: Sansui made the A-80, A-60, and A-40 in the very beginning of the 1980's, the A-80 being the highest wattage model of the three. The company also made matching tuners (T-80, 60...)for the amps.

: I believe these A integrated amp models were the first models in the Sansui all-in-one combo rack models that were built in the 80's. The corresponding receivers would be the R-70/R-50/R-30. In fact, they might have been introduced in '79. Sansui made many generations afterwards, such as the A-9, A-7, and A-5 in 1981 (followed by successive 9, 7, and 5 models). These combo rack models are ok, but the main models (which were more ruggedly built, and more expensive, would be the AU-D11, AU-D9 (for example) in 1981, and to a lesser degree, the AU-D7 & AU-D5)

: The AU-2200 actually dates back to the mid 70's ('74/'75) and is the smallest model in the AU-9900, 7700, 6600, 5500, 2200 Line). Nonetheless, Sansui at that time built amps with high quality like proverbial tanks.

: The A-80/60/40 models, being made at the beginning time of the combo rack models, seem to be a bit better made than later A models in the 80's, which were rather on the "cheap, black, plasticky" side.

: B/F

: Wow, all this good information,
Thanks guys
