Bottom Line:   
I bought this used and at a very reasonable price. When I plugged it in and the music came on, first thing I noticed was that the solid images it created, vocals, both lead and backing, sound fantastic.

Terrific bass too, and when watching movies, they sound great, the dialogue sound so clear, I no longer turn the volume up as I was with other amps.

It does have a bit of fatigue factor, but it is not to the point where you would turn off the music.

Keep in mind it was less then five hundred bucks when new, and in my opinion, it offers great sound for a price of a low fi receiver.

I am planning on getting another one so I can run two of these in bridge mode, this way, you will get 270WPC.

Bottom Line:   
I bought one 2nd hand unit sometime before 2004, I used it as stereo power amp., but after I upgraded it by using 2 units & bridged it with 270wpc output in 2006, it changed its performance completely. Of course I use it with the same Vestex Pro 45 maxer as the Preamp. and also used the same Sansui Tower speakers.
The Hi to Low Feq.output were so detail, it shown me the power deep base, but extreemly quiet when the CD stopped! Up to now, August 2011, I'm still using it for hearing Jezz as well as classical music. Although I also have the Mark Levison 332 power amp. I still keep this Kwnwood KM-1000 because of different apperance and performance, not to mention their prices were so low. The usage between the two Amp were 50/50. I love this Kenwood KM-1000 very much! Cheers!
