The KCT features Krell Current Tunnel topology and Krell CAST technology, which work together to reproduce music with unparalleled sound quality. The KCT has dual zone capability for listening to music from different input devices at the same time, or listening to one input device while recording another. Each zone has its own volume and balance control.

Step-by-step menu options allow you to customize the KCT for ease of use and seamless integration into your system. Remote control features include a handheld remote control, which accesses all preamplifier functions as well as the compact disc functions on Krell compact disc players. The KCT also features Krell Link, RS-232 and 12 VDC (12 Volt trigger) remote control inputs for a variety of system control options. A menu-driven program remote option allows you to send KCT operating commands to a learning or programmable remote control.

A front panel display provides feedback on input and zone status, menu function and selection, and all preamplifier operations.
