    Old KR9600 needs going over....

    Hello, My name is Bill and I am new to this site. I recently brought up my Kenwood KR9600 from the basement. I have had this receiver since the 70s. I was hoping someone could clue me in as to where I could get this unit re-furbished and what I should expect to pay. I am by no means an electronic tech, but would attempt something like this after some technical reading, so some advice in that area would also be helpful. Thank you!

    Welcome Bill. What exactly are the issues? If you take it to a tech, they will rob you. Unless you have a strong attachment I would suggest buying another vintage amp instead.

    It probably just needs a cleaning which you can do easily. Buy yourself a can of contact cleaner, open it up and away you go.

    Let me know what issues you are having and I can advise you further.

    Hi Bill!, as poppa already mentioned, a tech will rob you (trust me, they will)

    normally these amps shouldn't require that much looking after, if it still works, a good cleaning will do. Get yourself some deoxit and work on the potentiometers. if you have a multimeter, measure the DC offset, there's some good info here on that: Amplifier disortion, DC offset and You!

    maybe there are some bulbs burned out, but they're easily replaced...

    Good luck, and have fun!
