The Krell 20i blows away the 28C in every way....and it has great bass! I had the 2 players side by side. To be fair, I was told the 28C performed much better with Cast connections. The only problem with the 20i is the transport is not available for replacement.....although it can sometimes be found on e-bay from questionable sources. The 20i is generally listed at 2.5k-2.8k.
Thats funny, when i had 600c and KPS 25sc, Krell adviced me to run KCT and KPC 28c over KPS 25sc, together with 700cx which i had bought.
What i do remember is that KPS 28c sounded ok, but in some way it was not like i expected. According to Krell, KPS 25sc was much more coloured in the sound. Perhaps it was, but it also had an impact that the KCT and KPS 28c did not have.
I don't know what would be the sweet spot cdp to use with 700cx and KCT.
But i would not have chosen KPS 28c. Hope you like the 20i?
Never listened to that unit. Lately i had a Wadia 381 which i have sold.
I liked the Wadia and i think it had suited as a cdp with KCT and 700cx.
I have owned a KPS 28c for several years, paired with a Krell amp and pre-amp. About a year ago, it stopped reading any inserted CD so I arranged to send it back to Krell for repair. For $335, Krell replaced the step gear and belt and returned the unit to me; problem was, it still did not work. Krell apologized, stating that it must have been damaged during shipping, sent me an RMA label and I shipped it back to Krell. A month later, I had the unit back for a second time. Still did not work. I have attempted to contact the rep at Krell 4 times and, quite surprisingly, no longer get a response.
