Krell's new Evolution 707 surround preamp/processor features HDMI 1.3 functionality and 12 output stages with two center channel and four subwoofer outputs.

The 8.4 channel configuration has four HDMI inputs and supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio.

Balanced outputs and single-ended outputs are also included for use with conventional amplifiers.

Preamp mode bypasses all digital circuitry and routes the analog input, stereo or 7.1 multichannel, directly to the 16-bit balanced volume control.

Two DSPs, running in 64-bit dual precision mode, decode Dolby Digital Surround EX, Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 6.1 ES, DTS 5.1, DTS NEO:6 and Dolby Pro Logic II.

Maximum color depth has been increased from 24 bits to 48 bits and bandwidth from 165 MHz to 340 MHz.

It supports composite, S-Video or component signals and upconverts to 1080p.

The Evolution 707 is nearly 10-inches tall and weighs over 50 pounds. It has an aluminum chassis with diamond cut detailing. MSRP is $30,000.
