Additional Info

Another example of Crown doing some interesting custom work. This would be one of the earliest four channel machines that they  produced. Four x RP3 preamplifiers as compared to the usual two with an external power supply.

RP3’s were never offered as an option and this power supply looks to be completely custom.
