re: CR-1000

This is so far best sounding receiver/amp I experienced.

I also have Marantz 2270 but Yamaha CR-1000 is crispier clearer sounding and with bass getting lower. In comparison Marantz 2270 being a good amp in its own right is wooly sounding though with too much middle bass and not enouth lowest frequencies compared to CR-1000. My friends share my views when I present to them both amps (both are recapped).

Compared to later CR-1020 this one has better quality pcbs and runs cooler.
