I have never owned or used Yamaha gear untill recently. With all the good things I heard about Yamaha I decided to take the plunge and got myself a Yamaha M-4 power amp, 120 WPC, and a matching C-4 preamp. All I can say is that I am very impressed with the sound quality and great build quality. I may become a die hard Yamaha fan.

T-550 (IIRC) bought new
K-300 tape deck bought new, inherited
R-500 receiver bought new, inherited

CT-610II recently acquired
CR-1020 ($5 garage sale find)

3 different Yamaha single-disc CDP's (all found at the town dump/swap pile)... don't recall the model numbers

Hotgas I know where you are coming from, I had an A-1 integrated and carried it home on the bus, but the last half-mile was on foot. That sucker was really two monoblocks on one chassis - ouch.

Working on it

I just bought a C-80 from Bully, once it arrives I'll marry it up to my M-60 amp. I also have a, non-working at the moment, SX-1050 and R-300 bedroom receiver.

I doubt anyone has heard of my speakers but they're Toby's. I bought them in 1988 in Fort Worth Texas (the only place you can buy them). If you have a minute take a look.

Always wondered what equipment matched it when it came out. After seeing JCturboT's 2000 series system I know know.. very nice looking system.

Got a TC-511S just laying around and for sale if anyone wantes a cassette to match their silver faced reciever.

M-80 amp
T-7 tuner

Both great pieces of gear. I a paid all the money for the amp bacause it was in mint condition before UPS dropped it. The tuner was $100 and I would put its sound quality up against any tuner made.

R-1000 receiver (paid $8!) - 100w/ch, only digital receiver I'd consider worthy enough to call 'vintage' (1980)
YP-D8 TT (paid $5!) - amazing mass, warps local time/space around it...

I bought a little Yammie receiver from Toasted Almond I can't remember what it is, I haven't plugged it in yet but I will be using it to demo my new HTD speakers this weekend and I will take a pic of it. It looks a lot different than all the other Yammie gear I see in here.

A $10.00 garage sale CR420 reciever powers the sound system in the credit union branch that I manage. In my PC room I have a pair of NS25T speakers going. They came from Goodwill.

That's it,

Ed

Used to have a Yammie A-700 integrated and a T-700 tuner. SWEET stuff...wish I'd never sold it. (At the risk of being struck by Matushita lightning and being branded a heretic by my followers) it sounded better than anything I've ever owned by Technics.

CA-1010 amp
CT-1010 tuner
MX-35 amp
CDC-505 cd player

The CA-1010 is one of the nicest sounding amps I have, the best of the SS stuff at least.

The MX-35 is a nice little 4 channel amp that I bought to use in a computer system that never got built. Its also great for use with an active crossover.

CA610 that needs to go on ebay when I can find the time. Nice but not a keeper for me.

Also a YP511 and YP450.

Actually, would like to get my hands on a A1. They are kinda cool.
