I use a lot of Crown CTs amplifiers in my installs.  However, I often need a simple two channel amp with an remote VCA volume control.  What options do I have.  Why aren't the VCA options available on the two channel CTs amps?

The CTs amplifiers are a PIP-2 amplifier and use ribbon cables and the older VCA card were PIP-1 standard and used edgecard connections. Besides that in most cases the older PIP-1 cards will not physically fit into the CTs PIP-2 compartment. You will probably have to use a third party VCA controller like RDL makes.
