Crestron is now shipping new modular utility amplifiers.

Here’s how Crestron explains in a press release the ease of installation for its AMP-1200 and AMP-2100:

No more rack shelves, terminating power connectors, or external power supplies. Crestron modular amplifiers amps are also Energy Star certified. These high-powered 100V intelligently power down when not in use and feature “fast on” power up, so not a single syllable of speech or program audio is clipped.

Crestron’s press release adds that installing the new Crestron modular amps is fast and easy:

All of the hardware needed comes in the box. Integrators do not need to research, order, or keep track of separate rack ears, shelves, spacer kits, or any other extra installation hardware. The innovative slide-lock design provides secure, professional 1U mounting without a shelf for single-amp and gang configurations. Thanks to the internal power supply with IEC connector, there is no need for awkward, unsecure external power supplies or terminating power cables in the field.

“Our new modular amplifiers deliver powerful audio performance and make it much easier to install and dress in the rack” says Paul Shiner, audio product line manager at Crestron.

“All the hassles of installing amps are gone. No more dealing with all the accessories, maintaining consistent power levels, and integrating with AV systems.”

Crestron adds that the AMP-1200 and AMP-2100 are part of its complete new line of single and two-channel modular amps, providing integrators with the power and flexibility they need at a great price. Additional models will be available.
