    I used to sell the RX-850 and I picked one up a while ago to play around with. Excellent receiver, quite reliable, very substantial and very much under the radar. They usually go for bargain prices.
    90's Yamaha receivers are just beginning to be appreciated for their true quality. BPC they are not!

    I use my C-4 with a B-5 (Japan version of M-2) and you definitely want to get them going together.

    My first receiver was an RX-360, 1993 build that my dad gave me when I was 13 or so. I had that for a good 20+ years and never really wanted for anything else. If I ever find another one in really good shape I'm going to grab it.

    Here we go, recently acquired as a set (apart from the speakers)...

    Also got a spare amp which doesn't work properly (one for another thread I think).

    Nice haul. British speakers + Yamaha amplification = winning

    At one point I had a Yamaha CA-1010 integrated and T-1 tuner, both acquired cheaply and in excellent shape. I foolishly sold them. Not a good move. :no: Oh well, at least they went to someone here on AK. I recently picked up a CA-810 and CT-800 which eases the pain.

    Looks so much better without the blue filter in the lights. I did the same thing to mine. Because the meters are silver you get this almost champagne-colored glow. I wish they were just a tiny bit brighter though. I've been wanting to do LEDs with mine but I'm afraid the color will be wrong.

    I couldn't find any reference to the T10 tuner on the Tuner Information Center site. Is it unknown to them?

    I haven't found any reference to the T-10 and just a brief listing of the A-10 at radio museum.

    IIRC the double digit Yamaha models from that era were sold in mass market stores vs audio stores which had the three digit models and there does not seem to be much info out there on them.

    Any clue what the comparable audio shop market model might be?

    Not really. When I was selling Yamaha we would occasionally have a shopper come in with a brochure from one of those models. Unlike the later HTR/RXV series they were not the same as what we sold. Some models were clearly cheaper affairs, receivers with built in EQs and the like. That was in the mid 80's to early 90's, your units look older than that so I am not sure what the deal was back then.

    Integrated amps with that sort of low profile are kind of a British thing, I wonder if it was designed with that market in mind.
