    I just picked up a Sansui CR-M5 but I can't seem to find much on it. I got it for $40 bucks with a Sansui P-D10 record player they both look brand new and work great. Do u think it's worth keeping or just getting something different.

    I love my AU-555, just got a new cabinet to put it in. Also recently got the TU-555, now I really see how off my 555 is being gray. Paired with early ADS 400 speakers sounds great. (Audiotechnica turntable is in the cabinet behind the door, playing some pixies vinyl)

    I recently moved things around and now have the AU-555A and TU-9500 as a bedroom system with AR-5's (hidden in custom cabinets), They sound very nice together.

    Currently using NHT 2.5.

    Thinking about B&W 703. I don't know if it's a good speaker for Sansui but I like it's sound...

    Newly acquired 7000 to start a new 'hybrid vintage' system. This is quite a rush getting all gooseflesh over a piece of equipment that's about 45 yrs old!
    I plan on opening it this weekend to dust out & observe for any potential issues.
    I appear to be the second owner, and I have original laminated feature card, service & operation manuals, original warranty card, & schematic (which was in an envelope attached to the bottom from the factory?) along with a baggie containing all the original pushbutton labels which have come off over time.
    I have only observed some of the lights seem to be out, but it appears to work, having been tuned to a station playing Van Halen when I picked it up at an estate sale.
    I think I'd like to go with original style bulbs as opposed to LED, but I don't think I've seen one that was totally redone in LED.....
    Wood seems to be damn near perfect, so I'm stoked about that!
    Any tips for this humble beginner would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
    D.W.

    My first Sansui, an 881. I found it on the Facebook Marketplace. I have it apart to clean it (even though it is almost pristine) and to see why the dial lights are out. I hooked it up to a set of Nova 7s that I got yesterday and what a great match! It blew my hair back! The amp works pretty well but the AUX input cuts out a bit on one channel but the tape inputs and tuner work great. When I get it back together I will post another pic.

    Finally got a Sansui :banana:AU-719 without a scratch on it (except the rack handles)!

    I think this time apart from a new power cord as the old one wasn´t even good enough for a table lamp, I am NOT (yet...) going to do a recap. It sounds very good after I re-calibrated the bias and DC offset :)

    Yay, I can finally contribute.

    The amp just came home from being serviced to be brought back up to spec. Sound is very deep, black and authoritative!

    Howdy, new guy to audio but man, am I really enjoying it. My set up is all Sansui. Sounds great to me but I am very new to this. Still looking for speakers but these work great now. Receiver is QR-6500, Turntable is 2050C, and the speakers are SP-2000.

    Hello congrats on your Sansui 7000. I have one also that I received for free as my neighbor was going to throw it out. I had it serviced by a tech locally and it worked for 6 glorious months before the left channel went. A great sounding reciever. I am going to have a full restoration done on it next year or so.

    Hello Sansui fans.
    Had an interesting
    Congrats!! Your story would have been my exact reaction. It's BIG, heavy and...BIG so it HAS to be good. Sold!
    Lol. I had an interesting moment with my wife just now. I showed her the pic of a Marantz 2600 on top of a G-33000 and she said "Do you need something that big". Notice she didn't say "No or preempt my thoughts of getting one and shooting it down. Hmmm...have to tread softly here. She didn't say no.... hopefully I can be as lucky as you!
    Enjoy the system man!

    AU-517. Really like this little bugger. For their value, very hard to be beaten.
