FrontRunners: Gaining Momentum

<< Back to Robb Report, July 2013

    With its silver or black finish and copper accents, the Dan D’Agostino Momentum preamplifier (www.dagostinoinc.com) has an unusually handsome exterior. More importantly, the latest offering from Dan D’Agostino—who founded Krell Industries in 1980 before establishing his namesake brand two years ago—features six balanced inputs and two outputs mated to a system of repeating resistors that ensures clean power distribution and volume control. The Momentum is priced at $32,000. The faceplate features a volume meter, input and output indicators, and knobs for adjusting the bass and treble settings.
