I really havent heard much of the Krell brand but maybe its because im not an huge audiophile. I just searched up some of their components and a subwoofer or amp could easily go in to the 2-3k range.Nobody has heard the KRELL system that acura dropped bose for?????
I guess you can compare that a small fine dining restaurant to a huge franchise thats well marketed with commercials.Go on some audiophile forums, they absolutely thrash Bose. Bose does a lot to manipulate sound that isn't considered ideal in the audio community. It is also overly expensive and not worth as much as they cost. The one thing the agree on is that they have an amazing marketing department. They are the apple of audio. They are good but not great, but most people think they are.
Krell, on the other hand is a company that is small but is considered a top audio company. They just aren't well known but absolutely kill Bose.
