  1. The 680EE is a well regarded cart that will sound great with a new stylus readily available from William Thakker (EU) or turntable needles (US). Plus that brush is in excellent condition and easy to transfer. Trust this seller. GLWTS DaveR
  2. Brilliant phono! I picked one up about a month ago here on SNA and I am very happy with it. GLWTS! D
  3. Stunning Phil! These are a legendary series of amplifiers. I've got the little brother SA-608 which was my first "real" amp. It's still in my collection 30 years later. Deserves a good home! GLWTS. D
  4. Thanks Pete. I've really enjoyed having the Kenwood in the system for a while. The extra power it offers over the valve amp makes a big difference to the sound of the Lenehans. D
  5. Item: Kenwood KA-8100 Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne (happy to courier at your expense) Price: $800 Item Condition: Near Mint (9/10) Reason for selling: Not being used the way that it should. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank deposit. Extra Info: I love this amp, but has been mainly housed in my man cave and is not getting the attention it deserves. It should be with someone who will use it every day. It is a damn fine piece of machinery and happily drives pretty demanding speakers. It has that typical 1970s Kenwood sound – punchy, a bit forward, but never harsh or shrill. It is never too warm or laid back (typical of Luxman and Yamaha) or too bright and sharp (Pioneer and Akai) – personal opinions of course! It got a write up at the Vintage Knob – so you know it has cred! http://www.thevintageknob.org/kenwood-KA-8100.html Have a look at a model 600 Supreme from 1975 and you will discover that the design philosophy of that iconic amplifier was carried over into the 7100 / 8100 / 9100 product line a few years later! The unit is NEAR MINT. There are a couple of very very small nicks on the edge of the face plate, but otherwise the face is unmarked. The case was a bit faded so I re-sprayed it with gloss black and it looks sensational. The original photos were taken before the respray. The indoor pics are after the respray. It has MM and MC capability for your turntable. Demos welcome, by arrangement. Specifications Power output: 75 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 7Hz to 50kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.03% Damping factor: 50 Input sensitivity: 2.5mV (MM), 150mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 85dB (MM), 110dB (line) Output: 150mV (line), 30mV (DIN), 1V (Pre out) Speaker load impedance: 4Ω to 16Ω Dimensions: 430 x 149 x 384mm Weight: 14.5kg Pictures:
