Adorama is once again offering the Mackie CR5BT 5-inch Powered Studio Monitors with Bluetooth streaming (Pair) for $199.99 shipped. That’s $50 off the orignal price they still fetch from all other retailers including Amazon, Guitar Center and B&H. They are yet to drop below $250 on Amazon where they have a 4.4/5 star rating from over 500 customers.
These speakers feature a “studio-quality design”, all-wood cabinets and font panel headphone out/aux in, along with the added (and super convenient) ability to stream music directly from your smartphone, tablet, PC/laptop over Bluetooth. You’ll get a pair of acoustic pads that reduce unwanted vibrations (among other things), a 1/8-inch to stereo RCA connector for PC/Mac and the speaker-to-speaker cable. More details can be found below.
Adorama also has the Mackie 6.5″ 2-Way Powered Studio Monitors (MR6mk3) for $159.99 shipped per side (or $320 total for a pair). Whether you buy them as a pair or individually, this is the current lowest price available by a total of $80. But keep in mind, we have seen pairs go for as low as $300 total in the past.
