Krell Evolution 707

I have been looking into a highend A/V reciever to upconvert to 1080p as well as handle multiple inputs and output to the output of my choice. With all the bells and whistles of top technology. I looked at Marantz, Denon, Surefire, Onkyo, and a few others and I have ended up with the conclusion that this is the best A/V reciever currently out there. There will always be something better coming out at some point or another, but for a real home theater with the right setup this is the perfect reciever and it has every type of Audio and Video processing, but it has to be used with the highest components. I don’t even want to start quoting the technical details since I only know about 70% of the information that is being said, but it still covers the bases. As I said before it has to be justified to take something like this since the price of it is between $18’000 to $20’000. I saw the price after reading all the information about it, and it was like a shot in the foot. I won’t say its price isn’t justified, but you have to justify buying something with this type of techonolgy. If you want the best then this is it.

    OMG! thats way over the top dude
    i heard sherwood is coming out with a 6 hdmi 1080p 1.3 unit soon
    u dont need a 1080p unconverting just get a unit that would upconvert to hd so that u use one cable for the tv and the must have is an 1080P pass throu… but if you look for the near future u will have true HD sound and dolby HD i think i.e. HD sound format :)

  2. lfc-q8: I know what you mean, I have seen the sherwood too, but you have to look at the specs, I know the price is rediculous, but look at the video and audio proccessors they have included in this machine! Its insane! Its just a well made machine with all the bells and whistles, but like I said you have to have the right setup to justify it!

    without a doubt krell products are state of the art in every aspect. the price points are unreal but worth every penny providing you’ve got the rest of the system to back it up, but at $20k you’re talking another $150k+++. hell a pair of Wilson Alexandria Series 2’s will run a cool $148000/pair.
    look at some other makes too. outlaw’s 990, although a bit older now, will pass 1080i and 1080p through and upconverts all other formats, except HDMI/DVI, to 1080i via component out. and will run you about $18500 less than the krell and run neck and neck with the sherwood in all aspects. infact i think that the 990 is based on one of sherwood’s products.
