"Crown XLi800 Pwr Amp"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Having been a road engineer & house engineer at some of NY's best known venues, I can say without hesitation that even though I has somewhat skeptical
of the new gen. Cjinese-manufactured Crowns, the XLi series has performed remarkably well.
Excellent reproduction, major output (into 8ohm Polk speakers, cool running and all the sonic & functional protection needed.
Trying to hunt down a 60hz hum, I contacted Crown support. The tech spent 10 minutes talking to me. It was traced down to an old wiring system with a "sketchie" ground. Grounding the Crown to the pre solved the problem.
