Customer pre-owned set

The KRC-3 is a visually striking piece of equipment. It’s circuitry is purported to be Class A, fully balanced. The Krell presented detail and resolution especially when using the balanced XLR connection to the power amp. Its midrange range presentation is dynamic, airy, lively, and real. Tonal


balance is also correct. Extension at both frequency extremes are good while delivering smooth highs and taut bottom. Harmonic integrity and timbre are also nice. It is just so musical. The accurate volume control with remote and a balance function enhanced the functionality.
