Bought in 1974 my AU2900 has now reached the end of its life. At the time they were regarded as a cheap entry into HIFI and the sound quality, until it recently developed a hideous crackle, was very good. It's a shame that many consumer electronics nowadays seem to have such a short life span, lack simplicity and don't have the timeless clean design. (read more)

I bought the Au7900 new I think in 1975. I searched the market carefully and fell in love with it. I used to be a dj and took the unit out to all kinds of parties. It was a real work horse and never let me down.
I need to find someone in Toronto who fixes these things? (read more)

I am a big fan of music. I have Thiel c 2.2 floorstanders that really match the amp well. I also have a Arcam FMJ 27A with purist interconnects. My Boston acoustic subwoofer is pluged in to the external amp connects. I have it turned down at only 50 hz because bass is not a issue with the 7900. The sub gives it a little warmer feel. The phono amp is great for my Thorens TD 115 MK 2 turntable. If you surround the Sansui AU 7900 with other good components, your music collection will sound... (read more)

Excellent sound quality and very durable. Bought my Sansui AU 7900 in 1975. Has been used to power home stereo systems, dances at school gymnasiums, and more recently, complete home entertainment systems. I've blown through a half dozen pairs of speakers from Pro Linear to Bose 501's and the amp refuses to die. I've had a few minor repairs performed and the repair shops love to work on it. Will probably have it for another 30 years. (read more)

If you have one of these - don't get rid of it! They are fantastic! If you don't have one, go out and buy 1! these amplifiers are over 30 years old and put the new gear to shame...the sound quality, detail, separation is fantastic....you'll have to spend many thousands to come close. (read more)

The Sansui AU 7900 is the best amplifier ever made! Mine still works just fine every single day for almost 30 years now, no problems whatsoever... I also have the tu-5900 tuner which is so sensitive I can receive radio signals from Russia, US and other far away countries(my Sansui lives in Holland). I recommend Sansui high-end equipment to all REAL music freaks. (read more)

I was looking for an amp about a year ago and came across this beauty at a used-audio market.(For 150 euro it was quite a steal anyway). This little monster is great.
It's built and weighs like a tank. At the back there is a large heatsink (kind of rough though)the inputs/outputs and speaker posts facing up. The knobs are great to look and operate (no plastic here) and the overall looks with the black fascia is great. Minor complaint, the power cord is fixed and could be better.... (read more)

After listening to an AU 9900 a friend of mine had as a present from his father-in-law (he was renewing his hi-fi system with something more WAF (wife-acceptance-factor) friendly ),I rediscovered the quality and the sound of these once renowned amplifiers (my first one was an AU101).Pity they don't exist anymore! I tracked down-via Ebay-a couple of Ca-Ba2000 (same age as the 7900 and 9900).They sound superb as they look. Not a scratch from switches or knobs, made of perfectly machined... (read more)

Sansui AU-7900 amp(1977): Sounds great standing still. The build quality of these units is outstanding. They were so over-engineered, it is no wonder that so many are still working today, 25 years after production. This 80 watt per channel I bought this amp in 1977 with tuner TU7900 (ca.1800 Euro new) and works still today, year after year. (one little repair 3 years ago) Works really nice with the British speakers B&W. Although this amp has a multitude of tone controls and filters, which... (read more)

Sansui AU-7900 amp(1978): Sounds great standing still. Just looking at it off can inspire me. Like looking at a Porsche or a Ferrari. The Sansui hi-fi circa 1977-1979 represents one of the high points of Japanese consumer electronics engineering. The build quality of these units is outstanding. They were so over-engineered, it is little wonder that so many are still working today, 24 years after production. This 75 watt per channel amp was the successor to the even more beautiful looking, 54... (read more)
