I didnt realize it was you, thought maybe it was another Warren out there :) As Sten said, the 707 was the first solid state Sansui model that the company made. If you've noticed Paul's s/n database at AudioKarma, you can easily determine the manufacture date of your 3000A by checking the third thru fifth digits of the s/n on the label in the back.
Personally, I'm more into the late 70's era receivers- the 9090DB & G Series Line though I still do like the earlier models. The 3000A with its flat blade screwdriver type spkr terminal posts is a bit old fashioned for my taste. Though models as late as my Pioneer SA-7500 integrated (1976) have them too.
You might want to take a look at this site's Service Bulletins and check the one for the 3000A which addresses any trouble spots the model has.
I'd like to use my 3000A more, but I dont know, given its age and somewhat modest power, whether it can adequately handle the big Infinity Renaissance 90 speakers I have, w/o tripping its protective circuitry.
