Kenwood’s legendary KD-500 / KD-550 direct-drive turntables are classic decks from an era when things were built to last.
Indeed, if decks like the KD-500 / KD-550 with this level of custom engineering were built now, they would cost many thousands of dollars. The Technics SL-1200 is a classic example – it’s been reissued and costs literally thousands! This is just one reason I love these Kenwood decks.
The only difference between the KD-500 and 550 is in the tonearm. The KD-500 came without an arm from the factory, while the 550 was supplied with a Kenwood arm. The idea was that you would then fit your favourite Grace G-707, or perhaps an SME Series 2 or 3 to the KD-500.
