Built Solid, Incredible Sound and Priced Right!
Cool Slot-Load Design with Huge Power Supplies, Burr Brown DACs, and Current-Mode Analog Output Stage
Great sound always starts at the source and Krell's S-350a CD Player really delivers great sound in spades. Designed to cosmetically and sonically complement Krell's outstanding S-300i integrated amp, the S-350a CD Player delivers the drive and slam Krell is known for, with the finesse and delicacy which has garnered the S-Series so much acclaim.
Krell made the best of what was
clearly a well-conceived recording
and performance, by adding a
sense of air and presence that
other replay systems often fail
to resolve. This is the difference
between plain good sound
quality and a performance (with
the emphasis on that word) that
causes the hairs to rise on the
back of the neck."
Krell's S-350a is a bit different than most CD players, the most visible difference is the slot-loading mechanism. After extensive testing, Krell found that this type of mechanism eliminates the tiny errors caused by CD drawer vibration. The transport mechanism is sourced from Esoteric/TEAC, so its one of the world's best! The S-350a uses a fully balanced, Burr-Brown 24-bit/192kHz DAC chipset fed directly into a customized Krell Current Mode analog output stage. This gives the S-350a incredible dynamics, excellent detail and a big, rich sound unlike any other CD player on the market.
In Krell fashion, the S-350a has an enormous power supply. Look inside, you might be fooled into thinking this is an amplifier! The custom wound toroidal transformer, ten times larger than typical designs, provides excellent voltage stability, tremendous current reserves and assures low noise in the analog output stage. This allows the S-350a to reveal more subtle detail, you'll hear things you've never heard before in every disc! 100% Music Direct Money Back Guaranteed!
"The S-350a speaks for itself. This is
a straightforward practical player
that supports balanced audio and is
well-enough endowed to drive
compact disc a long way towards the
limits of the format."
