    Maybe this has been done before but I was interested in knowing the number of Yamaha cr-3020 receivers that are in the hands of AK members.

    I'll start: bought mine off the bay in 2012 serial # 01899 The seller did an excellent packing job too.

    So that's - 1 in the hands of an AKer

    Isn't the power amplifier section basically the same as the M-4?

    Must be more AK'ers with these beautiful receivers out there. It would be really interesting to know how many worldwide "within reason" have survived over the years. I'm sure many owners of this classic are not aware of this site so we may never know. With it having been such an expensive piece when new, I wouldn't think that a significant number just got tossed to the curb when they stopped working properly.

    I don't imagine someone just "Tossing" it out working or not, It's such a statement piece worthy of keeping regardless IMHO.
