Today I have on our display a highly collectable Kenwood piece. This is a Kenwood KT-5500 tuner manufactured in 1978. The price for the new unit was around 175 dollars,...
We are quite busy here at Revintages. We’ve got another turntable for a little maintenance. The new toy is Japanese semiautomatic turntable from ’80s – AKAI AP-B20. Although it is very simple and basic – this is a great, fully functional device for novice vinyl collector.
- Belt replaced
- Mechanics cleaned and lubed
- Contacts cleaned with Deoxit
- Tonearm, stylus pressure adjusted, anti-skating fine-tuned
We are not going to put it on sale for now, we have a big AKAI rack with full set of components, but missing turntable. This will be a perfect match.
Currently we make photo-sets with nice colored vinyls. Later on these sets will be available for purchase.
We’ve also prepared a short video with a overview and even some sound test, see below.
