I bought this amp to take the signal level output of my Line 6 brand Variax 600 guitar & PODxt Live guitar amplifier/speaker/effects modeller. I am driving a 12" EVM per channel, and the result is LOUD. I have driven the amp into overload from time to time, and there are no apparent horrid artifacts from doing that.I really, really would like to have some meter on the face, which is the sole reason I gave such a low features rating (hard to give a star for a feature that is not present...).It does not seem to be quite as loud as my 100W tube guitar amp, but I have read that tube amps often put out double their rated power when overdriven, and sometimes even more than that. So perhaps my ears have been ?calibrated? regarding what 100W sounds like with a yardstick that?s twice the size it?s billed as. (My 10W per channel stereo cannot come close to the volume of my guitar amp, for instance.)I really recommend this amp, and am toying with the idea of buying another to have handy for amplification needs that arise from time to time. At this price you can actually afford to do something like that, to my way of thinking.

I don't know what this unit would do if I pushed it hard for extended periods of time, but if that's what you're doing, maybe you need to read reviews other than mine.For the price I couldn't resist gettomg this little amp just to run one 15" Behringer Monitor I got from M.F. to spoil my Karaoke singers, but for the heck of it I hooked it up in stereo to my 15" Yamaha Clubs and hurt my ears - I couldn't believe it. I decided then that when I'm doing a little DJ-only gig, I'll leave my 400+400 Yamaha head at home and just bring this amp and my laptop (the DJ music) and appropriate mains. I even got a little Behringer Mixer from M.F. just for that purpose, so I could hook up a mic for announcements, and/or some little CD player instead working my 3-disk Karaoke machine for CDs.I'm trying to think of reasons to justify to my wife buying a couple more of these little "Gems"!Thanks Musician's (DJs and KJs) Friend.

I bought the 1000-watt version a few years ago....it blew up the first time I used it, but the retailer said 'No problem' and replaced it in about a week. I've been using the new one in a bi-amped PA setup ever since with great sound, albeit a little hissy, and not a glitch since. (Oh no, hope I didn't jinx myself!)
My group plays a lot of shows, Vocal Trio with two guitars and bass fiddle. I am on my third amp in about 5 years of rugged use. So they last for about a year and a half, but they sure work great. The gain and fidelity are remarkable for the price, and I feel that we more than get our moneys worth.The guy who wished they had an XLR input must be blind (or a bluegrass banjo player).
Maybe I got lucky, but my XP-350 was a great buy. Ok, so we're talking about my home stereo, but I am very particular about my music. I use a Crown XLS202D with a pair of Yamaha S115V speakers. Great clarity, but didn't have the punch I wanted, so I added a Peavey PR Sub. Still, not enough presence, so I took a chance and bought the XP-350 to drive the sub in a bi-amped configuration. Finally, the fat sound I was looking for. I cross the sub at 100Hz and run the XP-350 in Bridged Mode, which gives me 350 watts into 8 ohm. The Crown pumps 200 watts per channel to the mains. A nice ratio of power. If the XP-350 holds up, it will be some of the best money I have spent. My ears are happy!
The fans are too loud for indoor use, but I immediately replaced them with the quietest computer fans I could find. I also added 1/4" jacks to the back for inputs and one for the bridged output. Obviously this voids the warranty, but it works great. Sound is very good, and it has plenty of power. I use it as a lightweight alternative to my heavy bass head, and my band uses it for our PA monitors during gigs. So far, it does the job for a very low price, especially when on sale!
We have had two, the first one was so distorted you couldn't understand the vocalist the other worked for a month then quit altogether.
Picked up 20 units on the last sale. For a really cheap throw away amp they are cheap enough although the quality is not built in them. Poor fan, Main power supply Capacitors blow up after about a year and other issues. Of the 20 all 20 have already had to be serviced. Ended up here as am doing a search for the schematic have one on the bench here with resitor r47 burnt open and cannot read parts value anymore to replace it.Overall if you need a poormans backup these would be ok but I wouldn't trust it for everday use unless it stays in the garage.
Yes the fan is noisy but I had to put this into service when our main monitor amp went out. Worked just fine and has been now for about a year.Wish they had XLR input instead of the little RCA.
I bought this unit over a year and half a go and kept it in storage till I put the studio together. I was most dissapointed that the right channel didn't work, so I feel I got burned on the deal. The fan is very loud, I don't recommend this product for studio use.
I was definately not expecting this amp to be this good. I was planning on using these with some extra speakers I abought to just add some fills to my PA system, and as an 'emergency' backup in case my Crate went down. It's officially me new main power amp!
Bought one for monior system - 4 10 inch kustoms. Works great. Plenty of volume @ half dial for 5 piece band playing small venues.
