With the Phantom Preamplifier, musicians appear silhouetted by the air about
them, filling the room with a mesmerizing depiction of the recording. Music
emanates from an expanse that outlines the recording venue, transporting you to
the moment of creation. Coupling advanced technologies and inspired design, the
Phantom preamplifier elevates preamplifier performance to an art form.

The Phantom preamplifier is the first Krell preamplifier to include an
optional crossover. The crossover functionality offers the ability to use a
subwoofer/satellite speaker arrangement and still maintain the highest quality
sonic performance. Previous to the Phantom preamplifier, this system
configuration would require signals to pass through a subwoofer's lower quality
crossover circuitry. The Phantom preamplifier is the centerpiece of a world
class audio system where space is at a premium.

Crossover Highlights

Owing to Krell's work in the Modulari Duo Reference loudspeaker, the unique
crossover feature is a highly sophisticated option. When the optional board is
present, additional crossover menu items become available. Definable parameters
include independently assignable crossover frequencies and filter types for the
high and low pass sections. Choices include 40Hz, 55Hz, 75Hz, and 100Hz
crossover points with 12dB, 24dB, and 48dB Butterworth or 24dB Linkwitz-Riley
style filters. The high pass section of the crossover uses the full Phantom
preamplifier circuitry for its output stage.

Circuitry Highlights

The Phantom preamplifier is a dual monaural circuit design with the left and
right channels afforded their own power supply regulation and individual full
chassis sized boards. All signal gain is realized in surface mount topology
using proprietary multiple-output current mirrors with nearly 500 times the open
loop linearity of other designs 1.5 MHz open loop bandwidth in a zero feedback,
balanced, Krell Current Mode design terminating in Krell CAST. A complete Krell
system (source, preamp, and amplifier) system, connected using CAST
interconnects reduces the number of voltage gain stages to the minimum, one. The
resulting noise floor approaches the theoretical limit of technology. Negative
feedback is not used anywhere in the preamp, nor is it necessary. Open-loop
distortion is typically less than 0.003%. The volume control is realized with a
balanced resistor ladder - bandwidth and transient response of the preamp
circuitry are virtually unaffected by the volume setting.

Power Supply Highlights

The Phantom audio circuits receive power from a Krell Current Mode analog
power supply housed in its own dedicated chassis. The power supply avoids the
common integrated circuit topology used in many preamplifiers and instead mimics
the design topology of Krell Evolution e Series amplifiers. The circuitry is
completely discrete giving it the ability to respond quickly to current demands
and also be unaffected by all but the most severe AC voltage power fluctuations.
Oversized for a preamplifier, the power supply features a 290 VA transformer and
41,600μF of capacitance. Locating the power supply in its own chassis presents
the ideal configuration for isolating stray electrical and magnetic interference
from the critical preamplifier signal path. Capable of delivering current and
voltage swing for any musical event, the Phantom power supply is gentle on AC
requirements when not in use. A new eco-friendly design reduces standby power
draw to 2W.

The Phantom preamplifier is offered in diamond-cut silver or a luxurious
black finish.
