    How good are the Kenwood receivers?

    I've had the 6070 for 3 months and it has exceeded my expectations. I always wanted THX and pre-outs for my external amp(s).

    Sound and Vision measured 92 watts X 6 with all 6 channels driven. That is hefty power.

    The 6070 may be available for around $425, the 6060 probably about $85 less.

    My question is, are there any power differences between the two.

    I have the 6060 and to my knowledge, they both use the same amps. The power specs are the same.

    Thanks Leonard, I thought they were when I picked up the 6060 and the 6070 the 6060 felt heavier. Maybe because they use those metal knobs and other heavier parts. I read on a forum about the thx thing, and I do not think its worth the extra green. I would be happy with dd and dts. So basically we own the model that was sent to be certified. Nice trick sell both models double profit.

    So, Brian, what you are saying is that the 6070 has the same specs as the 6060 - only the 6070 is certified? Does the certification mean nothing? If not, there had to be a reason that one is and isn't........I'm asking this because I have been looking at getting the 6070, but wouldn't mind saving the cash if there is no difference, ya know? I'm trying to decide between the Pioneer Elite VSX-41 and the 6070 (or 6060, whichever the case may be). What's that about double profits.....didn't get that part.

    Good question Derek. After extensive research that is what I have determined. As I have read in other forums, and this one the 6060 lacks the preouts, thx modes, and one optical out. Other than that it is the same unit. So in my opinion thats what I am looking at know for a new receiver. Was going to get the 811, but everyone that has posted recently have said negative things about it.

    Check which amps they each have. Kenwood uses two different amps and I am not sure at what level the change takes place. I can tell you that there is a big difference in sound quality between the two even though they have the same wattage.
