Restoring a Kenwood KA-7100 amplifier.

Post by Guest on Thu Jan 24, 2019 9:55 am

Picked this amp and the matching tuner a while back for close enough the equivalent of 100 limey quid.

Not interested in tuners passed that on for 40 quid. 

It was in good nick internally the face plate was unmarked. The on off realy needed a clean, bit of corrosion on the contacts.  The top cover was corroded, the idiot had it stored in a damp garage.  All caps checked out not bad for an amp. made 1977. Gave it good clean internally.

Lent it to a mate who had gone through a divorce and had to sell all his kit.  He used it for 18 months or so, with some Wharfedale Diamond 9.6 speakers and a JVC XL Z441 CDP I had standing around.  In my opinion and his, it was more pleasant to listen to than the silly priced high end stuff he had to sell.

Any way got it back when his stupid bat shit crazy Bi-Polar girl friend wanted a fucking home theater set up.   This chick drives him up the wall she is loopy loop big time, with the most awful 14 year son, who in my opinion is a future school shooter.  His stupid bare foot Dutchman father has bought the psycho shit a hunting rifle, and they go shooting buck the cunts, fucking hate that sort of thing.  He can't seem to show the crazy women the door, he is to bloody soft.  He is a big man, a body builder with a gentle nature.  Seen him loose it a couple of times, had a guy at work once who was giving him endless shit, he picked him up by the throat and had him against the wall, we had to pull him off.  Have told him to get rid of the bitch before he looses it, and he agrees.   



Back to the amp replaced the binding posts with something that can take bananas, found some compact ones after a bit of scratching around. 
Got the cover very nicely powder coated and it is now better than new.
Going to retire my Teac BX 300 in my bedroom and use the Kenwood with my 94db Klipsch KG 4's it should give them a kick in the ass with 60w pc to the Teac's 30wpc.

Wish my fucking Knob performed, that being said the fucking thing has a bend in it, and is as ugly as they get.

We cant all have a thing like Mr. Engine can we, that is if your comparing Knobs that is.

The volume knob on that Kenwood is great it has click graduations on it, and is a solid piece of alloy not plastic, so are the rest of the knobs and switches.
Got more metal in it than that hideous Korean plastic throw away SUV  POS of Phuckers.   Twisted Evil

Yep good idea there Pip need to make some money at least 500 quid a day, so I can also be rich, and live a kings lifestyle and get me a top of the range motorised invalid chair.

Might get me one of these what you say the sporty one or the 4x4 with a heated seat for the fucking snow.

Check the Porn his pooter if  it has any on it you will know what sort of adapter he is;  pussy, bum, dick, maybe all 3, sissy, bdsm, tranny, farmyard, hell the possibility's are endless.
If there is no porn get the lazy little fuck into therapy pronto, just ain't normal for a 15 year old lad not to be into porn, is it.

Then again I do think nothing is normal in that family.

Doubt it think the kid caught his pop doing it over the basin or over the laundry basket while sniffing Marie's skid marked nickers, and got so turned off with wot a fucking pig his pop was he swore off wanking.

He don't seem to have any mates which concerns me, at his age we had wanking competitions behind the cricket shed FFS!.  One bloke came 1st and 3rd.

Got the feeling Darkie is a Dyke might be wrong need a picy to confirm.

Right back on track got the cover back from the powder coater's did a flawless job and charged next to nothing.

Amp looks as good as new.

Hooked it up to my Corscalas Nah it sounds just average and compared to the valve amps shyte no fucking mid range fuck all niks nyada.

Anyway hooked it to my Wharfedales down stairs and it sounds great. sounds the same more or less as the valve amp does on these speakers.

The better the speaker the more it shows up weaknesses in amplification that is a fact take it or leave it no amp is going to make an average speaker sound appreciably better.

Proved this time and again.

The next fucking moron that asks for an amp recommendation for his new bargain speakers going to tell him to fuck off down to the pawn broker and get a second hand AVR, or some ROTHELL POS. Cause all Rotel amps is just average shyte and AVR's are all crap like his speakers.
