Nothing but good things to say about my crown amps. I recently sold off my inukes. Had a inuke 3000 dsp for my center (210rm) bridged and a inuke 6k dsp for my mains (215RM's)
Switched out the nuke 3k for a crown cdi 1000 running it in bridged configuration. bought it on eBay for practically pennies. It has a dead quiet fan that will not turn on at reference volume. I did swap out the fans on the inuke to battle the constant fan noise, you can't beat the fact that the crown amps will not run the fans unless it reaches its threshold (129 degrees). The dsp in the Cdi and Xti hands down blows the inukes out of the water.
The xti 4002 replaces my inuke 6k dsp same thing great amp, Ive had the fan turn on 3 times but that was playing music at 7db over reference for an extended period of time and I have some heavy gain applied down low as I run my 215RMs full range for music with no subs.
I like the lower noise floor the crown amps have over the inukes, the slight hiss is no longer auditable from my listening position like before.
I swear the crown amps have a more detailed sound to them. One could say they sound more analytical than the inukes.
Great amps can't say enough good things about them. I didn't buy xls series due to the fact that you have no parametric eq for shelf filters and or bar eq.
