XLS DriveCore 2 Series Technology
This new amplifier technology seamlessly integrates the amplifier drive stage into the power output stage fusing everything into a chip the size of a dime. The foundational DriveCore circuitry is based on breakthroughs by Crown's own Gerald Stanley with five patents applying to the advanced feedback, modulation and output stage technologies. DriveCore's front-end drive circuits leverage the inherent efficiency of Class D output stages while also maintaining superb sonic characteristics. The end result is an ultra-efficient one-piece audio amplifier circuit that exhibits the exemplary audio quality of a highly evolved Class AB design.
Class-I, also known as BCA (Balanced Current Amplifier) is Crown’s patented, cutting-edge technology that gets more power out of an amplifier with less waste than was ever before possible. Class-I technology offers several key advantages. It provides unprecedented efficiency, requiring less power from the AC supply than other designs and that can add up to significant cost savings over the life of the amplifier. Class-I handles reactive loudspeaker loads easily and gracefully, by reusing energy returned from the loudspeaker rather than dissipating it as heat or forcing the amp into premature current limiting. This characteristic means class-I amplifiers run better and longer—especially at lower impedances. It also makes them more reliable, since they are not constantly stressed to their limits or subjected to excessive heat. Best of all, as proud owners can attest, amplifiers with class-I technology sound great, with a powerful, accurate sound that stands out from the competition.
Multiple patents – more than any of our competitors combined. Historical audio achievements. A never-ending list of industry-changing product introductions. Innovative technical advances. Crown’s history is one of an uninterrupted list of achievements in sound. And, as evidenced by DriveCore, we’re continuing to set new standards for Crown’s future – and for the entire industry as well.

Light weight, “feature loaded display” and “stealth cosmetics” seem to be the stellar selling points of this unit.
Weakest 200+ watts I’ve heard to date. I own older amps AND car amps with less power that sound clearer & more punchy. No punch in the lower end. overall thin sounding.
DOES NOT include any rubber feet or mounting pads to place it on a shelf. Even the lesser quality amps have feet which can be removed. Unless you are content in gouging your shelf with the amps sheet metal box, you’ll have to buy some feet or rack mount it. While you are out shopping, be sure to get a longer power cord as the included cord is only 3 feet. As far as rack mounting, No manufacturer specs as to what rack mounting set back is required, to protect the face of the amp in a “pro audio” situation. This experimentation is left up to the end user. Useless “rack handles” are no more than cosmetic because no adult human finger will fit behind it.
Too many Features you may not use, but you pay for:
Stereo and bridged mode- The standard for most power amps.
Monaural bi-amp mode-What would you bi-amp in MONO? A personal monitor?
Stereo bi-amp mode used for HOME theater systems will drive two full range speakers in stereo, so you need A SECOND AMP to drive a sub.
Input “Y” mode- Same as stereo bi-amp mode. Will drive a single bi-amped channel, so again, you will need TWO AMPS set in this mode for stereo.
The input sensitivity adjustment is about the only sensible feature on the unit, to dial in the amp to accept home audio or “pro audio” sources.
LED lighting options included are pointless because the front panel lamps and display are too dim to be concerned with-even in total darkness.
The “Pure Band” crossover -A nice touch for most audiophiles who may know how to use it, however, is the average user going to know the optimum crossover points for their specific loudspeakers?
Loudspeaker crossover theory is a wide ranged subject to begin with. An incorrect crossover setting may blow some drivers, especially at higher volumes.
System information feature-Includes internal temperatures & voltages. Really? How is the end user of the amp supposed to know if the amp is operating in a dangerous temperature range? By constantly monitoring the display while the amp is functioning? Who would know the operating temperature limitations to begin with? The manufacturer? Certainly not the end user, since it is not posted in the vague “owner’s manual”
I would not recommend this amplifier in either an audiophile or pro audio application unless it’s a smart phone karaoke in your living room.
My main motive for trying out the XLS1502 was to try and identify an efficient amplifier that would help resolve a heat soak issue I currently have with my under-sized cooling capabilities in my media closet. My hope was that if performance was OK I could get 3 more XLS1502 amps to run the front 3 speakers. All the speakers are Goldenear Technology (Triton2 for FR/FL, Sat60C for Centre, Invisa 650 for RR/RL). The whole set up is controlled by a Marantz AV8801 Processor.
My previous set up had utilized XLR connections from the processor to the amplifier for all channels. I found when I connected the XLR cables for the RR/RL channels to the XLS1502 I created a relatively loud hiss in the front 3 channels, even with no source. When playing sound through the front 3 the hiss remained audible and was generally unacceptable.
I switched from XLR to RCA cables and cured the hiss in the front channels. The problem I now found was that I wasn't able to get the gain high enough on the XLS1502 to match the front 3 without inducing an audible hiss from the rear channels. After much playing around I have managed to find a level where only minimal hiss is produced from the rears at normal listening volumes that can only be detected when standing right by the rear speakers. When the volume is turned up for movies etc the hiss does become audible.
Even at this gain level the Audessy XT32 engine in the Marantz has had to dial back the front 3 channels by over 10db to balance the system.
I am not sure if the problem is the relatively high efficiency of the Goldenear speakers, but just in general I have been somewhat underwhelmed by the performance of this amplifier. The many glowing reviews I found led me to believe this would be a great amp for home audio, but I found I wasn't really that impressed even when I tested the amp in my 2 channel set up (Tekton SEAS Pendragon speakers).
My final issue with the amp is there is a lot of coverage around the 12V trigger functionality on this amp. So far I have not been able to identify how to activate this function. There is no regular 3.5m mono cable socket and no real mention of this function in the user manual. It's not a huge issue given the efficiency of the amp, but was the main reason why I went for the newer XLS1502 over the cheaper XLS1500.
I will continue to test in my set up and see if I can resolve some of these performance issues, as nobody else seems to have any of these problems and the amp is fairly universally praised, but so far I am not hugely impressed at this amp in this application.
