Default Krell Introduces the Papa Dock Amplifier for iPod Playback

Krell Industries, Inc has announced the initial shipments of the Papa Dock power amplifier. The Papa Dock is a dedicated power amplifier for the Krell KID iPod dock. Based on classic Krell amplifier technology, the Papa Dock mates directly with the KID and supplies an impressive 150 watts of power. Coupled together, the Krell KID/Papa Dock pair work as one to deliver audiophile performance to any iPod listener.

Come to Papa
Externally simplistic but internally advanced, the Papa Dock circuitry follows an award winning Krell recipe – great power and refined circuitry. Featuring a massive 450-Watt, 40,000 microfarad power supply, the Papa Dock is engineered to drive virtually any speaker to realistic listening levels. Balanced circuitry in the KID delivers music to the Papa Dock via a custom connecting link, which then feeds signal to the Papa Dock output stages. Physically isolated from each other, the left and right channels incorporate discrete, direct-coupled topology, twelve high current output devices and terminate in WBT speaker connectors. Automatically responding to the insertion of an iPod, the KID powers on the Papa Dock with the reverse being true when an iPod is removed.

About the KID
KID, which stands for Krell Interface Dock, is more than a conventional iPod dock, it is a high performance iPod preamplifier. Krell core engineering technologies populate the circuitry, including discrete, differential, Class A analog circuitry. Optically isolated from the digital circuitry, the KID topology passes signal through a custom 256-step volume control and ends in balanced and single-ended audio outputs. Additional connections include composite, S-video, and RS-232 for use with more advanced control systems. The included remote control provides full iPod management as well as bass, treble, and volume adjustments. Compatible with all generation iPods and iPhones, the KID also charges the iPod battery when resting in its cradle.

Dan D’Agostino, CEO and Chief Designer adds, “The KID and Papa Dock combination defines what is sonically possible when using an iPod as a music source. Coupling the convenience of iPod with Krell electronics elevates iPod listening to a level audiophiles will find unexpectedly thrilling.”

Suggested Retail Price: KID - $1,500 MSRP, Papa Dock - $2,500 MSRP is offline   Reply With Quote
