8 January - HOLD FOR P.

A vintage beauty. Face Plate, Controls and Dial Glass are without flaw. Case in Very Good+ condition, consistent with age and careful use

A beautiful piece of human and industrial engineering

“…(T)he CR-800 is right up there with the very best audio equipment at whatever price.” “The CR-800 is a definite winner.”
{June 1974 Audio Scene Canada magazine, AudioLab Test Report – copy included, see below}

The CR-800 was the top-of-the-line in this series of receivers from Yamaha, until the (somewhat odd-ball looking) CR-1000 was introduced a year later

“Minimum 50 Watts per Channel, Continuous RMS Power, both channels driven, into 4 ohms from 20 to 20,000”. 45 watts per channel/ 8 ohms

Strong even signal, equal in both channels; excellent tuner

Yamaha established their minimalist approach to lighting on this series of receivers – here there are 4 incandescent lamps total, 3 at the meters and one in the tuner pointer/ cursor. All 4 have been replaced with new lamps of the proper size and rating

In addition to AM and FM/FM Stereo, there are input connections for: 2 Phono(graph)/ Turntables, Aux(iliary) and 2 Tape Decks. Note that any high level input (that is, NOT Phono) can be used for ‘smart phone’, iPod, CD, DVD, MP3, VCR, TV, XM or SIRUS, etc. All inputs are working. {Though I haven’t used Mic(rophone) – if that is important to you, you’re welcome to bring yours}

Dimensions (from Manual): 17¾ inches Wide x 6¼ inches High x 11¾ inches Deep (474mm x 158mm x 300mm)

Has PreAmp Out/ Main In jacks for disconnection and separate use of PreAmplifier and Power Amplifier, and to allow connection of equalizer or signal-processing accessories

REC OUT Selector “permits simultaneously recording and listening to different program sources”

Has Yamaha’s continuously-variable Loudness Control, not a simple On-Off switch. “This boosts the extreme low and high frequencies to compensate for our ears’ reduced sensitivity to these frequencies at low volume. Set it to the FLAT position while the VOLUME control is set to your normal highest listening level. Turning the control counter-clockwise will reduce the volume but will retain the natural balance between low and high frequencies.”

Pick-up/ meet-up only, Barrie and area. Auditions welcomed and encouraged. Asking $250

{$10 from this sale will be donated to the Salvation Army}

{Please see my other listing for my Yamaha KX-393 Stereo Cassette Deck with Auto Tape Tuning, Manuals (pdf), Tapes, etc. I can 'package' the Cassette Deck with the Receiver for a significant reduction in combined price}
