Kenwood KC-X1 THX digital av control amplifier/tuner Picture and Description:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 This preamp processor decodes THX,dolby pro-logic,dolby 3 stereo,mono,and dsp logic in the digital domain.The Kenwood turns all analog inputs into digital signals for decoding and then turns them back into regular analog signals at the outputs which you then connect to outboard amps you own.There are no digital inputs or outputs just regular analog inputs and outputs. Serves as a preamp and tuner providing inputs for turntable, cd player ,two tape decks, 4 video inputs with rca or two with s-video and three monitor outputs with 2-rca and one s-video. There are 3 a/c plugs on the back and a pre out THX 25 pin plug for connecting THX amps. Has built in THX 80hz crossover on/off switch on the subwoofer output. Also has remote output jack for connecting other Kenwood amps. Includes am/fm tuner.. Comes with very hard to find DIN 8 pin cable, a 1/8" cable that connects the two units to transmit control signal information. When it was introduced the KC-X1/KM-X1 amp/preamp combination was Kenwood's flagship THX system. To quote from one owner’s online review: “ It (Kenwood KM-X1 power amplifier) has 6 channels and is a ridiculously powerful and excellent sounding bit of gear. It looks like a black steel behemoth. Combined with its original separate and very hard to find KC-X1 Pre amplifier it is a trip into Japanese Audiophile territory on a budget.” I have tested this unit and it works perfectly. Cosmetically it is very good to excellent. Any of the Logitech Harmony universal remote controls can be used with this unit, so it is still capable of remote operation.
