Yes, this is indeed a TECHNICS forum.However, TECHNICS has gone out of the business.I am aKN7000 junkie and play the thing on a daily basis.Every time I do, I wonder how much longer it will last.Some day something may go wrong.At that time it would be nice to know what other KN7000junkies have moved on to.That being the case I very much need to know What current and former KN7000 owners have found as a suitable KN7000 replacement.Far as I'm concerned share away, I'm not offended. Love that 7000!
