I recently had my Sansui QRX-7001 recapped, and I have decided to let this one go. It is conservatively rated as 'Very Good' due to its age, but it is in beautiful condition and working great ... although you will notice that someone has etched something into the back plate. It was Sony's top-of-the-line quadraphonic receiver and includes a Full-Logic SQ decoder, along with a Regular Matrix decoder for Sansui QS recordings and to derive 4-channels from Stereo recordings.
There is a Discrete 4-channel input (that I used to connect the multichannel SACD/DVD player in the photos), and record and playback connections for two and four-channel tape decks. Because it is very rare there isn't much information in the Internet about it, but I would estimate that it outputs 35~40 RMS watts per channel in quadraphonic mode ... plenty of power for most installations.
You should know that this is a large unit (20 1/2 inches Wide X 15 inches Deep X 7 3/8 inches High) that will not fit on standard audio shelf. It is also very heavy (est. 45~50 pounds), so I will not ship it. My fair asking price is based on its condition and rarity. Local pickup and cash payment only. You will see and hear it working, and you can inspect its condition. Thanks for looking
