Other Notes: "I feel the KBL belongs at the top of Stereophile's Class A. As did Krell's KSA-250 power amp, I feel the KBL to redefine the term "neutrality." Dynamic and transparent, this preamp is faithful to the musical material, revealing a recording's best and worst aspects. This is definitely not the preamp for the audiophile more interested in sonic spectacle than musical honesty. Such honesty comes at a price, however, which may be too much for some listeners. Even I, who place musical accuracy above all else, sometimes find such merciless transparency distracting. But if you consider live music your ultimate reference, and want to hear your recordings without any added colorations or editorialization, the Krell KBL is the best of the best." - Lewis Lipnick, Stereophile
