I am interested to know how your female friend acquired that particular model- it had a list price of $1100 back in 1989, so you can expect for that kind of $$, the quality should be Excellent and it would be something that an audiophile-type person would buy.
As you may know, Sansui changed their logo in the latter part of 1987, so being the cd player has the newer logo, right there, you have a way of narrowing down when it was made. Sansui did make integrated amp models like the AU-X911DG and AU-X711 into the early 90's, so those would match up with the cd player. If you were to acquire such an amp, the benefit is that you can use the Balanced connection between the cd player output and amplifier input- you would of course need to buy the balanced cables- they are the 3 pin xlr (also called Cannon) cables- typically found on low impedance microphones. Balanced cables have superior noise-cancelling properties to the regular rca (unbalanced) cables.
