One thought on “Yamaha CR-1020

  1. The CR-1020 that I have does not have any 110V accessory plugs on the rear panel. I see that they are mentioned in the above article. The CR-1020 I have is unmolested and still works great. Without the accessory plugs on the rear panel…..does that mean that I have possibly one of the earlier models of the 1020?

    Thanks in advance for any information.
