WOODINVILLE, WASH.—Mackie has debuted the Creative Reference Multimedia Monitor Series, delivering the studio-quality design, sound and performance in compact designs.
The series includes two models, the CR3 and CR4, with 3-inch or 4-inch woofers that pump out an impressive amount of deep, punchy low end and 3/4-inch silk-dome tweeters that deliver smooth, articulate highs. The monitors also feature a curved high-frequency waveguide for wide, even dispersion of sound and an immersive stereo image. In addition, all-wood cabinets and custom-tuned rear ports provide a natural warmth to the sound.
A left/right speaker placement switch allows users to locate the volume control on the left or right of their workstation. The front panel includes a on/off/volume knob with a lit power indication ring that will also control the volume of headphones, which can be plugged directly into the front of the monitors. The monitors also feature a front-panel aux input for simple connection of a media device.
Creative Reference monitors come with all the required connecting cables, as well as a pair of acoustic isolation pads included.
The CR3 and CR4 monitors will be available worldwide August, 2014.
