    It's been years since I posted here. I still got my AU-719 and SR-838, but now coupled with Yamaha NS-200M speakers. Today I hit some sort of a grail for myself, a complete GX-5II rack (my second one) with a full setup including AU and TU-919, LM-330's and some curiosities like Audio Program Timer AT-15L, D-550M tape deck, RA-900 Reverb Amplifier and last but not least, a sweet SE-7 EQ! For being here in Norway i paid a pretty small sum for the whole package, around 500 USD! :)

    Wow great score - the price you paid is superb especially for the AU & TU-919 pairing alone which could easily be double and then some! - :bowdown:

    My initial thought was to flip it, but I really like Sansui and I'll probably keep it.... :beatnik:

    Does anyone here know anything about the LM-330's? They look half-decent and way way different from my typical kabuki Sansui SP-X7700.

    A few days ago I got another small Sansui,model 441.cute little thing,even if those STK's was bad surprise for me,didn't know that they exist on these series (the ''3 digit'').thought they start to show on "newer" units at the end of the 70's.also the first time STK branded with the Sansui logo.after cleaning it works and sounds nice,with good,sensitive tuner like all the small Sansui's.

    My preciousssssss ...

    TOTL QRX 9001, fully restored, including re-cap and the infamous dolby board pinning, as well as re-lamped with LEDs ... should be good for another 30 years now.

    Speaking of McIntosh MC2205's ... I used this one for years to drive the front channels on a multitude of Sui quads. I've since migrated over to tubes for that ...

    I just finished my new AU-710. This thing was disgusting when I got it off of eBay, and was by far the biggest challenge I've faced to get it up to good working condition. I ended up cleaning the faceplate and knobs with Flitz polish. I highly recommend Flitz to clean any oxidation off of the anodized aluminum face and knobs.

    I didn't take pictures of the outside, but this kind of gives you an idea of how dirty it was:

    I have very well known pieces:
    TU 9900 (voice like silk)
    TU 7900 (the first in my life)
    TU 919 (coming soon; I will be able to compare it vs TU 9900 after years)
    AU D9 (delicate)
    AU X911DG (clan, powerful and fast).

    Just acquired this gem. I like the design simplicity of the Model 400. I hope I can find a replacement knob. The metal caps on the knobs apparently have a tendency to fall off. I think it’s the first receiver I’ve had that has a glass tuning dial.
