Yamaha CX-A5000


I bought this CX-A5000 4 years ago from Magnolia Home Theater  for $2,500.00  It is in 9/10 condition only because it has been used.

 It sounds great both for movies and music with ESS Sabre 9016 DACs for all channels and Yamaha’s proprietary 3D surround sound processing.  Used lightly, on average 2 x per week, once for a Saturday night movie and once during the week for streaming music.  Non-smoking environment.  I would keep this preamp forever but I am moving and have to downsize it and the amps that supported it.  Look at the pictures, it looks brand new.  I am including a 16” high performance power cord as well as the standard power cord, the full featured LED remote, the YPAO room correction microphone and both a hard copy and DVD of the owner’s manual as well as a few other files pertinent to the CX-A5000.

Review from Home Theater HiFi:

“When fed digital content, the Yamaha CX-A5000 sounds much better than my Marantz preamp. The differences between the two are not subtle at all, and the use of the ESS SABRE DAC seems to have really paid off in the design. There is more clarity and transparency in every recording that I listened to.

With films the difference is also clear. From effects to dialogue the Yamaha does a fantastic job. Even the smallest sound cues are there and easy to hear through the audio mix.”
