My turn...

Here are my Yammies:

CR-1020 Bought dead at a garage sale, five bucks, cracked board fixed ($75), sold to sister-in-law, swapped back (case now badly scratched) for a Marantz, dead again.

M-35 Bought at an estate sale, low-power class A, sounds better than the CR-1020, especially if used w/o a preamp.

CR-220 Bought (cheap) at the Surplus Exchange, dead.

YH-1 TOTL headphones, bought at an estate sale (1!). They BLOW MY MIND!!!!!!

Some kind of Yammie soundcard, bought over eBay - excellent!

Laz

Merrylander - if you want two more dead Yammies to fix, you know what to do...

Yamaha one of the few brands that I do not have as many as I want.
CR 2040 great sounding monster needs case work.
CA 1010 I am following a thread about the relay clicking on and off so I may possibly get to hear what it sounds like.

In use:
CR-1020
CR-820
CR-840
In process:
CR-640
CR-820
CR-240
In transit:
CT610
CR-840
CR-620
Ready to go:
CR-820 triplet
CR-620
Sold, waiting pickup
CR-1040

When the CR-240 gets fixed it will replace the CR-820 in the shop, that will get a new faceplate and be auctioned. Forgot to note that I have a CR-620 faceplate and a CR-2020 faceplate, both in great shape.

My Yammy gear

In use at the moment is a restored cr-2020,cr-820 in the living room. In my playhouse is the ca-2010,ca-800,ct1010,and the c-4 preamp with my soundcraftsmen amp. In process of restoration cr-2020,cr-1000,cr-820 Parts units cr-620,ca610II,they both had fried power transformers. Restored and not in use at the moment are the ca-1010,and a ca-1000 My test set up for speakers and such is a ca-R1 (Japaneese ca-810) and a ct810 tuner,both look rough but work great. Wow thats 16 pieces Of vintage Yamaha audio bliss.Gonna have to then the herd eventually.

Y stuff

T-760 (hooked up to a Mac MA-6100 for NPR)
T-33 (gathering dust)
CR-420 (drives the "home theater" Mission 700s)
CR-620 (a gift-in-waiting for my son-in-law)
CR-1020 (in my home office, driving Mission 762s)

On the look-out for a CR-1000 (because an old girl-friend had one in 1984 that I'll never forget... either of them).

Currently working on the restoration of a CA1000 III, Japanese version for CA1020???

DC offet for Right Channel 35 mv, Left Channel 45 mv.

Felt the sound to be a bit thin when compared with a Kenwood KA9100. Any comments?

Greetings from Beijing!
