The reason I got the CS800 so cheap was that they said it was "broken".  I asked what was wrong with it and they said it didn't have a very loud output.  I asked them to show me, and they proceeded to plug a mic into the XLR jack in the back and a loudspeaker to the output.

Of course there was almost no output!  So I bought it and it worked fine for many years until I sold it.

I have seen several cases where people expect to plug a mic into the input of a power amp and expect it to put out full power.  One case was where I guy got really mad because he said I did not know how to fix amps to "work properly".  You can't fix stupid!
