Has anyone gotten their hands on one yet? I found one for $500, and was thinking of getting one to power my mains, 2 JBL SR4722's, rated at 600W @ 8-ohms. The one I found is the XTi 1000. I'm still trying to get the hang of matching speakers with amps, but these amps intrigue me. I know Crown rates their amps with 50amp power, so, the ratings are probably off on max output.

I already have a DriveRack, so would it be best to find a more powerful amp for around the same price?

I'm looking into the capabilities of these now, so, if anyone has used them, please post. Did you like them, or not and why?

I haven't used the Xti, but if you have a driverack, I would just get a normal amp since the Xti has onboard DSP. And if you want to run stereo you wouldn't have nearly enough power for those cabs.
