Thanks, guys. I have been enjoying this unit from time to time when I want an old skool flashback.

I always loved Yamaha equipment. Sold tons of it! The Yamaha rep was a close friend of mine. His brother was a roommate when I lived in Albany for a few years.

This system...keeps changing in configuration and venue.

I gave up the spare bedroom to the boss for her purposes, which wasn't hard at all and had to move the system. I found I was not using the system there and decided to move it out to the garage / shop area because I needed a system out there after the Yamaha CA-2010 had let it's magic smoke out and refused to turn on again.

The CT-610 tuner went to a good home, I fixed the CA-2010 and sold that as well. But here is what it looked like before this recent round of changes:



I scored a Salvation Army $5.99 special, a Onkyo dual well auto/reverse, play and record cassette deck. Then I realized why I had kept all those party mix tapes I had in the two tray boxes!



Some time later I remembered having a Denon DVD 5910 boxed up and in storage in the spare room so I unboxed it and added it to the system. I really like these old Denon DVD/SACD/CD players.





After the CA-2010 gave it up, I decided to unbox the CR-1020 and put it to work in the garage. It's too wide to fit into the little flexy I made so it went on the top shelf and a few things got moved around. I also found I had squirreled away a Yulong Sabre D18 DAC and decided it should be added to the system.





And so the system played away in that configuration for a while until I remembered two more things that had been put away for future use..and old Gateway laptop and the Yulong asynchronous USB adapter. The Yulong DAC has no USB in but the adapter is made specifically as a USB connection upgrade for the DAC and supports up to 24 bit / 192 kHz PCM files.

I updated the music on the old Gateway from my FLAC file repository, incorporated the USB adapter, got out a nice WW optical cable I had in my cable stash (thanks, Ivan!) and found WW USB A to B cable (thanks again, Ivan! ) and hooked it all up.

Wow...I think I found the right combination of old skool and new skool technology that creates a nice synergy.





So while I have other systems to listen to; this one makes my time in the garage and shop that much more enjoyable. And it sounds good!

Thanks, Tony.

I was reading your siggy and the list of your Workshop system components. You ain't doin' too bad for tunes in your shop, either!

Mike, you know you got it bad when your garage system is better than 90% of the public's music players.
