How is Quality and Customer Service defined in the 21st Century?
I have encountered only one quality issue. Regardless, it is customer service that really counts. Several years ago, I had a failing Krell…it was a rather old model amp suffering its age. The folks at Krell couldn’t have been nicer or more accommo...
