What else to know about the Krell Theater Amplifier Standard?
"The Krell Theater Amplifier Standard is all Krell, packing 200 watts of power for five channels. For the 7.1 system, use the Krell TAS for the center, side and rear speakers and use a Krell stereo or a pair of Evolution monoblock amps for a truly over-the-top experience. The Krell Amplifier Standard is built to insane tolerances and boasts a massive 4000 va toroidal transformer. There are both balanced and unbalanced inputs. Sonically, this amp is all Krell. Incredible bass. Power and headroom are a forgone conclusion and the overall control you will have on your speakers with the Krell Theater Amplifier Standard is simply sensational.
If you have always dreamed of owning a Krell amp, the Krell Theater Amplifier Standard is one the best ways to get into the game. Its flexibility to be used as a bridged stereo (or three-channel) amp makes it a perfect starter piece. For 7.1 systems with Krell Evolution monoblocks, you have the potential of an all-world power system that can be as dynamic as any movie soundtrack out there, while at the same time able to resolve the finest detail from a 5.1 SACD with glistening beauty and total control." - HomeTheaterReview
