Krell Industries, LLC, is the premier manufacturer of high-end audio equipment, featuring award winning amplifiers, preamplifiers, SACD players, DVD players, surround sound processors, digital-to-analog converters, and loudspeakers for serious music lovers and home theater aficionados.
High-end audio is a demanding pursuit; an ongoing quest for excellence in music reproduction that drives equipment manufacturers to strive for the absolute in design and performance. With a keen understanding of this passionate drive, Krell Industries was founded in 1980.
For nearly three decades, Krell has earned a distinguished reputation for engineering innovation and product excellence. The company\’s history is replete with product introductions that have deeply impacted the high-end audio industry. The most discriminating audiophiles and product reviewers have consistently recognized Krell components for standard-setting performance. The shear breadth of Krell amplifiers\’ dynamic range capabilities conveys a startling realism that transcends previous designs. Seemingly unlimited frequency response, combined with unerring accuracy and fortitude, extend a tradition that began with the first Krell amplifier; the KSA-100. The KSA-100 was the first high power, high-current, true Class A biased stereo power amplifier available to audiophiles. It was the first Krell product, and its resounding success established Krell as an important new technological contributor to high-end audio.
From the KSA-100 to the present, Krell continually “pushes the envelope” of performance in our search for greater amplifier power. Exploration of new technologies, driven by a never-ending quest to elevate the standard of excellence, has resulted in breakthrough audio designs. Over the years, the Krell line of power amplifiers, including benchmark products such as the KRS-100, KRS-200, and the Audio Standard models, has established a legacy of unparalleled sonic performance.
The Krell product line has diversified, but Krell\’s fundamental research into amplifier design and performance remains at the core of the company\’s achievements. Every Krell component upholds the legacy, incorporating unique technologies that are the direct result of Krell\’s discoveries in audio amplification. They provide unprecedented linearity with the control and accuracy that only comes from superior current capability. The sound is lively and unconstrained, in a manner that evokes live performance and the true sound of instruments. The Krell legacy will continue to evolve with products that deliver innovative engineering, perfection in build quality, and outstanding audio performance.
Pioneer is a company full of engineers who have difficulty accepting the words “can not be done.” Frequently, industry experts will say something is impossible – only to have Pioneer prove them wrong. So when everyone said that a vehicle was too harsh an environment for the sensitive laser needed to play CDs, Pioneer created the world\’s first in-car CD player. When they said that GPS was only made for military uses, Pioneer created the first in-car GPS navigation system. We\’ve also been instrumental in developing new optical disc technologies. Pioneer had a hand in creating the new Blu-ray Disc format to play movies at home in HD or to record volumes of data from your computer. We also were the first company to create recordable DVD and before that, the Laser Disc. We take product innovation seriously – so you don\’t have to. You can sit back, relax and enjoy the fruits of our efforts.
Many electronics companies make receivers, few excel at it. Marantz falls easily into the second category. Invented in the 1950’s by a classical guitarist and engineer named Saul Marantz, he was never satisfied with how stereo systems reproduced what he heard when he played live, so he began to design and build his own. Now almost 60 years later, Marantz receivers and other electronic components are always listed as some of the best sounding in the industry. The reason? They place more effort and R&D into their amplifier sections, while still providing all of the latest features available on todays modern receiver.
As a primary inventor of the CD, DVD and Blu-ray disc, Sony has a pretty good idea of what they are doing when it comes to optical disc manufacture and playback. Which is why we use Sony players in many of our jobs.
