Yamaha R-2000 High Power Vintage Receiver
Yamaha coined its "Natural Sound" branding in the 1970s, a monicker that has survived today. The reason for this is the smooth, clean, and effortless way Yamaha components deliver music. Yamaha amps have long had excellent drive, capable of commanding and controlling many types of challenging speakers, but doing so in a way that reduces fatigue and makes for lengthy musical enjoyment.
The R-2000 receiver was introduced in 1981 and features a massive 150 watts per channel, an excellent and highly configurable phono section, digital tuner and beautiful silver-faced look. The R-2000 was Yamaha's Monster Receiver of the era. The modern “totally 80s” styling separates the R series from the CR that preceded it. The extra power means the amp can power very challenging speakers with authority and retain that signature Natural Sound.
This unit has been tested and cleaned by our in-house tech with a clean bill of health. All lights replaced. It sounds excellent. The casework is near perfect, and all the original knobs are there. You will not be disappointed. If you wanted big 80's receiver power, with a ton of features, in a very unique package, this R-2000 is IT!
