    Used to sell them back in the day. What sticks in the mind is the wonderful feel of the controls. Nothing else came close.

    I do believe you can get LED lights to replace the incandescent lamps, Direct replacement. Iím not sure where but I know Iíve seen them. And congrats on a killer Yammy!

    I'm not so sure the LED's available will be a direct replacement.
    I had CR1020 and 2020 recievers and the bulbs were hard wired in circuit.

    Still....fabulous piece of kit, should come up spangly with a facia stripdown. Simply soak the knobs and front in CIF foaming bathcleaner....the non bleach type.

    P.s...the variable loudness is a waste of space.

    Thinking back, I recall the bulbs that looked like glass fuses that were stock in a Marantz receiver from back in the day, the LED replacements were made as an exact replacement for those.

    And Iíve done a few clean ups on old gear before and I agree about the foaming bath cleaner! Cuts years of finger grime off the brushed aluminum instantly!
