If a picture is worth a thousand words, this thing would need about a hundred pictures to fully showcase its amazing array of settings and possible cosmetic configurations. To try to begin to list and explain all the available settings, controls and functions in the KD-AVX77 is an exercise in futility.

Individualism, personalization, customization, call it what you will, but it seems like everyone loves to make things theirs. Sometimes they do it to simply show off, sometimes just to be different, or sometimes just because they don’t like t [ … ]

The KO-NA3601 had plenty of authority to drive the 12-inch woofers to loud volumes, and sounded fine in the process. The bass was well controlled and deep, quick transients sounded natural without a lot of ringing, and generally speaking the amp sounded just fine indeed.
