I called Krell, the unit was built in 2005, no HDMI inputs and no upgrade to get them. They stopped making them Jan 2007. Firmware is upgradeable but the seller told me he made a mistake and wants $1800.00 now. The unit is new in the box. It was supposedly bought from authorized dealer and listed for $4500.00.

I'm passing with no HDMI

I think it is important to know that pre/pro's fall hard in value, and the changin market/needs is the reason.

Personally, I wouldn't buy a pre/pro without HDMI I/O and all the advanced audio codecs now, period.

You are getting a great deal, but also buying something totally outdated. It might work for you now, but in a few months, it will not need your needs and you will be forced to sell it for less than what you bought it for.
