What else to know about the Krell KAV 300r?

"I have owned many integrated amplifiers, these include: NAD C320BEE, Consonance A-100 Linear, Cambridge Audio 840C, Creek 5350, Arcam FMJ-A22, Krell KAV-300iL, Krell KAV-400xi, and the PS Audio GCA-250.

I have tried most of the aforementioned amps powering Dynaudio Contour 1.3 SE monitors. I plain and simple like the Krell 300r better than any of the others. It is very dynamic, smooth, detailed and has incredible bass punch. Imaging is pinpoint and soundstage width and depth are outstanding. The tuner is absolutely astonishing, build quality and reliability are first rate!.

The Dynaudios are a fairly difficult load with a 6 ohm impedance and 85dB sensitivity. The 300r drives them effortlessly. With used prices considered it is an absolute steal and still to this day an excellent amplifier. There is better available but it will cost dearly to get it." - AudioReview
