Smile Sansui SP-100i

Because of my work duties I'm not active on the forums lately.
So, as my redemption , here’s a speakers which aren’t mention a lot...SP-100i ...released in 1987.

These are variations of existing model:



technical data

to see what Sansui brochure says





According to this catalog, and the technical aspects in it, they should be excellent

internal structure:




I bought them more than a year ago and left them in the basement because the seller said that one tweeter is out,and ....and I desperately needs a bit of free time

Since I am in the process of purchasing new speakers (and I have to wait them for a few weeks), I pulled SP-100i's out of the basement.

OK,let's see that burned tweeter...





Weight of the TW is pretty impressive... 1,5 kg... and is magnetically shielded



As you can see, around the tweeter is a rubber gasket



TW is fastened to a metal casting (which is fixed to the upper plate) inside the box. This means there is no solid contact with the front panel..... very advanced for the 80’s (same with the woofer...no contact with front the panel... secured to the central struts)

Screws are hiding under the rubber ring... you should be careful in its removal.

Excellent Pepa !

Sooooo, your neighbours are suffering - but how do you like them? - do they live up to the spec's and the hype in the brochure?

Never knew, or heard, about anyone having them.

They were a for sale in Japan item only. The speaker stands are nice too. They look very stable.

How do they sound??

Hi Pepa,

I've heard of, but have never heard or even seen those.

They are quite rare, and very well thought of.

Nice job fixing them!

You could make a tidy sum on those if you are willing to ship to Asia. The buyers over there are AFTER that model. Not me, no affiliation.

At the moment speakers are connected to AU-11000A for 48 hours,and the sound keeps getting better and better.
I don't have much free time to listen carefully (and I didn't for a few weeks,except in my car),but they sound very promising,clean,involving sound,all there,stage is great,sometimes I feel too much bass (bass port is on back side and speakers is half a meter from the walls and that could be the reason)
Next week,if any luck and some free time,I'll compare one top monitors with them and then we'll know situation.
All in all, I'm super satisfied

You got lucky on your tweeters. The tweets on mine were fried, I don't know what the previous owner did, but the wires were broken multiple times on the voice coil. I got some thin gauge magnet wire and rewired them. They worked good for several years until one tweet developed distortion around 2000 Hz. I could not get it working properly so I replaced the tweets with some Usher 9950-20's. They sound great again, but I need to get some l-pads for them.
