"Crown"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I purchased this Crown Amp for my bands monitor system. I was a bit worried about this new line made in China. The amp came and is well built, It sounds very clean , and a definite upgrade to our monitor system. We have only used on a few gigs, but so far, so good. Cant beat the price of 199.00 for zZounds my favorite music online store. The no interest pay as you play has allowed me to purchase a lot of badly needed gear over the last 4 years. Keep up the good work zzounds !

"A lot of bang for the buck"
I wanted to get an inexpensive, high-current amplifier and I needed it quickly for the Magneplanar MMGs I ordered for my birthday in April 2016. I've been driving the Maggies with the xli 800 through a vintage Rotel pre-amp and he music sounds fantastic. Even at 300 watts/ch into 4 ohms, the clipping lights would come on occasionally while playing Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd at moderately loud volumes. The cooling fans were in full mode after the song ended. Solid amp for the price. I highly recommend if you don't want to spend 1K and over for the exotics.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this mainly for the highs, been using it every week end, at first I was kind of doughtfull about this line or model (was more used to MACROS and MICROS from CROWN) as of now I haven't had any trouble with it, does not get hot, does not clip, now planning to get the 2500 for the mids ..........

"Crown XLi800 Pwr Amp"
Verified Customer 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.
