See my many posts on Pure Note Ceruelan. As you can see I own Krell equipment.
Sonic Genius' Reference Stereo System a/o February 2004:
Martin-Logan Prodigy speakers.
Krell FPB400cX power amp. Modified with IEC power inlet.
Krell KCT preamp.
Sony SCD-1 SACD player.
Sutherland PHD phono preamp (battery).
VPI TNT-HR-X turntable, JMW 12.5 tonearm.
Grado Statement phono cartridge.
From a lady: between Krell Kav-300CD and krc-3series2 pre, I had great results with Harmonic Technology Pro-Silway 2 XLR. There is now a Pro-Sil 3 available, but I can't currently find a supplier here in UK so haven't heard it. UK distribution, anyone know? This last week I've been burning in a Wireworld Super Eclipse 5, and after ca.100 hours the results are stunning. Neutral & well-balanced as is HTprosil, but more of pretty much everything - wider deeper stage, solider 3D imagery, wider dynamic range, and better control in dense orchestral climaxes. Bass is stronger too. Its a more demanding sound, but worth the (considerable) extra cost. So long as your amps & speakers can cope. The Pro-Sil isn't far behind though, if that's your cash limit. Oh and both cables are happy to mix with other brands. I have AQ Python from pre to power. Try a WW SE5 if you can - but give it time. (I burn mine in on a Magnum tuner.)
In my experience Purist IC are the best match for Krell. I have tried many IC's including AudioQuest, Cardas, Kimber, and Purist.
The Purist was the most open, dynamic, and tonally pure of all of them. I have replaced all the ICs I had with Purist now, but as everyone knows IC's don't make any difference!!!
I have a LOT of Krell and use the older Lindsey-Geyer interconnects. I recently tried some new much more expensive interconnects, but the L-G are still in my system.
A few years ago, I needed more, and, even though out of business, The Cable Co. made me a couple of new ones.
I still swear by them and am thankful that there is a lot of the L-G wire around.
