What else to know about the Krell FPB 200?

A note from Dan D’Agostino to purchasers of the FPB-200 Thank you for your purchase of a Full Power Balanced amplifier. This component has been designed to exceed all other amplifier products in ultimate performance, musicality, and overall durability. I am sure that it will give you manyears of superior performance. Some of the features that make this Full Power Balanced amplifier unique include: Kreil Current ModeTM: This advanced circuit topology is a KRELL introduction to the audio industry and yields a far greater degree of speed and stage presence than is possible through conventional technologies’. Fully Regulated Output Stage: One of the most obvious causes of musical corruption in an amplifier is voltage and current drop in the output stage. While the large capacitive banks used by other manufacturers are marginally effective with current drop, capacitors cannot compensate for voltage drop. A Full Power Balanced amplifier’s regulated output stage and power supply is impervious to these forms of corruption. Current and voltage remain constant under all operating conditions. Balanced Amplifier Design: Your Full Power Balanced amplifier incorporates completely balanced circuit topology from input to output, maintaining the integrity of the audio signal and exercising greater speaker control by means of its balanced, push-pull relationship with the speaker drivers. Class A Operation: Class A is the only linear operating state in electronics. Your Full Power Balanced amplifier operates in Class A to its full rated power to provide the most accurate and richly detailed musical experience possible. Sustained Plateau Bias II: Sustained Plateau Bias II is a KRELL patented process that enables your amplifier to play all music (up to full rated power) in Class A, yet greatly reduce the heat dissipation and energy consumption associated with conventional Class A designs. Sustained Plateau Bias II is a true Class A circuit, as opposed to sliding or adaptive biasing schemes. The Full Power Balanced amplifier follows all classic KRELL manufacturing and materials requirements and I am sure that you will not find its equal anywhere in the world. Enjoy your KRELL Full Power Balanced Amplifier.

When I introduced the Krell FPB 200 to the system I found that everything was overall more satisfying for me. If felt I had the benefits of the BATs (smoothness, sound stage, musicality) and the benefits of the ML’s greater resolution and detail. While I am sure in comparison to some other amps, I will find that the FPB 200 has some weaknesses, I have not felt it lacking in any way.

Brief History of McIntosh

Long mapped-to Binghamton New York – the current headquarters and manufacturing center for Krell Labs – not many people know the brand was originally launched outside of the Nation’s Capital in Silver Spring Maryland, in 1949. In 1956, the brand built their original facility in New York, according to the official brand website.
