I have for sale one Krell KAV400xi integrated amplifier. It looks, sounds and operates as it should with no known issues. It comes with original box and a manual. The packing had been misplaced and has been replaced with high quality, fitted, closed cell foam packing. The box has some water damage, so I will double box it for shipping The remote had also been misplaced so I am including a URC MX900 that I have programmed to operate this unit. This is a programmable remote that can be programmed to operate your entire system if you like. When new this remote cost about $400. This unit has been in one system its entire life. This is a great sounding, highly reviewed integrated amp that you will be proud of. See below for what Krell hast to say about it.
This fully integrated amplifier and preamplifier has a fully balanced signal path from input to output and employs a wide bandwidth design with low negative feedback for sonic accuracy throughout the frequency spectrum. All circuits up to the driver stage are pure Class A. Krell’s new surface mount technology (SMT) means that the KAV–400xi is an integrated amplifier with big power—200 Watts per channel—that does not require big space. SMT allows individual circuit elements to be placed very close together. This shortens signal paths and allows circuit elements to operate at the same temperature, resulting in more accurate signal transfer and enhanced reliablilty. The KAV–400xi is easy to operate and integrate into your system. The remote control accesses all amplifier functions, and remote control connection options allow the KAV–400xi to be easily connected with other components. The Theater Throughput feature provides easy integration of the amplifier into a home theater system.
Description: Solid-state, remote-controlled, stereo integrated amplifier with 5 line-level inputs (1 balanced, 3 single-ended, 1 single-ended tape loop) and 1 set of single-ended preamplifier outputs.

Here is an Excerpt from the Stereophile Magazine Review
Eight years after introducing its crowd-pleasing KAV-300i, Krell has followed it up with an integrated amplifier that is more elegant, more powerful, and just plain sounds better. And for a scant $150 more, it's an even greater bargain.
When JA picked up the 400xi for measurement, I called it "my favorite Krell ever." That surprised me, because I've reviewed a whole passel of Krell components in my career: the KPS-28c CD player; DVD Standard DVD player; KRC-HR, KCT, and Krell KAV-280p preamplifiers; and the Audio Standard, FPB-300, FPB-300c, and KAV-2250 power amplifiers. None was less than superb, and some were sublime—I still wake up some nights from dreams of the KRC-HR-Audio Standard system.
But what I blurted out to John unedited was the truth: Even though Krell has most assuredly built better products, the KAV-400xi is special. Not because it's "affordable," not because it's exquisite audio jewelry, not because it meets some watts-to-dollar ratio of goodness, but simply because it's as faithful to the music as I am.
Well, to tell the truth, more so.
