I've never seen it below $649 but I suppose I don't see everything-- it started at $849 when it came out 18 mos ago.

Don't know precisely what "it can't handle lower impedance" means but it does...

Yeah, I hear you-- but I doubt there's much difference to hear honestly, so long as neither are being over driven.

I'm just more concerned with reliability over the long haul. I'm simply not...

Can you explain how?

A Crown tech confirmed with me today that the guts between the two are identical. The x4000 was simply

I'll respectfully disagree.

I find the best-performing, most versatile, methodology to be to stream to an apple tv.

Of course- just as a $100K Corvette is much less expensive than many other 2-$300K sports cars. My point was/is that it's not nearly as inexpensive as an $700 AVR and certainly not after you add...

I don't disagree, lol, as I own it. But it is $1600+ (if you're lucky) which is nowhere near "cheap" for most not playing in the NFL or rapping.

The $1500 AVR options out there are immensely worthy of bang for buck high praise. Ditto for the $1000 units.

It's alright. :)

I have a Crown XTI 4002. Even though I've ran it fine with 1600W'sx2 @ 2 OHMS I would prolly just get a second and run one bridged (2400W's) for each 8 ohm cab.
