** This Ad is Marked as SOLD by seller and cannot be responded to. **

Picked up recently from a fellow CAM member. When I decided to get it I had a spot for it but much to my surprise my dead CA-800 was repaired fairly easily and since I have it and the matching CT-600 I no longer have room for this one.

The CR-800 was TOTL line until the famous CR-1000 came along. It contains the 4 gang tuning head and seperate AM and FM boards of the CT-800 which is one of Yamaha's best tuners ever. My CT-600, itself a wonderful tuner, has simplified circuitry with one shared AM/FM board. The transformer and main caps are the same as the CA-800. Later series were not built to the same standard as the x00 ones. The CR-820 that followed was lighter, had a 3 gang tuner and lost the Pre-Out/Main in jacks.

Some of the other features are 2 phono inputs, 2 tape inputs plus AUX and 2 each high and low filters. All up weight is over 30lbs.

In 1974 the CR-800 retailed for $580 US, probably about twice that in Canada. The later CR-1020 in comparison had a price of only $560. The only classic vintage Yamaha receivers that are clearly superior to the 800 would be the CR-1000, 2020, 2040 and 3020. Besides being one of the most attractive and best balanced designs with the greatest flexibility, the CR-800 is the best sleeper, under the radar deal in Yamaha receivers. I am asking the same very reasonable $80 I paid for it and I did take the time to give the tuning head a good cleaning which further improved FM recpetion.

All lights work as do all the controls.
