Default The Death of An Old Soldier

After years and years of faithful service, two recaps and numerous applications of solder, the old Yamaha CR-620 has succumbed.

It let go of it's magic smoke in a sparkly farewell this morning and will be handed over to the loving hands of a local tech who will make use of its still-functioning internal organs to revive another ailing silver faced Yamaha.

Farewell my old friend. Thank you for the music...

That is a very good question, Randy.

I am not sure.

May it rest in peace. Perhaps a nice vintage piece to take its place.

That is exactly what I am leaning towards, Tony.

Terrific piece. Have a CR-800 and keep a friend happy with a CR-820 I cleaned up for his use many years ago. The CR-620 is almost all discrete devices, so is generally easily repaired. The CA, CT & CR pieces from Yamaha are some of the nicest of the '70s vintage gear.

I have a soft spot, probably in my cranium, for the old Yamaha silver faced gear. It has a distinctive sound that appeals to me.

Well, all is right with the shop audio world once again...



I re-purposed my CR-1020, dug out the Yulong DAC, paired them with my Onkyo tape deck and Denon DVD 5900. It's all good.
