Beautifully restored and fantastic sounding KA-5700. You will hard pressed to find one better. Here are the key updates and upgrades made to this already iconic integrated amplifier:
**Green Patina powdercoated case (satin, textured finish) **ALL electrolytic capacitors were replaced (FC in PS, Cerafine, UFG and UKZ in audio) **ALL diodes were updated except the germanium ones for the meters **ALL resistors 1/2W and up were updated with same value metal film **ALL 1/4W 5% carbon film resistors were updated to 1% tolerance metal film ones **ALL transistors updated except for outputs and phono stage JFETs **New lamp and fuses **Potentiometers and switches received the prerequisite Deoxit treatment **Main filter caps bypassed with film caps and upped from 6800uF, to 10,000uF
This integrated is no joke. These were from the vintage days of hi fidelity where components, build and direction created the distinctive sound. This integrated just had a resurrection to keep it running for more years to come. Plus it is a wonderful art piece that you can most definitely showcase in your collection or office system.
