    Bought an AU-317 a few days ago; my first Sansui amp. After cleaning it up and testing, it is now driving a set of Boston Acoustics A150's.
    First impression listening to Dave Mason Mariposa de Oro LP is that it sounds very good.

    While in the Navy; 1971, my room mate had a 2000x or 5000x driving a set of Pioneer CS-77 or 88 and they sounded great. That seemed to be the favorite combos, at least in my barracks. Similar powered Kenwood and Pioneer receivers were available at the Navy exchange for about the same price, but the Sansui x000x series seemed to be the favorite matched with Pioneer speakers. I have sets of CS-99 and 99a that I will try next.

    Hey Gizzy, I'd be curious what other speakers you tried with your BA-3000. It sounds like you love these the best?

    Currently using a big pair of Australian designed and manufactured Osborn B3 Rhapsody speakers, The dead original Vifa metal dome-tweeters have been replaced with SB Acoustics ring-radiator tweeters and an acoustically measured and adjusted crossover. Very nice all-round speakers, and a great match for the Alpha Sansuis.

    Guess I should update my 2007 entry.

    Still have all the gear, but different configurations. (Except for the Polks)

    AU-X711 and RSL Elans
    AU-G99X and ADS L1290 II (The AU-719 will back after a rebuild)
    S-X1200 and the L100s. Pulling garage duty.

    Same here. I recapped the Dittons myself, and the AU-317 was recapped and fixed up by Hyperion, of this very parish.

    So we pretty much have the same system, and what's also weird is that I live about 10 miles from Ludlow :crazy:

    Pair of PSB Imagine 1, AU919 was totally recapped with Nichicon Upper crust audio electrolytics, polystyrenes where needed. Also tweaked the MC board input capacitance for AT Art9 moving coil, and other table runs a Ortofon OM40 super. Sad to say output transistors are not original, used Motorola replacements. Amp has never sounded better!

    modge & Flapper love that combo - Ditton 33's and the AU-317 - have heard this pairing and am impressed :thumbsup:

  15. You should listen to the Dittons with a Mc MA5100. The imaging - sound stage is unbeatable. Although a little warmer than a Sansui almost valve like.

    DQ-10's - G-9000 with a JBL Synthesis S-400 pre amp - fills up the room quite nicely I might add.

    Currently using recapped/restored AU-717 into KEF 104/2. Speakers have new doughnuts and ferrofluid. Have new caps waiting to go in the KEFs also.
