Integrated Amplifiers - Yamaha CA 410II
Pour yourself an ice-cold forty. . . watts a channel. Although not "feature-rich," this was a nice little amplifier. Again, I preface what I'm about to say with my standard "Judging sound on these old units is far from perfect. So many ways these classics can go 'out of spec' with age." speel, but I find vintage Yamaha to be a bit "thin" sounding. Maybe they are uncolored, and I like the opposite - not sure. I traded this and the matching tuner for a Sansui pair which I liked better.
If you have any more info, photos, video links, stories of your own Yamaha CA 410II, please leave a comment or email me.
