I haven't heard either w/your speakers, but the Plinius 8200 is an incredible integrated, I have been listening to it at my dealer's, and the phono stage is really good too. On the other hand, two friends have the Krell 300i, and one has had mechanical problems, has had to have it fixed at the factory. The Krells also sound very nice, but to my taste the Plinius is the most outstanding and an incredible value as well, considering what you get for your money. The Krells seem overpriced to me, and I am concerned at the breakdowns my friend has had. I didn't know Krell had reliability issues, and maybe in general they don't. But the 300i may not be their strongest unit. Just reporting my experience, of course you should listen and consider for yourself.
