Third version and a half of the original CA-1000, the CA-2010 was a CA-2000 in Japan.

Upgraded version of the CA-1010 (aka CA-1000III in Japan) : better ALPS potentiometers, a different and DC output stage and more power for an even better 'speakers control. Great drive & finesse, if housed in a somewhat heavy-ish design.

There are no visual differences between the two except for the scripting of the bass/treble controls. Inside, the differences are almost invisible...

DC power amp section with Class A or Class B operation, low distortion Yamaha Dual-Fet differential amplification, parallel p-p circuit and SEPP output.

Low-noise matched FETs in the phono EQ section with differential 1st stage and complementary SEPP output.
1st stage differential FET amp and complementary SEPP output for the NF-type tone control section.
Two 22,000µF caps (2x 18,000µF in the 1010), relay-operated speaker outputs, four-gang volume control, (fairly) low impedance rec- and pre-outputs.

Can't go wrong with a CA-2010.
