I bought my KT-5500 new back in 1977 as a high school graduation present to myself. Paired with a Kenwood KA-3500 and some Kenwood LS-406 speakers I rocked these components way passed college and into my adult life. The LS-406's are long gone but the tuner still strongly pulls in the crap that passes for radio these days and the amp is still pushing hard. I love the two tuning meters as we'll.
