I don't have any opportunity to hear newer tube amps, so I can not determine the differences; however, Sansui reproduced AU-111 with the exact same specs in 2000. The only reason they could have done this is that they still had the original transformer supplier. The price of this new AU-111 was somewhere $4,000.00. This story tells us that AU-111 is still very best. One advice for you, though, is that you have to go through all parts to make sure everything is working correctly. This probably involves replacing all coupling caps. As of today, I'm restoring two AU-111's. When I finish the restorations, I will talk about this one this site.
: Can somebody please describe how a Sansui au-111 integrated tube amp sounds compare to the new tube technologies. I might be able to get my hands on one.
: Thank you
