The Krell’s cursed Sound: 25 yeas and counting….

There is a relentless prejudges that some subjects could be cursed and therefore they bring bad fortune.

“What might be less fortunate in audio then just persistent horrible sound?” – rhetorically asked Dan D’Agostino, the CEO of Krell Industries. “It is really strange why our company never was able to get any more or less civilized sound out of a single peace of audio equipment we ever bult. Look at out amplifiers and loudspeakers, the digital or analog – whatever we even touched we always ended up with identically dead sound. This is very-very strange!” - Dan continued, -“ our dealers sell Krell like very successfully, the media very much welcome out products and the reviewers call each other to dual for the opportunities to review Krells … However, despite of all our amplifiers and speakers never had any sound other then just the sound of a small electromobile running over the glass-made Coca-Cola bottles.”

Mr. D’Agostino said that the recent meeting of the company Board made a decision to reverse the Krell’s Curse. The Krell engineers using their highly sensitive equipment where able to quantify the charge and polarity of that “Krell’s Curse”. Fortunately they also discovered that the famously know Voodoo Dolls have the identical curse change but with an opposite polarity. So, the Krell invention was to packed into boxes with the Krell products the Voodoo Dolls and let the KrelloVoodoo’s sandwich to sit there for 10 years in order the curses completely mutually eliminate each other. The first party of the D’Cursed amplifiers was placed for the 10 years incubation 3 month ago. The Krell’s marketing department calls the new product line as “Evolution After Evolution” Series and Mr. D’Agostino anticipate that when his new, free from Curse amplifies will hatch in 10 years, then it will revolution the high-end audio.

Some eyebrows were risen recently when the “Absolute Home Theater” Magazine published last week a review about the Krell’s “Evolution After Evolution” amplifiers. The incident was cleared when the reviewer informed us that he did have a change to audition the unhatched Krell becose the Krell’s marketing director kindly placed a telephone receiver into one of the incubating Krell boxes.

“Juts stay with us”, - Mr. D’Agostino said. “In 10 years, unless you lost your hearing and taste from the Krell’s former products we should be able to please you.”

Yeah, and I once thought Krell was the way to go, a boy's (or a man's) dream when I saw pictures of the KSA 100 poweramp for the first time. I must admit that in 1991 I heard a demo with Krell KAS poweramps, Wilson WATT/Puppy's + Pow Wow subwoofer and ARC LS-2 preamp which was very lifelike. Actually it was one of the best demo's I've ever heard. I guess I was one of those morons according to your vocabulary (and I might be a bigger moron these days, heheh).
 
Romy, what do you think of the eAR ICEpoweramps? I own four of those bastards (eAR 1001), each capable of delivering 500 Watts to 8 Ohms and 1000 Watts to 4 Ohms. They have a built in switch mode power supply. I'm using them in passive biamp mode.
Recently I'm also using AC isolation transformers (from Tamura and Audio Consulting) with good results. Those ICEpower amps are also plugged into two 1500 Watts transformers from Audio Consulting. Those amps are of course no SETs in terms of sonics but they sound better than most SS amps, including the big Krells and Levinsons. They even bettered my Accuphase A-50V class-A poweramp in certain aspects.

Audio Consulting" - the scorning bitch

Chris,

I would like do not go on tangent but I am craving to write my News Release about the mentioned by you Audio Consulting company form Switzerland. The “Audio Consulting” and the objective that they peruse are the VERY MUCH an epicenter of what I call audio Mormonism. I could hardly point out in audio any most pompous and arrogant company whose understanding what they deal with in audio would be so primitive. As far as I concern the Audio Consulting is not a “audio oriented company” but rather  the “sounds related mental diagnose”….

Rgs,
Romy the caT

I must say one of the brands I've missed at your News Release is indeed Audio Consulting. Before this news is released I must say that the guy behind Audio Consulting is a very dedicated audiophile. His never ending search towards perfectionism is impressive. Even the minutest detail gets his attention. Of course, like many of us, he too is a believer, that means a believer of his own dogma. But this dogma has many followers I'm affraid. Probably they are all infected by some kind of virus and stigmatized for life. Heheh.
(PS: I have two Audio Consulting transformers, so I'm infected too. Quarantaine?).
