Just saw this amp in the local SA. $45 CDN. Any opinions? How do these compare with the Sansui receiver(I've got the 771)? What's the wpc rating and other specs?
I'm guessing 50 wpc as that left and right channels have power meters and 50 watts is at the highest it goes. Is this a correct assumption?

Thanks! :banana:

I know of a CA-410, 610, 810, 1010; as well as a 400, 600, 800, and 1000. I ve never heard of a 510! Any way to get a pic? The 0dB mark shown on the power meter is the rated output per channel, not the highest the meter shows. And truthfully, any Yamaha integrated amp in that series is a jewel. Ask just about anyone here, Junior. You could do farrrrrrrrrr worse.

a manual (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=3280&item=3082324042&rd=1&ssPageName=WD1V) , I think she could be a Euoro-version only. :scratch2:

Oh, ok! Thanx, Bolly. That sure looks like a 410 II to me!
Junior? 35wpc, and IMHO, C$45 isn't bad at all if it's in good shape. Maybe the brochure's 40wpc are DIN watts? :scratch2: I know I'd snag it, especially if it had a voltage selector for use on 120V/60Hz.

Thanks for the pic... the CA-510 looks exactly like that 410. The shape is very good. No visible damage. Do you think they compare well to the 70s Sansui's or Kenwoods?

Personally? Yes. I used a Kenwood KA-3500 (40wpc) just before I got my Yamaha 1010. They're both great.

Hi,

I am new to these forums.

I would just like to say that there is a CA-510 Natural Sound Amplifier, I own one.
These are a BRILLIANT amplifier, you will get 75 watts per channel ( 4 channel ). The amp is 300 Watts all up. It is really a wonderful amplifier with alot of power, I recomend it to anyone after an awesome stereo amplifier.
Its a very good looking amplifier too.

Until I got my tube amp recapped I was using a CA-410II which I believe is the American version of the CA-510. Very nice amp great sound.

That's not right. It's a 35 Watt per channel (8 Ω) amplifier with 210 watts total power consumption. 17.5 Watts into 8 Ω, 0.05% THD, power bandwidth 10-40,000Hz..
