 SYDNEY, Australia - March 2002 -- After purchasing 28 more Crown amplifiers earlier this year, Sydney-based Jands Production Services now owns a grand total of 200 Macro-Tech 5002VZs collectively delivering over one million watts of power.

Jands exclusively uses the Crowns to drive its JBL and L-Acoustics line-array systems, and has taken the amplifiers out on recent tours for Ricky Martin, KISS, Bon Jovi and Australia/New Zealand's huge Big Day Out festival.

Peter Ratcliffe, JPS head of sound operations, notes, "The Crown 5002VZ provides a high output in a compact 3U package. That combined with its reliability and industry recognition make the top-of-the-line Macro-Tech our preferred amplifier of choice."

Crown International, a Harman International company, manufactures amplifiers, microphones and systems control products for professional audio markets worldwide, with corporate headquarters located in Elkhart, Indiana, USA.
