Krell KAV-300cd CD Player (needs repair) [Expired]


no longer for sale

Amended on

I've had this CDP in storage for around 2 years after liquidating the rest of my system. Prior to liquidating my system, this player sounded wonderful; however, roughly 10% of the CDs I ran through the machine would not play. This was mostly MP3 CDs and some various older and newer discs. I could not find any commonalities among the discs that would not play; however, those that would were replayed with wonderful dynamics and the strong bass for which Krell CDPs are known. The unit is in solid cosmetic condition for its age with no major nicks, dings, etc. The face of the unit is in great shape for its age with only the normal slight discoloration around the buttons (from finger oils, etc.) which is common to these older Krell units. There is a small nick on the bottom of the black trim on the right front of the unit (visible in the first picture and in extreme closeup in the last picture). This nick would nearly disappear with a quick filing.

After taking this unit out of storage I've attempted to test it; however, the transport seems to be stuck now (this problem never occurred prior to storing the unit). I know transport replacements are common to units of this age (and this model, itself, I believe) so, while unpleasant, this is not entirely surprising. Through discussions with other members who've had the required repairs performed by Krell service (i.e., transport replacement and laser repair/replacement) I'm estimating that these repairs would cost between $600 and $800 (if anybody believes this range is inaccurate please let me know so I can adjust the listing and ensure I'm not misleading anybody). Since I've liquidated the rest of my system and now typically work 60+ hour weeks, I just don't have the time to have this unit repaired, myself.

As noted, the unit is in good cosmetic condition for its age (7-8/10)but has some operational issues. Given such, I've listed the condition as a 6/10. The original box and remote are not included; however, a genuine Krell replacement remote is included (as pictured). Photos are available at http://s806.photobucket.com/albums/yy349/trentlane669/Krell/

Given that these units still typically sell for $1,400+, I'd like to get $750 for this unit excluding shipping and any Paypal fees. I am open to reasonable offers, but lowball offers will be ignored. Please contact me with any questions.
