Just finished relamping a dingy (not anymore!) CR-800 receiver I got at that auction site. Had a pair of new filter caps laying about that happened to match so I threw those in, too. Cleaned up the insides as best I could, new thermal grease on the output transistors. Man, is this thing built well! The way the front and rear panels tilt back and out of the way is simply . . . breathtaking. Someone really thought about what it would be like to go back inside the unit to maintain it! It seems to run hot by design, and I saw scorch marks on the power supply board, some on the power transistor board, but I finally hooked it up to some good speakers and, my God, this thing sounds absolutely amazing! Nothing like the CR-600 or other Yamaha gear I've had. The bass extension is simply marvelous, somehow matching my prime bass monster, an 80 watt per channel Scott 380R receiver, and the tuning section still works, pulling in very clear FM from what I can tell so far. Don't get me started on the beautiful case and how neatly the chassis slips into it, or those amazing switches and dials. I can't stop playing with them, they just feel so good when you use them! Frankly, I am utterly amazed that something with this many parts crammed into it is still working! I haven't seen too many amps/receivers with this many caps/transistors/diodes/etc. per square inch! It's like a Tokyo highrise in there! Anyway, color me impressed. They don't make 'em like this anymore. Sigh.
