Default Re: Kenwood KRF-X9992D

I found this review...
http://www.homecinemachoice.com/revi...dKRF-X992D.php

Glanced over it, but it sounds liek there are some problems. A muddy sound is what I saw a major drawback.

Also, kennyT you're right, it is definitely a European model. Kenwood generally places a "D" at the end of the model numbers for Europe. ie: the VR-5900 here in the USA is known as the KFR-X995D in Germany. Also, if you look at the back of the unit you can see the power consumption. Everything is based on 230V, and you can see the switched plugs on the back are European standard.

Just FYI...

BTW. I actually got fed up trying to find information for the receiver and did a search for home audio forums. Joined a couple of em for this information, but I'm sure I'll be getting comfortable here seeing as when I get interested in something... I go gung ho!

Thanks for the welcome.

Hmmm. so with 230V still works with regular sockets in the US correct? He has it hooked up at his house right now. I actually haven't gotten a chance to listen to it yet, as it was just mentioned while we were watching some TV.

I think you are safe unless he has 230 V outlets in his home here!

$300 for four speakers and a functional receiver? You can't beat that deal. It might cost you as much to get a mated center channel (or more but...)

Yeah,

Years ago I used to routinely shop the want ads for high end audio for deals like these.

My best have been a complete system of Aragon 4004 MkII amp, 24K pre, Proceed PCD 2 (a player I sold and it cost me seven times as much to come close to it's sound!) and the original B&W 802 Matrix's with a rack and MIT cable for $1800. I also got a McIntosh C28 pre and 2105(?) amp that I got for $400 and sold. The pre went to Japan for $1,200 alone and when I told the guy (he wanted Global Express mail) it would cost ~$300, he sent the cash! I suspect it is sitting in some display curio somewhere...
