I've owned a lot of fine tuners over the years, mostly McIntosh. Every time I would see you guys posting your BA / CA / TU stacks, I'm like - I gotta get me some of that shit. A few years back, I found a AU-217 / TU-217 / SC3110 in a GX-5 rack parked outside the electronics bin at the dump - so I rescued it. Turned out, the only thing necessary was belts for the tape deck. I've been using the integrated and tuner in my garage ever since and for entry level gear, have been overly impressed. So, I've had the Sansui bug for a bit now. I came across this TU-9900 in Barter Town a bit ago for a very reasonable price ($350 plus shipping). I didn't even dicker. Sold. It arrived safely due to excellent packing, I powered it up, and it sounded excellent right out of the gate. As it warmed up, it could no longer lock a Stereo signal. However, the selectivity and sensitivity were already better than my serviced and aligned Kenwood KT-8300. So, off to the Audio Doctor it went. Hey, he's just right down the road from me! I got it back today. Cornell, like always, was very fair and it needed just one hour of service. Nice! I picked it up today. Cornell was quite complementary about its performance so I was anxious to hear it in my setup. Now it's back home, plugged in, and I'm listening to it as I type. The TU-9900 is easily one of the finest tuners I've yet owned. I especially like the Noise Canceller - a very handy feature for listning to KBAQ. For now, it's displaced my KT-8300 in my office. Soon, it will go downstairs to replace my MR75 (also recently serviced and aligned). Let me listen to it for a bit before I opine about it's SQ. Initial impressions are quite favorable. As for fit, finish, and feel, it trumps both the Kenny and Mc easily. Now for some low quality grainy iPhone 5 pics . . .
