*I listed a few feedbacks for your convenience below
- THIS YAMAHA AMPLIFIER WAS SENT TO ME BY A CUSTOMER FOR REPAIR AND RESALE. THE ORIGINAL SPEAKER TERMINALS HAD TO BE REPLACED AS THE PLASTIC HAD BECOME EXTREMELY BRITTLE WITH AGE AND HEAT, WHICH IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS TYPE OF SPEAKER TERMINAL. IT'S A SHAME, AS ORIGINAL SPEAKER TERMINALS DO NOT REFLECT THE HIGH QUALITY OF THE REST OF THE AMPLIFIER. IT'S A HEAVY AMP AND THE POWER SUPPLY USES TWIN POWER TRANSFORMERS.
- THE REPAIR: ALL OLD SPEAKER TERMINALS, SPEAKER WIRING, AND SPEAKER RELAY BOARDS WERE REMOVED. A 3" X 8" BACKING PLATE OF 3/16" THICK ABS PLASTIC WAS CUT AND FIT TO REAR PANEL OF AMP. 6 PAIRS OF 5-WAY BINDING POSTS WERE INSTALLED ON THE PLATE. ALL SOLDERING WAS SILVER SOLDER.
- ORIGINAL TERMINALS COULD ONLY ACCEPT BARE WIRE ENDS. THE 5-WAY POSTS CAN ACCEPT ALL NORMAL SPEAKER WIRING CONNECTORS: BARE WIRE, SPADES, BANANA, or PINS. THIS INSTALLATION IS TREMENDOUSLY STRONGER THAN THE STOCK SET-UP.
- ELECTRONICALLY, THE AMP HAS BEEN RESTORED TO LIKE NEW CONDITION. ANY COMPONENTS FOUND TO BE OUT OF SPEC ARE REPLACED. ALL PARTS THAT ARE REPLACED ARE ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER'S HIGH END COMPONENTS. These amps have a unique sound, and to retain that you can only use ORIGINAL equipment. THE INDICATOR LIGHTS HAVE BEEN REPLACED WITH LEDS.
- COMPLETELY CLEANED AND SERVICED. ATTENUATORS AND SWITCHES CLEANED. DISTORTION LEVELS MEASURED IN SPEC. AMP EXCEEDS 170 WATTS (8 OHMS) IN EACH CHANNEL, WITHOUT CLIPPING.
- AMPLIFIER OPERATES FLAWLESSLY. METERS PROPERLY LIGHT UP. I HAVE RUN THE AMP HARD. AMP RUNS WARM, AS NORMAL, WITH EXCELLENT SOUND. ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS. AMPLIFIER PROVIDES SPEAKER SWITCHING FOR 3 SEPARATE PAIRS OF SPEAKERS. AN UNUSUAL OPTION NOT FOUND ON MOST AMPS.
- COSMETICS: THE AMP HAS BEEN RESTORED BACK TO EXCELLENT, LIKE NEW CONDITION. SMOKED GLASS METER COVER HAS NO SCRATCHES. MINT CONDITION. OVERALL CONDITION OF AMP IS EXCELLENT.
- IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BUILD A 5:1 OR 7:1 SYSTEM, THIS AMP IS A MUST AND CAN BE USED AS EITHER FRONT CHANNEL, REAR CHANNEL, CENTER CHANNEL OR SIDE CHANNEL. I HAVE WORKED ON AMPS THAT COST $6,000-$10,000, AND THEY HAVE NOTHING ON THIS AMP. THESE M-65's ARE TIMELESS AMPS. THEIR CRYSTAL CLEAR HIGHS AND WALL-MOVING LOW FREQUENCY ARE UNMATCHED.
- SALE IS FINAL. AMP SOLD AS IS AND THERE IS NO WARRANTY IMPLIED. NO RETURNS. WINNING BIDDER SHOULD CONTACT ME WITHIN 24 HOURS OF AUCTION/SALE END AND PROVIDE TIME LINE FOR PAYMENT. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO OFFER ITEM TO NEXT HIGHER OFFER, SHOULD BUYER NOT CONTACT ME IN THE STATED 24 HOUR PERIOD. PAYMENT DUE WITHIN 2 DAYS OF INVOICE.

Hi Skip, Got a chance to plug up the M-85 last night. Awesome job to say the least! Looks beautiful and sounds outstanding. The work you’ve done on it makes a tremendous difference, both on the eyes and the ears. Again, from you, a great job that is second to none...period. Your hard work is greatly appreciated!! Keepin the M-Series Yamaha Amps alive and well...Thanks -
Hi Skip, The M-80 showed up. After hooking it up, put some CDs on to get a quick handle on the performance. This amp is incredible sounding. I was not prepared for just how good it is. I've been using a Nakamichi PA-7 I was borrowing from a friend, so I have a pretty good idea of the Signatrure III's can do. This M-80 is as good, or better, than the PA-7. The bass is ever so slightly deeper (and tighter) than the PA-7. The midrange is where I hear the largest delta between the M-80 and the PA-7. The M-80 has a clarity that i've not heard before with the Signature IIIs, and betters the PA-7 in this regard. I love how the unit looks new again.Thanks again! Another satisfied customer,
Dear zcar280z, The amp is wonderful. I do have a question. I was using a Denon $2500 receiver as an amp only and when it replaced it with this amp the sound quality clearly improved immensely. The Denon specs are great. I use a Sony TA-E80es preamp & big vintage JBLs. My question is: What is it about the amp that makes it sound so fantastic? - mit69
