KENWOOD STEREO AM / FM ANALOG TUNER
KENWOOD KT-413 / KT413 TUNER
SERVO CONTROLLED, ‘AUTO-SEARCH’ TUNING
Our technician has completely gone through
and 'Certified' this unit.
Everything was cleaned inside and out including extensive cleaning of
all contacts, switches, controls, motor drive and I/O jacks.
Dial cord repaired and restrung.
Repaired motor mounting plate.
Fuses checked and replaced where necessary.
All Dial lamps replaced with new bulbs.
We also extensively aligned the tuner front-end, as well as the 'MPX'
circuit for optimum AM & FM performance as older internal tuner
components have always drifted on vintage gear over the years.
Tuner Presets are for manual / ‘user placement’ indication as tuning
sensor doesn’t read them, and we were not able to address that.
electro / mechanical work, unit was fully detailed cosmetically, inside
supply hum of any kind. It's dead silent!
All functions test fine.
Cosmetics are in excellent condition.
Following restoration procedures, the unit was run continuously for 48
Very impressive and classy looking Kenwood KT-413, AM/FM Stereo tuner
with performance to match. Handsome, 'Silver-Face' with clean
functions. This tuner 'sounds' INCREDIBLE!!!
Not sure why, but this tuner is one of the best performing tuners we
have listened to in a long time. The ‘Auto-Search’ function works
brilliantly. Very ‘solid’ locking when it finds a station.
‘Station-Lock’ is positive with no detectable drift. This is on BOTH AM
and FM. Very 'phat' sonics, with incredible presence and depth. A/B
testing with this tuner was an 'eye opener' for us, and we've heard a
lot of gear. This tuner is very well built including rotating internal
ferrite rod antenna.
preset markers do not function but still work as ‘manual indicators’ to
show where your favorite stations are.

This tuner is in very good condition. Again, we have completely gone
through this unit. Looks NEAR NEW both inside and out.
This tuner has a very selective FM section and
an above average AM section. Much better than most stereo tuners. The tuner preset markers do not function ‘automatically’, but still work
to show where your favorite stations are. Again, I think I can safely
say, it's probably one of the best sounding, most 'musical' tuners,
we've ever heard (and yes, we've been doing this for almost 30 years).
Looks beautiful, works and sound great! Includes AM
ferrite and FM dipole antennas. Measures 15.5" wide x 11" deep x
5.5" high and weighs 9 lbs unpacked. Includes our standard 90 day
