turbo, have you listened to the Parasound JC 1 monoblocks to compare them to the A21s you were using? Lots of people say the sound is even better.

Yes as matter in fact a really good friend of mine owns a pair and they are wonderful amps to listen to and I do believe they better than A21. But again, different room, different speakers.

This is what I am currently run with my B&W 804 Diamond. Accuphase A-200 x 2 (pure class A mono amp & 132dB SNR)

http://www.accuphase.com/model/a-200.html

and yes they cost me an arm and leg plus a kidney.

I also plan to sell my B&W 804D and move to a B&W 800D instead.

Cheers

Howard

@Turbo

Honestly I wasn't trying to put down the XLS, I just made an off hand comment that was taken the wrong way, sometimes the inside words come outside. I am just a regular guy and I have limited funds and also just want my equipment to get along without too much grief. Also I think I got this conversation mixed in with one that Oakvillemat was having and got some facts cross threaded. From what I read , it is like you said, class D has come a long way but im not sure the audiophools are ready to get on board. smile Honestly I am at a disadvantage since my hearing is pretty much crap now and the XLS would probably work just fine but being old school I want what I pay for to be big and heavy LOL.

If you don't pull your back while trying to bring your amp into your listening room, then the amp isn't worth using grin

I was looking at a XPR5 and it comes on a pallet. I would have to bring our forklift home LOL

Don't worry it's not like I own Crown stock or anything.

But I got an idea for fun, I am going to disguise my XLR2500 by placing it in a heavy aluminum chassis and see if my audiophile friends will like them better... Pure experiment! :P

I am going to put XLS2500 in one of these(40lbs) with custom laser engraved logo so that my friends won't suspect anything. They look pretty substantial and should impress a lot of people.

This enclosure should be fairly good for passive cooling too. We will see...
