    KLH Model 20 Plus

    The boxes do have more volume. As far as I can tell there is no effect on speaker quality. They sound great. I came across a scan of the original owners manual. If any model 20+ owners need it you can PM me.

    KLH Model 20 Plus

    I had mine serviced and it was about $50. Worked perfectly once I had it serviced and the guy even put in a new cartridge for the turntable. Love the unit. I don't think I will ever part with it. Personally I would just take it to someone who knows KLH. I found a guy who knew vintage KLH units really well, had a lot of parts, and good knowledge on how to fix it right. Worth it in the long run if you want top dollar for it.

    Andy, Thanks for the reply. Your article was one of the first things I read when trying to research the 20 plus. Interesting about the numbering, I guess there must be more of the 20 Plus around than people previously thought. When I dropped the unit off to be serviced the guy knew all about KLH and AR history. He gave me a bit of history lesson. He did say that the 20 takes a certain type of cartidge that is hard to find. Has anyone out there had experience finding a cartidge for the turntable?

    I just dropped off the stereo to get serviced. Hopefully it can get fixed. Still looking for some answers to a few questions if anyone knows. How were these units numbered? What cartridges can be used? Does anyone have a scanned copy of the original owners manual to a model 20? Thanks!!!

    KLH Model 20 Plus

    The unit has two auxiliary inputs and so I hooked up my ipod and it worked great. The hum/buzz/crackle/ isn't present when I switch it to the auxiliary input. So I guess it has something to do with the FM stereo. Its present with the phono too but its much quieter. The speakers have a rich full sound which I really like. What are the best cartridges to install in the turntable? I really want a nice cartridge because I listen to a lot of vinyl and thats why I bought this machine. I know there are some audiophiles on here so help me out!!!

    KLH Model 20 Plus

    I recently picked up a Model 20 Plus. Its got an amazing look and I love it. I am a newbie to KLH and this unit specifically. I looked through every page of this forum looking for more info on this system. What I am looking for is a scanned pdf of the original owners manual or maybe one from just a model 20. Another question I have is how hard are these to work on? Can I take this unit to any shop that works on stereos and expect them to be able to work on it? Or do I need to send this unit somewhere specific to get it serviced? It seems to have a low hum/crackle/buzz that is present with the FM and Phono playing. Nothing seems to get rid of it. At first I thought it was the speakers but even with them disconnected and headphones hooked up its still present. The balance also dosen't seem to work. I read on here that there were 3500 of these produced. I was also wondering about the numbering of this system. Mine is numbered 004741.
