In this price range there are other options than these two amp, but if you want one, the musical fidelity is much better than the krell, except for the bass. The MF will give you much more sweetness, musicality and balance the the 300i can ever provide. You could also try for a used Plinius 8100/8200 for 1000-1400 used or a used Sim Moon I-5 for about 1300-1500. Both the Plinius and Sim will give you more refinement for the money than either the 300i or A3. If you like the Krell sound, the Sim will give it to you (bass) in a much more musical way. The Plinius is more towards the sound of a musical fidelity, but with more decay and body than than the any of the other amps mentioned can produce. Good Luck, if you have any question, feel free to email me, I have experience with all four of these amps.
