    What a TANK!

    I have moved/fondled and possibly drooled on one. The "remote" also. Haven't heard it yet though.

    Yes, the B-1 is very much like a block of steel. Hoisted mine today setting up a system. Most people have never heard of the RU-1 remote control for the B-1. It's more a curiosity, not droolworthy like the B-1.

    a total sleeper from both, the looks and sund perspective.

    one would never guess it is so heavy or that it sounds so good....

    funny:
    Had a friend over and seen one of mine sitting on top of a steel cabinet (stored). He asked what it was and since he was curious I asked him to lift it just for kicks. His face turned red...he thought the B-1 was bolted to the steel cabinet..

    Yamaha definitely seems to be a quality company. Back in the 70's I owned a British made road bike(Viscount). It was a nice bike with a few flaws. The deadliest was that the Fork was made from Cast Aluminum. It was light but would eventually fatigue and break. Yamaha had bought the bike company around the time this flaw was discovered. Yamaha handled the recall of all bikes with this fork. The new fork was 100% steel. Eventually the bike company was closed down.
