I'm thinking of adding a KENWOOD POWER AMP THX KM-X1000 to my HT setup to power my two fronts (wharfedale 10.6's). Is anyone out there currently using older kenwood power amps in their setups, if so, what are they like? I'm struggling to find information on the internet.

I appreciate any responses, I'm looking forward to getting into the power amplification game. 

(Also if anyone has a KENWOOD POWER AMP THX KM-X1000 and wants to flick it for cheap I may be interested :D )

What's the rest of your system ?

These Kenwoods were nicely made but mediocre sounding.

THX is no guarantee of anything but high price.

If you're really keen, don't pay too much !

$200-250 tops.

Plenty of info via Google.

I have a 7.1 setup around an Onkyo TX-NR717 (I just purchased). I would like a little more power just to the front two speakers and I think with a stereo amp I will be able to add front high/wide speakers at a later date. I'd be happy to pay $200 for the kenwood amp, just have to find one first.  Dedicated stereo amps don't seem all that common.

I also enjoy the look of the kenwood amp which definitely counts.
