Kenwood KD-600 Turntable Service & Setup

In this video, I explain some considerations when correctly setting up a turntable like the legendary Kenwood KD-600.

This particular KD-600 came to me very poorly set-up. The deck’s owner received some very bad advice from, of all people, Ortofon! I’m a big fan of Ortofon cartridges, but clearly not everyone there knows what they are talking about.

Anyway, I managed to get this deck set-up very nicely with a new Ortofon LH-4000 headshell and Ortofon Quintet Bronze MC cartridge. This is an excellent combination, very revealing and a decent, though not perfect match for this SME 3009.

Check out the other Kenwood KD-600 and KD-650 articles I’ve written, and enjoy the video!

  1. Very informative clip! I’ve had similar issues trying to use vintage ADC Integra carts on my KD 2055 & KD 600. Once I actually got one that still had the auxiliary weights it was all good. As you were the impetus for my purchase of a KD 600 Mike, I must tell you that not a day goes by while I’m spinning records that I don’t think about your recommendation & how it enhanced my audio experiences more than any other single factor of which I’m able to recall! Thanks so much sir, I really appreciate it!!
