    Hey, I just got this old Yamaha R-90 stereo receiver that apparently was made in 1984 from a relative. My mom tells me it was "top of the line" back in the day, but its obvious that doesnt mean much. I dont have a set of speakers to test this old thing out, but does anyone know anything about it? Would it be worth getting a nice set of speakers for a 2.0 music setup?

    Maybe a long shot, but thanks for any help you can offer...

    I can’t find anything about that particular model, but Yamaha’s 70s and 80s receivers were always highly-regarded. I’d go for it.

    Keep an eye on eBay – you can probably find one on auction eventually and get some info on it.
