    Since MAP is apparently $679, it looks like it is.

    Is the value really there in going with the DSP model as a bass amp?

    Nobody is stupid enough to actually pay me to play their gear.
    Pretty good deal but unless you need the filters (HPF would be an example) why go DSP?

    I only ask as I have a Crown XLS2000 with DSP and NEVER use the DSP features. I also have a ProLite 2.0 non-DSP which is cheap ($300-350) and insanely loud which I use all the time. The 3.0 would be overkill for almost every bassist out there IME.

    My Prolite2 came from audiosavings.com as an open-box item for $325 shipped.
    It still came with the 5-year (not transferrable) Crest warranty.

    I did NOT want the DSP functions, but DID want the built-in 4th order L-R crossover at 100 Hz.
    It's a great amp, and as noted above thunderously loud.

    I paid for all my gear myself. Well, me and MasterCard.
    Check out the pricing at www.northernsound.net. You'll have to call, email, or sign up for a customer # to get the price. It's worth the effort.

    Crest DSP has Waves Maxx built in. These are used in many top FOH situations. DSP has presets to store and recall settings.

    I just picked a 3.0 dsp up for $500 on ebay (infinity-electronics). I'll be glad to get this inuke out of my rack. I think there is one left.
