I have also seen that with a few minor upgrades, these amps still hold their own with many of today's high quality amps.
There seems to be quite a bit of info on the net about these amps. Wish I could keep them for myself. It that wouldn't make much sense for me.

Interested parties are welcome to submit an offer. You can PM me if you don't want to post publically.

Very tempting. The only monoblocks I've had are Outlaw M2200s or the lower powered Red Dragon M100 monoblocks. Have the L-07Ms been inspected, refurbed or are they need of maintenance?

They have been services recently with many caps replaced. They are in excellent condition where most of these that are found are in rough shape.

Good morning. Below are some pictures of the actual amps for sale up and running in one of our test systems.

They are being fed by a Purity Basis mk2 and driving a pair of our 98dB test speakers. Virtually noise free and sounding wonderful.

Asking price: $650 pr.

Talk about Beauty and Beasts. Those Kenwoods must sound great but they look out of place next to Purity Basis Mk 2.

Best of luck with the sale. I'm out of the running for them. I took inventory of all the amps I have and have no room for the L-07Ms.

As it stands right now I may have to put a fully working Accuphase out in the cold in a garage based system.

yes, but the sound :drool:

If they don't sell, we are considering taking them ourselves to have around for various test systems. Maybe I should try them out with the Purity Ultra preamp before it ships out to its owner :shock:

Wow - that's taking me back.

Heard them years ago with Gale 402 speakers - the 401's were known as amp killers but the 402's weren't too bad - still not an easy load though which is a testament to how good the Kenwood's are.  Nice combination.  But actually paired my 402's with a Proton which many people still rib me about saying it was not powerful enough to make the Gales sing.  But after buying speakers the price of the Gales in those days didn't want to splurge on the amp - but whenever I hear of the Kenwoods wonder what might have been.

Thanks
Bill
