    Hi. I have a Sansui 3500 tuner /amp. I have searched the web for this model and have not see it listed anywhere. Is it an oddball? Thanks. Jim

    There were a number of components utilizing 3500 in their nomenclature, mainly receivers and speakers, no amps that I know of.

    3500 Receiver 1969 – 1970
    G-3500 Receiver 1978 – 1979
    QRX-3500 Quad Receiver 1973 – 1975
    RZ-3500 Receiver 1990 – 1991
    RZ-3500 II Receiver 1992 – 1993

    Regards,
    TB

    Thanks TB. This one is just a plain 3500 Solid-State AM/FM Stereo Tuner Amplifier.

    You must be referring to the 3500 Receiver from '69 I had mentioned. It's just the terminology, as an AM/FM Stereo Tuner Amplifier can also be referred to as a Receiver.

    I realize that this thread is a couple of years old, but....
    I picked up one of these from a guy a few months ago and it is currently in use as my main receiver. Just thought I would share that...

    It definitely sounds good to my ears (and that is what matters!) I swapped out a Marantz 2245 and put this Sansui in my main stereo. My Sansui 3500 also has the wood case but I have seen a picture of one without the case on it.
    Does anyone have the specs for this model handy?
    Thanks!

    Here is my current setup:
    Dual 1019-->Sansui 3500-->"A" Speakers Custom Fuselier's/ "B" Speakers are DCM CX-17. I use PS1 (playstation) for CDs and Pioneer CT-F8282 for the occasional cassette.

    Hi! Anyone could reupload the manual and brochure of the 3500? There is not much information out there.
