Crown X1000 200 wpc 8 ohms power amp $99 at Guitar Center web site

Crown X1000 200 wpc 8 ohms, 300 wpc 4 ohms power amp $99 shipped at the Guitar Center web site

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Crown-X1...53-i2670626.gc

This appears to be a bit of mystery amplifier whose documentation eludes me when I search Crown's web site.

The documentation that comes with the amp confirms the specs posted on GC web site.

What comes in the box appears to be factory sealed new stock built in China. It appears to a fairly classic linear (not switchmode)design weighing about 25 pounds, including a large toroidal power transformer. It has both binding posts and Speakon output terminals and both RCA and XLR input jacks.

If there is interest I might do some bench testing.

Bench testing is always appreciated. Not sure if you saw it, but there's a thread about these amps in the diy section.

The x series would seem to be re-badged xli amps.

Edit: Some people seem to have questions about its noise floor, but that may simply be the 1 or 2 out 100 that were not well made (not sure about Crown's QA process). So testing this would clear up some questions.
