Thumbs up Calling All Yamahas. Time to Post Your Pics

I like my Yamaha gear.
Two amplifiers, M-80 & M-70.
One C-80 pre-amplifier (just sold one).
Two T-80 tuners.
Two (or three?) cassette decks.
And, an antique cdplayer CD-X2.

My HT system uses all Yamaha speaker systems (which use cloth surrounds).

Oh, yeah, I have the R-2000 receiver hooked up downstairs, too.

Enjoy your vintage gear!

Had others but they are gone now.

Yamaha is pretty good. I've currently got:

FS1r FM/Formant Synth
TG-33 Vector Synth
QX5 MIDI Sequencer
MEP4 (x2) MIDI Processor (THE best)
MJC8 MIDI Router (8x8)

I've had a DX100, but sold it. The front door of my "mansion" in Japan was made by Yamaha, but I guess I didn't actually own that.

No Yamaha hi-fi gear here, but I do have an S80 synthesizer.

CA-1010. Beautiful to look at and listen to.

I guess that's how rich folks who own a stable of sports car feel like. Which one to take for a spin when you love them all?

I cycle my amps once a month.

T-85 tuner. Beats the crap out of my Dyna FM-5 even with an AVA tune up.

CA-2010, my main amp for music listening in the family room. Detailed and lots of power, but still very smooth sounding.

I have a CR620 and a R500. I used to have a B2 amplifier which I HATE HATE because it did something to my back . All the Yammies look beautiful. I love their asthetical design, EXCEPT the B2 ... ouch !

Yamaha has always been one of my favorite lines. I started out with a DT-250 for dirt, had a YA6 Santa Barbara for the street, culminated with an XS1100...

Oh, audio. Still have the C-70, great phono section. Was looking for a monster amp from them, but got sidetracked with tubes.

Have one of their receivers for the bedroom home theater, too lazy to go check model number.

Will acquire the amp someday...

A nice little CR-640 boxed up in the crawlspace that'll be brought out when I get the urge. I think those old Yamaha's are pretty underrated. Gino
