Considered the Holy Grail of Sansui.
A 1966 AU-111 Integrated Amp in Stunning Condition. This is the rarest model of the 5 AU-111 versions.
Recapped, and Sounding Amazing!
This is the best of Sansui and the photos speak for themselves.
Considering guys are asking almost $7000 for SX-1980's and $15000 for G-3300's this is a great deal!
Note: One large knob is a new replacement machined in two pieces from aluminium and plastic, the same as the originals - an unbelievable exact match.
AU-111 Integrated Amplifier
Sansui's master piece in tube technology. The output stage consists of fixed bias 6L6-GC AB1 Push-Pull via Sansui's own SW-50 output transformers with cathode feedback design. As being Sansui's tube gear tradition, this amplifier was designed to strive for the maximum capability of 6L6-GCs with 485V plate voltage yielding 40W + 40W RMS Stereo Power with less than 0.8% THD.
The control amp section consists of the cathode follower first stage followed by three amplification stages to manage sophisticated tone controls, Low/high filters, loudness and presence switches although the tone control circuit can be totally bypassed by the tone defeat switches. The phono equalizer stage adopted the solid-state circuit to improve S/N in the low level input.
The AU-111 was initially introduced in 1965, and was on the market at least until 1971. There were five known revisions, and the first generation ( this one) of the AU-111 on the back ground is the rarest of all with the distinglished aluminium and black plastic control knobs that were built in two parts.
AU-111 started Sansui's black front panel tradition that was continued more than two decades well into 1990's. AU-111 also contributed to establish Sansui's reputation as one of the best audiophile manufacturers in the world.
