    Cue the feeding frenzy! DaveR
  2. Great turntable! Listening to mine right now. I prefer it over my Thorens TD-160S, Technics 1200/2, Denon DP-3000 and Kenwood KD-500 - all pretty well regarded decks. This at the Vintage Knob too: http://www.thevintageknob.org/yamaha-PF-1000.html That second cart is an Empire LTD200. GLWTS. Buyer will be very pleased. DaveR

    Nice starter deck. GLWTS! D
  4. That's a great price for this amp!
  5. Lovely unit with a beautiful three dimensional sound stage. Deserves a good home. GLWTS. DaveR
  6. Great buying here. I've owned one of these. I know Akai doesn't get a lot of cred when compared to other Japanese brands but these amps are really punchy and sound great if you like the forward sound. Rock and electronic are sensational on these units. The new owner will really enjoy it! D
  7. Item: Kenwood KA-8100 Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne (happy to courier at your expense) Price: $1000 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 it is currently 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 – bold, 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 vey 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 - I will upload some pics post re-spray tomorrow. It has MM and MC capability for your turntable. Demos welcome, by arrangement.

    Oh, OK. That's a fair way from my contact in Kenmore. Would you consider shipping to Melbourne if I arrange and pay? I have a set of Ascensions now, but I'm missing the rear surrounds. David
