Find the conversation between M Chavez and Grenadeslio interesting and relevant to many AK threads re vintage Japanese tables. I have a Kenwood -500 in my stable of TTs and would not hesitate recommending one. Kenwood was a major player and their tables were as good as any of the other Japanese mfgs and the LO7D was very special, Kenwoods statement table. Grenadeslio said it all in a nutshell, buyer has to be educated and use due diligence when purchasing anything new or used. Much like if I was to buy a used vehicle I wouldn't be shopping in the USAs "rust belt" on a here today gone tomorrow lot, I'd be looking in southern CA around San Diego for garaged cream puffs from affluent owners who maintained their vehicles. If maintained a good number of the midfi and higher vintage Japanese tables were unintendedly built to last 100 years.
