Targetting high-performance and energy efficiency, Crown Audio has introduced the ComTech DriveCore series of amplifiers.

ComTech DriveCore amplifiers‘The ComTech DriveCore introduction is destructive in the sense that it obsoletes everything that has come before it. Today’s introduction is a watershed event in amplifier design and manufacturing in every aspect from performance, weight, heat generation, and efficiency,’ says Marc Kellom, director of marketing for Crown. As part of Harman International, Crown has more research and development at its disposal than all of its competitors combined. This introduction is a clear demonstration of our determination to out innovate and outperform the competition while providing our customer base with unmatched value.’

The line – consisting of four models offering up to eight channels and 150W/channel in a 1U-high chassis – is intended for fixed installation environments, from video conferencing in boardrooms to luxury suites in sports stadia. It features Integrated DriveCore technology chip, claiming greater than 90 per cent efficiency and a signal-to-noise ratio of 110dB. DriveCore also has patented feedback and protection circuits integrated into the silicon for fast and accurate response.

The amplifiers feature flexible input routing and universal power supply and conform to Harman Professional’s Green Edge environmental initiative, and are convection-cooled. Crown’s circuit components are also claimed to use fewer resources in manufacturing, and contribute to weight reduction that results in less energy consumption.
