Bottom Line:   
Exellenct stereo! It has 8 speackers in total, 300Watt total output, unbelievable bass. I dont usually listen to classic, or some low-bass music. I like Drum&Bass and Hip-Hop. The bass is extreme, and I usually go to the store to compare the new models, and only the JVC with its gigatubes comes close. It even has an interior fan, so it wont overheat.

Bottom Line:   
I think that for a Shelf System, this packs a punch. The bass response is amazing, the sound is clean, even the mid range is very pronounced. If your recording is very well made, you can overlook the weak highs from the paper tweeter. If there was a way to replace the Tweeter with a plastic one, that would be excellent. OVerall, very worth it for small or large room. No Surround capabilities, though.

Everything's good, but port noise may make you want to turn the subs down a bit. I got mine when they first came out, (April 1998) and was blown away, but now thay have the xd-81, and i am a little bit pissed, but that's okay. The menus are tricky to operate, but you get used to them.

Bottom Line:   
This stereo sounds great, and for the price I paid ($175 including shipping), it was WELL worth my money.
There are only a couple flaws with this system... I don't know if everyone's would have the same problems, but here are the ones I've had: Sometimes I can hear little cracks or pops in the music, when I know they shouldn't be there, but it's not very noticable. Also, the cd player skips sometimes when I turn it up loud. I think this may just be because I have the speakers too close to the main component, or maybe because the entire thing is sitting on something that isn't too sturdy. Other than that, this system is great... especially the bass.

Great overall sound...highs could be a little more powerfull...Kenwood could have used the BBS system to do that. Powerfull sound though. oh yea! don't listen to the guy with the short review that rated it 2/5 stars either... he's nuts!
