Krell, Theater Amplifier Standard, 5 Channel Amplifier - SOLD
The Theater Amplifier Standard (TAS) is one of Krell's biggest multi-channel amps. It provides substantial 5-channel output power that creates realistic sound stage while preserving accurate and compelling musicality. In utilizing the Current Mode technology, the audio gain stages of the TAS are performed in the current, rather than in the voltage domain. The result is increased speed and detail.
Normally, the TAS produces 200 WPC x 5 channels into 8 Ohm (400 W into 4 Ohm). While bridged, you get two 800 W channels into 8 Ohm and a 200 W channel for the center.
In addition, Krell’s Multi Amp Throughput allows you to connect one channel to the amplifier’s balanced or single-ended input and have that signal distributed to all five channels. This feature would be helpful for some whole-house audio applications, especially those installing high performance in-wall loudspeakers.
Power is supplied by two massive 2kV toroidal power transformers (4kV total).
