I'm currently listening to the Rotel RX-400A that I bought new back in the 70's slowly die and am looking around for a suitable replacement. I've noticed that Yamaha R-9 aren't bringing much money. The only con that I've seen in searching for info is that they run hot when in Class A mode. Most owners rave about them and former owners regret selling them. The only reason that I can see for the modest prices is that they don't have wooden cabinets which is nice but if I'm listening to it with my back turned I don't notice the plastic. Is there something I'm missing the R-9s seem like a lot of power and sound for the bucks, any thoughts?
