I have five of the original Mackie HR-824s with an Energy subwoofer. I 
really like the system.

I don't know how Mackie changed the HR-824s when they became MK IIs.

If you're not using a sub, I think you really should go for the 824s, 
not the 624s.

I know many people love the Genelecs, too. My impression (and I have not 
listened to Genelecs much recently) was that the Mackies sounded 
smoother...but that is always subjective.
