Product Review (submitted on May 13, 2013):
I bought the 200 watt at 8 ohms XLI800 first and loved it. I talked it up to my friend who wanted to buy it from me thinking that I wouldn't sell it to him but I did. Turned around and bought the next size bigger the XLI1500 330 watt per channel at 8 ohms. It claims to push most passive subwoofers. On the XLI800, I could faintly hear the cooling fan, but could also hear people whisper while using on my TV. Also heard new sounds on TV mode that I've never heard before using a 100 watt per channel Carver amp. What a difference in the two amps, WOW! Now I have the XLI1500 and I hear a faint hum on the left channel and don't hear any fan at a distance, but I do hear it working. I'm thinking that it is a RCA cable giving me trouble. These amps and the realistic sound they reproduce are amazing and technology has really grow for Crown in this area. If you want the best sounding stereo money can buy today (or as close to it as possible) buy these amps. I really don't think you will be disappointed! Bob...
