The Crown I-Tech 6000 power amp is poised to redefine all you know about compact, reliable, high-performance power! This amp incorporates more revolutionary design innovations and breakthrough technologies per cubic inch than any amplifier in history. From the careful selection of chassis materials and construction processes, to the adoption of the latest in x-ray and photo-robotic circuit board testing, the I-Tech 6000 amplifier is painstakingly crafted to perform to the highest standards. Its front panel LCD screen provides two valuable benefits never before seen on a professional amplifier: fast and easy menu based setup and full amplifier diagnostics. The basic menu controls include bridge, Y input, recall preset, LCD contrast and input sensitivity. Advanced menus include attenuator limit, attenuator link, clip limiter, output voltage limiter, output power limiter, pink noise generator, monitor, input, max input, power-up options and more.
Crown engineers took advantage of the best-available technology and years of expertise to build a DSP section specific to I-Tech. We're talking about an amp that performs with the audio quality you have come to expect from the best outboard analog signal processing components. I-Tech's powerful DSP is also easy to set up with your custom settings and factory-designed tunings easily loaded and recalled via onboard presets. By designing the DSP specific to I-Tech, with the latest technology and through careful attention to detail, Crown engineers designed a DSP section that achieves a level of accuracy and ease of use that is simply not possible with outboard DSP processors.
And when it comes to shear power in a lightweight, compact amp ... forgetaboutit! This amp rocks.
