Actually it was the only Sansui unit in a part of her brothers system from the early 90s era.. the date on the serial number makes out to be January of 1990. I just cant beleive the quality Im seeing in this unit.. It appears to be the full height of this line of units from Sansui, about 4 inches tall, weighs about 20 or so pounds, its a beast! The drawer on it opens and closes with speed Ive never seen on a player. I have a chance at aquiring a rz-9500av as well. looked like it was a match for it,. although, i wont be using it in conjunction.. Wow, 1100 bux for a cdplayer is quite a purchase tho. < i dont think she thought it was worth THAT much > course, shes a good friend, and got my pioneer cdplayer, a g-4700 and a pair of speakers in return, and she knows in nuts about sansui. Plus, Ive cleaned her place a few times now in laughable attempts to suck up ;) haha. Im enjoying it tho. Would love to get another one to match it, or at least the 701. :) Dissappoints its the new logo tho, Although looking gorgeous < its embossed, not printed-screened> the enitre fleet of my sansui gear is early logo'd.. Thanks for the info tho BF :)
: 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.
