That is niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice
The JVC under it ain't no slouch either.
Here comes my first Yamaha piece, an AX-592 I got used for 60€ a few months back in a near pristine state.
It works well with Focals 726v floorstanders and a breeze audio DAC as source.
Much better with this speakers than what I had before plenty power and yet a very easy listening.
The cool part is it has 2 switched AC outlets on the back so the dac powers with the amp, all with the remote
Here is one of my vintage Yamaha setups. I started out with very clean examples and had everything fully recapped and restored. Incredible sound from this vintage audio. This group is made up of the following.
Yamaha M2 Power Amp (two amps)
Yamaha C2X Pre Amp
Yamaha C2A Pre Amp (two pre amps)
Yamaha C2 Pre Amp
Yamaha C4 Pre Amp
Yamaha T2 FM Tuner
Yamaha CT 7000 FM Tuner
Yamaha K2000 Cassette Deck
Yamaha CDX 1050 CD Player
Yamaha YP 801BL Turntable
Yamaha YP D8 Turntable
Yamaha YP D10 Turntable
Paradigm Reference Speakers
Awesome set-up you have there !!
I wondered where all the worlds stash of preamps went..
Thanks very much, it is a real pleasure to listen to these fine vintage items. The Master Pre Amps are the C2X and C2A. As you notice I have a thing for Pre Amps. The others are just Slaves.
Ok, I'll play. My CR-1020
Wow BBS428, amazing!
I also just love the slim line preamps. I was fortunate enough to find a very clean C-2 and just had avionic recap it.
Thanks to avionic it now sounds as good as it looks and I'm a super happy camper.
^^^Very cool setup KNR!^^^
Wonderful gear, and lovely sideboard.
Auw, my eyes!
Need some advice from ya'll.
I'm looking to add a decent turntable to my stereo, nothing crazy, I'd only spin every once in a while.
Specifically a fully manual, affordable, vintage YAMAHA or new U-turn.
I've been checking ebay for months for a yammi but they're all either automatic or insanely expensive / overpriced.
My plan was to spend under $250 with a new cartridge, bc that's what a new U-turn with Grado Black1 costs.
Am I missing something?
I've actually given up and am super close to picking up a Technics SL-1500 locally when I thought I'd post here as a last effort.
Thanks all for any input!
If the Technics SL-1500 is in good operating order, it will fulfill your needs quite well.
My Yammy.....Located in my Shop, where I can blast it with my Bose 901's!!
Nice! You have the rare chance to directly compare those preamps to each other. So what say you?
This is a very clean looking system.
I just finished cleaning up and relamping these two in the pic. I've had the CR-2040 sitting around for a few years waiting for my ambition to catch up to the growing pile of stuff that needs some attention. I picked up the CR-640 a year or two ago at a GW for next to nothing. But when I thought of "my Yamaha stuff," I almost forgot the other pieces that have accidentally amounted to quite a pile (although I'd keep the silver stuff--and maybe the S2300--but wouldn't much miss the rest).
(Plus a set of surround speakers w/ a center and a sub around here somewhere)
so elegant looking and exceptional shape too
1978 YAMAHA NS-10M
One owner and all original condition, first release year.
It's only temporarily in my listening rig, where it really doesn't belong.
