In Topic: Micro Tech 1200 "Supply" vs. "ODEP" LEDs?

Finally, perhaps a picture. At least of the front panels. The smudging on the lower amp, under the "Supply" text, is due to my attempt to clean up some grime. It only shows up in the flash photo.Posted Image

I've had them open for obligatory cleaning and bias check since buying them from a bar/nightclub that was updating.

I didn't cross check any part numbers but nothing struck me as looking like the units are fake/counterfeit. Serial plates/tags are intact, nothing appears unusual in this regard. Everything looks original except I'd say the power switch on one of the two was replaced at some point.

Bias potentiometers, test points, etc., were just as in the MT1200 service manual best I recall. It was a year ago or more.

I got in contact with an 'experienced' Crown tech and he informed me that he had never seen this print on any Crown amps. He also mentionned that there was no mention of a 'Supply' label in the literature. Perhaps its a counterfeit Crown amp?? Can you show us an image of the front of the amp? How about the serial number : What is inscribed on the label? Is there a date code available? This is very intriguing! Alain

I have seen and repaired very much Crown MicroTech amplifiers (started with the first grounded bridge amp, the MicroTech 1000) but i also never seen one with 'supply', it was always ODEP. If you can post a picture, i'm also very curious.
Sorry for bringing this one back from the dead, but I missed the request for pictures. Here are my two MT1200s with "Supply" instead of ODEP lights.

Well, I would post a picture but I can't seem to make it work on this forum, uniquely from any other I visit. Huh...
