I’ve slowly been collecting old Yamaha M-80, M-85, and MX-1000 amps for my dedicated home theater build. The problem is finding these old amps that are in good condition because of their age, and not having to pay ridiculous prices for them because the demand is so high. I know I could send them to Legendary Amps for restoration, but by the time a got done with all of them I’d have a fortune invested, literally. Also with the waiting list time, and turn-around time, I wouldn’t have them ready for a couple of years. So I’ve been tossing around the idea of using new amps instead. But because I’m not able to listen to any of them before hand, I don’t how they would stack up against those fabulous old Yamahas. Is there anybody here who has listened to one of those old Yammies, and something new\/newer? Of course the Emotiva stuff looks real appealing from a price standpoint, but I’m quite leery about the sound quality. I’d like to get as close to the razor sharpness, perfect neutrality, and headroom of the Yammies as possible.
