Incredible dynamics and transparency. Holds the speakers in an iron grip and plays rock solid and glass clear. Massive effect in this already legendary final step. Uses it for hifi, which requires switching off (or switching off) the fan - the step is then completely silent and becomes no more than a little hot. About InterM 500
plus turned upside down on the hifi concepts for me, this Crown does it to an even greater extent. Is Crowe better than my previous high-end Parasound Halo A21 ...? I would say yes overall, even if you ignore the price difference. Crown lacks some of the warmth Parasound has, but compensates with a fantastic dynamism and impact, without for that matter sounding harsh or cold. A very good step. Price / performance = 6/5!
