I use my XLS2502 to drive a pair of KEF LS50 Metas for my computer audio system. I also have a FiiOK9 Pro ESS dac and SVS SB3000 Micro subwoofer to complete the system. I spent a lot more $$ than I ever expected, but am thrilled with the sound. The 2502 provides lots of clean power for hungry speakers like the LS50 while staying cool even during my hours-long gaming and music jamming sessions. I still haven't heard the cooling fans kick in at any time. The TRS Link/Out jacks are perfect for connecting a powered subwoofer. I tried the XTI2002 (also bought from zZounds), but it was much bigger/heavier and got quite warm during daily use. I sold it on Audiogon and put the $$ towards the 2502. If you're wondering, these Crown amps have nice resale value. I got $700 for my six-month old XTI. One last point on Crown amps, they don't come with any feet so the unit lays flat on my desktop. I bought a set of IsoAcoustic mini-pucks which work great to lift and support the amp off the desk surface. I give the 2502 and zZounds my highest recommendation!
