Legendary European recording studio selects Krell Evolution 400e as reference amplifier.
After a six month evaluation period that included extensive listening trials of the industry’s leading amplifiers, Wisseloord Studios selected five Krell Evolution 400e monaural amplifiers for their new cutting‐edge mastering studio.
“We are very proud that Wisseloord Studios selected our amplifiers for their reference system. To be recognized by an organization as well respected for sound quality as Wisseloord is an honor and testament to our engineering.” said Bill McKiegan, Krell President. McKiegan continued, “Our core amplifier design philosophy focuses on being faithful to the source material and powering speakers to their maximum potential. Being part of the creative side validates our 30 plus year company mission statement. “
“After evaluating a number of other well respected amplifiers, it became immediately apparent that the Krell Evolution 400e amplifier was our clear winner.” said Darcy Proper, two time Grammy award winning mastering engineer and Wisseloord co‐owner. Proper continues, “The moment we hooked up the Krells, everything just fell into place ‐ musical detail, imaging, dynamic contrast, frequency response – it was all there. My amplifier/loudspeaker system is the most critical tool in my work. If I can’t trust what I hear coming out of my loudspeakers, then I can’t do justice to an artist’s vision of his or her music. Quite simply, Krell amplification gives our mastering room the accuracy, musicality, and power I need to make music sound its best.”
Herman van den Dungen: “My thanks to Wisseloord for the trust given to Durob Audio bv and to the Krell products. For such a professional company as Wisseloord, it is important that not only to have the very best sound, but it is also important that immediate actions can be taken if necessary. After-sales service is a very strong part of the delivered product. Durob is recognized for more than 35 years for its excellent service. Our thanks to Rhapsody team that advised Krell as potential candidate. Their advices from the very first minutes to the delivery have been a substantial part of the selection procedure.”
