Boasting technology sourced from their award winning larger siblings, the new Krell amplifiers provide the immense power and refined performance that are the hallmarks of every Krell amplifier. Sharing the same advanced high speed output devices, massive power supplies, and unique Krell Current Mode circuitry, the Evolution 2250e and 3250e amplifiers deliver performance that was previously reserved for products costing far more. The amplifiers retail for $8,000 and $10,000, respectively.
Sophisticated and expensive to execute, surface mount circuitry is featured throughout gracing the design with short circuit path lengths, vanishing parasitic capacitance and improved bandwidth. Alone, the Evolution 2250e is ideal for use in stereo music systems. When coupled to the three channel Evolution 3250e, this duo makes ideal amplification for home theater applications.
Prodigious Power Coupled To Low Energy Draw
Blessed with a power supply outfitted with a 2,500 VA power transformer and 136,000 µF of capacitance, the Evolution 2250e is a powerhouse. Power output of 250 W per channel into 8 ohms and 500 W per channel into 4 ohms will drive any loudspeaker to its full dynamic capability. The Evolution 3250e design uses the same power transformer but with additional capacitance, 163,200 µF total, insuring full performance when all three channels are being called upon simultaneously. An additional transformer for control and protection circuitry also provides power for a new energy efficient standby mode. Similar to turning off a 150W light that is always on in your house; standby power draw is only 2W. This 99% reduction in electrical usage also reduces heat output substantially. The high-current and high-voltage analog supplies have additional noise filtration circuitry to reduce high-frequency switching noise.
Smaller, Elegant Chassis
Housed in elegant silver or black brushed anodized Aluminum, the Evolution 2250e and Evolution 3250e are the smallest amplifiers in the Evolution e Series. Featuring a 4U (7” High) profile, the new amplifiers bring prodigious power to applications requiring smaller amplifiers without sacrificing sonic performance. The stylish Aluminum faceplate features the blue power ring and low draw standby mode shared by all Evolution e Series amplifiers.

Reason #43 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I've subscribed to Widescreen Review for a number of years now. Unlike any other magazine in the field, WSR offers an incredible range of excellent equipment reviews, software reviews, and articles on upcoming technologies. It never ceases to amaze me on the inside information that Gary and his gang are able to get. A perfect example of this is the excellent speakers provided on the Home Theatre Cruise! How do you do it, Gary? I use WSR to keep up on which technologies are dueling it out for high-definition supremacy and to help me prepare for my future dream home theatre. Having such insider information is proving invaluable. No other magazine I know of helps to shape the industry it serves in such a positive way. Long live WSR! - Doug Burke
