I like it. Especially the Kenwood! 

post #17796 of 18958

Thanks LugBug1.  My brother gave me the Kenwood about 4 yrs ago.  I remember I was with him when he bought it in 1974.  It sounds better than most modern amplifiers that cost as much as $2000.00; I know because at one time I owned a Cambridge 850A & the Kenwood is much better. Aesthetically it's also impressive isn't it ? It's all metal in a wood casing; not a single piece of plastic anywhere to be found = refreshing.  It's like the old saying : they don't make 'em like that anymore.  :wink_face: 

 

P.S. Thanks again Mike (he's my brother).

Very nice set up.  I had a KA-5000 back in the day (50 wpc) and of course wish I still had it.  What do you use the Kenwood for, an additional headphone amp?

post #17799 of 18958

Thanks jjshin23.

 

Hi bbophead : yes as a matter of fact I do use the Kenwood as a headphone amp also.  It depends on the age, quality, production, etc. of the music I listen to.  The Kenwood has many options/switches to adjust the sound with, aside from the regular bass, treble & volume adjustment knobs, i.e. : FILTERS : LOW 40HZ (up) & 20HZ (down) switch; HIGH 7KHz (up) & 12KHz (down) switch.  TURNOVER : BASS 400KHz (low) & 200KHz switch; TREBLE 3KHz (High) or 6KHz switch.  MUTING : 10db & 20db or OFF.  LOUDNESS : ON/OFF. There is also a knob to choose the following sound options : right side only, left side only, stereo, reverse (right becomes left & vice versa) & mix. The ring behind the volume knob is for balance left, middle, right. Last but not least 70wpc will drive any HP very well. You can adjust/play with all of these options along with the regular sound adjustment knobs in a multitude of combinations to adjust the sound to your liking & add to that 3 different sounding high quality HPs & you can spend an evening adjusting and enjoying your music.  Meh, it beats watching bad sitcoms on TV. :rolleyes:

Hey keph,

 

Congratulations.  Very nice/impressive setup/equipment, especially the Leben CS300XS = makes me envious from what I've read about that amp.  That would be the only amp I would upgrade to if I got the chance to do so (oh yes, I forgot a small detail : & THE $$$$$$$).  How long have you had the Leben for (if you don't mind my asking) & how do you like it's sound/performance ?  :cool:

The most current setup. Audio-gd nfb-10se serving 2 functions, dac to the pioneer sx-727 which is feeding klh model sixes. Second is to an he-4 fully balanced, input is usb from that cheapo dell pc there. Barely pictured are my re-262s and shure srh840s, both of which barely are used.

Me too. My 90's harman/kardon receiver I posted awhile back still sounds great, and I found a probably 80's ish fischer audio receiver at goodwill of all places that surprisingly works and still sounds good. I use that one with some home made floor standing speakers. I need to take pics lol
