A Legend Is Reborn As Crown Macro-Tech-i Makes U.S. Debut At InfoComm 2008 In Las Vegas;
Unrivalled Pedigree Coupled With Awesome Raw Power Makes The New Crown Macro-Tech-I The Uncontested Heir For Analog Supremacy!
Building upon 20 years of innovation and market success, Crown Audio today introduced the new Macro-Tech-i family of analog amplifiers it expects will emulate the reliability, sonic performance and value of the now-legendary Macro-Tech Series. The original Crown Macro-Tech Series earned a reputation as the most reliable, best sounding analog power amplifier line money could buy and now, by incorporating Crownâ€™s advanced, patented Class-I circuitry, the new Macro-Tech-i delivers significantly greater power while reducing the weight by more than half!
Comprised of three models â€“ the MA-5000i, MA-9000i and MA12000i â€“ the Macro-Tech-i Series is equipped with comprehensive status, fault, and load monitoring via standard Ethernet networking and Harman Proâ€™s HiQnetâ„¢ and System Architectâ„¢ software. A universal power-factor corrected power supply ensures that the new models can be used literally anywhere in the world, delivering full rated power regardless of where touring schedules may lead.
â€œNo amplifier manufacturer is as dedicated to its customers as Crown Audio is committed to the pro audio community: we listen attentively to audio professionals and work very hard to build the right products to address their needs,â€? noted Brian Divine, Crown Audio Market Director for Touring Sound and Engineered Sound. â€œThis commitment is manifested in todayâ€™s introduction of the new Macro-Tech-i family that was conceived and refined with the close cooperation of our user group. As a result, the new Macro-Tech-i Series boasts rugged build quality, rock-solid reliability and unmatched sonic performance.â€?
As is the case with all Crown amplifiers, the Macro-Tech-i Series is backed by the manufacturerâ€™s industry-exclusive Three-Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty.
