Receivers, Tuners, and Integrated Amps: Stereo Receivers/Integrated Amplifiers: Krell KAV-400xi


The Krell's KAV-400xi is a powerful integrated amplifier. Power output is an impressive 200W into 8 ohms/400W into 4 ohms. The KAV-400xi has enormous strengths in many areas as well as accompanying and unavoidable trade-offs.

Krell KAV-400xi review


From a company used to making amps you need a mortgage to buy comes this ‘budget' version. Have corners been cut?

Krell’s KAV-400xi is great. For power and refinement, it’s hard to beat.

This review is based upon the 300iL the twin of the 400xi minus the selector knob. I have also posted a more extensive review under the 300iL link. Do not believe the Krell detractors. These units at the prices that you can get them for are a steal....
