CR3 - 3" Creative Reference Multimedia Monitors
Designed to deliver the premium sound quality and performance that professionals require, Mackie CR Creative Reference Monitors are the upgrade you've been looking for to take your desktop audio experience to the next level. From video editing workstations to listening to your favorite tunes, CR Series Monitors bring your sound to life with clarity and punch thanks to the powerful 50-watt integrated amplifier, precision designed high-frequency waveguide, premium transducers and all-wood cabinet design.
The Right Monitor for Multimedia Creation and Entertainment
The right sound is everything. Whether you're creating or just listening you want hear every nuance and detail in a complete full-range experience that only studio monitors can provide. Creative Reference monitors provide studio-quality sound that is usually only found on high-priced monitors. With these monitors you get high-quality components and professional build quality that delivers rich, natural sound that is enhanced by the all-wood cabinet design.
Creative Reference monitors are professional in every way and their compact design makes them perfect for a less than roomy workspace. Whether you work at home or in a cramped studio these monitors won't get in your way. They may be small, but they sacrifice nothing in performance.
We Put You in Control
Creative Reference monitors have your needs in mind. The left/right speaker placement switch allows you to decide what side of your workspace has the volume control and the power. Sometimes your power outlet determines a particular placement of your powered speaker. Now you can decide if it's the left or right and not compromise proper stereo imaging or your personal preference.
Front-facing controls will also save you time and hassle and get you to your projects with ease. The auxiliary input allows you to plug in a smartphone, or other media device, to audition previous mixes or watch that video your friend just shared. The headphone out provides an easy way to work silently and listen to a different source. The front-panel volume knob, which will also adjust headphone volume, works as a power switch. No more fumbling around and reaching around the back to turn things on or off. The lit power ring will let you know that your Creative Reference monitors are ready to go.
Everything You Need to Get Started Right out of the Box
No one likes setting up brand new speakers only to discover they have to go out and buy additional cables before they can even get started. That's not the case with the Creative Reference monitors. Everything you need to get hooked up and working is right in the box.
Creative Reference monitors come with a 1/8" stereo RCA cable for connecting your computer's audio output directly to the monitors, a 1/8" to 1/8" cable for connecting a smartphone right into the front of the monitors and a 6' speaker-to-speaker cable to connect the left/right speakers together.
Also included are two professional-grade isolation pads that minimize unwanted bass buildup and allow you to tilt the monitors up or down for more focused listening.
