The Yamaha CX-A5200 is have a nice haptics and good workmanship quality.
The inner construction is kept simple but have good structure.
The new remote control is much better than the old one. All in one a good package for 2500€ price range.
We found a huge shielded toroidal transformer from Bando in the front center area and two linear power supplys for the audio parts.
Also a big switching power supply for all other parts.
In summary we have many points for our modification.
The serial CX-A5200 sound right good, like the CX-A5100. A little bit harsh in the upper highs and a bit thin in the upper bass/lower mids. The three-dimensionality and the timing a still good. But the Yamaha CX-A5200 sounds not as natural like a Onkyo PR-RZ-5100.
Time to find out what we could do...
