What can CR-X do for you?
Located at the bottom of the front panel is a headphone output. This is great for when you want to reference on headphones or when you don’t want to bother anyone else in the room. Plugging in headphones automagically turns off the speaker output. It really is that easy, really.
Each model is available with Bluetooth connectivity making it even easier to listen to your music when you want it. When you want to pair your device, just hold down the Running Man on the front panel, it’s ok, he won’t mind.
GET THAT RUMBLE
It’s time to celebrate. The CR Series now has a matching subwoofer, the CR8S-XBT. A 200W amplifier and high-output 8″ woofer delivers that big bottom end you’ve been looking for. Included in the box is the CRDV desktop remote which gives you a volume knob for your subwoofer and monitors right on your… desk. It’s also equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, that means you can hook this sub up to any pair of monitors and instantly have a system you can stream to.
