Where do I begin? A pristine example of vintage Kenwood electronics! This amplifier has been gone through meticulously and the following updates were performed:
**White powder coated case (satin, textured finish)
**ALL electrolytic capacitors were updated (low ESR in power supply, Nichicon FG for signal path)
**ALL diodes were updated except the germanium ones for the meters
**ALL resistors 1/2W and up were updated with same value metal film
**About half of the 1/4W carbon film resistors were updated to 1% tolerance metal film ones
**Upgraded transistors in the speaker protection circuit
**New bulb for meter lamp, new fuses and new rubber feet
**Potentiometers and switches received the prerequisite Deoxit clean and lube
**Main filter caps upgraded from 6800uF to 10,000uF and bypassed with film caps
Aesthetically, this unit is impeccable, the front panel has one very small ding (try to find it in the photos) and a small chip in the plastic of one of the binding posts, but the face and the knobs have nary a scratch! Rear panel RCA jacks look brand new as well. Electronically, it sounds as clean as it looks. Unless one has a new KA-5700, one would be hard-pressed to find a nicer example. This is truly a turnkey, built-to-last, vintage amplifier.
