Krell Foundation 4K Ultra HD Processor
“The Foundation maintained the clarity, dimensionality and ease of even the most timbrally complex, dynamically challenging passages…”
— Sound & Vision
I’ve used many processors including Classe, Krell Showcase, Parasound, McIntosh, Acurus and Marantz. All have strengths and weaknesses but the Krell Foundation is easily the simplest to get great surround sound from and in my opinion has the best 2 channel audio reproduction of any that I’ve used. If sound quality is your number one goal, then this is the processor you want. Others boast more features, but in use the Krell is simply in a different league. 2 channel music reproduction is equivalent to some of the finest audio equipment available at any price and that carries over to surround sound. There are many professional review’s that can describe the features and sound better than I can, so have a look for them, but in terms of sound quality, I haven’t heard better.
You can actually own a Krell Foundation for the same or less than a newer unit from a different manufacturer, and as mentioned, if sound quality is your number one goal, this unit will deliver, it’s a Krell!
I purchase from an authorized dealer, and it comes with accessories shown in photos. No dents, dings or deep scratches and no performance issues.
