audio reseach ref 3 or krell KTC...?

Hello all,

I would like to know if any of you has ever compared these two preamps. I have never heard the Krell KTC but I read very good reviews about it. I will be very grateful if you could be so kind to share your personal opinions with me.

Thank you very much for your time

Just spent two weeks using my ARC ref 3 with an FPB700c without coupling capacitors - perfect match.
Preamplifiers having teflon or low leakage dielectric capacitors such as used by ARC or conrad johnson should not be a problem.
Dave_b, why is the 400cx better than the 450mcx? As far as I know it is the same ampliifer with a single channel, but the power supply of each 450mcx has the same power of that of the stereo CX.
