    Anyone refinished the wood cabinet on a KA-9100 or a KT7500 ? I want to strip and refinish them to match the original finish. Any tips, which stripper, stain, clear finish used etc. would be greatly appreciated.

    Sometimes the Kenwood forum is pretty quiet, probably because they are so damn reliable they rarely fail ;). Be patient, someone who has done it is bound to reply.

    I found 9 out of 10 9100's run hotter with the wooden case.
    I've fixed alot of them with wooden cases. The output section on the right channel gets hotter
    than one with metal covers.
    My .02

    I never refinished one.

    Hmmmm....well i really wanted to leave the cover on it so it matched the tuner & cassette deck.

    How about mounting a small computer style fan behind the unit to move air ?

    I've done that in several units to cool. The 9600 is one of them and the 9100.
    I ran a temp probe to check the temps. Especially near the right channel. The metal channel that the wires are in blocks alot of air
    from that section. And the rear power supply adds more heat.
