Kenwood VR-4090B Receiver
Introduction The Kenwood VR-4090-B is a receiver that takes on all challengers with a full suite of features, the latest inputs, a beefy 120-watt-per-channel amplifier section and a modest $1,150 price tag. The VR-4090-B can pull off tricks that are simply not yet possible with high-end AV preamps costing more than five times the 4090’s price tag. Among the 4090’s most important qualities is its ability to play back DVD-Audio discs via its 5.1 analog inputs. You ask how Kenwood can beat the high-end guys to the punch with so many features? The answer is that many of the Japanese AV electronics companies are more tuned into the latest formats and new technologies than some of their American counterparts, with manufacturing capabilities that allow for fast updates to products so that they are always cutting edge. Will the Kenwood VR-4090 be as upgradable as, say, a Proceed or a Meridian? Most likely, not but at ...

Kenwood DV4070 DVD-A/V Player
Introduction DVD-Audio is the most hyped new technology in audio since the compact disc. Now Kenwood is out with one of the first DVD-Audio/DVD-Video players on the market with the $1,000 DV4070. The DV4070 is a five-disc changer that will play nearly all of the media on the market right now including compact discs, CD-Video, DVD-Video and the new DVD-Audio format. However, it will not play DVD-Audio’s competing format, SACD. Like most changers, the DV4070 comes equipped with all of the bells and whistles that you’d expect from a mass market DVD player. These include instant access to the disc tray while a disc is spinning, a slick on-screen interface, an ergonomically correct remote and even a headphone jack for late-night sessions. The DV4070 is the standard 17 inches wide and will fit on a shelf in a rack-mounted system. About DVD-Audio The DVD-Audio format is specifically designed to utilize the large-scale storage capacity of ...

Krell KAV-1500 Multi-channel Amplifier
Introduction The KAV-1500 is Krell’s $8,500 powerhouse five-channel amplifier, which delivers 300 watts per channel into eight ohms (600 watts into four ohms). Housed in the standard-size chassis are two massive two kVA toroidal power supplies with 14 proprietary Krell transistors per channel to ensure the highest level of musical accuracy. The KAV-1500 provides both balanced and single-ended inputs for maximum system compatibility. The most unique feature of this amplifier is Multiple Amplifier Throughput (MAT), which sends the same musical signal to all amplifier channels using only one of the balanced or single-ended connections, thereby reducing installation complexity with multiple amplifier systems. Individual channels can be bridged as well. In fact, bridging up to four channels produces a whopping 1,100 watts. To make changes to the amplifier’s configuration, such as bridging channels or setting it for MAT, it is necessary to remove the top of the unit and use the supplied jumper cables to create new ...

Kenwood VH-600 / DM-VH7 Mini System
Introduction This contemporary mini-system isn't for the faint of heart. The VH-600 is the amp, receiver and CD player section. The DM-VH7 is the MD (mini-disc) section, which is optional and sold separately. The list price of this system is $599.00 for the VH-600 and $399.00 for the DM-VH7. Before we go further down the road with this review, I've got to tell you, I was quite a skeptic about the whole MD format thing. I thought, oh boy – great – another format to deal with. Well, I'm pleased to say this unit has turned my head. Read on. We'll start off with the features. First, the VH-600 / DM-VH7 is a bookshelf system. Kenwood has had the foresight to design the units for vertical placement. You might say; well, that's all fine and good, but how would I read the display? I'm glad you asked: the units have a gravity-triggered ReadRight backlit display, ...
