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.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Sydney State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on pickup Reason for selling: NLR Further information: For sale is this quality and compact streaming amplifier with many features.
       
      It is fully functional as you need it with the Yamaha Musiccast App. Streaming services, Bluetooth (2way) Airplay etc. Has optical input as well as analog in and out, subwoofer out and in and out 12v triggers. Very solid build, comes with remote. 
       
      I bought it new early last year and not long after switched to a Yamaha AV receiver for surround, so it hasn’t had much use. 
       
      All original packaging as new.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Sydney State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on pickup Reason for selling: NLR Further information: For sale is my Cambridge Audio Solo MM preamp in excellent condition. 
       
      I used it for a short time while before I bought an amplifier with a built in phono stage, so now finally selling this.
       
      It has been well reviewed and features a built in low noise power supply. You can upgrade the power cable. 
       
      This is an excellent phono stage for the money IMHO.
       
      I bought this on SNA after the original owner upgraded not long after buying it from Eastwood hifi. I have listened for about 10 hours.

      Item Condition: Good Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Perth State: WA Payment Method: Reason for selling: Too big for my room Further information:
       
      I bought the speakers just before the beginning of the plague last year from Old Bloke and shipped them to WA . 
      The were custom made for JB ( John Barbuto) in the late 70ies. The cabinets are walnut veneered and up to 60 mm thick which contributes to their immense weight of approximately 150 kg each. The built quality is way beyond any usual commercial product.
      the drivers are:
      2215 15” woofers
      2420 compression drivers
      2309 horns with 2327 adapter and 2310 lens and
      2405 slot tweeters.
      all drivers are alnico. 
      Dimensions are 58 cm deep, 73 cm wide and 118 cm high.
      Despite the physical appearance they play very civilised with loads of details and impressive room even in my way too small room with 20 quality valve watts. Especially at low volumes you will get a very satisfying complete sound. You can also crank them off course until the doctor comes but there is a limit for my room , it just gets a bit overload with bass at higher levels. 
      this and the size are the reasons why I’m looking for something else.
      They work well with valves but should also with good SS amps. The previous owner used Metaxas amplification. 
      Old Bloke gave them a nice Schellack treatment before they came to me so they are looking good if you like the look of big proper speakers. I kept the protective grill over the woofers for the occasional dancing kid in my music room but they would certainly look better without.
      I thought of getting an autoformer network for them from Werner Jagusch which should bring them even further but I decided for a smaller solution. 
      I cannot see any other speaker for that price with this sort of build and sound quality and you are welcome to come and listen. I don’t know whether they work with low powered amps although sensitivity is high but you can bring your amp to try. 
      Audition is possible after the lockdown!
