Kenwood DC-20


The DC-20 may be a portable mini stereo component system, but it has a heart of pure Hi-Fi gold.

That's why it can be stationed as the second or third Hi-Fi system at home with such satisfying results in terms of sound quality.

After all, Kenwood engineers have not minimized their audio expertise along with the DC-20's weight and size.

When you take the DC-20 away with you on vacation, however, the system really shines. Most people have to put up with the ordinary sound from conventional radio cassettes. With the Kenwood DC-20, you can actually take your valued Hi-Fi sound with you.

Install it at the weekend or vacation house, or in the recreation vehicle or boat, the sound you'll enjoy is genuine Hi-Fi.

You can even strip it down to its cassette-tuner core for outdoor Hi-Fi recording or listening through headphones.

But the DC-20 offers even more. Its on-board computer and logic control provide you with automatic systems, such as direct access to any music on tape, multiple repeat, synthesized automatic scan tuning and memory presets; systems that are just perfect for modern lifestyles.
