    Question Help finding a yamaha tuner for my yamaha amp

    I have a Yamaha AX-450 Amp. This is their "Hi-Fi" lineup from what I believe is the early 90's. I got this about 6 months ago myself, and other than having the manual, no clue when this thing was made, or what other components were produced in the same "line."

    With that being said, I am trying to locate a tuner, perhaps even a Yamaha, produced in the same period that would look the same. I believe I found it, being the Yamaha TX-350 however, I can't be certain. Here is a pic of my receiver:



    Here is a picture of the tuner:



    So as you can see, they seem to match, but i have no product catalog that I can see what other members of the current lineup their was for this period.

    Anyone know this? I'm not even saying that the Yamaha was that great of a tuner back then, certainly compared to stuff today, just that it would have looked good matched with my amp.
    Current Setup:
    :( Yamaha AX-450 Amplifier
    :) Yamaha YST-SW216 Sub
    :) Sony DVPNC800H/B CD/DVD Player
    :) Samsung LNT2653H LCD TV
    :) polkaudio R150's

    Hi. Here is a link to what I think you are looking for. There are 2 ways to locate a certain model on this page. But since you want to know what else is available for certain years I would search by product category. That way when you see a certain model in the list you can look at the other models just above or below it. Hope this gets you what you need.
    Of course, if you do not see a certain model listed you can always search by model name.

    Also, here is a partial list of Yamaha products; a good list with a ton of Yamaha produts listed. I linked to this not for ordering anything but just for reference.

    So that first list seems to be what I need. And these products are chronological in the listing? I just wish that someone has compiled a site with model year releases, and which was released to blend with other components. This certainly helps though, thank you very much!

    FMTunerinfo.com will give you an idea of the time frame when the Yamaha tuners were produced; it will also give you a hierarchy of the tuners.

    You can also check the audiogon 'bluebook' for years of release.

    Off hand, I'd say you are on the right track with the TX-350, but that was the lowest of the line in that year. The TX-550 or TX-950 should be much better tuners for not much more money.
