At the core of this wireless system is the feature packed CR99 receiver, which comes in a compact table top friendly form factor that can be rackmounted via the included mounting kit.

With its Group Scan feature, the receiver can pick the best frequencies to operate with. This pairs well with the IR Sync function, which wirelessly synchronizes the system.

The Transmitter comes with variable gain in case you want to tame or boost the signal. Finally, auto-mute stops unwanted noise in case the transmitter is out of range or is turned off.
