Elkhart, IN – January 2006 -- Crown International announced the addition of an HiQnet and CobraNet™ networking option for their CTs 4200a and CTs 8200 amplifier models. Larry Baker, Director of Marketing for Installed Sound at Crown made the announcement: “With the addition of full network audio transport and system control capabilities to the CTs multi-channel amplifiers, the CTs Series offers unrivaled flexibility for systems requiring networked audio for multiple zones, which are common in today’s designs.”

CTs 4200a and CTs 8200 models ordered with the networking option can connect to a 100 Mbps Ethernet network using standard Ethernet hardware (switches, Network Interface Cards, and cables) allowing them to be remotely controlled and monitored via Harman Pro System Architect software. In addition, real-time digital audio can be transported over the same Ethernet network via CobraNet™, providing a simple-to-install, single-plug solution for audio distribution, control, and monitoring.
