Yamaha CA-610


We hebben deze prachtige Yamaha CA-610 klaar gemaakt voor een liefhebber. De versterker klinkt erg strak en clean. Hij is, zoals je op de foto’s ziet, in perfecte cosmetische staat, wat zeer bijzonder is voor zijn leeftijd!

Tijdens de revisie hebben we alle verouderde onderdelen zoals elco’s en transistoren vervangen, de eindtrap opnieuw afgeregeld en alle potmeters en schakelaars schoongemaakt met hoogwaardige contactspray. Verder hebben we alle printen nagelopen en slechte solderingen hersteld.

Review by The Zed:
“The Yamaha CA-610 is a stereo amplifier manufactured in 1977-1978. It features all the things you would expect from an amp of this era. It features a phono preamplifier, tone controls, and Yamaha’s well known “loudness” control. Interestingly, the loudness control here is a simple on/off switch, when the CR-420 had an adjustable dial. It’s capable at 40 watts per channel, which was and is more than adequate for most people.

This amplifier sounds phenomenal. Yamaha in the 1970’s was known for their “Natural Sound”, and definitely lives up to that name. With the tone controls off, the amplifier sounds ‘flat’. This of course is a matter of taste, but it was the exact sound I was after. The low/mids/highs are perfectly balanced, and detail was brought out of my music that I never heard before. It does not matter what I’m listening to, but it sounds great when put through this amp. Lower volumes don’t have as much of a wow factor, but that loudness control definitely helps in this regard.

I’ve been running this amp in my main setup for about a year now, and some features of this amp have become essential for me. The tone controls are always especially useful for vinyl in my opinion, and the audio muting switch as well. These are things that I didn’t think I’d really need/use, but I now find them indispensable. Another thing I appreciate is the myriad of inputs, and 2 tape outputs.

What else can I say? It’s a piece of equipment, and one that does its job very, very well. I mentioned I wanted VU meters earlier, and while these are called ‘output level’ meters, they satisfy my lust for eye candy.
If you never heard one of these silver-faced “natural sound” receivers/amps, look out for them and when you find one at a decent price don’t hesitate. In this day and age with the internet, people usually know what they have, so good opportunities are rare”.
