Anyway, I'm actually thinking of doing some of this deoxit stuff you all talk about. Any advice on how to go about it or is there a thread or something? Not even sure where you get it to be honest with you. I'm assuming it's some kind of contact cleaner, right?

 

Here is the AK DeoxIt guide:

Guitar Center sells the D5 - which should be what you want.

Awesome! Looks like it calls for a couple deoxit products, eh?

It did initially have a mediocre sound quality through the headphone jacks, but it was 99% fixed with deoxit. A recap might have gotten the last 1%, but I didn't have it in the budget, haha. If you don't want to open it up, just hitting the headphone jack and your input ports with the right deoxit will get you most of the way there.

 

If DeoxIT ever gets banned and replaced by inferior products, we're in trouble...

The Kenwood KT-8300 is very highly regarded and that is a great price.  Check out http://www.fmtunerinfo.com/ for the mods that can be done.

I have the KT-8300 and have done most of the mods mentioned. It is a phenomenal sounding piece of kit after the mods and not too shabby before.

yeah! I don't listen to the radio really at all though. I would love to find the amp(s) that go with it though! I am collecting these old receivers now. so far have an Harman Kardon 430 (really want a 730) I use with my Music Hall MMF 5.1 and Kenwood KR-7300 that I use with my computer and Nuforce UDH-100

I currently have a heavily modified KT-7550 running into the analog bypass on my NAD M15 (very good in this mode) and then into 2 Jeff Rowland M1s in bridged mono configuration.  It is basically unmatched sound quality.  Incredible detail and depth/width of sound stage.   The 7550 even images beyond the outside edges of my speakers.

Thanks for the suggestions! I was able to find a vintage shop in the area, will take the KR-9400 in for a tune-up. I took a good look inside the headphone jack and it is either dirty or rusty. It might be placebo, but because the Marantz player is brand new, I think it needed to break-in. I noticed a slight improvement in soundstage through the speakers the other day. I had Metallica going pretty good! But also not gonna lie...I want to try some other gear out if I find it for a decent price (the Kenwood is my only piece of vintage equipment at the moment). The ability to link components sounds like a good enough excuse, plus knowing I can try it both as the preamp and the power amp is nice. I have the space available on my shelf.

does any one has the Luxman R1120?

You guys think a Pioneer SX315 is worth $50 if it works properly?

$50 might be a little high.

Crap...my denon avr-600 now displays "PROTECT" when I turn it on. I have disconnected all cables and still get the message. Also have tried another outlet. Is it done? Is there a way to do a factory reset?

Electroacustic - GmbH Kiel - Lautspr. Box - Typ LK 4100 -

Made in Western Germany

Check out these made in "Western Germany" stereo speakers I picked up the other day at the Goodwill store for $8. I don't think they knew what they had when they priced them. Heck I didn't even know what they were because I really couldn't anything about them using "the google." All I knew is that they were heavy as hell, not too beat up and were made in W. Germany.  So, I took a shot.  They have two different 10 inch woofers (my friend who is a sound engineer in Germany said that one was for extreme lows), some sort of 6 inch oval mid-range (inside a plastic enclosure) and a soft dome tweeter. The top, bottom and sides turned out  to be constructed of solid wood. Unfortunately, the badges are missing from the grills, so I have very little information about these.  They seem to be fully functioning and sounded pretty damn good hooked up to and ancient Pioneer 50 watt test amp with Chet Baker oozing out of them.
Again, I can find anything on these speakers in the interweb.  If anyone has any info, please post it here.
