Downside... Not sure, it's a fairly simple design and ART makes good and relatively cheap products. You can always say that you have more complexity, more things to go wrong and such but overall it's a pretty good unit.

Pro audio amps nowadays require very little current from the signal, just high enough voltage. So yes, the ART CleanBox 2 will suffice.

It might be wiser of you to wait for the next thing integrated into the receivers which is 4K TV's. I hope there will be allot of content at 4K soon.

The next step... Do you have a calibrated mic to be able to use with REW or some other room measurement program?

Thanks Dakos.. You've been helpful in this thread. Learned a lot. Ok so, I'm thinking yes. I'm just going to use my old receiver's preouts for now with a converter box to the amps. That should save me some money.  Also, I've thinking if I still go with the 3 Xls 2000 for my LCR. Now, I'm thinking of getting 2 more Xls 1500 to run my surrounds. Yes, I didn't mentioned that with my LCR's I ordered. I also wanted to upgrade 4 of my monitors. Especially since I listen to a lot of SACD, audio DVD, and audio BD. I got 4 of these monitors coming with my LCR..

So I talked to my long time high school friend which actually the one pointed me the direction to Crown amps. And also been a DJ (now a promoter) for over 25 years now. I asked him about converter box. And told him what I was going to do. So recommended this converter box..

He said it's very reliable and a solid product. And I really don't mind the cost especially it'll be a cleaner approach.
You question to mic and REW? Yes. I've been using this mic with REW..

And this is the EQ I use for my subs..

I don't know this converter unit but it looks on the spot. The rest of your HT looks great. I'm still waiting for Jeff to reply.

Hello again,
After waiting for a long time I decided to call Jeff from JTR. He said they don't make speaker presets so you may use any amp you like.

NICE! Thanks dakos.. Yes, I'm going with the XLS series. A lot of good feedback with these amps for mains and surrounds. I'll report back when everything is set in place
