IN TOP VISUAL & GREAT WORKING CONDITION.

15W. SERVICED & RECAPPED WITH UPGRADES


READ MORE ON OUR "HIFI REVIEWS" PAGE


Don't be put off by the 15w & lowest Model number, this is a lot better than you'd expect a 1974 15w amplifier to be.

Multivoltage & no DIN for Tape version with Metal lid.

Firstly they used a c.1969 early amplifier design for 15w, the CR-400 we have to sell shortly is 16w & this sounds a lot more fresh & open. Plays a good volume too, if you have 95dB Loudspeakers you'll not need more than 15w anyway unless you really want to Rock the House.

Cute UK version of this amp with the vinyl wrap on a METAL lid, the only 1970s Yamaha to have this.

Now Recapped & Upgraded it has a sound way beyond what you'd expect & a proper bass for our upgrades. We've upgraded this to a certain level not to outprice the amp to resell, if we see there is a lot more potential in this, if a lot more work to get that far. For how it sounds now, it'll impress for sure.

Condition is Like New, Top Lid is unmarked, Fascia beyond a tiny dot under the Yamaha logo is unmarked so a 9.5/10. Looks great, sounds great & is a bit of a hidden gem using the earlier amplifier design. Rewired with 3 core mains. The inputs as on the 1973-74 Yamaha aren't as bright as not plated like other ones if they are clean & contact correctly. Can run 2 sets of speakers with the usual limits as shown.

On Speakers, our 15" Tannoy Golds it matches well, with a pleasing sound with wide stereo. Bass isn't deep & strong at 15w but it's clean & not lumpy sounding. In use, as with other Capacitor Coupled designs, it takes about 1 min to settle or you'll near noises on using the Volume etc, if this is silent once settled. No noises on turn on or off on speakers, no relay in this amp. a good buy & far ahead of a starter amp.

All works, FM Stereo with ease, AM, Phono & Aux inputs.

A smaller sized amp 400mm wide x 133mm high x 292mm deep if 335mm Max Depth inc fittings.

THE AMP ITSELF WEIGHS ABOUT 8KG
