While the Evolution One mono amp is not a radical sonic breakthrough -the best aspects of Krell “voicing” have been preserved- the Krell virtues of deep-bass power and rich natural timbre have been enhanced, while air, life, microdynamics, depth, detail, and the upper octaves have improved to contenders for the state-of-the-art. A true sonic benchmark. AHC, 158
The Krell Evolution series puts the third dimension back in music by providing exceptional depth. It also provides exceptional reproduction of hall sounds and musical mechanics – bowing sounds, scope rustling, etc. This effect is enhanced by the imaging qualities of the Evolution Two. When the imaging on a recording is natural and detailed, the Evolution preserves the size, the place, the stability and the layers of imaging. The result is a more open soundstage, better reproduction of life and air, and a greater ability to lose yourself in the music. AHC, 158
Krell’s compact, narrow-profile, cool-running 150W monoblock’s tight, musically convincing bass and superb treble openness place it on a par with Krell’s best. Further it displays a dynamic liveliness and dexterity that verge on the uncanny. In the midrande, it is as grainless as any amp in SS’s experience, perhaps faltering just a bit in the way of three dimensionality and harmonic juiciness. SS, 205
