I listened to set of the Magnepan 1.7 with a Krell S300i at my friend's audio store and I thought it sounded great. I have listened to many systems that cost many times more than the S300I and the Magnepan 1.7s. I would rank this combo in the top 4 or 5. Be sure to get good cabling because the better the equipment the more revealing of poor items in the chain and that is where I see a lot of systems fall short.
The Krell should be able to drive about anything; find speakers that you like the sound of, don't worry about the Krell, it is not sensitive to speaker types or impedance's in the way some amps are. It is a much better amp than the Denon and reveals the deficiencies of the Polks that the Denon hides.Get the best you can afford, the Krell will be up to them.
Thats for the feedback. In response to Dmastri, I would prefer full range speakers. I should have mentioned the budget, (the reality check) which is up to say, $5K.
I agree with the comment that Krell will reveal weaknesses that the Denon could not. I thought if anything, the sound stage seems thinner especially in the lower end of the mid-range.
Looking forward to more comments.
