What else to know about the Krell KAV 3250?

"After months of looking for a good deal on the 3250 to replace my old 250a/3 tht I had sold thinking I would find a 3250 in a snap, and not being really happy with teh Proceed HPA3 in the interrum, I am shocked that since I got the 3250 and how just flat out incredible it sounds in every aspec that I don't just read drooling reviews of it on this site.

It has the thuderous bass that defines Krell and separates them by light years from all otehr HT amps, and always has, but with a level of sonic detail, and accuracy that frankly I never thought would ever be achieved by a multi channel amp of any brand. I has no negatives, and when it becamse to the first HT amp in the Krell line to actually use technology from teh Full Power Balanced line, it sounds like they used most of it successfully here.

Does anybody else own one of these?

I am sorry to go on and on, but unless I am the only owner, or got some special unit that is totally different then the regular one's, I should be reading huge press about this thing. Lastly the brushed silver is thrice at sexy as the picture also, and I highly recommend this puppy." - AVS Forum (2003)
