Paradigm Crown CDI 1000 Garden Oasis 500W Amplifier
A versatile workhorse amplifier
The Crown CDi 1000 is a versatile, powerful amplifier that can be used in just about any home, commercial or professional setting. It provides accurate, uncolored sound with solid power to drive speakers well. The amplifier is rated for 2- 4- or 8-ohm loads and 70V and 100V output, so you have plenty of configuration options. The CDi 1000 can drive speakers in a stereo arrangement, or provide bridged mono power as well.
Built-in processing gives you precise control
The CDi 1000 gives you a wide range of DSP settings for shaping your sound from the rack. It’s got six parametric filters per channel for the input EQ, plus high- and low-pass crossovers. Eight more parametric EQ filters per channel can be applied post-crossover, giving you the ability to carefully control just about any commercial speaker setup.
Adjustable time delay lets you dial in well-synced sound in distributed audio systems covering large spaces. And the CDi 1000’s 19 user presets let you save all your DSP settings for quick and convenient recall.
HiQnet for further adjustments
You can connect the CDi 1000 Series amp to your laptop using the amplifier’s USB port, providing access to optional HiQnet Band Manager or Audio Architect software which you can download. These software programs allow you to tweak your system settings right from your laptop, and save the settings for future setups. They can also give you real-world feedback on how different components can fit into your system down the road.
