    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 :beerchug:

    Thanks
    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.

    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.

    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.

    Nice! You have the rare chance to directly compare those preamps to each other. So what say you?

    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).

    CR-2040
    CR-640
    CR-620 (x2)
    DVD-S2300
    RX-V2092
    HTR-5840
    HTR-5835
    RX-730
    KX-630
    CDC-50
    (Plus a set of surround speakers w/ a center and a sub around here somewhere)

    One owner and all original condition, first release year.
    It's only temporarily in my listening rig, where it really doesn't belong.
