Ka-5050R vintage

Recommended Posts

Hello guys I am new commer here.

A week ago I just purchased a vintage 1993 ka-5050R MOSFET kenwood amplifier. I am so happy with the eartquaking solid sound.

Can anyone tell me the difference between my amplifier and the Ka-7050R?

Does also anyone know why the volume knob led indicater at times it flickers when putting volume up and down? And input selector switch doesnt always obey the selection made.

Could all this result of non usgae for some time of device pls?

 

Thank you so much for the help.

Hi @johannmicallef480

 

Basically the 5050 is 80watts/channel and the 7050 is rated at 100watts/channel.

 

Most other things are equal such a MM & MC signal to noise ratios and the 7050 having better distortion control.

Hello janjuc.
Thanks for you interest.
In the owners manual it says 95watts + 95 watts din into 8 ohms not 80 and 140watts + 140 watts into 4 ohms

Hi,

 

The output from the links provided is 80w @ 8ohms for the 5050 and 100w  @ 8ohms for the 7050

Just looking at the basic specs there is an extra 3 kg, probably a larger power supply and associated cooling, ? better electronics, but that would depend on price.
