Default Kenwood lovers take a look

hi all you Kenwood collectors/lovers/fanatics
checkout : Legendary, Ultra RARE Kenwood L-01T FM Stereo Tuner - eBay (item 140354477649 end time Dec-22-09 05:45:10 PST)

Isn't it just wicked?
With transformers like that, it's obvious it came from Japan!

I don't love Kenwood that much... Considering the content and quality of most FM broadcasts these days, I wouldn't bother. Having said that, i picked up an old Sansui TU-555 and found it a really nice change as compared to my tired old Denon digital tuner.

Actually I have no complaints with my Kaito all band tuner at $75. I compared it with my Luxman T-110 and the difference was a why bother YMMV.

Looks like what Yamaha was using in their TX1000/2000 tuners. These tranfsormers called "Massive Power Supply" also have been used in the 10000 Series.

I've been using a very nice Sansui TU-417, but could not resist the temptation of a Sansui TU-9900 recently. Cost more than I can really afford, but worth every penny!
