Receiver - Yamaha CR-840
This 60 WPC Yamaha CR-840 has some condition issues, and unfortunately those manifested themselves as oxidation pits and some rust. Looks like the previous owner had left this in a damp garage for the last decade or so. Still, it's nice-looking and sounds great.
How does it sound? A little warmer than I remember the other Yamaha receivers sounding. Again, with 30-year-old gear, capacitors go out of spec, wiring connections go bad, etc., so sound variance between even the same models isn't rare. Still sounds nice though - a little less "natural" sounding than most other Yamahas, and that's okay with me.
