IC: Krell KAV-500i 110volt - greatest bass for K1000! - Page 2

post #16 of 47
Thread Starter 
I don't have the P300 Power Plant for sale anymore, I need it for my Benchmark DAC1.

I'm still selling the Krell, it's still beside my bed ready to ship!

I'm too poor to pay $6 for Audiogon ad every month, it's like throwing money in toilet... I need cash so I can buy more ERS Paper! If I sell the Krell, I'm buying a whole roll of it!

I got response and it's $5500 for a roll of ERS Paper, I don't have enough even if I sell the Krell.
Maybe I should keep the Krell instead of sell it almost for free, it's worth much more than I'm selling it for even when I'm not using it. I'm still impressed of the crazy bass even though I haven't listened to it for almost a year!

The rings around the pillars are little uneven but it's the pressure of the springs that matters. There needs to be equal pressure on all springs, and it needs to be balanced with different amount of springs depending on how the weight is distributed on the top. It's not that important anyway.

In that picture I used 6 springs total. You can use up to 3 springs per pillar.

Just to let everyone know, I don't have enough money to ship the Krell out until after 11 days. I need all the cash for Magix and ERS Paper!

Need cash!

I had planned to make a secondary system (craziest bass) with the Krell but my Premier Power Plant blew up and I need cash to repair it.
I have the Krell for sale again!

Bass is strong

It is weird that I'm still daydreaming about the bass of the Krell. Bass is so strong that after a year I still hear it...

I think you scared people off buying your krell because you posted your soldering pics on this forum.

Krell makes really great stuff.

I haven't opened up the Krell. I put it in a box before I started mutilating all my other gear.

Sorry for ze Swedish.

Oi, du råkar inte vilja sänka priset lite, till ca... tja, 10k SEK, skämtar, men hur mycket tar du för den i Svenska? :P Och hur pluggar man denna till väggen, då den är 110V (dum fråga, men förklara lite vidare, tack)?

12 650 SEK

You can convert 220volts into 110volts when using a step-down transformer, it's the cheapest way.

But the best way is to use a P300 Power Plant, but since the P300 can only handle 300 watts you can't use big speakers with the Krell. But K1000 earspeakers works great.

I have an extra P300 Power Plant (modded to extreme) and an extra pair of K1000. If you buy them all, you can get discount.


My modded P300 doesn't look pretty though. You could temporarily get a step-down transformer now and later get a P300 from Audiogon. But the shipping cost from USA is many hundred and with import taxes it's double the price.

I have a 50cm Nordost Valhalla power cord soldered to the input of P300 Power Plant, 20cm of the Valhalla comes out from the rear and it's long enough to reach the wall outlet if there are isolation feet under the P300.

I also have Solid-tech Feet of Silence you could get for a discount.


I have all these for sale, I can give HUGE discount, shipping is cheap when sending inside Sweden.

Krell KAV-500i
AKG K1000 earspeakers
P300 Power Plant with MultiWaveII and MultiWaveII+
50cm Nordost Valhalla power cord (modded 1 conductor, ERS Paper, Oyaide Schuko)
1.5m xStream Statement power cord
Solid-tech Feet of Silence
Solid-tech Rack of Silence
Nordost Valkyrja homemade interconnects

It's a whole setup except for the source.
If you don't have enough cash, you can pay little every month. I want you to hear this setup, it sounds amazing. I will pay you 5000 SEK if you make a review of this combo.

I definitely don't have enough cash, I only have 7k *now*, I put aside roughly 2k every month though. Is that enough for you? So, I guess that's one heck of a setup, and yes I'm interested in it. How much for all of the goodness?

(Also, I *guess* that I could take a small loan for it if you want)

And yes, of course I'd make a review of your rig.

One last thing, I have no doubt that it sounds gooood, but whats the sound signature like?

It sounds like bass on steroids! Huge bass with huge speed.

You won't have a problem with the signature because when using the Multiwave settings of the Power Plant you can choose the sound signature. MWave1 makes it sound brighter, and MWave4 makes it sound darker with more bass. They are the opposites. You can also use the TubeWave setting which makes it sound smooth like tubes. MWave2 is a smoother version of MWave1. But the best setting is MWave4, it makes the bass crazy fast.

Krell gives lot of bass which is a great match for K1000. xStream Statement power cord also makes everything heavier. MWave4 and Feet of Silence make the bass faster and heavier. Feet of Silence also gives more transparency, detail, solidness, blackness and quietness.

Sounds great to me, it sure is a step up from my speakers! But are the 2k per month okay for you (otherwise I'd have to arrange a loan)?

Also, where do you live? I happen to go (by car) to the STHLM area next weekend. If you live anywhere near there maybe I could pick 'em up at the same time?

Also, you wouldn't have MSN or anything? Easier to communicate through that than this forum. :>
