What else to know about the Krell FBP 200C?
"This is an amplifier that demands some effort and attention in how it is integrated into a complete system. I A-B tested this amp with a number of preamps, D/A, transports, and cables. I found out very quickly that the amp either exaggerated or added brightness and lost bass without a very well matched system. I found the sound I was hoping for with the Krell HTS2 A/V preamp, which surprised me since I expected an A/V preamp would sacrifice a great deal on the audio side. I found this chain supported the B&W Nautilus 802''s very nicely with a beautiful purity from top to bottom. The Krell 200c gratefully lacks the colorations attributed to the previous KSA series which I also owned. I would also recommend the use of Siltech cables which did seem to offer some benefit to the quality of reproduction." - AudioReview.com
