Two German acts whom are not really krautrock but more symphonic and heavy space rock.
Which is more close to your heart?

Eloy's closer to my heart. 

I do like Triumvirat though, their works in their first 5 years are great.

Inside and Floating is where ELOY had that Krautrock spirit happening.

ELOY. 

I do like T'rat, but Eloy have one superb album after another...and that includes their latest one.

Like both bands, but Triumvirat has 3 essential albuns on follow: Illusions (1973) Spartacus (1975) and Old Loves Die Hard (1976) and this later one topped the charts sales to number 1 here in Portugal at the time! :)

I voted for Eloy. I lean toward them to a large extent because I respond well to more guitar centered groups. I also adore the spacey atmospheres they create.

Eloy.  Spartacus & Double Dimple are very cool but I like more Eloy albums than T-rat.

More or less a tie, but I should give the edge to Triumvirat. Illusions on a Double Dimple is the best German prog album outside the Progressive Electronic domain.

Two groups I probably don't know as well as I should.  Based on my limited exposure, I have to say Eloy suits me better, although I do like Trimvarat.

Triumvirat
Eloy is good, but a bit outdated now

Yeah, these two are my favs! And then came the more Floyd influenced period, also good. 
Triumvirat did some fine albums, but Eloy gets the vote here.
