Thanks for the input.
Have you tried the Krell SACD Standard? Its more in line with the KAV-400xi, and nicer for your wallet at 4000$. The Esoteric plays SACD, but both it and the Krell EVO are a full step higher than the Krell Integrated.
What are your goals? Just scoping out the joint? There are many nicely built units from 800-10k$, depending on features, build quality, and support, that will land you at a price range that you can justify. You should listen to as many as possible and determine which player(s) satisfy your needs and wants.
What is your current source?
