I used a Pass Labs Aleph P for many years with several Krell Power Amps with great results. The X2.5 is a decent pre-amp but I found that the Aleph P was a better pre-amp in my system. I now have a Pass Labs Xp 10 which is much better than both the Aleph P, X1, and the X2.5. I have tied many different Krell power amps in my system, but not an EVO 302. I got try an Evo 402 and it did not sound as good in my system as my current amp, a Pass Labs X350.5. I hear that the EVO 302 is sonically much better than the EVO 402. A freind who is a Krell dealer said he liked the EVO 302 better than the EVO 402. The output voltage, output gain, and the input impedance are all very similar between all the Pass Labs and Krell pre-amps and they are all very compitable.
