    Great equipment from the 70's

    Receiver is a Yamaha CR-2020
    this retailed for $750 new and now goes for 2-400.

    However it has a short and pops the left speaker's circuit breaker.


    Any ideas what I could look into perhaps something I could fix?

    Otherwise, would it make more sense to get it fixed for up to $200 (or more, who knows what is wrong)
    OR get a used/new ebay receiver -
    - in which case will there be a difference in sound between a similar vintage unit and a digital stereo receiver?


    Here are the speakers
