My new speakers will probably be Dynaudio, Polk Audio LSi15's or Gallo Nucleus 3 in the next couple months. I'm looking for a beefier SS intergrated as an upgrade over my existing i5080 SimAudio. I'm also looking for an amp with the same feature as my current amp, one with Home Theatre by-pass to allow for a HT receiver to be connected.
Power is of importance. All my speaker choices require higher current designs. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
The Krell 400xi has what you are looking for. 200 wpc into 8 ohms, doubles down into 4 ohms. Plus HT bypass. Clear, detailed and plenty of bass slam. Only knock is its revealing nature. The sound is very recording quality dependent.
