The Phantom III line-level preamplifier is a fully balanced, dual monaural design, with separate power-supply regulation and circuit boards for each channel. The circuit boards utilize surface-mount technology with proprietary multiple-output current mirrors that offer higher open-loop linearity than traditional designs do. The circuitry also features a higher-than-normal bandwidth design (700 kHz), which is said to push signal artifacts well beyond the range of human hearing. The design uses no negative feedback. Krell's Current Mode design utilizes current rather than voltage to transmit the signal, which is said to be better-suited to taking advantage of the higher-than-normal circuit bandwidth, as well being more immune to signal distortion than traditional voltage-based circuits are. Krell believes the sonic benefits to the current-based system are well worth the increased cost that comes with the nearly threefold increase in parts count and increased engineering burden.

This unit is in excellent condition.  The remote is showing some wear on the edges, however its solid metal so will outlast most others.
