    Hi Guys, I picked up a kenwood ka-54 amp today at the garage sale. As you might expect the first thing I do is plug it in and turn it on before I buy it. Of course I listen for the telltale click for the protection circuit. There was none so I almost didn't buy it. Since I paid five bucks for it, I took a chance. Well it works fine, save needing a de-oxit bath. I thought most amps after the 70's had protection circuits. Any thoughts?

    I've never heard of a KA-54. It could be it doesn't have relay protection. Pics of the beast would be nice to see.

    Sorry, It's no beast. It's a skinny cheap amp I understand it's rated at 50 WPC.

    Ah, probably an amp from a rack system. You should still hear a relay. Maybe it's a small one, hehe.
