Location: Brisbane 
Price: $950
Item Condition: Good for age
Reason for selling: NLR
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal + 2.6%, EFT
Extra Info:


Rarel opportunity to acquire a 1976 vintage Sansui Turntable that was near or top of line in the golden HiFi era, features Direct Drive platter rotation, Quartz lock (dead accurate), heavy aluminium platter, pitch control and strobe. Has undergone a cable upgrade with Aurealis - Van Damme Silver plated RCA leads.


Finished in piano black gloss, it presents well with some light scuffs to the main body and clear acrylic lid, which is in overall good condition for its age. Operationally it is fine, sometimes it hunts for target speed for a few seconds on start up, but once locked in doesn't move. Nice gentle cueing, which is careful on both vinyl and stylus. Visually - it's quite stunning!


Soft copies of manual (owner's and service) available. 


The below pictures are of the actual unit for sale taken a few months ago, however the headshell shown is not included (previously sold) It comes with the original Sansui silver headshell (Sans cartridge). The heatshrink on the tonearm as photographed has also since been removed.


It's rather large and heavy, so the preference is for it to be re-homed locally following pre-inspection, but I'm open to shipping it, just may take some additional time.


Thanks for looking!

Thanks Rob, my Sansui radar was "pinging" a few minutes ago, this must be why.

      Item: Sansui AU-X501 Integrated Amplifer
      Location: Perth
      Price: Sold
      Item Condition: Good
      Reason for selling: Funding new purchases
      Payment Method: Pickup only - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      I was recommended this model by a number of the incredibly helpful (and wise) Sansui gurus on SNA. I paired it with some usher s520 speakers which can be a bit clinical and are fairly inefficient - fantastic match - but it was equally happy driving some bigger Sony APM 3-ways. I’ve really loved the amp – heaps of power that belies the rated 80 watts and a very detailed, lively sound. It still seems to have some of that Sansui warmth, but more modern and transparent than the 1970s gear. Very nice phono stage with MM/MC switch. As prices of the earlier Sansui amps have gone through the roof in the past few years, this model appears a bit of a sleeper -  the smaller brother of the x701 and x901 which I think sold in Japan with the alpha prefix (Sansui nomenclature is not my strong suite though).
      I haven't even had the lid off this one, because it all seems to work fine. I think it’s basically untouched under the hood. There’s no crackling I can recall with any of the buttons or knobs but given the age it probably could do with a deoxit. I’ve not checked the bias nor any of the capacitors to see if they’re in spec – again probably worth doing at some point for what’s now I guess a vintage amp. The main filter caps are Elna for Audio which should hint at decent quality components.
      I’d conclude the condition is cosmetically pretty good for the age although certainly not mint – the black mirror painted aluminum face on these is hard to photograph as it just reflects everything, however the front is quite clean. I've tried to depict it as honestly as I can. Some of the black paint has worn in a thin line on the top edge that gets touched a lot – this seems like a common thing from other units I’ve seen on the web but I didn’t find it that noticeable and made no attempt to touch it up. The previous owner was kind enough to sand back and respray the lid with a satin black finish before handing  it to me and I think he’s done quite a decent job.
      Finally this unit has some SNA provenance which I quite enjoy – I was browsing the site looking for other examples of the x501 and noticed that @Vortexjah had posted one for sale in 2013. Pretty sure I checked out his listing and the comments when I was considering buying mine. For some reason I was minded to cross-reference the serial number and bugger me if it isn’t the very same one! We worked out that it had gone from @Vortexjah in QLD to a guy in the NT, and then was purchased by a chap on a trip to the top end who brought back to Perth for a few years before he sold it to me about 18 months ago. It looks pretty much the same as it did 7 years ago! Be nice to keep it in the SNA community.

      Sansui AU-α607MR Integrated Amplifier Mel
      Location: Melbourne 3183
      Price: 1250
      Item Condition: very good.  Recently was serviced. 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal +PayPal fee 
      Extra Info:
      907MRX was the only amp awarded in Japan in 1995. 607DR is similar to 907DR.  The sound is the same but bit less power.
      Copper screws say a lot about the amp quality. It is built as a tank.   
      Sansui AU-α607MR was sold in Japan only.  It is need 100V power supply. 
      Comes with a high quality isolated 500W small size step down transformer. \
      No remote control.
      I believe that a buyer will not be disappointed.  The sound is so clear that you can hear a musician breath.  But what is most impress me is a high frequency bell sound. I have never heard in my live so nice bell sound.  I have had a lot of amps including many Sansui amps but only this one can do that.  It is just smoothly slow disappearing in air. Amazing! How Sansui could do that? My Luxman makes bells well too, but I prefer Sansui  bells. Sansui  bells sounding like inside a church whereas Luxman is outside one. 
      Power output: 90 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo)
      Frequency response: 0Hz to 300kHz
      Total harmonic distortion: 0.003%
