?

    The main reason is I'd like to get a pair but local prices are exorbitant to say the least.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Hi, I own a pair of Mackie HR 824's.

    They do NOT have the voltage switch on them.

    However, they are a couple of years old. They may
    have made some changes in that time...

    They are fabulous speakers for sequencing/mixing/mastering.

    You will be very happy with 624 or 824 imho..

    I can confirm about the switch. I own 824s since 2001 and have not seen this swtich.
    Really like the sound though.

    Thanks all.

    *sigh*

    Think I'll be going the 624's or event's then.

    The difference between getting the mackie's from the US with 120V to getting them in Australia with 240V is about $800-$1000US.

    Which obviously is enough money that I cannot justify the extra. At least the 624's by the look of it I can import from anywhere without that much difficulty.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Lets just see what I can get in/to the country then.

    I suppose the genelec 8030's are something to look at too.

    What about a voltage convertor? It couldn't cost that much.

    No they don't cost that much, i've always been a little bit wary of using anything to modify away from what something is rated to do. I suppose its just easier to blame the vendor is all.

    Oh well, am about to go out and look at genelec's (8030's) and this afternoon will check out a couple more places for hr 824's.

    I wish I could find some reviews I must say on the 8030's with them being new-ish there doesn't seem to be much yet.
