Krell 300i - good value at £1100?

I've read lots of good reviews about this and have been offered one for £1100. It's mint with box etc.

Is this a good deal?

P.S. I've just bought it anyway, so please don't tell me it's garbage:D

As you've bought it,I'll say this...you'll enjoy it very much....bags of power and control,and plenty of reserve.

At £1100,it's a good buy,so all in all,you've done very well,and should have plenty to enjoy over Xmas.

Well I did buy it after a small audition so it wasn't a blind buy. The original UK list price was £2800 by all accounts and I've seen them go on Ebay for upto£1300.

I think you've paid a good,fair price for the 300i.....a lot of things on ebay tend to go for slightly inflated prices once a couple of people get bidding against each other.

As to the amp itself,it's obviously not going to be in quite the same league as their Class A offerings,but it is vastly better than most other integrated amps,and especially at that price.

I had this amp for a couple of years and I think its excellent, particularly at the price you paid for it.

The only thing is I think you need to be careful about not partnering it up with forward sounding equipment as it maybe a little in yer face!! Not Naim kinda in yer face, but still quite forward IMO.

Just had a look at your sig and the system seems well balanced IMO.

Enjoy!

Music: Krell KAV-300i Amp, Meridian 507 CD, Kef Reference One-Two Speakers, QED XT-400 & Nordost Blue Heaven I/C.
Meridian, Krell, KEF... we have a lot in common. I mentioned 'Translucent' interconnects in another thread, they were a very noticeable improvement on Blue Heaven, @£80/m and a money back guarantee it's worth giving them a try.

Bugger - just bought the Blue Heaven's off the classifieds. Still I'm always game for a change:cool:

I must say the more I listen to the Krell, the more impressive it is. I've moved up from a Cyrus 8 which I thought was pretty good, but the Krell is on a different level altogether. Stacks more detail and the soundstage is immense.

The only other 'cheap' suggestion I have is CableTalk Concert speaker cable, it has the 'open' treble of a silver cable but much more bass weight, ideal for an amp like the Krell.

LOL, barely a day goes by that your name isn't attached to a sale on either eBay, forums or newsgroups :D

A quick question: do you honestly ever hang on to any item of kit long enough to actually use it?

Having listened to the Krell almost non-stop for the past few days I have to agree with Av geeza. It does have a slightly forward presentation which is not to my taste. I bought it with a mind to try and sell it on if I didn't like it.

Is that OK with everybody?:laugh:
