  1. Looks like the gold 907MR but in black.
  2. By now I'm well and truly a Sansui fan and would gladly do hard labour for it. 🙂 Even the Sansui AU-717 sounded amazing with the Axis Voicebox S in the study for near field listening.
  3. I have finally move the Sansui au-alpha 907MR into the rack. Tried the Rega RP8 into the Sansui phono input and set it to MC. I was pleased that it's as revealing as the Avid phono but I've to push the volume to 11 o'clock. So I connected the Rega RP8 into the Avid Pellar phono preamp, then into the CD input of the Sansui and now the volume knob at 9 o'clock is loud and clear. 🙂 Play the 'Love Over Gold' album by Dire Straits and it's great. Speakers are Axis LS88.
  4. The XR sound brilliant. To my ears, it's better than the equally brilliant Yamaha CA2000. I listen to the Yamaha first followed by the Sansui. I prefer the Sansui. It's slightly warmer tone with an authoritative bass. That said the Yamaha is really nice too. Diatones are popular in Japan.
  5. Today I had the pleasure of listening to the Sansui AU-alpha 907XR driving a pair of Diatone DS-3000 and a pair of vintage Pioneer s-933 speakers. Really beautiful tone. Now I know that my 907MR will be just as capable.
  6. Thanks for all the interest. This is now sold.
  7. I'll ship if I don't get pickup offers within a day but postage and packaging will be on the buyer.
  8. Yes bargain indeed and I'll even donate $10 to SNA from the sale. 🙂
  9. Price reduced for a quick sale as I'll be going interstate to work. Where can you find a working Sony STR-7035 vintage receiver for $100? So grab a fire sale and I'll even donate $10 to SNA. 🙂
  10. Price reduced for a quick sale as I'll be going interstate to work. Don't want this to sit at home and not being used. So grab a Sansui AU-505 on the cheap. 🙂

  12. Item: Sony STR-7035 vintage receiver Location: Sydney Price: $170 $100 plus shipping if required. Pickup preferred. Item Condition: Reasonable for it's age. In fact it presents very well. Reason for selling: I have move up the Sansui range Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (Paypal fees or via family and friends), COD Only Extra Info: Unit is in good condition. The only flaw is that the tuner doesn't move left past the 104. Seems to be stuck but on channels to the right, it's working. I've used this unit with Yggdrasil as source and also my Denon DP300f via it's phono input. Also tried the Rega RP8 with it via the line input. This Sony plays well and has a great tone. Beautiful lighting too. At this price, I'm just moving it on to a new home. https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/sony/str-7035.shtml Pictures:
