I am going to drop this now, I never said anything about price...just the term “powerhouse” that you used to describe the SN3, which I disagree with, that’s all.To keep the playing field level... to price ranges, 30% more expensive Pass integrated amp ($7500) puts out a whopping 25 wpc, or the $13,500 mono blocks which also produce 25 wpc. The $9000 60wpc IA? Are are we discussing the $12000 integrated amp 250 wpc?
Krell sure if you like that cold sound. Gives you good watts for the $. I’d rather go Hegel then Krell. Krell is just the Lexus version of Parasound IMO. But to each their own.
