Dan D'Agostino doesn't have quite the name recognition of a Bob Carver or Nelson Pass, but his company - Krell Industries - is one of the biggest powerhouses in audio. After starting Krell and working as its chief engineer for 30 years, Dan has decided to move on and create a new company carrying his signature, Dan D'Agostino Inc.
The company's first product is the Momentum monoblock amplifier. A radical depature from Krell's signature Class A monsters, the Momentum is a compact design featuring a solid aluminum billet chassis and copper heatsinks for efficient heat removal. The Momentum can produce 300 watts into 8 Ohms and 600 watts into 4 Ohms, and yet draws just 1 watt from the wall while idling. The price is $42,000/pr
, with shipments beginning in December.
