    Had the opportunity to check over a few Sansui pieces for a fellow AK member who wanted to sell them, they were so nice I had to add them to my own rack in the shop :)

    Everything runs through the CA3000 feeding the BA2000 and AU9900A into JBL4311's front and HPM100's rear while the AU717 is fed from one of the tape outs driving EV Aristocrats.
    Out of sight next two levels down are my G9000 and SX1980, both just rack queens for now.
    After all lets not be greedy :)

    Your power LED on the AU-9900A is red instead of green, can means three things, or the unit is turned into protection, or the LED is installed backward, or you taked picture in less than 5 seconds after turning it on.

    Bought this Sansui FR-3060 turntable a couple days ago locally. Works and sounds great but the tonearm auto start function doesn't work. Not a huge issue, but I'd like to eventually figure out how to fix it. Right now I have an AT11E cartridge on it, might want to replace it soon, dunno. If anyone has any tips for me about this table, please let me know. Thanks.

    Mine exhibited almost the same behavior. It had been unused for many years. The belt had disintegrated completely, and some of the remnants of it were clogging the mechanism. The real fix was oiling the table. The operation is very smooth and accurate now. Just take off the platter, and you will see two plastic tubes that are for oiling the unit. I used Three-in-One household oil. Maybe 3-4 drops, then run it for a bit.

    Thanks! I'm glad to hear from someone else that has this turntable. What cartridge/stylus are you using in it? I did put a few drops of oil in those tubes last night. But I'm not sure if the tubes are clogged or not. I had the whole thing apart because I had to replace the RCA cable and power cable. I wish I'd gone a step further and dug into the mechanism that controls the tonearm cueing. But I'd just be shooting in the dark anyway :). Thanks for the reply.

    I am running the original Sansui cartridge and stylus. I looked at it under magnification, and it didn’t seem to be worn at all. Sounds great too. Thankfully, I didn’t have any of the issues with RCA cables, etc. Best of luck with your table. Good find! I really like mine. 52CAAC25-B117-4173-96CB-62C30AF9EFD1.jpeg

    A little bit of the old and new playing here in the bedroom system today. G-4500 100$, 20$ Sony CD player , Monitor audio BX1 used 140$. Great sounding you don’t have to spend much to get great sound. Maybe downsize to something like this in the future still looking for a G-8000 one day I’m in love with that receiver for some reason.

    Finally finished my Sansui rack system yesterday, took over ten years to find all the components.Top to bottom PL-71 turntable, TU-717, AU-919, SE-7, SC3110 in a GX-5 rack playing through HPM 100's (although I do have a set of mint Yamaha NS590's inbound in the next couple of weeks). Every piece functions flawlessly after many hours of rework (black flag caps, belts etc etc). Special shout out to RMacy for having a set of those impossible to find 10cm rack handles for the SE-7 which completed the puzzle, thank you sir :)

    Hello John,
    Wonderful pair of amplifier and tuner.
    For the 2sC1400 you may use the KSC1845 and for the 2SA750 you may use the KSA992. The old parts not only are hard to find but also you may get fakes. Please be aware of this.
    Jose

    Sansui 3000A 3-10-18.jpg I picked up this honey at the AK Frankenfest a few weeks ago...needs new screws for the speaker terminals (just bought terminal blocks on eBay, thanks Tinkeroo!) and while the dial string is not broken, it slips...so some attention needed there. Received both customer and service manuals as well.

    LOL! See posts 2216 and 2217

    I had the AS-200's out for a spin. Nice looking speakers, and surprising sound. They paired nicely with the 1000x and FR-3060. Lots of neat Sansui equipment in this thread!

    That is a great looking set. For my money the 1000x was a real design highpoint among the Sansui receivers of that era--something really satisfying about its layout, mix of knobs and switches, etc. Can sound quite good too! Again, great set
