Very nice example...just picked up from orignal owner
Conservatively i rate this at 8 out of 10 cosmetics, probably more like 8.5. Really a nice looker - looks great anywhere - on black stand especially though. Couple little nicks in the wood case that would touch up super. Cant find a scratch or nick on the faceplate. Some scratching on alumimum end caps but only visible from the sides. Check out how shiny the rca connectors are in back. Now go look at the ones in your vintage amp.
This series amp has been getting more well known for being well worth some new caps and upgrades - simple design so cheap to do up, and apparently comes out sounding very good indeed. One rebuilder claims the 999 as his favorite amp period - regardless of cost. Strong language, but hey a guy should listen to a guy whos rebuilt and listened to a few hundred Sansuis. I'm curious to hear this after tunerup - being that I'm a big Sansui fan (currently running hotrodded 719, Ba3000, and just dragged home Ba5000).
This is midway in the model lineup which ended with 999 on top. This has 35 watts, the 999 only 15 more at 50. Probably these numbers are very conservative - I expect a bench test to produce 50 plus after a tuneup.
I dont think was used for many years, but obviously well stored in a clean environment.
Take a look at the photos of inside - I did not clean it up at all - came to me this clean. That aint normal folks.
Will be going to my very good vintage tech for service and possible upgrades - will see. Price here assumes I spend no more than $200, but if I do upgrades will be more, and this price will go up.
I haven't played it but to test, as has some distortion in one channel that a simple Deoxit didnt remedy. Off to the tech.
Price? Am seeing these advertised with wide range of prices - up to $1600 US (yeah good luck). 900 Euros recapped, $600-700 US on Feebay asking. You can send one in to a specialist in the US and have it totally recapped with upgrades for about $400 US or less - so I'm in the zone.
If you want to save a few bucks and do the tuneup/channel tfix yourself - $350 and have at it.
