From its humble beginnings in 1947, Crown International has grown to become one of the world's largest and most respected manufacturers of power amplifiers and microphones for professional audio markets.

The company's early reputation was built on a family of rugged and compact open-reel tape recorders designed to operate reliably when used by missionaries in remote, often-primitive regions of the world. After modifying and distributing several existing models (Magnecord, Recordio, Pentron and Crestwood) for the first couple of years, Crown obtained a patent in 1949 for a groundbreaking invention: the world's first tape recorder with a built-in power amplifier (15 watts).

Acquired by Harman International in March of 2000, Crown has continued to move forward, producing numerous innovative designs, including The CTs Series amplifier line for the installed sound markets, Crown's next-generation IQ System, now called IQ Network, and the I-Tech Series touring amplifiers, one of the world's most advanced professional amplifier. These products and more embody the reliability and innovativeness that have long been the manufacturer's hallmarks. Crown today continues to delight its customers with products that consistently exceed both specifications and expectations, even on the most demanding tours and installations.
