I had one of these, now long gone and in some, but not all respects, I miss it very much.
I'm just adding my views partly based on memory, but also partly based on nostalgia for a time long gone.
This is the age of youngsters regarding MP3 (and other compressed formats) as "Hi-Fidelity", the iPod now rules supreme(???!!!), and streaming internet radio at 192kbps and downloads of poorly ripped and compressed music via a soundcard in a PC now dominates.
I loved the look, the silver finish, the... (read more)

Let me tell you if you can find one working grab it you will love it forever to. If it doesnt work, you can get it fixed. They make junk now and with the g-series sansui you great awesome power and the best looking receivers made. I see my friends go through all there stereo stuff and I just turn mine on and crank roger waters or mattalica or even country and what a sound. I just need bigger badder speakers. I will never hear it turned up. I shut down 400 or 500 watt klipsch and vegas. Well... (read more)

I have had my Sansui G-9700 since I was stationed in Germany in the early 80's. Currently it is in my attic. I refuse to depart with it and one day I will pull it out of storage and bring it back to its glory days. It surprised me on the internet that they state it was purchased originally for $1100. I am sure I did not pay more than 5 or 6 hundred (read more)

Holy Moley, these people are stupid.
The Sansui G series- G9700 is a 200W/Channel receiver whether it has 75 W transistors in it or 5000000 Watt transistors. That means nothing. It is also only TWO channels, not four. If it had three pairs of speaker jacks would it be six channel?, the stupidity. 600 Watts is the power consumption. 200 Watts per channel into 8 ohms at 0.01% THD is the output for christ's sake.

I bought my Sansui G series- G9700 at a flea market for $50, and I am loving it for years. It will blow up any second-rate speaker you put on it, only when I went to 4 JBL's did I elimate the dead speaker wall of shame in my house! This baby will rock and roll, it can produce live concert volume cranked up, you better have the speakers tied down, it can produce bass note peaks that can blow the speaker clean off the stand! Buy one if you can still find them, you will not be let down, it... (read more)

a lot of my friends have newer (junk)
they think that the new reciever they bought for 250 dollars really puts out the power.
until they come over to my place and my old recievers (used as power amps ) hooked up to a 7.1 channel d digital and dts (and dvd audio )
preamp-decoder sounds. (read more)

I paid $10.00 for my sansui, I would have paid much more and don't think the previous owner knew what they had. It is in great condition in all respects and I would like to know true value of my g-9700 if any one knows would thank you for the information (read more)

I bought my Sansui G9700 receiver off E-bay about a year ago. 2 hundred bucks, I recall. It had a blown left channel that my GENIUS repairman quickly diagnosed and repaired, and it has worked beautifully since. It is out in my garage, and runs four Sansui SP-3500 speakers wonderfully. I wizz off a lot of neighbors sometimes, so I gotta cool it when I'm playing CD's of Zep and Hendrix. I do wish it had pre-out and main-in jacks on it, but Sansui chose to leave this feature off on this last... (read more)

I originally purchased my Sansui G Series G9700 receiver in June of 1980 for considerable $$$. Like a fine wine, old '97 gets better (and more valuable) with age. Unfortunaetly my '97 has suffered the same fate as mentioned by my fellow owners listed here-a blown Transistor of the 75 watt very low destortion variety-which is proving difficult to find. I have kept this receiver in as new condition cosmetically and never made the mistake of throwing away the original box/packing. If anybody... (read more)

I was lucky enough to get this Sansui G Series G9700 receiver from my brother who only paid 35 dollars for it at a thrift store. I gave him a pair of klh speakers for it. It is in perfect condition and i won't part with it for nothing. I also have a phase linear 400. It is a 400 watt per channel pre amp. With the sansui g-9700 i don't need the pre amp hooked up.

The Sansui G-9700 Pure Power DC stereo Reciever.
Each of the four channels have 4 75 watt power transistors- this means 300 watts per channel with a 600 watt per channel peak using 2 speakers (half that with 4 speakers you still have a 300 watt per channel peak). It has a .01% THD rating (total harmonic distortion) and fine tuned and precice digital and mechanical frequency displays with LED power bars. Even tho it is old, it is a wonderous thing to have. You can always hook it up to a... (read more)
