Solid built little receiver - does not have the look and feel of a Marantz 2215B 2216, but the tuner is above average and way better than today's digitrash. My CR-400 had a dead left channel (I replaced two power transistors and a fuse) and the power switch has a mechanical defect (always on) I will replace it tomorrow. The E-model has DIN plugs instead of RCA sockets so you'll need DIN RCA adaptors. The other low point is the woodcase which - after almost 40 years - is usually in rather poor state. Once the work is done it's a nice piece of vintage hifi.
Thanks for the manuals !

I have had this receiver since the early '70's. Bought it new & paid like $350 for it then. Best electronic equipment I have ever owned. Sounds as good now as when it was new. Left channel has gone out recently and looking to get it fixed so I can continue to enjoy it.

thanks for the resource.

re: CR-400

Just been given one of these tuner-amps, which belonged to a late friend and former teacher of 4 decades ago. Appears to be working, but delighted to find these manuals which will help with both use, and minor sevicing that is needed. Came witha pair of Mordaunt-Short speakers, and an H A Leak turntable. looking forward to getting the whole system working together.

re: CR-400

I have inherited the cr-400 receiver , speakers, turntable ,and cassette deck my brother purchased in 1973 he said. It sounds as good today as the day he bought it from Bay/Bloor Radio in Toronto Canada.

Manuals for Yamaha CR 400

I can't describe how happy I am to get these manuals. I have a working unit and this completes it.

Thanks a lot, HiFi Engine.
