love the sound, playing it through a pair of Polks and Klipsch Fortes. Big , room filling sound.
Oh my GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My Sansui collection is growing. Top to bottom: SD-7000, RA-500, 5000x, 9090, CA/BA 2000. Philips 212 TT. Everything works great except a background buzz from the 9090, undiagnosed cause within the preamp.
My AU-9900 and TU-9900 are not pictured because I need to do some work to the tuner. I hope I don't find any more deals... I can't help myself. I got rid of my 5050 a couple months ago, as hard as it was to do.
Hi everybody. I don't know if I should be asking this here, but does anyone know what these speakers are? Build year? Quality? Ohms? Watts? I have an opportunity to pick them up, along with a partially functioning DA-T500, for $40, but can't find anything about the speakers online.
It just says Multi Speaker System EX Series on the face of the cab.
Thought I'd ask in a Sansui thread, as someone might have seen them before or have a bit of info on them.
I don't know them, should be at least 1986 or later. Normally I'd say, go for it. Price is very low for the combo.
On the other hand it looks like the Mid-speaker isn't original - selfmade at that place. But may be its only the poor quality of the picture. The single chassis at least should be readily sellable for more than 40 bucks.
Thanks for the response aileenamegan.
You pretty much read my mind. On closer inspection it does look like it's been doctored and/or butchered. That's a shame. I think I'll give them a miss. I'd rather pay a bit more for something in better condition.
...Doctored... we have the same expression in German. Very interesting
Might be the best to look for another, better occasion.
Lots of really nice equipment guys !!!!
Here is my little collection both rescue adoptions
The 350 is from 1969 which makes it my oldest ss
Lovely old fella's. Their sound is always amazing me. Especially with old KEF's or Tannoy's.
Actual pics of two beauties - nice toys.
NFS - you're absolutely right
Hello everybody I am delighted to again have in my possession a Sansui amp/receiver, having had to part with my AU-9500 this winter due to life circonstances. I have just purchased a model 2000! It is not here yet but I can't wait! I feel like a child on christmas eve. lol
Will post pics once I receive it. For now, all I have is those poor ones from the Ebay listing. it does not have the wood casing but I do not mind, I got it at a good price. it will need some TLC(and there is a bulb in the display that needs replacement) but I send all my newly acquired amps to the tech anyway, so this will be no different. It comes with the original box and receipt though, which is pretty cool!
To get a complete, fully package is always a special pleasure. Congrats!
Thank you I'm pretty happy about finding one at that price (the box is a cool bonus!). The 2000x models locally(and online) were all $100 CAD more, so I thought I would give a shot at the plain 2000.
Besides, I like it's aesthetics almost as much as the 2000x and 2000a
Its a good choice. A very fine sounding receiver - over all sources. Not even worser than the successors. You will enjoy it.
Just got this TU-717 off of eBay for a very reasonable price. It's in near mint condition. I took a risk with a new eBay user.
After a year looking for one, I have the CD X701i. The sound is perfect, incredible for a machine almost 30 years old
Greetings all! My first contribution to Exclusively Sansui . These are my SP100 loudspeakers. I bought them recently as I love large paper cone'd woofer exponents. And to be honest missed a pair of Tannoy Chesters I sold several years ago. Not any more. I have owned some serious (and budget) kit over the years and have to say I love these, one of the most detailed speakers I have heard and smooth with it. I thought they were bass-less at first, before realising it is there but the characteristic bass reflex boom or peak isn't there like many are tuned to exhibit these days. My music is predominantly Jazz, which must be the answer as they excel on the genre to my ears.
My new toy..Qrx5500a.Amazing music machine.The sound far exceeds any expectations I had..Now I have it playing a pair of sp x7700 and a pair of s71u..Go easy on me but I like it thru bose 301 series2 also..Sansui makes bose sound good..Oh yeah everything sounds better hooked up to sansui.
