This kit adds Super DLD to a Kenwood Basic M1 power amplifier.
Item # 8002001
This speaker terminal assembly replaces the factory speaker terminals in a Kenwood Basic M1 power amplifier.
Item # 8002006
This pc board assembly replaces the RCA connectors in a Kenwood Basic M1 power amplifier.
Item # 8002007
The Basic M1 uses a basic long tailed pair with a resistor in the emitter circuit for the first stage differential amplifier. This approximates to a current source, but is not as good as a full active version. This modification adds an precision active current source for the first differential stage.
Item # 8002032
The Kenwood Basic M1 power amplifier was designed with the bias diodes mounted on brackets that are attached to the heat sink. The leads on the bias diode are not long enough to allow mounting the bis diodes directly on the heatsink. This modification allows the bias diodes to be mounted directly on the heat sink for better thermal tracking.
Item # 8002041
This pc board assembly replaces the single turn 500 ohm open frame trimmer potentiometers with sealed 10 turn 500 ohm trimmer potentiometers. A completely assembled set of 2 are included to replace the bias adjust potentiometers in both channels.
Item # 8006002
This kit replaces all of the small electrolytic capacitors in a Kenwood Basic M1 power amplifier with high quality Nichicon capacitors. The kit includes Nichicon MUSE, FG and FW series capacitors that are designed to give premium sound quality when compared to general purpose capacitors
Item # 8104003
This relay replaces the muting relay in a Kenwood Basic C2 preamplifier. Failure of the muting relay can be the cause of no output.
Item # 8101016
This module replaces the Omron G2Z-222P-US 24VDC relay used in the Kenwood Basic series audio power amplifiers.
