Look up the onwers, or users manual for the KRX-593 or 793. I found it on manualslib.com. I have emailed them and asked them to add our beloved KRX-891 to the title search. It helps us all.

Does anyone have a user or owner manual for the Kenwood KA 1010 integrated amplifier. I have a service manual. What I need is a manual on how to operate the amplifier with multiple inputs.

How do i get a free service manual download of a kenwood ka-127 model stereo integrated amplifier in any digital format?


I doubt you will be able to find a digital copy, and Kenwood dropped their home audio line 2+ decades ago. I probably have a hard copy of the manual, as I was a Kenwood Factory Service Center for over 25 years, however, it is not free. If you would like more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Integrated Amp to Power Amp


Unfortunately, there is not. You risk over driving the amp if you do that

Power amplifier kenwood, power led blinks, no sound


There will be noaudio coming out , if the protection circuits is

sensing a fault or overload , just to protect your precious speaker

from further damage ( or the amp itself ).

These needs servicing.

My kenwood ka-128 amp keeps randomly shutting off. what can i do to stop it from shutting off? Do i need more power?


you can calculate power needed as follows:-
amplifier power must be 20% more than the total power of all speakers(if total speakers power is 100 watt)you need amplifier of 120 watt at least more is ok.

Kenwood KA-127 P-off response


This unit is likely to be in "protect" mode. This means that a problem has been detected it the final stage of the amplifier section and the speakers are disabled to prevent damage to either the speakers of the amp. This can be casued by a poor solder connection or defective components inside the amp. Without taking internal measurements, I can not say for sure. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$40 range for this repair. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

Vintage Stereo Connection ???


Hi spanky

Where to start :) I am excited thinking about them :p You got 2 totally cool pieces of classic vintage gear there in the C2 and the Marantz. I have a C2 preamp myself (gathering dust but wont sell it cos its excellent) and the marantz would be totally cool to have(but then I am a little biased towards 70's vintage marantz). They ruled the roost in HiFi amps throughout that decade.

Because they are both integrated amps, you could use them as standalone systems with a pair of speakers, and just plug your favourite gear into them. If you just wanted to run up a nice sounding HiFi, I would sell the kenwood gear and just keep the Marantz. The Kenwood kr1100 has the edge in power, so if it is grunt you are looking for use that. Because vintage sound is all about stereo, you only really need an integrated amp to get great results.

the specs are
# Kenwood Model Eleven G (KR-11000G) Receiver
120W per channel min RMS, both channels driven, at 8 ohms from 20 to 20.000 Hz with no more than 0.03% total harmonic distortion.
Dynamic power output 440W at 4 ohms
Power bandwidth 5 Hz to 70.000 HZ
Frequency response 5 Hz to 100.000 HZ -1.5dB
Signal to noise ratio 115dB

The marantz is a little lower in power at 75rms a channel, but will have the sonic edge in vintage sound over the kr1100. Look them up on ebay and you will find that they do have some value to collectors and people seeking nice tone. There is an 1152 for sale here for AU$900

Best bet is to fire up the 2 integrated amps,and see how they are going. Run them for several hours to be sure there is no strange noises and crackles. Then decide if you want power or finesse.

You could also run both amps from the C2 preamp by connecting to the Amp in connections to the rear of the integrated amps.

happy to talk to you more about it, hit me with a Fixya if my advice was helpful to you. I would keep the marantz, use that and sell the rest and buy some nice speakers:)

KENWOOD Power Amplifier


The power amp does need an imput signal ie. tuner, cd , and such to play. You can use the power amp with the other equipment.
Good Luck
