[b]Yamaha R-700 Natural Sound Receiver - 1981 - 50x2 (9/10) *SOLD*[/b][i] This unit is so MINT its sick. This was the silver R series from Yamaha. This unit performs 100% and is cosmetically perfect. I tested the unit on Polk RTA12C and SDA2A, and there were zero problems driving either pair of speakers. I also have a vintage Technics SA-500 that I did A/B testing with, and found the Yamaha to be a little brighter than the Technics. It wasn't some big scientific experiment, just an observation. This is a solid 50wpc receiver, no ratings games played when this was manufactured.
The price is higher than normal due to the condition and the fact that it has the original user's manual and all the original packaging. I recently picked up the Yamaha R-700 Service Manual from Rick @ [url]www.stereomanuals.com[/url] and it's brand new. Included: Service Manual, Original User's Manual, Original Packaging and Original Box.
All my gear is cleaned with CAIG De-Oxit and audio connections are treated with CAIG Pro-Gold. Tested for functionality, NO DOA. Packaging is always bulletproof, and double boxed if at all possible.
This unit will be double boxed to preserve the original packaging condition.[/i]
