    I have the Deluxe , have not heard the 8 . So not much help but the deluxe isn't going anywhere soon . Unless stupid money comes my way . I would still probably not part with it for 8 Benjamins. They are getting harder and harder to find and the price just keeps going through the roof. Just my 2 cents.

    Just found out that the tuner lights go out when you switch it to different inputs. Is there any way to Disable this?? I like my tuner lights on all the time

    There is a mod for this or a similar model somewhere here on AK, but it is not simple.

    Thank you for the vote of confidence. I really want one but those lights not being on during phono or aux is a deal breaker

    Would you know if this worked on the 8D?

    The display lites up only on Fm and Am band.

    I do not know if it would work for you. What I was hoping to convey was stuff like this has been done and AK is a great place to get exactly this kind of help.

    I am 50% through my first big Sansui restoration, a solid state 7000, so I have a little experience with a related model, but zero experience with the Eight or Eight Deluxe.

    My recommendation to you is: make a new thread specifically on modding the model you want, refernce the thread I linked above, and ask others for help. I can ink that's your best path to answering "can it be done" and "how it is done".

    Yes, you can mod both the Eight and deluxe to keep on lights at any input. I haven't done the mod, but it is not for the faint of heart. I think Sansui tried to say, - - hey this is not a receiver, but a serious integrated amp that happens to have a build in tuner for which we will provide light only when you need it ;-)

    They are both difficult to work on, but the Deluxe is much easier to adjust. It also sounds a tad more refined imo, but the difference is no more than what can quickly be offset by individual condition of the amp.

    Sansui Eight Deluxe is the Engineer's receiver!
