Powering this remarkable amplifier is the pioneeringtechnology of DriveCore, which seamlessly integrates the amplifier drive stageinto the power output stage fusing everything into a chip the size of a dime.The foundational DriveCore circuitry is based on breakthroughs by Crown's ownGerald Stanley with five patents applying to the advanced feedback, modulationand output stage technologies. DriveCore's front-end drive circuits leveragethe inherent efficiency of Class D output stages while also maintaining superbsonic characteristics. The end result is an ultra-efficient one-piece audioamplifier circuit that exhibits the exemplary audio quality of a highly evolvedClass ABdesign. More information about DriveCore.
Energy efficiency is an integral part of ComTech DriveCore™.This series debuts a new four-stage universal power supply that adapts tooperating demands to assure peak efficiency. Normal, Green, Sleep, and Deep Sleep modescombine to provide everything from full voltage to the supply rails for instantresponse to limiting power consumption, to less than 1W when not in use. And,because it's over 90% efficient in the DriveCore™ stage, no fan is required,allowing for ultra-quiet operation.
