The Papa Dock is a dedicated power amplifier for the Krell KID iPod dock. Based on classic Krell amplifier technology, the Papa Dock mates directly with the KID and supplies an impressive 150 watts of power. Coupled together, the Krell KID/Papa Dock pair work as one to deliver audiophile performance to any iPod listener. Externally simplistic but internally advanced, the Papa Dock circuitry follows an award winning Krell recipe - great power and refined circuitry. Featuring a massive 450-Watt, 40,000 microfarad power supply, the Papa Dock is engineered to drive virtually any speaker to realistic listening levels. Balanced circuitry in the KID delivers music to the Papa Dock via a custom connecting link, which then feeds signal to the Papa Dock output stages. Physically isolated from each other, the left and right channels incorporate discrete, direct-coupled topology, twelve high current output devices and terminate in WBT speaker connectors. Automatically responding to the insertion of an iPod, the KID powers on the Papa Dock with the reverse being true when an iPod is removed.
