Kenwood KC-X1 Pre & KM-X1 Power Amplifier

Post by superfi on Sat Mar 24, 2018 6:34 pm



The set was Kenwood's contribution of a flagship pre & power amp combo in the initial emerging AV market

Kenwood KM-X1 power amplifier has 6 channels and was rated by purchasers as "a ridiculously powerful and excellent sounding bit of gear". 

Combined with its original and very hard to find KC-X1 pre-amplifier it is a trip into Japanese Audiophile territory on an affordable budget. 

A user on Audioreview beamed: "The sound quality is better than any integrated or power amp I've heard for under 2 grand, and believe me I've looked hard for a long time to find an amp powerful enough to get my original factory built in California 15" JBL TPC (concert quality) subwoofers moving. In fact this amplifier not only moves the subwoofers into ridiculous levels of bass, it also still has enough current to allow the midrange driver and tweeter to still sound perfectly clear. There can be no comparison between this and new home theatre packages. The KM-X1 is on a completely different level. I would compare it to a Bryston 4B-ST before comparing to a Yamaha RX-2600."  (One must remember that in the early days of the emerging AV market, passives subwoofers were the norm)

It's a pre & power combination that still rival modern set ups for both stereo and AV applications (power section) especially when you factor in the consideration that today's AV receivers and amplifiers perform in a mediocre manner when pressed into stereo mode, hence for many, the necessity of a 2nd system dedicated to stereo causing additional expense. Sound is very open, detailed and weight with a sense of airiness!

Brief Specs:
130 Watts rms into stereo @ 8 ohm
100 watts into 6 channels
Phono built-in for MM cartridges

Price:
Kenwood KC-X1 Pre-amp - RM 1200
Kenwood KM-X1 Power Amp - RM 1400

Both for RM 2300!


The amplifier can be auditioned at our shop at APS, Lot 223 on the 2nd Floor, Amcorp Mall, Petaling Jaya
