It’s the tail end of winter, but Krell is already heating things up in its product line, announcing plans to start shipping its S-550i Integrated Amplifier.

The new amp is building on the success of Krell’s S-300i, but cranks the power up to 275 watts of output.

Promising to work with just about any speaker, the S-550i is compact enough for almost any space. However, it does pack in balanced and single-ended inputs, an iPod dock, and Krell’s Theater Throughput mode for integrating with home theater systems.

Preamp highlights include the Krell Current Mode, direct-coupled circuitry, discrete circuitry, and more. The amp also has 1,750-watt transformer and 68,000μF of capacitance. Other features include 12-volt triggers, RS-232 connectivity, and rack mount ears. The S-550i can also be customized on the front panel menu or via the included brushed aluminum remote control.

Krell is now shipping the S-550i Integrated Amplifier in silver and black finishes, with an MSRP of $5,000.

Krell amplifiers are second to absolutely no one. However, the “Made in China” not usual found on Krell products is an interesting thing. Wonder if the other new products will be “handcrafted” overseas rather than in Orange. A two-tier production seems to be the trend for companies that want to stay in business: produce your best stuff here, import the cheaper things.
