I just got today some new Kenwood stuff! Here is the list:

Kenwood VR-616 Surround Receiver

Kenwood KC-X1 Preamplifier

Kenwood KM-209 Power Amplifier

Kenwood DV-605 5 Disc DVD Player

from all those 4 the preamplifier and the power amplifier are the good stuff for me! Now I can replace my old KC-106 preamplifier and get rid of the tuner because the new preamplifier has internal tuner!

Nice find. Those vintage Kenwood amps produce much more power than rated. I picked up a KM-105, KC-105 and KT-75 for my girl late last year.
The KM-105 is rated to give 125WPC into 8 Ohms. It actually gives 178 into 8 Ohms and 252WPC into 4 Ohms. I would expect your KM-209 to be an overachiever also.

Yeah JoeE I have 2 of the KM-106 and I am very happy with the kenwood gears!

This is my whole Kenwood stuff I got home!

Kenwood KC-105 Preamplifier
Kenwood KC-106 Preamplifier
Kenwood KC-X1 Preamplifier
Kenwood VR-616 Surround Receiver
Kenwood DV-605 DVD Player
Kenwood DP-M98 CD Changer
Kenwood KX-68W Cassette Deck
Kenwood KT-75 Tuner
Kenwood GE-76 Graphic Equalizer
Kenwood JL-885 Speakers (2 pairs)
Kenwood KS-401HT Surround Speakers (center & 2 rear)
Kenwood SW-15HT Subwoofer

I have other brands home as well but this is just the kenwood! I am planning to get one of silver amplifier!

I like the KT-75 and the KC-105 how they match with the blue color! I had KC-206 but I got rid of it! It was supposed to be better than the KC-105 or 106 but not and in my system! It made the sound worse than before!

Next step is to get the C1 or C2 preamplifier to the collection :)

The thing I like on the receiver VR-616 is that it has for power subwoofer and at the same time it has internal amplifier for just regular subwoofer so I can use either one of them!
