Updated the garage gym system......................found this Spec 4 amp for a good price (recapped, etc). Another update inbound in the form of a Pioneer P-D70 CD player that I've coveted for a while.................


If I were your postal carrier I’d definitely pad 30 min onto the route...daily. :beerchug:

My Kenwood KA-9100 amp. Nice mix of old school and new tech i think.

Gorgeous...............Kenwood was my first vintage. Mine is the KA-5700 which I still use to this day as my home office computer system base.

Excellent--that the big and slightly older brother of the G-7500 I bought (and still use) as a closeout in-store demo.
Yes, it Is close to the 7500, I also have a nice Sansui TT if we are allowed to post pics of that here? This G9000 has a nice smooth sound, I hardly push it, the VU meters barely move because I don’t want to go deaf:) Did you get yours in the late 70s?

No--the G-7500 was in production from 1980-1982. I got mine in about 1982 or 1983. I think the the 85 watts/channel G-7000 (and G-8000) was in the same line as the G-9000.

Even with the 90 watts/channel G-7500, you really have to crank the volume up to get the 2 power VU meters to jump more than just a bit.

You are correct, I should have double checked my dates... In 82 I was playing my Colecovision with the Atari 2600 adapter, at that time I listened to my parents Onkyo Tx2500 mkII. 90 watts per channel is more than enough. I have a much smaller Technics SA 400 and that is only 45 watts, but more than enough power with efficient speakers(have it connected to Sonus Faber Chameleon Ts.).

I have the Onkyo TX-6500 Mk ll. its rated at 100wpc. I have it driving a pair of Rectilinear Highboys in my den. It was a clear,detailed sound. Nowhere near as warm as my Sansui receivers.

I just bought a new(for me) vintage receiver yesterday. Ive been lusting after this receiver for several years,and now I finally have one.

Pics will be posted when it arrives next wednesday.
