Crown Audio DCI8600DA reviews

DCi DriveCore Install 8-Channel Power Amplifier with Dante Networked Audio (600W) is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad. I ordered 3 of these. In addition to taking over 4 months to arrive, after 1 week of use, an unused output started showing fault. Crown support was unhelpful and said the only thing I could do was send it back to be repaired - an estimated 6 weeks. There was no advanced replacement and it all had to go through the distributor. I used to have a lot of respect for Crown, but not any more, and never again. I have a need for 134 additional amp channels, and I can assure you they will not be Crown.
