Kenwood can be really good or really mediocre. I've never found a really "accurate" kenwood, so maybe I'm just biased. I've had the KR-9600 and KR-790, wasn't really impressed by either's sound. Although the KR-9600 was GORGEOUS is its wooden case, blue dial, horsepower, and so many meters!
On another thing, mission should y'all chose to accept it, what is this guy hiding in the background here? He's selling the 1250, but I spy an 1980 and what on earth is that turntable/speakers? Is that a klipsch la scala?
