FS: Sansui B-2103 MOS Vintage power amplifier

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Item: Sansui B-2103 MOS Vintage power amplifier (100v unit)
Location: Sunbury, VIC
Price: $2300 firm
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:

 

I had posted an EOI earlier but since my other amp, Pioneer A-09, hasn't sold yet, I have decided to put this up for sale as well. Both are great amps with their own strengths. Hard to pick one for me, so guess I will let go whichever sells first.

 

The B-2103 MOS is a one of the finest Sansui amps IMO. I have progressed through various Sansui amps, starting from the older black faced integrated amps to later 'alpha' series amps and the B-2103 is pick of the bunch for me. This amp is basically a culmination of Sansui's know-how and all their technologies that they developed over time. Being a later model amp, this has the advantage of having newer more reliable audio-grade capacitors and components. As a result, it doesn't really need a service or 'recap' like older vintage amps do. 

 

Superbly built with plenty of copper in chassis and a huge sealed Tamura power transformer, it weighs 35kgs unpacked. It has a unique sound because of the MOS FET power devices. The sound has a kind of crystal like shine and refinement, delicate yet thunderous when required. Amazing details and smoothness in higher frequencies. Dead silent when no signal input, even with the ears right on to the tweeter. No hum no noise. Only pure transparent music.

 

Just one thing to mention - There is some minor crackling in input selector only when changing inputs. This seems to be a common issue due to age with these amps but it doesn't affect the sound and once an input is selected there is no crackling or noise etc when in operation. Works perfectly otherwise. 

 

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, 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.

      Item: WireWorld Chroma6 HMDI - 5 meters!
       
      Location: Brisbane
       
      Price: $80 $70 including postage  inside Oz. (donation to SNA on sale)  current version about RRP $200

      Item Condition: Good - some minor markings on the gold on one connector. Connectors still fit nice and snug. Cable is in good condition with no kinks or splits.
       
      Reason for selling: Not required.

      Payment Method: Pickup or postage = Paypal Only (as a friend or add 3% for fees)

      Extra Info:  I bought this to see if I could use it between my Singxer S-U6 and my Direct Stream DAC to carry an I2S signal (via LDVS).  Well a guy can dream right? Well it works but the sound is somewhat soft. The general recommendation is that you can't use more than 1-2m for LVDS so it's amazing that it gets any sound 
      So as an actual HDMI A/V cable (which after all what it is!), it's a well made cable with lots of attention to construction / shielding / isolation of conductors. It's a bit expensive compared to generic HDMI cables but you know you're worth it. Plus it's yellow, so yeah.

      The Chroma 6 (all lengths) is a High Speed with Ethernet HDMI® Cable and fully supports Data rate >10.2Gbps- covering 1080p, HD4K, Deep Colour, Audio Return Channel (ARC) and all 3D formats.

      The Chroma™ 6 benefits from the unique WireWorld award winning Symmetricon™ (formely Symmetric Balanced Pair™) proprietary cable design of our high-end cables, which utilize sixteen signal conductors instead of twelve conductors found in conventional HDMI® cables. This unique and original design features parallel conductors with two drain wires per shield pair, which reduces attenuation and provides greater impedance uniformity.
