When I bought this amp the meter glass was cracked.  I was able to get glass cut and take the glass to a silk screening company and get it copied.  They did an excellent job, identical to the original.  I then sent the amp to “Echowars” for a complete rebuild, the 700M being his specialty.  I was not disappointed with the results.  The Supreme Series of Kenwood products, of which the 700M was one,  were followed by Trio/Accuphase. Kenwood made some fine products later under the Kenwood name but the commitment that went into the Supreme Series went to Accuphase, along with some of the Kenwood engineers.   Accuphase continues today with the same high standards.
