  1. I have the same model speakers, by far the best I have heard for anywhere close to the price. Simply jaw dropping accuracy and scale. No need for subwoofer with these bad boys. GLWTS 👍
  2. Reduced to $1600 hoping for a quick sale... this amp is a steal at this price.
  3. I am open to reasonable offers... All I can say is that if you are looking for a quality amplifier then give this Sansui a listen at least, you may be surprised. If you are concerned about the 100v operations, trust me its a non-issue. Using a quality step-down transformer doesn't affect the performance in any way. In fact, if you use an 'isolated' transformer like I do, it improves performance by isolating the amp from the mains noise. No need for a power conditioner!
  4. Item: Sansui B-2103 MOS Vintage power amplifier (100v unit) Location: Sunbury, VIC Price: $1600 Item Condition: Excellent. All original, fully working. Reason for selling: Need cash for something else. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+ fee), COD Only Extra Info: Note: I had mentioned about some minor crackling in input selector of this amp in my earlier posts. As suggested by some members here, a simple spray of DeOxit has effectively fixed it and there is no crackling anymore. This was the only blemish with this amp and with this fixed, I can say that the amp is in perfect working order now. One of the finest amplifier made by Sansui, culmination of their know-how of all the techniques and materials involved in building a great amplifier. Allegedly, this amp is basically the power amp section of the legendary AU-X1111MOS VINTAGE integrated. This particular model has a cult following in Japan and normally sells for much more there than my asking price. Here is what Mr Tetsuo Nagaoka, known for his horn speaker designs, has to say about this amp (Google translated to English) : " The first generation of MOS was the aluminum can type used in the HMA-9500, and it sounded like MOS, but it was the hardest stone to use. There are still many people who use this stone as their best. The second generation is a mold type that is a little easier to use, but the MOSness is also a bit retreated. The third generation has become even easier to use, but the features of MOS have been diminished and it has become closer to bipolar. This unit uses a 2nd generation MOS and is a rare amplifier. Sansui has enough know-how about this MOS, so the sound of this machine is also very MOS-like. It is really delicate, transparent, well-cut and shines like a finely cut crystal glass. Compared to a 1 million 2 million main amp, the low range pushes out and loses weight. With a high-quality volume, the variable input has 2 pins and 1 cannon, so it can be used without pre. It is basically the same sound as 2102, but it has advanced one step (half step?) And can be taken as a deluxe version of 2102." It appears that this amp has the highly sought after 2nd generation MOS devices which are considered to sound better than 3rd gen and anything that came later. I personally have not compared it to '3rd gen' or any other MOS type, but what I can say from experience is that this amp does have a unique sound (delicate and transparent being the main traits here). Note this is a 100v unit and requires a step-down transformer to work here. This amp was never released outside Japan, so not available in any other voltage. Happy to demo to genuinely interested buyers. Due to its weight (38KGs), will prefer pickup. Having said that, I do have a suitable double boxed packaging but shipping would be at buyer's cost and risk and must be insured. Cheers.

Once an input is selected, there is no issue with the sound. This could probably be an easy fix with a contact cleaner spray, but I haven't done it because this did not really bothered me much as being a power amp you don't change inputs often anyway.

  6. Thanks guys, they are indeed brilliant speakers and sound wonderful. Amazing deep bass and very open transparent sound. That DMD tweeter is a gem. These are not too difficult to drive but they do open up and get going paired with a decently powerful amp. Sound almost full range with my Sansui power amp.
  7. Item: Usher Mini Dancer DMD floorstanders (dark birch finish) Location: Sunbury, VIC Price: $2800 ono Item Condition: Mint, 9/10 (conservatively rated) Reason for selling: Looking for a change Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: The most gorgeous looking speakers I have ever owned, even the wife loves it! And they got the sound to match the looks too. Mint condition with no marks or blemishes on anywhere on the speakers. The cast iron bases have some marks and chips in the corners but nothing too bad. Pick up only as I do not have original packaging and these speakers are too heavy and delicate to pack otherwise. I do have original styrofoam supports and cloth covers which can help to protect them a bit when carrying. Happy for demo and inspections to genuinely interested buyers. Cheers. Photos:
  8. Final price drop to $2100. Honestly, this amp is a steal at this price!

  10. This is still available. Will consider near offers. If you are looking for a power amp in this price range, you should consider this amp as a contender and check it out I am happy to do a no obligation demo.
  11. Been listening to the A-09 for last few days and I have been totally enchanted by its sound again. Perhaps its the balanced connection which I hadn't tried before, or perhaps it is the understated gorgeous looks or perhaps that it sounds just 'right'... whatever it is, I am doubting myself now about selling this gem. I feel like I may end up regretting this sale. Sorry guys, I am withdrawing this from sale for now. I may decide to sell this some other time, but not now... 😃
  12. Aren't we all? We all need some dollaroos... 😄
