Kenwood KA3500 Integrated Amp


This Mint amp surprised me! It sounds so clean.
Drove the Ohms' with ease.
The tone was really solid from high to lows. Simplistic styling which I love. Produced in 1977 at 40 wpc its solid power.
With the mint KT5500 Tuner in stock this combo is rare 70's beauties!

  1. I owned this piece back in 1977. It had nicely well phased channels but it just lacked deep bass fidelity. I think it also distored some highs;they sounded overmodulated. I returned the unit. I believe I did have that KT5500 tuner and that was excellent.

  5. Just got one. It looks beautiful and sounds pretty nice as well, but I agree with kelsci on the deep bass fidelity. Otherwise, I'm quite happy with this unit.

  6. I just got this great vintage amp . I hooked it up to some Yamaha speakers that had previously been powered by a huge Sony surround receiver rated at triple this little Kenwood . I had to pay the speakersat half volume with the Sony to get the sound I get from this great little amp set on 3 . Power to spare and great sound . Not bad for a $20.00 find .

  7. I paired Nenwood KA-3500 with B&W 603S2, B&W speakers needs power and Kenwood is doing very well, and I have plenty of bass. Sometimes I miss high tones but depends of song sometimes is OK. My recommendation is to test w. different speakers. Bottom line I like my vintage set up, its worm sound, good power and vintage simple design
