I have a Denon TU-850 and a Kenwood KT-7020 one has to go just not sure which one. So hard to decide. They both sound great both have 5 gangs and 5 filters but look very different.

The Kenwood KT-7020 is the big brother of the renowned KT-5020 and is very rare in the North America. It was only sold in Japan & Western Europe. It's not much of a looker but , Man it sounds sweet.

The Denon TU-850 sounds as good as any tuner I have ever heard but is a little thin on the bass side. It looks really cool and is very well made and HEAVY.

I don't know what it is about old tuners that I love so much but, man... I have a hard time parting with them...lol :mrgreen:

Must be the fact that they don't make them as good as they used too and I'm a little nostalgice when it comes to vintage gear :|

Though the Denon looks WAAAAAY cooler, I'd keep the Kenwood, only because sophisticated digital display tuners seem far less likely to become misaligned.
