Crutchfield Corporation Inks Deal to Carry Clare Controls amp.1640

Prominent catalog/internet audio electronics retailer cites multi-room amplifier's performance, form factor.

SARASOTA FL, August 25, 2014 - Clare Controls announced today that it recently signed a distribution agreement with Crutchfield Corporation for the noted electronics retailer to carry its amp.1640 distribution amplifier.


Thanks to the product information that the company has offered via its catalog and, subsequently, via the internet, Crutchfield has become a respected "go-to" resource for both amateur and professional audio enthusiasts. Clare's amp.1640 gives the company an offering with distinct appeal to custom AV installers, providing 16 channels (8 zones) of great-sounding Class D audio in a cool-running chassis that occupies only a single rack unit.

In their product description, Crutchfield lauds the amp.1640's Class D design, both for its energy efficiency and for its exceptional sound. The latter is a product of cutting edge technology created by ICEpower, a Bang & Olufsen subsidiary often recognized as a leader in bringing the highest fidelity to Class D amplifiers.

"With its 40 years experience, Crutchfield has the ability to put our amplifier in front of an ideal audience, many of whom we would otherwise be unlikely to reach," noted Clare President Brett Price. "Accordingly, we have every reason to believe the relationship with Crutchfield will be highly productive."
