With all do respect there are a lot of assumptions your making . I’m a Mcintosh guy not Krell but it is better when you don’t know something and none of us really do don’t make stuff up.

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.

This thread describing key departures and new beginnings just underscores my belief that the foundation of every company is the people that come together to make it what it is.

I donít want to speculate Tom. I continue to receive their newsletter in the email with regular frequency. The holiday special mentioned 40% off discounts on trade in towards new models and 25% off refurbishing services. That doesnít tell me anything about their financial state though. Itís been a long time since Iíve purchased any Krell gear and I certainly donít have any future plans of adding any Krell gear. I hope they stay in business, itís always sad to see the names we have been accustomed to seeing over the decades of being in this hobby disappear.

I still have a Krell Showcase Processor that I purchased used 10 years ago. Never a problem and have no desire to change. Use it strictly for movies. Looking at all the modern AVR's and processors and all the problems they have I'll take my Krell. They were built to last.

People, products, and process. That's basically what makes a business.

It's especially hard with company who's driven by a single person.
