wondering if anyone would happen to know the HxWxL & weight of the cr-450?
18 1/4 6 1/4 13 1/4 20.5lbs.
Found one yesterday in a charity shop for 20 pounds,cleaned it up,connected it up and off i went.Nice sound,well pleased,brings Zeppelin and weather Report albums back to life even though my record player is not up to much(Technics SL-BD22).
Could anyone please direct me to a place where I can learn how to check/replace the fuses on my CR450? All the lights/needles still work but no sound, even with headphones. It worked well last time I turned it on ?4-5 yrs ago and has just been sitting in basement. Any suggestions other than fuses? I’m new to repair (e.g. do I remove screws from back or bottom? ). I loved my old stereo and need to get it going if possible. Thanks so very much for any assistance!
I’d try the http://www.audiokarma.org forums. There is a specific forum for Yamaha and I’m sure someone could help you out there.
I have a working one, mint condition, that I bought in 1976…is anyone interested in purchasing this?
Did you sell the receiver ?
Where is it? Would you be willing to ship? Size and weight? Price?
