    I'm about to invest in a seperates system and starting with my dads amp and some floor standing speakers for hi-fi use mainly.

    But I can't find the manual or specs for my dads 'Kenwood Stereo Integrated Amplifier A-82'

    I've looked just about everywhere. Does anyone know of any way I can find this info?

    Thanks
    Luke

    Are you sure of the model number?

    The nearest I can find is the KA-92,but no specs available.

    With the quoted marking of 150W on the rear panel you would be looking at about 30-40W/channel.

    Maybe worth contacting Kenwood Direct if you consider it to be of value.

    Cheers

    I've found no references or Photos to the Kenwood A-82, but I did find some to the A-85, but I don't trust the power specs on them.

    I did find the owner's manual for the Kenwood A-93, the specs on the amp are as follows -

    DIN at 1khz to 8 ohms = 70w + 70 w
    IEC/NF at 8 ohms = 65w + 65w

    http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals\midim93.pdf

    Now assuming your amp is two models down from this one, I would expect it to be something like 20w per channel to 8 ohms.

    Searching Kenwood-USA only turns up a reference to the Model A-93. However, models numbers can vary from country to country.

    Kenwood USA model search -

    Kenwood - Home Electronics Owner's Manuals

    However, a search of Kenwood-Germany brought up several similar model numbers under the heading 'Verstarker' and the prefix 'KA-' -

    Kenwood Electronics Deutschland | Produktarchiv > HiFi > Verstärker

    These A-83 and A-85 models must have been extremely rare, or we would at least be able to find some Google-Images of them. There are a very few of the A-85, but they were not helpful in the information they provided.

    I think the best we can do is extrapolate down from the Model A-93.

    Just 20 watts huh...
    I was hoping to run something like B&W DM604 S2's or Monitor Audio BR5's from this amp. if its 20 W then that would be under the speaker systems spec...

    Anyway, thanks for the help, ive email Kenwood but I doubt they will get back to me any time soon...

    In that case, assuming it is working OK, it is probably a very good amp, and should have no trouble with a vast majority of consumer speakers out there.

    The distortion specs aren't fantastic, but they are still very good, and nothing to be concerned with.

    Overall, I would say you have the heart of a very nice system there.

    Also, fantastic that Kenwood was kind enough to send the spec sheet on.
