Does this amp have RCA outputs? If not, then how would a person go about connecting this unit to a pre/pro? I am interested in using this amp to power my front mains (L+R) and connect it to my Anthem avm-20 pre/pro. Anyone know how to go about connecting these together?
I think it does offer RCA Outputs, but if it did not you simply need to purchase XLR-RCA Adapters. Monoprice sells them for a pittance.

Yes, it has XLR, 1/4" and RCA imputs. What kind of out puts does your pre/pro have. Depending on how the rest of your system stacks up, you will have a choice of connections. I'm on page 2 of this post, will save this & go back to see your system if it's linked.

Jet don't you mean RCA inputs, just run RCA interconnects from your pre/pro L&R preouts to the amp's RCA L&R inputs and use the amp's speakers terminals to hook up your mains and drive them with the Crown.. what do you have the Anthem connected to now, since the avm-20 is a preamp processor you need external amplification, since you are planning on using the XLS 1000 to drive your mains what's driving the rest if any?

I don't have an amp yet. Still looking into various options.

Jet, I hear you. One option to consider depending on your mains and other speakers that you may have is the new Emotiva UPA-5, it has been reduced from $499 to $399, it is a solid five channel amp delivering 80 watts and 110 watts into 8 and 4 Ohm loads respectively with all channels delivered over entire frequency range and not bench tested at 1khz sine wave. A very nice unit to consider, I don't know what your mains are or any other speakers you have but this amp is stable into four Ohm loads ACD. Hope this helps.
