Been looking at these on Yahoo Japan, where they pop up on a pretty rare occasion. The cost of the units, the cost and fear of shipping that distance has kept me safe. Well one popped up on the bay at what I thought was a reasonable cost so I jumped on it! Just received it today. After the seller had packaged it well in its original box, I had him have it double boxed at FedEx. He did a great job, theirs sucked but it came through fine. The amp is just beautiful and sounds very divine. It is extremely well made and build like a tank. A 1997 limited series of 200, all sold by deposit in advance. Not a lot about it on the net but an interesting collaboration between George Kaye chief engineer of Moscode and Sansui. Designed by Sansui and built in the US exclusively for the Japanese market. 6L6GC PP tube power amplifier. 30W + 30W into 4 to 8 ohms. Tubes include 5U4G, 6SL7, 6AN8, and 6L6GC. Just getting it warmed up and enjoying it. It is as pretty as it is musical.
