Got 'um, thanks.
One of the benefits of moderating the database is you learn about some of the more obscure models. The 700CD-R is actual a single piece of a multi component audio system. Sansui used the 700CD-R model name on all the components in the system. There is no model designation difference between the amp, the tuner, the cassette deck, CD player or the speakers. In this case, each will work as a stand alone component and it's a real problem to catalog them in the database. I have to add an identifier to the model name such as 700CD-R (A) for amplifier.
There are other models you that are being sold as stand alone components that are powered by companion components in the audio system. Since they cannot operate as a stand alone component, I'm not going to try to track those separately with maybe the exception of the speakers.
That said, your contributions have expanded the database by hundreds of units many of which were not cataloged before. Keep them coming.
No worries; I just dump numbers here of stuff I see around.
Up to you what you do with it; I understand your choices
Another issue I run into is that many sellers keep on posting their gear on auction sites until it is sold.
I can't check each number whether it is already listed in your database or not; I trust you have a macro or filter for that.
In here again a few models not in your list yet

Thanks guys, got 'um.
Mns80, welcome to AudioKarma Exclusively Sansui forum. Thanks for making your first post a serial number.
The linked item is definitely one of the most obscure items: an AM Stereo portable radio.
Yes, they tried AM stereo broadcast in Japan for a while, many regular component tuners were equipped with it; but the format died off quickly
Shame that there is no serial number shown in the ad.
AU-9900A is a great amp. It's been added to the next upload.
Oilmaster, That's a nice little radio. Judging by the logo, it's from the late 80's early 90's. We had AM stereo here in the US briefly. It never caught on. Apparently there were competing formats and no standard was established. Like Quadraphonic in that way.
Got it, thanks.
On the back it says "MADE IN USA"
Really? Didn't know that....
Got 'um, thanks.
