Krell Foundation Upgrade; The Best Just Getting Better!

Krell Foundation Monaco AV Authorized DealerWe are excited to announce the addition of DSD decoding to the Foundation processor. The DSD decoding firmware supports stereo and multichannel recordings via any of the 10 HDMI inputs. Playback options include DSD 2-ch Direct, DSD Stereo, and DSD Multi modes. DSD 2-ch Direct converts a stereo DSD signal to analog and directly passes it to the left and right analog outputs. DSD Stereo first applies any left and right channel crossover configured in the Foundation menu, converts the signal to analog, and then sends it to the left and right outputs. DSD Multi supports multichannel DSD recordings and utilizes all crossovers configured in the Foundation menu. There is no configuration required as the Foundation automatically recognizes a DSD signal and defaults to the last used DSD mode for playback. Pressing the mode button on the remote control or web server interface will cycle through all three DSD modes.

All existing Foundation processors can be upgraded to DSD decoding but have to be returned to Krell for this additional feature. There is no charge for this upgrade other than shipping. Please contact us to set up your Foundation upgrade

For those interested in the Foundation 4K upgrade coming later this summer, there is still availability on this limited offer. The DSD decoding capability will be added as part of the Foundation 4K upgrade. Details of the Foundation 4K upgrade are below.

The new Foundation 4K will have a retail of $7,500. Upgrades to the Foundation 4K will have regular price of $2,500.

Special offer: We are offering a special price of $1,000 to the first 250 Foundation customers who sign up and prepay for the upgrade. Price includes free return ground shipping in the US. Upgrades will be performed at Krell starting this summer and will be completed in the order received.

Extra Bonus: Customers purchasing the Foundation 4K upgrade will also receive a coupon for 10% savings on the purchase of a Chorus 5200 or Chorus 7200 power amplifier at Monaco AV, a Krell Authorized Dealer.

To place your orders now please stop by our Pasadena store or for any questions, please call 626-395-9597 ! LIMITED TIME OFFER

Unboxing Krell Chorus 5200Krell Chrous 5200 out of the boxKrell Foundation Chorus Monaco AVKrell Foundation Chrous Home Theater Los AngelesKrell Foundation Chorus KEF R500 Home TheaterKrell Foundation Chorus KEF home theater Los Angeles

Today we finally received our Krell® newest IBias™ Class A amp, the Chorus 5200. We unpacked the amp and gosh, it is very heavy. We decided to set up this Krell Chorus5200 in the rack along with our Krell Foundation and while we are waiting for our KEF The Reference™, we decided to use our KEF R500 floor standing and KEF R200C center channel for time being.

We ran the Krell  ARES™ room set up and did some advance crossover adjustment using our Sencore Pro calibration tool. Finally, we test the system using the Transformers III movie and the sound is UNBELIEVABLE.

Monaco® is an authorized dealer for KRELL® and KEF®. All music and movie lovers  in Los Angeles & Pasadena area are invited to experience this amazing system.

KEF THE REFERENCE & BLADE 2

KEF Reference & Blade II

KEF THE REFERENCE: the standard by which others are judged, and to which they aspire.

The perfect reproduction of recorded sound is what KEF’s legendary Reference Series has always stood for. And after 30 years of continuous development, the Reference has earned its name as the yardstick of high-end acoustic engineering.
If you’re a perfectionist when it comes to enjoying movies or music, it’s the one name that towers above the rest.
With five models – two elegant three-way floorstanders (Reference 5 & Reference 3), a formidable three-way bookshelf speaker (Reference 1), a three-way centre channel (Reference Center) and an awesome 1000-watt sub (Reference Sub) – The Reference range combines benchmark high fidelity with complete multichannel versatility. And as you’d expect, they all exude the sense of sheer quality that comes from being hand built by KEF’s master technicians in Maidstone, Kent.
The Reference. It speaks for itself.
