Great sound, but where is the power?
KAMAS, 20.03.2020
I have purchase this products to drive 4x Canton Quinto 540 HiFi speakers. They go in serial order to make 8ohm of load (4ohm x 2). The sound is great, would definitely recommend to anyone requiring a powerful amp for a HiFi system. However, the power is a bit missing. My speakers all together make 200W @8ohm. The amp is supposed to be much more powerful. However, it clips at around 95% of the speaker capability. Enough, but not as advertised. Probably there is some issues with the speaker impedance being more than 4ohm and thus making it more like 8-16ohm speaker set. However, I still expect more power from this amp. Otherwise, the sound quality is top and definitely recommendable to anyone for HiFi use.

Crown XLI1500 Amplifier
28.07.2014
Using this amplifier in a home hi fi system with some good quality speakers and a CD player with built in pre amplifier. It works very well cannot complain about anything. Drives the speakers with ease and gives the type of sound that I want smooth and powerfull. You can hear the fans at close range but not from where I listen so no problem to me.

Super Endstufe auch im HiFi-Bereich!
WoDi, 08.05.2020
Für meine HiFi-Anlage, die aktiv (3-Weg) betrieben wird, suchte ich eine Endstufe für den Bass bis 500Hz. Der wurde bisher von zwei gebrückten HiFi-Endstufen versorgt. Damit waren auch die Voraussetzungen gegeben: Sie musste trotz eingebauter Lüfter leise und rauscharm sein und die Basschassis (Precision Devices 15'') so antreiben, dass ein trockener, knackiger Bass erzeugt wird. Ich habe dann diese Endstufe aufgrund der fast ausschließlich guten bis sehr guten Bewertungen am 02.05.2020 gekauft. Alles ging sehr schnell, wie von Thomann gewohnt. Thomann ist eben Thomann! Vielen Dank! Da mir die Front der Crown XLi 1500 nicht gefiel, habe ich noch die db Technologies HPA 1000 geordert, um vergleichen zu können. Der Vergleich war schnell zu Gunsten der Crown XLi 1500 entschieden. Die Lüfter der Crown XLi 1500 hört man, egal in welcher Leistungslage sie sich befindet, nicht. Sie ist absolut wohnzimmertauglich. Der Bass kommt knackig und trocken und harmoniert bestens mit dem BMS-Mitteltontreiber und der Celestion-Hochtoneinheit. Die Legende, dass PA-Endstufen nicht in einer einer HiFi-Anlage eingesetzt werden sollten, stimmt zumindest für die Crown XLi 1500 nicht (ich kann nur für den Einsatz im Bassbereich sprechen; den Einsatz im Mittel- und Hochtonbereich müsste ich noch testen). Hilfreich ist auch der Schalter für die Einstellung der Eingangsempfindlichkeit (0,775V bzw. 1,4V). Im HiFi-Bereich sollte die Einstellung auf 1,4V ausreichen zumal sich dadurch etwas mehr Störsicherheit auf der Leitung ergibt. Die Crown XLi 1500 ist eine rundum gelungene Endstufe, die mit 2x330W an 8 Ohm genügend Reserven für die verschiedensten Einsatzzwecke hat.
Fazit: Ich empfehle die Crown XLi 1500 uneingeschränkt! Für knapp 300 EUR ist die Crown XLi 1500 eine sehr gute Endstufe, die, würde sie mit einem anderen Logo, einer gebürsteten Alufront etc. ausgestattet, wahrscheinlich als HiFi-Endstufe das Fünffache kosten würde.
