In the 70's Hi-Fi magazine did a test of 50 amplifiers using both professional testing equipment and audition tests.
(See link on the bottom)
The list included fancy things like Marantz 1250, Sansui AU-11000, Accuphase E-202, Pioneer SA-9900, Rotel RA-1412, etc
Only 7 amps out of 50 were deemed worthy of "Best Buy" status; Yamaha CA-810 was one of them.

Please note that prices for such great amps in such nice condition do not go down, they only go up. Kind of shows you what quality amps they make in the new millennium.
A price for an amp of this quality made today would be at least $2000.
I've been collecting vintage stereos for a long time, so trades for old Akai, Marantz, Denon, Kenwood, Tannoy, JBL, Luxman, Sherwood, NAD, Sony, Philips receiver, amplifier, CD player, speakers in any condition will be considered.
