WHOA! No, it's not Photoshopped, it's powder-coated (satin textured white with gloss orange). I'm the original owner. It was purchased on 2/13/1978 at Pacific Stereo on Convoy St. in Clairemont (San Diego). It had an issue in 1994 and it sat until the end of 2016 when I began a restoration. Here we go...
Note: When you see "All", it means capacitors, resistors, diodes and transistors. Carbon film resistors were replaced with 1% metal film, electrolytics include low ESR/impedance in power supply and Nichicon Fine Gold in the signal path. Film caps are Panasonic ECQ-P 2% and Wima metallized PP.
**All components replaced on diode boards
**All components replaced on amplifier boards except MOSFETs.
**Parts replacement includes new (NOS) unobtanium TA-100WAs
**All components replaced on power supply board except for a few small value ceramic caps
**Main filter caps upgraded to 15,000uF, from 12,000uF
**All electrolytic and film caps and about half of the carbon film resistors were replaced on the preamp boards.
**Film bypass caps on all power amp board electrolytics, the main filter caps, and select preamp electrolytics
**All new lamps and fuses ... and new foam behind the meters.
**All pots and switches received the prerequisite DeOxit cleaning
**Power switch jumpered to use both sets of contacts
Everything works and it sounds as clean as it looks ... and powerful! The original box, manual and sales receipt are included. This one-of-a-kind, clean Kenwood is a turn key piece of vintage gear ready to rock. No trades ... cash and carry. Yes, the price is firm and I won't ship it. Local pickup in San Diego. Thx.
