A two-wire input or output circuit. Use care
when using single-ended connections as the
ground connection is made last and broken
first. Turn the system off prior to making or
breaking single-ended connections. Single-
ended connections are not recommended for
connections requiring long cable runs.
Krell Current Mode
A proprietary Krell circuit topology in which the
audio gain stages of a component operate in
the current rather than voltage domain. This
unique technology provides the component
with exceptional speed and a wide bandwidth.
Krell Sustained Plateau Bias III
A patented microprocessor control system that
maintains Class A bias operation regardless of
musical demand. Class A bias is the most accu-
rate method used to amplify musical signals.
The new Sustained Plateau Bias III software is
featured in the Full Power Balanced X Series
amplifiers and was developed from the algo-
rithm utilized in the Master Reference Amplifier.
Sustained Plateau Bias III maximizes an ampli-
fier’s efficiency both in power consumption and
When the power switch on the back panel is
placed in the down position and the blue power
LEDs turn off, the component is off.
When the power button on the front panel is
pressed and the three blue power LEDs illumi-
nate, the component is in the operational mode
and ready to play music.
A low power consumption status that keeps the
audio and regulator circuits at idle. Krell recom-
mends leaving the component in the stand-by
mode when it is not playing music.
