    This is not mine and I got the pictures from a Kenwood ad that is listed online and I am not affiliated with it. (Moderators, please move the post if this is not the right place)

    Was this job done by an AKer? It's called "Vintage Art" and based in San Diego. All resistors were replaced with newer ones, with a higher power dissipation. The PCBs pins were also polished as well. I am impressed by the restoration job done on this unit. Even the black accent surrounding the VU meters look cool.

    Please share your opinions, if you're a 700M fan like me.

    Looks very nice! How does it sound? One of the regrets I have with mine was that I wasn't able to ship my 700M out to have it completely gone through do to its weight and my remote location but I did send out the 3 main boards (didn't get to the power level meter board) and I changed the output transistors myself. My 700C was sent out and completely refurbished. Both units sound fantastic!

    Have to say I do like the dark accent as an alternative to the light one in mine.. Enjoy!

    rjsalvi, I might have a few questions, but I'll ask them in the original thread.
