Krell Amps

New amps from Krell are always hot news for audiophiles, and these two would also be at home in a high-end home theater. The S-275 2-channel amp ($5500) sports 275Wpc into 8 ohms and 550Wpc into 4 ohms. Two of them are shown on top. LIke all Krell amps, this one is also comfortable into almost any load, even very low impedances. Switches allow easy bridging, producing a powerful monoblock.

Below the S-275s are four S-150M monoblocks ($2500 each), offering 150Wpc into 8 ohms, 300Wpc into 4 ohms, and, again, the juice to drive even lower impedances without breaking a sweat.
