    I have shown my 2000X before. This morning I purchased a kit to transfer videotape to my computer. Soon I will be showing y'all a rare 1978 Sansui TV ad featuring The Nightbird Alison Steele. Stay tuned!

    I just shipped it out yesterday for a full recap/rebuild. I’ve got all the new stickers as well. The body is in great cond., it should be a good looking unit once I get it back. :) it’s in good hands and I’m excited to get worked on. It’s being done by a fellow member who’s got some prolific skills. I’m beyond excited lol

    I have a 1963 Model 500. The good thing is it looks like it has never been touched.
    Bad news is it looks like it has never been touched. More than a few have told me DO NOT power it up, because of all the oil/paper caps are probably dried out and will mess it up. So for now it is just for looking at. I have to find a place that will service, and replace all those old caps.
    Oh, and I know one tube is missing from it(I was having the tubes tested when I took the picture)

    Hey jobrewer, I'm good. Thanks for asking. The Sansui Eight is a nice one.

    I'm not so much into audio gear these days. Still listening to music and I'm having fun with photography.

    Aloha!

    yea we noticed you have not been in the music thread to often, the gear is one thing, but Music must not go away :)

    My gal is into photography, her degree is actually in art/film/media and political science... I know right LOL where did the PolSci come from... She wanted to have a double major. Any who, 10+ years ago when she was finishing up school, I can remember helping her with some project, one being working with actual 35mm and 8mm film. Had lot of fun learning, I was the mule, you know helping with set up... but I had fun. We shot a few 8mm films and some 35mm but that got expensive real quick. I know she has a strong love for it, she recently mentioned she wanted to get a new camera. I think I'm going to get her something nice for her birthday in a few months, I just know I will be forking out some serious cash... fun stuff. :)

    Her two degrees don't sound so strange. Art/film/media can tell stories of the human condition and Political Science studies governance, political activities and thought. All things that affect the human condition.

    Photography gear has taken a big leap in the past year with Full Sensor, Mirrorless cameras. Currently Sony has a big lead, while Nikon, Canon and others got on the bandwagon late and are playing catch up. A lot of people, including me switched to Sony.

    I "forked out" or rather made a serious investment in the Sony camera and lenses. It's been well worth it. The performance outstrips most pro-level DSLRs. It's a serious tool. I'm having so much fun and I love what it can do. One reason why I'm not messing with audio. I'm geeking out on photography and it's gear.

    The gear selection is vast and can be expensive. Other companies like Zeiss, Tamron, Lokia and others are making quality and or inexpensive lenses for video and stills.
    I started a thread if you're interested.

    Just checked out the thread, I will be picking your mind in a few months. If you don't mind. :)

    She has a few Nikon's D and F series... I cant remember the lines she has but yea, she said the same as you. new camera technology is on the up and up right now. Shes always stayed up on camera tech, I can remember 10 or so years ago I pick up an ELF for her, just for on the go, it was the top of the line at the time and she wanted a small digital camera. It did take good pix, but I can remember her showing me the difference in quality when she did a few side by sides with her "real" cameras. Big diff. I know she is not wanting a standard digital cam.. so I know im in for a good run lol and she has been talking about it for the past 6-7months.. LOL

    My 1970 2000A recapped it using mostly Silmics and did the Conrad Hoffman mods to it. It and my Sherwood S-7200 are lower power receivers in my collection but are probably the two most enjoyable to listen too.

    My cheap Ebay fix and repair unit that has been restored along with the service mods too (was still original). Nice sounding receiver. May top the 2000A and S-7200.

    Still trying to get this 9500 dialed in but I can't stop staring at it. As the gentleman that sold it to me said - "it's a work of art". I completely agree.

    A partially melted 45 adapter that had to removed from one of the resistors? :eek: Great job on bringing that back to life! I had its big brother, the 771, at one time. Very nice sounding receiver.

    Sansui AU-4400. Rated at just 20wpc, it sounds bigger and better than it has any right to.

    The most recent addition to my Sansui family - a Model Seven in great (but dirty) condition. This will join the rest of my collection, which includes:
    AU-555 Integrated Amplifier
    TU-555 Tuner
    221 Receiver
    771 Receiver
    1000x Receiver
    5000x Receiver
    SR-737 Turntable (not working)
    AS-100 Acoustic Suspension Speakers
    AS-200 Acoustic Suspension Speakers
    In case you couldn't tell, I kinda like Sansui stuff! Some before and after photos. I acquired this from the original owner, along with a nice pair of KLH Model 23 speakers. Heck of a nice guy, and he told me he sold the stuff to me ($150 for all) because a bunch of other guys were lowballing him and asking for videos to prove it worked. I took his word for it, and we made a deal right away. The only thing that needs work on the Model 7 is the tuning needle lamp. The KLHs will be recapped and the surrounds will be sealed, but the guy who sells the sealing compound is on vacation until March 20th! Does anybody know if there is another source besides the vintageAR auction site seller?
