    Hi all,

    Just wondering if someone has an AU-217? I need a photo of the undercarriage if possible please?

    Thanks John.

    Wondering where I can get a set of original feet from.

    Just bought this set for the garage but some nuckle head has changed the feet only on the amp not the tuner.

    Another strange thing, the TU-217 seems to have no dial lamps from when Sansui designed this model??

    Hard plastic feet, no insert soft pads and same as used on the AU-D5/7 and a bunch of other pieces. I can measure my AU-D5 feet for you if you like if that helps.

    edit: I see you have the tuner- same feet?

    They are hard and can skid on smooth surfaces. Maybe that's why the 'knuckle head' changed them...

    Bought these for my AU 317 and AU 217. Did not come with screws, had to get #4 sheet metal screws from Home Depot.

    No affiliation to the seller, but these fit and looks great. Talking about knuckle heads, mine decided to completely remove them to solve the sliding issue I guess ;)

    Correct, no dial lights on the TU-217.

    I just wanted to make sure the feet are the same on both the AU/TU. I might just leave it as is. I understand the change to stop the AU from sliding etc.

    Thanks to all for your responses, really appreciate it.
