    Been a Yamaha fan since 1981 when I bought my first stereo as a freshman in college in Raleigh, NC. Got a BOTL integrated amp and tuner. Had few other pieces since coming back into the hobby about 6 years ago. Use a CR820 in my bedroom daily.

    Today got a good deal on a minty B2 and C2a. Sounding very good on my Altec 14s so far. Sorry for the cable clutter and poor presentation.

    A beast of an amp!
    Don't forget that it needs some TLC. Enjoy!

    Yesterday, I officially retired my 31 year old Onkyo A-3057 with a new, yes new, Yamaha A-S501 as the heart of my 2-channel system, and am absolutely loving it. The sound is pure Yamaha - unpretentious, neutral and clean, living up to the Natural Sound trademark. Here are a few pics:

    B-2 is built like a tank and it sounds ...YES Superb and I bet that is prolly an understatement, especially after it received the Vint Age touch ;)

    Got this CT/CA-610II pair from a local Goodwill for $30. Loose speaker selector, blown driver transistor, and fusible resistors replaced and amp was good as new. Tuner no problem. Also has been recapped. Later I had some intermittent background burst noise gently tapping with a plastic tuner tool identified the offending transistors and after replacing the pair in both channels its been great.

    Also have a CR-800 needed new output transistors,fusible resistors, back panel fuse holder, and lights replaced. Still sounds good with the original caps. Pictured with my Sherwood sitting on top of it. Also had the fun of restringing the tuner.

    Woohoo. Taking a step further into Yamaha country.
    Bought a pair of Yamaha NS-200M speakers which was it's first night doing 2.1 channel duties. Watched two in a row and no ear fatigue. Wife said it sounds like the movie theater and my daughter likes it.
    Yes!
    Played the movie Coco for our daughter which had an emphasis on guitar. These speakers really did shine with that movie.
    As others have echoed these speakers produce just enough sparkle without hurting the ears while the mids are so smooth.
    Glad to have them.
    Sorry for the crappy photo. Still have to finish the stands but threw them in there tonight for movie duties.

    I had a pair of those for awhile. Liked them a lot. Unfortunately, I didn’t have room for them and moved them on. I just noticed a seller on the bay from Japan is asking nearly $2000 each for 2 pairs. I think that’s just a bit high.

    Those big RX-Vs with the flip down covers are under appreciated. I've a pair of the older RX-V2090's

    I agree. In stereo mode driving only 2 channels, these beasts can easily hold their own against power amps with the same output rating. Even in 5 channel mode playing full range at 85 +db, I have yet to hear them strain with the PSB speakers that I have.
