    I need some advice from anyone knowledgeable of Crown power amplifiers. I have inherited a Crown 300 DCII. It is in like-new condition, having sat in a road cabinet unused for years. Any ideas as to what I should ask for it? Thanks for the help.

  3. The Crown DC series were and are great amps, no question about it, but were talking about a really old design here. Considering they weigh in at around 45lbs, are something like 4 rack spaces high and only deliver only 300 watts per channel, I wouldn't expect the resale value to be very good. The price of watts has dropped dramatically since the DC series was king and considering that you can but a new power amp (QSC) that delivers comparable power for under $300, I think you'd be very lucky to get a couple of hundred bucks for it.
