Kenwood KT-8300

Kenwood KT-9900

1 9 7 6 1976
1 9 7 8 1978

preliminary

Healthy, good-sounding, technically excellent 6-gang tuner.
Much stricter looks-wise than the Supreme 600T but nearly as good, sound-wise.
Supreme notwithstanding, this is Trio's top before the L-02A masterpiece.

Later available as a KT-9900 depending on market, with identical looks but upgraded finish and "gun metal" color. The latter still fetches high prices in Japan - case in point.




More images soon from japanese sources not yet scanned.

And much more about the KT-8300's circuits at the FM Tuner Info.
