Prefer this Kenwood over Marantz 2275, has richer tone

I use this receiver to drive four vintage bose 901 speakers and it performs admirably at low and very high volume

Reviewed May 02nd, 2018 by youngdl

After recapping very quiet and clean sounding receiver. Can be very revealing of the source material quality on fm. Lots of tantulum capacitors in these and electrolytics don't often age well either. Checked a number of tantulums while recapping and nearly all had high esr values. I can now turn volume all the way up with no source on hard to hear any noise from the speakers. It has an excellent fm tuner section. It pulls in a lot of stations from a neighboring fm market about 75 miles away like they are local.



re: KR-7400

Listening to Doobie Bros on my KR 7400 and Klipsch Quartets as I type. This is a really great receiver. I used the optional quad loop to experience 70's Quad sound with an add on rear amp, but I eventually decided modern surround sound is far superior and went back to Stereo for my music. It is a clean, capable and reliable receiver. I initially thought it was a bit too bright sounding with some old Kenwood Kabukis, but my Quartets cured that. Loads of deep bass now. (The 777 D's are incredible speakers by the way, the original 777's kind of suck though.) So the end sound product also depends on the rest of your system. But the receiver itself is a powerful, very solid performer.

re: KR-7400

I am looking for a user guide for the Kenwood KR-7020 receiver but a user manual for the KR- 7400 would do just as well.
Anyone have a copy please?

I could copy the pages of mine for you.
