I purchased the unit from consignment at House of Stereo (Jacksonville, Florida) and sent it to Krell Industries for service. I recently received it back from Orange, CT with capacitors and switches replaced. You can verify this with the Krell Service Center – Serial #8796101481. I have personally tested the unit on all inputs, except the balanced and it performs as expected. However, after living with it for a while, I am not satisfied with how it fits with the rest of my components and decided not to build a system around it. I am selling it to move in a different direction.
The Krell KAV-300i was well reviewed by Stereophile and was listed in Recommended Components. It offers 150 Wpc into 8 ohms (300 into 4) with a maximum voltage gain of 36.1dB, and peak current of 45A. It displays a -3dB bandwidth of nearly 90kHz (0.6Hz – 90kHz) while maintaining -110dB background noise compared to full power. The unit offers 5 inputs (3 RCA, 1 balanced, and 1 tape loop), gold-plated inputs and outputs, and a preamplifier output. It sports a classic Krell industrial aluminum alloy case and has a speaker-fault protection 12A fuse. I am throwing in an aftermarket 15A/125V power cable and Audioquest speaker terminal wrench as well.
This unit comes with an aftermarket power cord, suitable packaging provided by Krell Service (S-300i box), the remote (not working), a manual, the Krell Service invoice pictured, and an Audioquest speaker terminal wrench. Due to the recent service, I am selling the unit as is. The pictures show it in lesser condition than it actually appears. Buy with confidence from a trusted seller and retired U.S. Navy Chief. I will ship the unit carefully protected and insured by traceable means upon order. Enjoy!
