    I though, since their is already a thread like this for Marantz, and I think for Pioneer and Sansui too? Why not make one for Kenwood/Trio gear too?

    1 x K2002A a small but sweet little integrated that I have a lot of affection for. Nice and bright fills a small to middle sized room without too much effort.

    My daughter currently has it to power her IPod with a pair of Paradigm Atoms.

    The only Kenwood I have owned.

    Back when I was living in Europe I bought a Sony TA-F530ES integrated amplifier around 1989, but I remember tossing up between that and a Denon PMA320 if I recall correctly and there was a Kenwood in the mix as well, the model I can no longer recall.

    It sounded pretty good but I had a prejudice against the name because I associated it with Kitchen Appliances. I hope all the Kenny fans can forgive me, I still wake up in a sweat when I think about it. There was a lot of nice looking stuff around that period and the German Hi-fi mags were always comparing the Sony ES stuff with Marantz, Denon, Kenwood and Sherwood, it seemed like a blossoming or reasonable gear at that time all built like tanks. Proton was getting a good rep as well.

    Ahhh Happy Days.

    Picked it up a month or two back, already like it so much it has become the amp in my main system, and I don't foresee it moving anytime soon!

    My only Trio-Kenwood component I ever owned was the old KA 9100 integrated amplifier. Very nicely made and nice to listen to. Never had a Kenny receiver but the older ones would be nice if one came my way!

    Started with a KA-7001, still have it after 40 years, also have a KA-7100, and a KT-7500. As for listening to music - it all has come through a Kenwood of some type.
