  1. I have Kenwood model 600 available, integrated if interested!
  2. Its a classic Here is some 80's synth music And one more
  3. I agree with you in a few points AI.M Personally I think that not all vintage pieces are worthy of attention. Some are good, some are a ok, some are just mediocre.

  9. Further information: A fully restored Kenwood Supreme, Model 600. High quality parts were used, still retaining the character of the amplifier with original Sanken outputs. Complete rebuild of the power supply, new speaker relay, a combination of Nichicon and Elna SilmicII for electrolitycs, new filtering power caps, and new trimmers for adjusting DC and Bias. A complete integrated with great phono stage as well. You can run the pre and power separately, and dual voltage with a flick of a switch at the back. I also installed a IEC connector, new power switch, and be
