Further information: Krell FPB 400 CX power amp for sale. 

 
I have been using it for just over a year and has been a very engaging and gives life to the music and best bass I’ve heard in my system is through these. 
 

On the front, it has 3 LEDs and one of them does not glow some times, as shown in the picture, otherwise, it is in great condition. The LED does not affect the sound in any way.  
 

if not for a significant upgrade, I would have kept it.


I don’t have boxes for it, so local pickup only at this stage.

 

Any questions, please let me know.

I've been getting a lot of queries regarding the LED. Other than the light, I haven't heard any issues i.e. there is no difference, when all three are on vs only two.

 

I am planning to get it checked this week.

 

So on hold for now.

 

If anyone knows a Sydney based Technician who can check this Krell out, please PM me.

 

Thanks.

Len Wallis Audio in Lane Cove would be an option surely. The top led is obviously for standby mode, left led indicates the bias control is ok, right indicates power regulation is ok, i think. I believe that if there is any problem with these systems that the relays will not open and the amp won’t function. So it should just be a prob with the led or it’s connection. Still should be checked. If i didn’t have a financial shocker last week i’d have already driven all the way from Ulladulla to buy it. Best of luck!

I wonder what type of mains plug it has.

20 amp C19. The factory cable is quite robust and appears to be a higher gauge wire than standard cables.

The power cable if fixed at the back..so can’t be removed/changed..

 

Had a US plug, which I replaced with the help of an electrician to AU furutech.

Yes, according to the pics the power cord is attached to the amp. What I was wondering is, what sort of plug is on the other end, i.e. what kind of power outlet is required?

I’m guessing 15A?

Silly me, that is clearly visible in the pictures. My previous Krell had a 20 amp C19 IEC on the back so I made an assumption.

This is pretty well the best range of Krell amps I've heard. The bottom right Led indicates the regulator is applying power to the output. Should turn off after a while. Well worth the money even if you have to get it recapped.

I'd take it to LWA for service before Chris.

Thanks, taking it over to LWA tomorrow.

I have a dedicated 30A (remember the electrician mentioning it to me) line for music, however, the wall socket looks like the 10A. 

 

Before I had the dedicated line whenever the washing machine or dryer is on, I wont be able to listen to music, as it will pause for a second and then play again...which after the dedicated line went away.

Did I miss something above?  Why did it originally have a US plug?  Was it originally a 110V unit?  

Not sure how was it, but it is called out at 240v at the back of the amp, however it had US plugs..

Some were imported by the importer as 240v 50hz but had to have the power plugs changed.

This amp was purchased from classA audio.  I assume it was a US import.  The plug was left as a US plug as it was beautiful big solid construction.  Rather than change the plug from the way Krell made it just use a consonance power board.  
 

I can say it’s a VERY good amp.  When I last saw it it was in great condition.  All the caps were good.  I assume one of the trademark Krell blue LED’s is on the way out but it should be good otherwise.

      "A superbly made product that produces superb sound" - Michael Fremer, Stereophile

      Stereophile Class A Recommended Component
       
      Current model - rrp  $7990 The manual, alternative impedance cards and extra high quality resistors are included. Use the preselected impedance jumpers or make your own custom jumpers with supplied cards and resistors.  
      Review:
      "The Audia Flight Phono combined pitch-black backgrounds and world-class dynamic presentation with a clean, ultrafast top end and a taut, well-extended bottom end." Stereophile Class A Recommended Component

      "...nothing but sonic pleasure... the Flight Phono produced music out of what subjectively sounded like an even blacker backdrop, and probably partly because of that, its soundstage presentation was among the most transparent, deep, and three-dimensional I've heard from any phono stage."
      MF - Stereophile

      A separate power supply, dedicated input preamplifier boards, high gain (74dB maximum) and low noise are only a few of its characteristics.

      The separate power supply was chosen to improve the shield of the preamp and to reduce the vibrations and resonance from the transformers to zero.
       
      Power supply
      The Audia Flight Phono Preamp's power supply is separate from the preamp chassis. A 50VA toroidal transformer supplies the analogue stages. On it is placed the first power supply (+/- 38V).
      Inside the separate power supply there is a 15VA toroidal transformer as well, to supply the relays and logic control. Previous user selections are stored in memory. To receive the commands from the pushbutton of the preamp chassis without electrical connections, several opto-isolators are used.

      There is also a low noise MOSFET power supply (+/-28V) on the preamp chassis for the second gain stage and another power supply for the first gain stage (+/- 15V). Thus, there are six power supplies in total!
       
      Preamp
      The Audia Flight Phono Preamp is based on Audia Flight's current feedback philosophy. The MC and MM input preamp boards are different, because MC and MM cartridges have different electrical characteristics. The MC preamp board is a transistor input preamp with 64 dB of gain. The MM preamp board is a differential transistor input stage with 40dB of gain. Both have low noise and low offset output. On both input boards, the impedance selectors are close to the input stage and are made by professional gold jumpers. Custom resistors can also be used for precise cartridge matching from the rear panel.

      After the first gain stage is the input selector, which is made with gold contact relays. Following this is the RIAA filter in passive configuration. It is made with 1% polypropylene and polystyrene capacitors. In this position, it's possible to select a subsonic IEC filter as well.

      The second gain output stage, which is completely redesigned, has improved speed and signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio. The second gain stage is switchable from 24 dB to 34 dB and has a balanced XLR output.

      A mono selector is an important element in achieving the best sound while using a stereo cartridge to play a mono record. The Audia Flight Preamp's mono selector sums the left and right channels together in the same manner as a mono cartridge would, which provides improved sonic performance.

      The Preamp board features DC offset protection; if there is an offset voltage, this feature will protect the unit and all others connected to it.
       
      Information:
      Gain MC 64 dB + 10 dB (74 dB in total) / MM 44 dB + 10 dB (54 dB in total) Frequency response (1Wrsm, -3db) 5Hz - 120 KHz THD <0.05% S/N ratio >90dB “A” weighted RIAA accuracy +/- 0.1 dB Channel Unbalance <0.04 dB Stereo separation >95 dB @ 10 KHzMC input impedance from 7 ohm to 980 ohm in eight steps plus a custom resistor value MM input impedance from 47pF to 600 pF in twelve steps plus a custom capacitor value Output impedance All outputs 500 ohm Phase Non inverted Maximum consumption 65WDimensions and weight 420x92x330mm (WxHxD), 10.5 Kg Original Box not included

      This particular unit has been upgraded with all the electrolytic caps replaced,standard RCA sockets replaced with gold plated ones,wiring to the RCA sockets has been replaced with 99.9999% pure copper,all the op amps have new gold plated sockets fitted,old TL071 op amps have been replaced with a modern LM4562 op amps.With the sockets fitted it is easy to try other op amps to tailor the sound to the individuals taste.Internally the unit is very clean,all lights and controls work perfectly with no noise or scratchiness.The working condition of the unit is excellent.
      Cosmetically it has some wear and tear consistent with the age of the unit.Some light sratches on top and bottom and small chips here and there.Some paint worn on the volume control(see pics).The fascia panel is good and the back panel is also good.Could possibly be repainted to make it look like new again.
