Kenwood KR-7050

 

This is a Kenwood offering from 1979-1980. It's the Kenwood KR-7050 and supplies 80 watts per channel in to 8 ohms. It has a very good tuner and features Wide/Narrow IF selection and incorporates 5 ceramic filters. The styling is fairly typical of the late 70's but not quite as sharp or sleek as the Pioneer SX series of the same era. Still, it was built in Japan and is a very good quality receiver and the IF selection is something most Pioneer's did not have. It's a great feature to have when trying to tune in a weak station that is adjacent to a strong station.

  1. I do have this one. I paid $90 recently. Its missing one button on the top left. It takes a few minutes for both channels to come on, but they eventually do. Hopefully just a cleaning will do it. The seller had it working well in hisghouse! Either way, it sounds fabulous. Lots of tone controlability! And yes, the tuner is very good, if you need that. It is a much better unit than my Kenwood Kr 6600 from my teens!

  2. I have it and I love it. The sound is very rich and warm: from bass till high freqs. With Sony APM690 speakers accoustic pressure in 30m2 room is truly impressive. Getting the KR7050 slimmed my pocket for 180Eur but, comparing the quality of parts, the design and fatty slew rate of 200v/ms made me very cheap purchase. I would recommend Kr7050 over Kenwood KA601 / KA701 amplifiers.

    Thanks for reading.

  3. I just a mint one for $200 and a 9.5 / 10. Truly excellent condition with the vinyl peeling in 2 areas (extremely minor). It was marked at $350 at the vintage audio shop in my area…but he knocked down the price.

    They go for more then $300 (+shipping) for one in excellent condition on ebay.
