The Krell Foundation Pre / processor. $6,500.00

Here are a few quotes:


“Switching to the Foundation from my moderately priced but sonically accomplished Marantz AV7005 and especially from the previously reviewed Integra DHC-60.5…was transformational. It was as if the entire system had been changed”

“The Foundation lifted to exalted,billowy sonic heights Mychael Danna’s ethnically complex musical score filled with delicate, exotic Eastern percussive
and wind accents as well as sweeping strings and familiar Franco-accordions. The Foundation maintained the clarity, dimensionality, and ease of even the most timbrally complex, dynamically challenging passages.”

“The 192-kilohertz/24-bit Blu-ray Discs in Neil Young’s Archives Volume 1 box set, reinforced the Foundation’s high-performance audio bona fides. On “Heart of Gold,” Kenny Buttrey’s kick drum approached the size, weight, and textural solidity I get on my big two-channel high-end rig downstairs.”

Krell Details:

The Foundation includes a new Krell development – Intelligent HDMI switching. Intelligent HDMI switching is a combination of circuitry and innovative software that optimizes HDMI operation. Various parameters including the monitor’s electronic ID and source video resolution are stored in non-volatile memory. All 10 source inputs are always active so source, channel, video resolution, and audio format changes are instantaneous. The Intelligent HDMI design provides the fastest signal recognition possible.

Krell designed the Foundation with flexibility and ease-of-use in mind, with extensive routing capability of the audio inputs to the various outputs. During setup, the specific paths will be chosen based on how the user intends to use each source, displays, and audio output channels.
The Foundation will allow owners to take full advantage of the best audio soundtracks available, with decoding of Dolby Digital, Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS, DTS-ES Discrete, Matrix, and DTS-HD Master Audio. In addition, a full suite of post-processing modes are included, including Dolby Pro Logic IIx and DTS Neo 6. Krell’s proprietary surround modes, Party, General Admission, Front Row, and On Stage, offer a different way to listen to favorite tracks.
The Foundation also features Krell’s Automatic Room Equalization System (ARES), to ensure the best possible performance from every theater. ARES analyzes all the speakers in the system, their location, phase, and distance from each other, to determine the best crossover frequency, delay, and more. In addition, ARES incorporates the acoustics of the room to determine unique EQ curves for each of the 7.1 output channels. Unlike other room EQs, ARES can be programmed to only adjust the troublesome low frequencies, leaving high frequencies unaltered.
To allow full integration into a home automation system, the Foundation has Ethernet control, RS-232, 4 12v triggers (2@0.5A and 2@60mA), and RC-5.
