I have been researching amps recently and really want a Crown Micro-Tech 1200 but the price per watt is expensive, alot more expensive than many amps with similar specs. It seems these amps get nothing but praise but how could Crown be the only one who is a compentant amplifier manufacturer? I just got off the phone with a tech guy @ QSC and asked him what QSC amplifer competes with the Macro/Micro tech amps, he told me the RMX series does. ?? What ..the RMX series amps are considerably less dough than the Crown amps I mentioned. I asked him the same question again, but I required that the QSC model is similarly priced. He told me price has nothing to do with it...the RMX series amps are as good as the most expensive ones they sell. The more expensive amps are more expensive mostly because of the design(size, power consumption etc) , not because they are more compentant amplifers. I told him I was looking for an amp that could run a 4ohm or less load in the bridged mono configuration and he recommended that I pick up an RMX1850HD ..he said this amp was designed for these kind of loads and I would have no problems. I tried to spend more money but he insisted that I would be wasting my money. Is Crown really 'all that'?
