Thanks for all the feedback.
I guess my interest in the Crest comes down to wanting a quality product. Yes, anything can go wrong with a product from any manufacturer, but some manufacturers seem to produce products that can "walk the walk" and "talk the talk". For all you Inuke fans I mean no disrespect. I've never tried that product line. Plus, when I mentioned the name Crest to my musician friend he gave it a thumbs up. I've had zero problems out of my Crown XLS1500. I just want to get around the undefeatable 20hz hpf of the Crown, which looks like that can be accomplished with the Crest 2.0.
