Kenwood C1 Basic Control Amplifier
Hi Everyone

Is anyone using this oldtimer workhorse? Mine is in daily use because of its convenience. I use it with my Leak Stereo 20 amp and it still sounds great. I also have the matching tube pre for the Leak but it's no contest between the Kenwood and the tube pre. Its got an mc input as well which is more than useable.

Just asking

Kenwood C1 Basic Control Pre-amp
Hi echowars

Thanks! Nice to know. Mine just goes on and on. I'm soon going to fit better input sockets. I've already removed the captive ac lead and fitted an IEC socket. Next, I'll have a looksee with the view to changing some bits inside for better quality items.

on and on

bought the C1 together with a Rotel 850B as second hand app 15 years ago. The combi still works without any flaws. I find the C1 the limiting component sonically, but even though itīs been worth its price without any doubt. When things go on like this, I assume a future archaeologist may find it as a gift right under the skull in a grave ;)
