The Crown ComTech DriveCore Series of amplifiers includes the recently launched CT475, CT875, CT4150 and CT8150 models.
The audio amplifiers find application in boardrooms, video and teleconferencing, VIP suites in stadiums and arenas as well as upscale restaurants and retail outlets among others.
The DriveCore Technology
DriveCore circuitry is based on breakthroughs by Crown's own Gerald Stanley with five patents applying to the advanced feedback, modulation and output stage technologies.
DriveCore's front-end drive circuits leverage the inherent efficiency of Class D output stages while also maintaining superb sonic characteristics.
The end result is an ultra-efficient one-piece audio amplifier circuit that exhibits the excellent audio quality of a highly evolved Class AB design.
