Great detailed yet warm sound with deep bass. Could look better maybe, the lining of meters peels off in some units.

Powerfull on the bass, very open mid-treble. Nice sound...



re: CR-800

CR-800 and CR-1000 are awesome,
deep bass, tight detailed sound yet warm, not like today's stuff. CR-800 is more relaxed than super tight CR-1000.

Competition like Pioneer and Marantz from the period now more valued but sound flabby and nauseatingly bloated in comparison.

Sony STR6065/6050 sound similar to these Yamahas.

Just look at damping factor, it means something for these old receivers
Yamaha 70
Sony 60
Marantz 45
Pioneer 30 - this one is pathetic guys :)

re: CR-800

I've just picked up one of these in nice condition and love the classy understated look of the Yamaha gear. I'm planning to give it a good service. The service manual on this page will be really useful, but I would love to get hold of a higher resolution version, anyone got one they could upload?

Thankyou. I'll have to figure out how to upload some in return...
