The Vanguard’s amplifier incorporates a massive power supply with a 750 VA toroidal transformer and 80,000 microfarads of storage capacitance. The tremendous amount of energy on tap provides 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 400 watts into 4 ohms. Two quiet, thermostatically controlled fans permit the use of a surprisingly compact chassis.

The preamplifier section of the Vanguard borrows its balanced, fully discrete Class A circuit concepts from Krell’s top-of-the-line Illusion preamplifiers. Krell’s Current Mode technology is employed to assure unequaled signal bandwidth, easily enough to handle the latest high-resolution PCM and DSD audio sources without impacting high-frequency response and detail.

Packed with many of Krell’s most musical-sounding technologies, the elegant chassis is living-room-friendly. Yet it has enough power to achieve incredible, lifelike dynamics with any speaker.

The front-panel menu system provides configuration features such as input naming and input trim. Theater Throughput mode lets the Vanguard serve as the core of a surround-sound system without sacrificing two-channel sound quality. Analog Inputs include three stereo RCA and one stereo balanced XLR. High-quality WBT speaker cable terminals provide a secure, electrically ideal connection.

The Vanguard also offers features that make it perfect for custom installation, such as 3.5mm jacks for IR input and 12-volt trigger input and output, as well as optional rack-mount ears. Additionally, the unit can be controlled with home automation systems through its Ethernet connection.

A key option for the Vanguard is the digital module, which can be added at the factory or by a dealer. The digital module includes USB, HDMI inputs and output, coax and optical digital inputs; Ethernet music streaming controlled through dedicated iOS and Android apps; and Bluetooth wireless for convenient streaming from phones, tablets and computers.

The Vanguard also offers features that make it perfect for custom installation, such as 3.5mm jacks for IR input and 12-volt trigger input and output, as well as optional rack-mount ears. Additionally, the unit can be controlled with home automation systems or the Krell web server through its Ethernet connection.

Krell

Speak to anyone who knows about high-end audio equipment and amplifiers and one of the brands that will spring to mind is Krell. For over three decades they have been at the top of the industry manufacturing amplifiers that push the boundaries as to what is possible. The KSA-100 was the first high power, high current, Class A biased stereo amplifier and was the product that launched Krell onto the market.

Since those early days Krell has continued to innovate and although their product range now goes beyond amplifiers they still remain at the core of the company’s offerings. Their product line up now includes award winning amplifiers, preamplifiers, SACD players, Blu-ray players, surround sound processors, digital-to-analogue converters and some seriously impressive loudspeakers.

If you’re looking for a high performance amplifier for your sound system or want to take your home cinema system to the next league, then a Krell amplifier is a must have addition. Get in touch today with Oxford Audio on 01865 790 879 to find out more about the Krell range of audio products.
