Potentially embarrassing depending on your stance of whether all amps sound the same.
Not all the amps will sound the same regardless of topology/class IMO. There are always the good , the bad, and the ugly ones. My guess is that if money is no object then everyone's choice would be vastly different. When reality factors in, the diminish return on investment is always going to be different for everyone. I have tons of friends who think I am crazy to even consider using pro amp in my setup. But again I am these are most likely same people probably laugh at me for spending that much money on audio brand they never heard before called Axiom
I based the purchase on solid spec, price per watt, not brand or assumption. If Crown XLS doesn't work out or they don't live up to my expectation, I will sell them, as simple as that
