Excellent Pre-amp with a plethora of functions, now long absent from pre-amplifiers like:
Dual switchable pre-outputs...
Semi parametric EQ that can be entirely bypassed...
3 (!) Phono inputs including a very good MC input...
Hard to find in a good condition, especially cosmetically.
Together with an M-4 (or M-2) Yamaha power amp a very good combo that sounds great for the money, even with Horn Speakers.



Yamaha C-6 Pre-amp

Does anyone have a comparison between this C-4 and the C-6. A fellow employee has a Yamaha C-6 which he offered to me once he locates it in storage. He said there was a manual with it so I have an idea what to do with that since there is no C-6 manual on here.

I always have mine bought in

I always have mine bought in 1978, it is in perfect condition, packed in Cellophane since many years ...
Thanks a lot for sharing !
