Now playing. Kenwood’s most powerful monster receiver, the KR-9600. Pretty stoked right now, so let’s defer to hifiengine.com for description:

“The Kenwood Model KR-9600 stereo receiver is a product that has been perfected through many years of developmental efforts by an engineering team that takes great pride in its long tradition of quality high fidelity component design. This new receiver extends the concept of component high fidelity to a level of performance never before associated with a single, integrated receiver. From its dual power supplies to its FET differential amplifier phono input to its unique tape facilities and absolute state-of-the-art tuner design, this is a receiver which makes no compromise with separate components.”

Check out these beautiful reclaimed wood guitars by Mark Wallace at Wallace Detroit Guitars. From wallacedetroitguitars.com: “Detroit has always been about music. And it’s always been about making things. Smokey Robinson. Jack White. Iggy. The Model T. The Mustang. The Coupe de Ville. They all have the same things in common: the vision to break all the rules in pursuit of something new – and the discipline to make whatever we make with obsessive attention to detail.
