Another cool cat from the 70's. Yamaha's 1977 mid range CA-610 from its 'Natural Sound' series is a 40 WPC amplifier that sounds a lot bigger than the 40 watts it's supposed to produce and better than you may expect. On top of that it has some great looks with its brushed aluminum and wood grain veneer. A well rounded amplifier, with all the functionality most will need.

Although the AU-101 was the 'budget' amplifier for Sansui back in 1973, it is not to be underrated. Power output is at a conservative 1970's 15 watts per channel. Its pedigree comes from the popular Sansui AU-555A which is quite a respectable amplifier itself.
