They're black walnut Massif Audio Isolation platforms
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
Can I ask what the small silver box is setting on top of your G-8000?
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?
I'm pretty sure it's a Grant TubeDAC-11
Correct, Grant Fidelity 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.
I have heard the RA-990 was available with a silver face and thought it might look better along side my G-8000.
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?
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!!
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
Some of my sweet sounding Sansui beauties.
Sansui 1000X, actually refurbished.
Sansui bug bit me and I scratched it.
To protect the surfaces of my speakers, I put always a very thin, transparent film from car tuners on it. Self adhesive and you always could remove it without traces. Looks a bit more elegant.
Wow, the remote control is ultra rare to find. Congrats, nice package you got. Yardsale?
