    is this the amp?

    http://www.krellonline.com/krell_com...4&page=kav3250

    thats only a 3 channel amp.

    Krell stuff is top notch though. If you can get another two channels in there, awesome for home theater.

    Krell isn't bad...

    I personally never liked the Krell sound, especially with my system, but it might work really well with your def techs...

    Krell is a very good brand. If you like the sound and can afford it, then go for it. With their build quality you'll have it for many many years.

    Krell makes quality equipment. Sounds sterile to me though. A lot of people will tell you amps don't have a particular "sound", I am not one of those people. If you are getting a great deal, go for it. If not, I'd look at audiogon because I think you can get a lot better for the MSRP of that amp.

    well he said my amp plus 2 grand im almost sure i am going to get it but it is allot of money more then what i paid for my rotel.

    btw i am one of those who know each amp has its own sound. at least it does in every car audio amp ive mesed with.

    Sterile is exactly what they sound like. I would get a used Naim or Classe before I would buy that....

    well from what i heard in a comparision both the def tech's and the 703 b&w are a little on the bright side dunno if you will agree with me so if you think classe will sound better with b&ws then im guessing they should sound better with the def techs

    to me the rotel did help sq in certain ways but mostly it just made my setup louder. and me i really dont want it to be louder i just want more of a warm sound. i heard mcintosh is the way to go for that but those amps are pricy.

    thats why i was asking you if i should change my tweeters but like you said and many others its not worth it.

    Re: thoughts on krell amps?

    looking at mcintosh theirs nothing that i want that i can afford unless im missing something that is a 3 or 5 channel amp all i see is stereo and 7 channel amp

    and classe looks good to but another amp that wont fit in my new stand. i wouldn't mind that to much since my amp right now isnt in the stand. im not even sure if the place where i bought my rotel carries classe and b&w by sterile what do you mean?

    If you want better SQ, I'd be replacing speakers before I'd searching for
    the Holy Grail SQ amplifier. You have to reason this out logically. Speakers
    are electro+mechanical where the mechanical nature represents a big sonic
    gremlin. Amplifiers are just electrical, no mechanical gremlins. This is the secret
    to audio success, but you can be like everyone else and keep buying amps
    until you get old and gray searching for hidden magic in spite that amplifier
    topology hasn't really changed much in 20 years.

    Flat with out excitement. Clean with out being revealing. Dynamic with out the WOW....

    The 700 Series new out of the box is a bit bright, but it evolves into a revealing open sound which is a very acquired tastes.

    Speakers are going to make a much bigger difference in the scope of things.
