    Hello everyone.

    I decided to show some of my Sansui gear. Camera is shaking a bit but it gives a good idea of their condition, brand new in my opinion.

    Cheers.

    My Sansui 890.

    Picked this up locally last week. After talking with the previous owner for 5 mins, i knew he would at least know about Audiokarma.org. Turns out he is a subscribed member: Fuxtor. Thanks again man!

    Great looking - what are the sound bases you're using?

    Just got it on the mail a couple days ago... After cleaning and servicing, it's already my favorite piece of audio gear!

    It came damaged, but I was able to fix it without much hassle
    I just have to repaint the case from all of the chipped paint.
    One of the best lookers to come out of the 70's IMHO

    I currently have a RA-500 reverb amp on my main system. I am thinking about adding a reverb amp to my secondary system and was curious if anyone has heard the difference between the RA-500 and Sansui's other offerings, RA-700, RA-900 & RA-990?
    Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure it's a Grant TubeDAC-11

    Between RA500 and 700 there is no difference, except for the weight. The RA700 has roughly 1 kg less. Both have 11 transistors and three Diodes. I don't hear any difference. The newer ones I did not hear yet.

    Thanks aileenamegan,
    I have heard the RA-990 was available with a silver face and thought it might look better along side my G-8000.

    Than
    Thanks MistaChen, I am still learning about many of these different systems. If I understand correctly, you feed your digital signal via a wired connection to the DAC input, it converts the digital signal to analog and feeds that to your receiver. Do I have that correct?
    Thanks.

    Correct, i have 2 digital inputs: my cd player via s/pdif and my laptop via usb. I'm a caveman when it comes to digital music so I'm certain I'm not the one to be teaching anyone about it

    I'd forgotten how good a fully restored, full-house AK-spec AU-999 sounds! All of the AK mods applied. Just brilliant!!

    IMG_0228.JPG Hi. I'm new here and found your thread. Here's my sansui 9090. Believe it or not I saved it from the dumpster. The guy I got it from was getting ready to heave it in the dumpster when I saw it. It plays flawless and is my main receiver. I guess sometimes good things do come to those who wait. Just happy to have saved it
