The KRC-2 was the next best thing after the two chassis KRC preamp and for about $2,000 less, was the more affordable alternative for the audiophile who wanted an almost similar sounding unit but don’t want to splurge that extra $2k. Both achieved Stereophile recommended status and in its day was hailed as state of the art and one of the best sounding preamps money can buy. There is this transparency and lucidity in the KRC preamps that just sets it apart from other preamps. Unit was completely checked out, re-capped and bias back to its original factory specs by Krell’s authorized service center in NYC. No expense was spared to restore this masterpiece from Krell so this unit will provide many more years of wonderful service and sound for the new owner.
Cosmetically, the unit looks good. Minor scuff marks here and there and a very tiny nick on the top left edge of the faceplate. Original remote included. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack it for safe shipping.
