Best sound I ever heard and I had loads of vintage and new gear. Bass is insane tight and deep, detail is there, continuous loudness is an amazing feature. Radio tuner is best possible.

Volume potentiometer could be better balanced at low volumes but still 10/10.

Extremely powerful and loud for its rating, you may connect the least sensitive speakers on earth, you may connect two pieces of rock and it will make sound out of them.



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.
