Krell evo 202.

The powersupply and the preamp is standing on top of each other. They are built that way.
Anyone experienced any differences in sound if they stand on top of each other with origianal feet ore with other feet or if they stand separated?

Very substantial improvement if you can place the preamp unit on a separate shelf instead of resting on top of the psu unit (shelf distance needs to be within the umbilical power cord's length though). Further improvement if the preamp unit is isolated on a good footer (such as Boston Audio Design tuneblock) instead of resting on its stock rubber feet.

I have a 222 Evo pre and I'm so happy to use it everyday in couple with a 302 in cast mode. I think Phantom's serie is a re-name of 2x2's serie and Krell had added one reference.

Apexorca, you have a nice picture! Do you have one of your system?

Thanks Yannick!

I try to hide the equipment as much as I can. MSB needs some handling, therefore it's uncovered on top.

The remote goes through the doors.

Here you go. Pictures.

Sweet system indeed!

Mr Froggy 05-11-2013 11:54 AM

Nice system!!

How do you use your speakers with the both system, stereo and multichannel?

Thank you!
And maybe the best of all, my wife thinks it┤s ok too.

Mr Froggy:
I use my 2-channel set up in theatre through put on Krell evo 202 when we watch movies and Tv. So I only use the preamp from the surroundreciever for the front speakers. The front speakers takes part in everything. I think it's a common way to integrate a multichannel system in a dedicated 2 channel system.

The center speaker slides forward to sound better. (A box in a box does not sound well...)

How warm/hot does your amp run?
