Sansui 9090db Receiver - Vintage greats

Newly arrived is this beautiful Sansui 9090. DB noise reduction circuitry is one of the many nice features that this late 70's receiver offers. At 135watts per channel it drives low impedance vintge speakers quite well. We tested the unit driving 6ohms and found the response to be quite good. 
This vintage aamplifier is stunning in appearence. Beautiful walnut sleeve and polished aluminum face. This is a Sansui flagship. A beast at 55lbs.

Panasonic RS755S - Analog Dream Machines

If you still use the medium here is a versatile well built Reel to Reel for your collection. An early 1960's unit from the company that made their start manufacturing bicycles. Of course their big move in audio came when they launched into a higher fidelity line of Technics products. Most notably their Reel to Reel decks which were at the forefront of the medium for much of the early 80's. 

We gave this unit the full diagnostics and brought it back to original operating condition. At 65lbs I cant imagine the old boys lugging this to band practice but I'm sure thousands did!
