Krell KAV-280cd owners in the SF Bay Area?


I'm in the market for a CD player, and I want to give the Krell KAV-280cd a listen. Does anyone have one that I could come hear? I'm putting together a system that's very much on the romantic side, and I'm interested to know what it might sound like with a fairly detailed and forward front-end. I very well might end up getting an Audio Refinement CD Complete Alpha because it's what my favorite (and trusted) dealer carries, but I'd like to hear some other choices as well. As far as I know, none of the Bay Area dealers has a 280cd in stock. I'm in Berkeley.

The rest of my system:
Silverline SR-15 monitors
Electrocompaniet ECI-3 integrated

The KAV-280cd was replaced by the SACD Standard in the spring of 2003. The CD Playback back on the SACD Standard is an improvement over the KAV-280cd plus you get reference quaility SACD Playback for only $500-more than the KAV-280cd. Your best bet would be to look for a pre-owned SACD Standard and start buying SACDs.
Hi there,

Thanks very much for the info!
Anyone still using a Krell cd or sacd player?
