  1. Item: Kenwood KA-9100 Dual Mono Integrated Amp. Location: Sydney (Northern Beaches) Price: $1450. Item Condition: Excellent (for age) Reason for selling: Need the money Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: This is an rare KA-9100 amp. Pretty much the last of the big boys from Kenwood. Dual Mono design & 90wpc. Lots of power. great looks and a fantastic original wood case (which can be removed if you want a steel case look). This is the international version with multi-voltage selection. So you can run it on 110v or 240v. Also comes with the original 1977 Kenwood box! how's that for hording... Condition: It's pretty much been in carbonate freeze, hence why it's in this condition, boxed for all these years. Overall, this amp is in incredible condition. The face plate is spotless, no dings, dents or corner imperfections one would usually expect. It's perfect. The outer wood cabinet is also in incredible condition. Nothing worth mentioning other than a slight mark above the Kenwood 'd', small enough to be hard to photograph. Sound: It's comparable to my Sansui AU-717. Warm, great sound-stage and wide-ranging detail. Oh and it has VU meters with working lights!! Built-in phono-stage is as good as they get for that era. All dials, switches and buttons work as expected. Specifications: Power output: 90 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 7Hz to 50kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.03% Input sensitivity: 2.5mV (MM), 150mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 83dB (MM), 100dB (line) Output: 1V (Pre out) Speaker load impedance: 4Ω to 16Ω Dimensions: 430 x 149 x 384mm Weight: 16.7kg Year: 1977 Pictures:
  2. Having listened to these in the flesh - they are truly bang-for-buck mono's. They come with a great valve paring and are super heavy due to the solid construction and massive output transformers. GLWTS.
  3. Don't want to hijack, as that 600 is a killer amp and one I'd love to own one day. I have a KA-9100 if that's of interest.
  4. Looks to be in superb condition. Been running the same one for a while and like you say - hits above it's weight. GLWS.
  5. Two sold pending deposit/pickup. Two remaining.
  6. Item: PS Audio - AC12 Power Cables. Price: $650ea. Item Condition: Brand new in box. Reason for selling: Moved into new house where placement is sub optimal. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased several of these top of the line cables post Xmas sale while in USA thinking they would be perfect for the new home (which we moved into on return). Turns out there are so many power points in the right places that a fat 2m cable is too long for the equipment. So I'm needing to get the shorter 1m ones. These are beautifully finished cables. Super robust and most of all, make a difference. These are US plug and have a nicely integrated - removable earth pin if required. I have 4 for sale and am taking a quite a hit to move them on at this price considering the crappy USD etc. Prefer pickup as they are heavy, but can post at a push.
  7. Phono signal over Ethernet?

    Thanks for the thoughts. Regarding digital media - at the moment I have a NAS which serves media to a Kodi HTPC via Ethernet (or wifi if needed). This is more about how I can have my TT somewhere else, not close to my amp and how best to get the signal from one location to another via Ethernet (as I have that easily accessible). So from what you are telling me, the signal from the TT (with or without SUT) won't be effective over Ethernet because of the degradation of signal over distance and the lack of shielding on the Ethernet cable?
  8. Phono signal over Ethernet?

    Thanks for the replies everyone - you've given me a couple of things to try. I'll report back with findings.
  9. Phono signal over Ethernet?

    Hi Andy, At this stage I don't have the Slee plugged in and was just using the built-in MM SUT in my amp (to remove any potential issues - path of least resistance!). So it's LP12 RCA out to Ethernet socket A then Ethernet socket B to RCA -> AMP. Cable run is about 20m. I was hoping this would just be my botch soldering that made it noisy... Would there be a better twisted pair option to use, such as: Solid Green/Brown = L + White Green/Brown = L - Solid Blue/Orange = R + White Blue/Orange = R- Or another combo? Thanks
  10. Hi there, I have Cat6 wired throughout my house and at opposite corners of most rooms. Because of geographical audio placement issues, am thinking how to send the TT signal to my amp which is in another location in the room. That has lead me to the concept of making or buying an appropriate RCA to Ethernet cable adapter. Is this sort of thing "done" ? I jimmy'ed up an adapter for each Ethernet port, but get a lot of line noise coming though so am wondering where I could have stuffed it up. For the above Version 1.0 adapter, I wired the center RCA pin to the solid Green (Left) and solid Brown (right) wire from the Ethernet cable and the outer RCA wired to the white/green and white/Brown Ethernet wires. Lots of hum was the result with music sounding average in the background. Any ideas or thought - bash me if this is a no-no too. Just looking to see if this is viable or not. Thanks
