KRELL SHOWCASE PDF

Much is made of the intense competition that goes on in the receiver game, and understandably so. For the most part, these are companies that have piles of money to spend on advertising, have the resources and inclination to bring out new models every year, and have hordes of accountants and marketing types to keep watch on things likemarket placement, pricing, competitor activity, and so on. But what about the healthy and growing competition in the separates arena, especially at the lower all things being relative price points? It may not draw the receiver war's headlines, involve a fraction of the corporate expenditure and model turnover, or feature dueling laser shows from multilevel booths at industry trade shows. But, make no mistake, the competition here is no less intense, no less important to the industry as a whole, and no less beneficial to its particular crop of potential buyers.

But what about the healthy and growing competition in the separates arena, especially at the lower all things being relative price points? It may not draw the receiver war's headlines, involve a fraction of the corporate expenditure and model turnover, or feature dueling laser shows from multilevel booths at industry trade shows.

But, make no mistake, the competition here is no less intense, no less important to the industry as a whole, and no less beneficial to its particular crop of potential buyers. So, when I talk about something like Krell's new 7.

Performance should always hold the final sway, but there's no denying that features wield considerable influence in a competitive market. The Showcase supplies no less than nine proprietary music-processing modes, with a number of different channel configurations and sound profiles. There's also an interesting room-equalization feature that lets you use three discrete parametric bands to adjust frequency response.

The four adjustable parameters are filter type, frequency, shape, and level. The current system operates on the seven main channels, but Krell is due to add sub control, as well. Four EQ setup memories will save every parameter for every filter on each channel.

You can adjust the filters globally or individually and save configurations for different source materials. The system's effectiveness for you naturally depends on your stance on equalizers: Some people swear by them, while others avoid them religiously. Either way, the Showcase has you covered.

The Showcase's inputs and outputs are comprehensive. There's also an eight-channel analog input, several two-channel analog inputs including a balanced pair , and two analog outputs.

Four coax and four optical digital inputs are included, as well. Video connections include three high-bandwidth component ins and one out, four S-video ins and two outs, and four composite ins and two outs. There are also four volt triggers and an RS jack that you can use for, among other things, flash software upgrades. Notably absent are accommodations for extra zones, which the Showcase processor doesn't support. Balanced capability highlights the Showcase 7 amp's back panel, as well.

There's also heavy-duty five-way binding posts and unbalanced RCA connections. Power is rated at watts per channel into 8 ohms, doubling to watts into 4 ohms. A 1,watt toroidal transformer and 80, microfarads of capacitance handle the juice, while Class A input, pre-driver, and driver stages handle the signals. At home, the first thing that grabbed me with two-channel material was these components' highly dynamic, immediate nature.

Between the Energy tweeter's uncompromising nature and the Krell gear's unwillingness to artificially soften sources, poorly recorded material—especially on CD—had nowhere to hide. A combination like this is risky, but it's a risk you have to take if you demand fidelity above all else. Some of your source material is going to sound rough, raw, and even abrasive, especially if your room is as uncompromising as your gear. Search form Search. Log in or register to post comments.

Krell Showcase 5 5 Channel Amplifier

Often, that search results in separates: a separate processor and amplifier. Krell has introduced the Showcase line. This line incorporates many of the attributes of their up-market Standard line, but at a much lower cost, and at the expense of very few features. The Showcase line currently consists of the 7. For this review, I received the Showcase Processor and 6-channel Showcase Amplifier also available in 5-, or 7-channel.

Krell Showcase Surround 8 Channel Pre-Amp/Processor Amplifier

Together with Stereo Exchange. While the video capabilities of this piece are outdated, the Showcase is still an an amazing audio processor for both your 7. It also has a preamp button that instantly turns this unit into a high-quality two channel preamp, bypassing all the unnecessary bits. Fully tested in our lab and working as it should. A few light scratches on the case but nothing very serious.
