Rondi talks about things not being perfect and things being fine after the storm is over. For her to use these words indicates at the very least they are in serious trouble. Krell was almost the "it" brand in the 90s in the audiophile community. I never would have fathomed they'd be in this state today. But when the founder who drove the design excellence and was the face of the company leaves, there were bound to be struggles. The new D'Agostino company is Krell's heir-apparent.
