It is so minimalist, it doesn't even look like an integrated amp. Its 15 watts, but don't let that discourage you. Its performance is far greater than its power rating, or meager price, would dare suggest. Read More

Entry-level Krell gear? Say it ain't so. Of course, "entry-level" for Krell doesn't exactly mean "cheap" nor does it mean low-powered. With 250-watts per channel, the 250a is hard-core. We check it out, and the matching 250p preamp. Read More
