Question SANSUI

In the 70`s, stereo receivers were hot and heavy. They even went through a period of time, where there was a power war. I think when the dust settled, 200 watts per channel I believe, was the highest achieved.

During that time, SANSUI enjoyed some success, and a cult status. Though Pioneer, Technics, JVC, and Onkyo all had there feet in the well, SANSUI always seemed to have the most power, for less money.

Does anyone know, Where is SANSUI?

What happened to S.A.E. too, they were very good receivers from the 80's, but they too have disappeared.

I owned a Sansui receiver for about a week back in '76. I traded it in on a Tandberg. The Sansui had a faulty volume control.

My brother came back from 'Nam in '72 with a Sansui setup using a Teac 4010 reel to reel. I loved that thing!

That most have been awesome. And back then, all I wanted was a Tandberg or Studer/Revox reel to reel.!!

Yes kenny, S.A.E. was excellent. I sold there amps and receivers with Infinity speakers at my first audio sales job, Sam Goodys. I wound up getting a S.A.E. receiver for my sisters first real system. She loved it.

I don`t know what happened to them either. Really nice stuff, and good pricing. Dealers were limited though.
