Have this Amp paired up with T-560 tuner and looks beautiful and the sound is definitely Yamaha tight.
The Main Direct option sounds great, while the treble/bass loudness seem a bit blurry with my speakers until half volume, then not needed after. thats why not a 9/10 or so. Speakers are custom bookshelf model #BR-1 from parts express.

Got one recently from a local dealer; great natural sound, with Main Direct for passthru, variable loudness, MM/MC cartridge choices. I have the matching tuner/decks (350/580) and they look beautiful, modern and classic at the same time.

Had this amp since 1982.... Put it through every imaginable test, great amp, performed awesome, flawlessly year after year! It's a generational amp... They just don't build them like this any more. Only after 30 years and much abuse, the volume crackles, even that could be repaired I'm sure.

Back than this was a decent amp,but still to expensive
for what it delivers. The phonostage is gradualy better
than that of the A560 but miles away from the A960.
Build quality is typical eighties,meaning its a mess in-
side.

re: A-760

Unfourtunatly i have no good speaker (old Sansui of 30 Watt per channel), so it distorts a lot when the volume is very high.
As years go by, several peripherals has been conected to (DVD-VCR-Cassete DECK-Radio Turner). I donĀ“t know but Phono Input seems to be damaged (none perispheral component sounds on that input).

Also, the Phono (Vynil player) use to cut the sound for less than a second when I increase the volume to 1/3 of the total ...

Any helpful suggestion is welcome.

Regards!
