    Free is always good. Can be used for parts or might get lucky and all it needs are preamp jumpers.

    Cosmetic condition is a key factor here depending on how particular you are.

    If it's close to you and in good physical condition....it certainly can't hurt to pick it up. May be an easy (cheap) fix. Current "sold" listings on eBay range from $200-$250 for ones in working condition plus shipping....good luck!

    You started a thread less then 24 hours ago that you have a lead on a Kenwood Kr-5300 for $100 that you state

    http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/kenwood-kr-5030-worth-100.837475/#post-11959500

    Why would you be willing to spend $125 to $175 (your guesstimate) or possibly more for a unit that is not working?

    if the Sansui G5700 is in the same shape why would you be willing to spend $125 to $175 (your guesstimate) or possibly more on top of the $125 you paid less then 10 days ago?

    http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/in...-try-to-trade-with-a-few-other-things.836428/


    If you REALLY want a Kenwood whether it 's the KR-5030, KR- 7400 or 7600 stop spending money on units your not interested in (Sansui G5700), looking for late 90's/early 2000 units, or looking to pick up non working units that you hope can be repaired in the $125 to $175 range.

    Here's a KR-7400, serviced, free shipping, and 30 day money back guarantee you could of picked up a couple of days ago for $220

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/KENWOOD-KR-7400-AM-FM-STEREO-RECEIVER-POWER-AMPLIFIER-SERVICED-/283153507636?hash=item41ed43a534:g:ABMAAOSwZB1blyzW&nma=true&si=U2dgakD2dThTbiPVwRbC24O9JZk%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    Bottom line is you gotta pay to play, if you wanna keep scrounging around CL in Houston posting wanted to buy listings offering to pay up to $175 for specific models you're not going to get anywhere.

    KR 7600 is worth a decent amount in good condition $200 or less to get it fixed might be the best deal for me.

    I am just asking what would be the best route

    Get the Sansui G 5700 fixed
    Get the free KR 7600 and get it fixed
    Get the KR 5030 for $100 it is in good working condition it is a 8 out of 10

    My opinion:
    - get the free KR-7600, part out everything on eBay, take the proceeds
    - get the Sansui G-5700 fixed up, recapped, by using the proceeds above
    - screw the KR-5030.

    What you will end up with is a nicely restored Sansui that will keep appreciating in value. The Kenwood prices have not kept up, and people do not go ga ga over them, unless it's a KR-9400 or KR-9600. And even then, there's a limit to the upside.

    Not might it's a great! deal for you. I'm glad you were able to come to that realization. Now you'll have a working receiver worth a decent amount more after your $200 investment in it, plus you'll get to listen to music again, which I assume is what it's all about for you, and focus on other things such as not continuously starting threads asking "Is this a good deal" or posting wanted to buy threads on CL and having to deal with people trying to sell you items that may or may not work.

    I'm glad you figured it out and that this whole year long ordeal is behind you now. Congrats

    Look!@!!!
    A bright shiny object.

    If a person has a couple bucks in their pocket should they run out and buy something before the money is gone?
    Is it ok to save your money for more than a week and then maybe buy something decent that is working and will not require more money to get it operating?

    ALSO---those WTB listings are in the wrong section, they should be in "Wanted" and not in "For Sale".

    Get the 7600. If it’s stuck in protect, it’s either the power supply or one of the amps. Unplug both amps and see if it comes out of protect. If not, the power supply has the issue. Otherwise plug in one amp and see if it comes out of protection. You can pin down what has the issue fairly easily and can fix it yourself or find someone local to do it.

    slowpat makes a fantastic point, but I'd snag that Kenny REGARDLESS.

    Kenwoods are sleepers. Get that sucker and spend your money getting it fixed up in addition to the G-5700. When a chance shows it's face you gotta jump on it. If you get the Kenny, you can hold it until funds are better and then get it fixed when it won't hurt so much. I had a bunch of monster receivers and did one a year to get rehabbed and recapped. I now have 6 monsters all working, but I just had to wait a while.

    I picked up the KR 7600 today all the lights on the front work the knob for the on off switch is missing and there is no sound out what so every it is very dusty inside looks like it has never been cleaned. I plan to get it fixed in the near future.

    I don't see any jumpers in the "adaptor" jacks.
    Try using interconnect cables if you don't have proper jumpers.

    And give it a good bath, in and out.
    You might end up with a nice receiver for free.

    First thing I noticed in your pics is that the jumpers are missing on the pre out/amp in loops.. Try bridging those with a couple short rca cables and see if that "fixes" it ...
