Kenwood KR-5150


Kenwood KR-5150

 

Ok, the Kenwood KR-5150 has some strange styling.  Black, white, orange and green. Almost a Halloween look and those white buttons really stand out like tusks.  This Kenwood classic came out around 1971 and lasted until around 1975 and featured 50 watts per channel. This one has the optional wood case which you don't actually see too often with this receiver. It retailed for around $320.00-$350.00.

The styling definitely the design transition from the late 60's in to the mid 70's.  Later Kenwood models had a more appealing design.

This particular Kenwood model isn't all that popular with collectors and they can be found for under $100. A 5150 with a wood case will bring a bit more.  One in pretty good condition with a wood case recently sold for $150.00 (10-6-2011).

  1. I HAVE ONE OF THESE. I HAVE SEEN VINTAGE SITES THAT HAVE THESE LISTED AS HIGH AS $500. JUST CURIOUS WHY A PERSON WOULD SELL THIS CLASSIC VINTAGE RECIEVER CHEAP LIKE IN THE ABOVE EBAY POSTINGS????

  2. The KR-5150 only sells for around $100 to $125. I haven’t seen one actually sell for $500 as of yet.

  3. Jus picked one up w/wood case for $60…
    WHAT A STEAL!! 50W..Can run 3 sets of speakers…. 2 mics…. an such a warm sound!!! 70’s KR is so sweet

  4. A friend of mine had a KR 5150 and a set of Sansui 5500 speakers. All mint, weirdly untouched. Gave them to me. Absolutely powerful combo. Loud.
