Strength:

Sounds clean.Light weight compact size.Pulls in strong signal.At least in my area. Smooth dial.

Weakness:

Not enough watts in the amp.Needs more bells and whistles.

I purchased a Kenwood KT-5500 tuner and a Kenwood KA-5700 amplifier at a yard sale on Saturday for $20 for both of them.I hooked them up to a pair of Bose 301 series 3 speakers that I bought at the same sale for $20 also and they sound exellent.Both are in perfect physical condition and work fine.

Strength:

Sound Features Natural reproduction

Weakness:

Selectivity Sensitivity

Indeed of the the top 10 tuners all time. I really don't know why someone will pay more then $1000 for a tuner when something like a Kenwood KT-5020 is available. Is bettering ANY CD-player that I listened in my system.

Strength:

Quiet, good capture ability. Good Ergonomics. Excellent FM.

Weakness:

None

This review is for a modified Kenwood KT-5500 tuner. This model came with the optional walnut veneer wood case. The mods are 2 PCB adder filter boards. The mods were added by Bill Ammons of Phoenix, Arizona. This tuner is a gem. My pre-disposition towards most Kenwood products is that they are solid,fairly well built but unspectacular sonically. Not so with Kenwoods really fine KT tuner line. This tuner has excellent capturing ability, very quiet while changing stations and exceptional FM. The ergonomics are simple and straight forward- far superior to the digital dreck that followed this excellent line. I highly recommend.

Tuners from various receivers that I have owned- Sansui 771, Pioneer SX-205(awful), Marantz 2245, Marantz 2325, Marantz 2385. Marantz 120 Tuner.

Strength:

excellent interference rejection specs

Weakness:

few bells and whisles

This tuner is a great value. Kenwood makes high-end ham radio equipment, and they know how to design tuners for real world listening conditions. This tuner has interference rejection specs better or equal then tuners costing hundreds of dollars more. Great sound quality.

I have been happy with this product. It has given me good AM reception which is important to me. The unit is very light. For the money- it has stood up very well.
