This model of Kenwood is not even remotely like the TS-930SAT.
The TS-930SAT had a heavy duty heatsink across the entire rear panel. It also had two very good fans to cool the finals, and a electromechanical antenna tuner built-in.
The TS-2000 has a very small heatsink, and has NO fan on the heatsink at all. There is one very small fan inside that cools the processor section.
The TS-930SAT would easily drive a pair of 3-500Zs. The TS-2000 will NOT drive 3-500Zs.
One needing legal output on all modes using the TS-2000 will need one of the solid state amplifiers that are available.
My choice was the ALS-1306. It is no tune, covers 160 through 6 meters. It is a two piece amp with a separate 240V power supply.
