15yr old Yamaha Receiver

happsSeptember 9, 2008

What do you all think of older (early 1990's) high end Yamaha receivers like the RX-V870 and RX-V1070 for use a a 2 channel stereo? I'm looking for a 2 channel receiver to deliver crisp, clear sound to by B&W bookshelf speakers in my bedroom and I see older higher end Yamaha units for sale on classifieds sites so I'm wondering if it would be a good match for my Denon Cd player and B&W bookshelf speaker?

Those are good receivers. But you would have paid for extra amplifiers and surround processors you wouldn't use.

Sonically, you would be better off buying Yamaha's or someone else's good 2 channel receiver.

I'd look for a Yamaha RX595 or a Denon DRA675.

Thanks for the information. I didn't realize that a lower priced 2 channel receiver from Yamaha would sound better than their $900 fancy multifunction one.

For a bedroom unit wouldn't you be better off buying a new Yamaha or Onkyo receiver that is entry level but still of good quality for your purpose?
