These new CR3 and CR4 monitors come with RCA and quarter-inch inputs along with a headphone output and AUX (mini) input on the front panel of one of the speakers to connect smartphones or other devices. There's also a conveniently located volume control knob with a green LED ring that lets you known they are on. They also come with isolation pads that can angle the speakers towards the users and stop vibration from the surface. These speakers are perfect for desktop or small workstation use, especially when the user wants a small set of speakers to get accurate playback of the original source material. The CR3 will go for only $129 per pair, while the CR4 will clock in at only $199 per pair. Check out the video above and the full press release with Mackie website links below.
