Here's an oddball...looks like a Model 600 amp with toroid transformers, and 'standard' looking knobs instead of the pretty fluted ones on the US amplifier...

Maybe it's just me, but I really like output meters. Still, I believe I could go for one of these!

That is such a cool lookin amp. Kinda funny, I was perusing foreign websites and came across taht one awhile ago and thought it odd that there were dual toroids in it. Very cool!

Mmmm, now why can't I find one of those in a thrift store. Heck, I'd probly swap most all my gear for it, except of course my frankenstein speakers.

more about it here too....

It never comes up on ebay, so I suspect it was a Japan market only amp. That web site says it is 1976 vintage, and came out at the same time as the KA-7300.

There also this one from 1978

which looks like the Japan market KA-907.
