Default I KNEW rummaging in the basement would pay off! (Kenwood)

Yup, so I decided to go down there today, and rummage through stuff, and see what we have. I am currently using my Aiwa stereo to connect my turntable to, and it doesn't work out too well. So, I pick up a sheet, and OMG what'* this?

A Kenwood KR-5010 Receiver!

It'* a little dirty, but it works! Now to go to my Dad'* storage unit to pick his Cerwin-Vega speakers up. (I hope they are still good and work, haven't been used in 16 years).

I used to have that exact same receiver! The 'string' loop between the **** and the tuner inside broke and I never bother fixing it. I just might have it still somewhere.

I think 100 watts on each channel. I'd have to check.

I have an old Sansui like that in my garage. Works like a charm. Can't beat it.

And those older, late 70s/early 80s units just SOUND better than the "All-digital" stuff today.

You better bring the THD >.5%, or go home and play emo.
