- All that power and it only weighs this much? Review by John
When using it, the sound is more "laid back" than what I was used to with the PB2, although more mellow I fear it might not be as "quick" sounding as the PB, but for it's intended use this shouldn't be an issue. I also noticed that the gain before feedback is greater with the XLS drive core as well.
My recommendation is: "Go for it", you get a whole lot of bag for the buck, and outstanding value, and it is less likely to break the back. However critical listeners in a home stereo environment might notice a lack of "detail" compared to a Crown DC-300 or other audiophile acclaimed amp-but, hey, that's not what this is for.
