Re-hooking up home stereo system

I need to re-hook up stereo system. It includes a Kenwood Amp. #KA-71, a Kenwood Tuner #KT-51, a Kenwood Turntable #KD-41, a Kenwood Tape Deck #KX-41, a Kenwood Reverb Amp #90IIB and Kenwood Speakers. Also it has a Sentrek Equalizer #SHQ 4210B. It all worked perfectly until I had to disconnect and move it. I got no help from and email to Kenwood. I am hoping you can help, at least with some pointers.

A home stereo system is not complete without an amplifier which drives the speakers. A preamp cannot drive a speaker. Try to read the labels at the back of the system...if it reads speaker then that is the amplifier output. Would you mind giving us what model is your system?

SOURCE: HELP NEEDED I am having trouble

In the first part use the following leads
1. Keep the Power amp as the base and connect to the Cd input the CD player, the tuner to the tuner input, the cassette deck - play output to the tape in ( amp) and Rec out of tape to the tape out(amp).
connect all the RCA sockets with the R&L in the same side of the input/output.
Now the graphic equaliser input must be connected to the Amplifier's preamp output and the equaliser's output must be connected to the Amplifier's preamp input.
Now the equaliser will work through the amp.
The left and right speakers can be connected accordingly with the polarity in order.
The second system can be connected similarily with the cassette deck, tuner and cd player connected to the input of the Amplifier using the R&L RCA sockets.
Connect the speakers accordingly and test.
Please connect each RCA cord one by one and do not mix them up.

Kenwood ka 996 integrated amp. The standby light will dont turn off. I also need to see if someone will tell how everything should be hooked up.


the standby light should be on if the unit is not 'ON' if you want the 894 to turn on when you power up the 996, then you will have to plug the ac for the 894 into the 'switched' ac outlet on the back of the 996
what specific problems do you have with this system

I just got a Kenwood system, i would like to know how to hook it up, it has, Kenwood power amplifier km207, kenwood stereo control amplifier kc 207, disc player dp-m 97, cassette deck ky-77 cw, stereo...


That's a pretty standard setup. RCA cables from the KM207 to the preamp (KC207), and RCA cables from all of the other components into the KC207. Speakers connect into the KM207

No Problem Yet with Kenwood Equipment. I haven't been able to connect units. I'm looking for the OWNER'S MANUALS for these Kenwood Items: JL-830W Speakers, KD-42RB Turntable, KX-42B Cassette...


Outs go to Ins. Turntable goes to PHONO. Tape Deck goes into Tape REC and Playback. All other inputs are Line Level and interchangeable despite the labeling. RCA cables all.

One speaker pair per speaker post set. Stripped ends of lamp cord suffice. Don't short anything or make any changes with power on.

It ain't rocket science.

You might find manuals at the manufacturer's support site, by using a common search engine or these guys...

I want tohook up a Kenwood KA-88 Amp. to a KT-58 Tuner to a DP-M5540 disc player and KA-68W Cassette deck. how do I do it?


Find the manuals or go by the basic INs to OUTs rule. REC = OUT, Play = IN. "Tuner" and "Aux/CD" are not literal. They're for anything BUT a turntable. But remember ONLY a turntable would ever use "PHONO".

This picture shows the rear of the KA-88

Connect the RCA Outputs of the Tuner to the RCA inputs for Tuner on the amp.
Connect the output of the Tape Deck to the Tape Input on the amp.
Connect the input of the Tape Deck to the Tape Output on the amp.

Select Tuner on the amp to listen to the tuner.
Select tape Monitor to hear the Tape Deck(s).

Kenwood Stereo


I presume you realize none of these things produces speaker amplification. A receiver would do that and facilitate graceful and simultaneous interconnections. But it's not a necessity for selective interconnective between them, just not all at the same time.

I can't find any details on anything you named except the Tuner.

Typically, the tuner would use an RCA pair to go to a receiver AUX, TUNER or other Line Level input for source selection and amplification. Lacking a receiver, run it to the Tape Deck inputs for recording.

Ditto for the CD changer, but you'll probably have to disconnect the tuner.

Am trying to hook up an older kenwood home stereo system and dont know where all of the wires go. There is a model #kt-87synthesizer, km-207 amplifier, double cassette kx-77cw, stereo control amp kc-207...


Okay you are going to need 5 sets of RCA cables of 3 foot lengths. Ensure the KM-207 is adequately ventilated unless you want to burn up the KM-207. Next you will want to place the KC-207 near the KM-207 and connect the "Output to Amp" from the KC-207 to the "Input" to the KM-207. Now you may stack the KX-77CW, the DP-M97 and the KT-87 Tuner in no particular order. I tend to place them sideways so I may access them just in case I don't like how it is set up. Unless I can access them from the back. "Output" or "Play" from the DP-M207 goes into the "CD Input" in the back of the KC-207. "Output" or "Record" on the KC-207 "Tape 1" goes into the "Input or "Record" on the KX-77CW. "Output"or "Play" on the KX-77CW goes into the "Input" or "Play" on the "Tape 1" of the KC-207. "Output" on the KT-87 Tuner goes into the "Tuner Input" on the KC-207. Here is a trick to help you new stuff uses color codes such as White or Blue RCA cable ends, and Red RCA cable ends to indicate White or Blue for Left channel and Red for Right channel. Now you didn't indicate how to hookup speakers so I will not assume you are concerned about anything but using headphones for listening. I hope this has been of assistance.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.
