Bottom Line:   
This amp is hands down the best looking amp I have ever seen, the recessed volume knob, stamped lettering on the face all reek of quality, mine is paired with the matching tuner and I LOVE how it looks.

The sound...., well let me tell you they don't make them like this any more, if they did no one would ever buy another stereo system. Built like a tank and plays beautifully, mids and highs are very nice. I have run TT, MP3 and CD through it and no matter what she plays beautiful.

If you happen upon this unit don't pass it by, the Kennies are VASTLY underrated and you can still get them comparatively cheap in relation to comparable's by other brands. The bass is a little shy but that may mean a tune up and servicing. Very nice amp.

Bottom Line:   
I got my KA7100 cheap because it had been dropped HARD and was bent and
gouged up...but what a sound! Dual power supplies, direct coupled amp, discrete
Toshiba output transistors, dual output capacitors per channel, switching at the
source to minimize wire runs - THIS THING WAS BUILT! I now know why so
many people prize these Kenwood integrateds.
This model was 3rd from the top of the line, but with 60 wpc @ 8 ohms with less
than .02% THD very few modern units can compete. This beast makes my Polk
Monitor 4 speakers sound like powerhouses and a lot cleaner than I thought they
were capable of. That's the mark of a great amp - it makes the rest of the system
