I was a teenager when a new audio technology came to homes. It was called stereo!
I completed a 3 year vocational course in communications electronics and worked for many years as a technician servicing consumer electronics, with the main focus being on audio equipment. I then had the opportunity to work as an engineering technician in a research development group in an electronics firm that made automated test systems for the electronics component industry. After a few years, I was promoted to the position of engineer.
As time progressed, I found myself spending about 90% of my time developing firmware for embedded control and software for automated test systems. Eventually I left the engineering field to focus on developing my skills as a software engineer. Despite being a programmer/analyst by trade, I still have a love for all things audio.
I purchased my first Kenwood Basic M2A in 2002. It didnt take long to gain an appreciation of the Kenwood Basic series amplifiers. All of the Kenwood Basic M2s and M2As that I have purchased since then were in non-working condition. I have developed an in-depth understanding of their operation from the repair of over 60 Kenwood Basic M2's and M2A's as of this date.
As I have been performing repairs on the Kenwood Basic series power amplifiers for over 16 years, and over time have accumulated an inventory of parts for the Kenwood Basic M2 and M2A. I have made these parts available on the site to provide a single source for parts for Kenwood equipment repair.
This is a hobby site, not a commercial site. I have a full time job, so I support the site on evenings and weekends.
