    Finally a C-2A pre shows up on local CL. My M-45 is awakened from it's den. I had to take my wife out to lunch because it is ritual when I buy a piece of equipment. She's like, "why are you eating so fast"? Did I have meat loaf and mash potatoes (woof). She knew I was excited to get it rocking. Well, here I sit in my happy place. It was really the last piece to complete my Yamaha system (3 year wait). This really sound phenomenal! It's really like, bam in your face and not at all what I am used to with MAC. I just really wanted this bad for the phono stage and the price was right. There's two itty bitty scratches on top. The face is perfect. I am going to stay up all night. No, wait work at 6am. Darn!

    Thanks! I did not have time last night, but I am going to get it all set up in it's rack. I have a set of NS-1000 and a YP-D8 in ebony. That is the entire system with the S-2700 SACD. Stoked! Maybe I'll get lucky and snowed in for tomorrow. Expecting a foot of snow.

    Nice score on the C2a. I've been waiting for an a or x to pop up for a while but no luck yet.
    How do you like the S2700? I've got the 2300 and love it.

    Beeyuteeful! Finding one on a local CL is a pretty amazing find. :rockon:

    Once I get my C-2 recapped it's going to drive my M-85, I've seriously contemplated picking up a C-2a.

    Thanks all. It is an amazing player. It was recommended to me here four years ago and the member ( I think JMKW) clued me in to NOS, so I've had it since new. It has been a flawless performer and at budget price. A real sleeper and does everything right.I still haven't had a chance to got my Yamaha only set up done. Maybe this weekend.

    No inverted out on any of the the C-2's. Makes bridging a bit more challenging.But a single B-6..Sure.

    Now that I did not know. Only 1 pyramid would look a little awkward.

    But i just remembered that the C-2's do have pre-out 1 and 2. So running a pair of any amplifiers is feasible.

    Looking good Frank! Yammy gear has that affect on people, my CR1020 you swapped me gets lots of attention in my new digs. You still running the NLA's? I do miss those but they'd be too much for my smallish man-loft anyway, good stuff!
