    Hi Everyone,

    Just picked up a Kenwood KA 3020 amp on ebay, and a fine amp it is too.

    However there is a push button feature on this amp marked 'Source Direct'
    and I have no idea just what it does other than it appears to lower the overall sound.
    Anyone help please?

    Thanks.

    DR

    It takes the tone controls (bass & treble) out of the circuit, so you get a truer sound.

    Agreed. Bypasses all tone controls so what goes in comes out effectively.
