Vintage Sansui Tuner TU-7900

This vintage Sansui tuner model TU-7900 is a beautiful piece of machinery for anyone who still loves radio. First of all, it's visually appealing, with that classic and unusual Sansui "black face" brushed aluminum faceplate and stamped lettering. Next is the big cream-color tuning dial, which is lighted by a series of neon bulbs hidden above it, giving it an errie, yet calming greenish glow. The Sansui TU-7900 AM/FM Stereo Tuner has a big, super-smooth rolling aluminum tuning knob that makes dialing in your favorite station a pleasure. To assist in dialing in the perfect signal, there are two analog needle meters that display signal strength and tuning center, as well as a red LED stereo lock indicator light. In addition to the great looks and useability, the Sansui TU-7900 has some onboard noise filter switches, including FM Muting, an MPX Noise Canceller, and FM Antenna Attenuator. I'm not sure what the Attenuator is supposed to do, but when you flip that cool aluminum switch up, your vintage sansui tuner meterssignal strength instantly doubles. The rear of the unit has a stereo RCA output, as well as adaptor jacks for the short-lived Dolby FM signal. There is also an FM Multipath output, used to adjust and fine-tune your radio antenna for lowest noise. Of course, this Sansui TU-7900 pulls in signals like nobody's business, so most folks will never need this feature. Speaking of obsulete connections, there is a curious single RCA jack labeled "Discriminator Output", which, apparently, is used to connect the tuner to an MPX stereo decoder. Again, most people will never use this feature, but isn't it nice just to know it's there? Finally, a convenient slide-out ferrite bar antenna is wired-in for AM stations. The Sansui TU-7900 is a top-notch tuner for your vintage stereo system. Not to be dedicated solely to the man cave, the Sansui TU-7900 tuner makes a swell standalone piece for the "family room", as it will match nicely with many modern electronics like DVRs, sattelite or cable boxes, DVD players, and surround sound receivers.

sansui tu-70 tube tunerSansui Tuner TU-70

This amazing vintage Sansui TU-70 tube tuner cost over 32,000 yen back in 1964, and is half of Sansui's very first matching tube amp/tuner. It was originally designed to be paired with the legendary Sansui AU-70 integrated amplifier. Released in the last years of the Sansui tube technology heyday, the TU-70 is a perfect marriage of old and new(er), combining warm vacuum tubes with a classic brushed aluminum silver face. Conspicuously plain, the real visual appeal of the Sansui tuner is in the small aqua blue-green tuning eye tube, which fluctuates and fills the small window with light when a good signal is reached. The Sansui tuning eye is truly addictive and fascinating to watch. This Sansui TU-70 tube tuner had only one previous owner since it was purchased back in '64 and was still in perfect working condition. All tubes were working and glowing a healthy orange and the tuner pulled signals wonderfully. Cosmetically, this Sansui TU-70 did have a few scuffs around the edges, and both knobs have some small dings on the rims/edges. Finally, more "character" than damage, the owner inscribed a serial number in the upper right corner of the face in case of theft (remember when people cared about their things enough to do this?). Overall, the Sansui TU-70 looks and performs beautifully, its a historic piece of vintage electronics, and it would make a great addition to anyone's hi-fi stereo system. The original schematic diagram is pasted to the underside of the metal cabinet and all tube sockets are conveniently labeled, so it should be pretty easy to keep this thing running for decades more. The Sansui TU-70 tube tuner measures (minus knobs) 16 inches x 11 3/8 inches x 5 1/2 inches. We had a whole bunch of interest in this amazing survivor, and it finally sold at our original asking price to a friendly gentleman in Belgium (with that switchable 120/240 voltage feature, we were pretty certain this one was going to wind up overseas).

sansui classique T-470 tuner

Vintage Sansui Tuner T-470

This vintage Sansui Classique tuner model T-470 is from the turn of the '80s and still has gorgeous vintage Sansui style. It looks identical to the T-60 model and we have no idea what the difference between the two is. It has a brushed aluminum face with black shell, and a nice heavy tuning knob. It is equipped with LED lighted signal meters with five red signal strength bars, a green dot that lights up when the tuner hits a good channel, and neat little red arrows that tell you to tune to the right or left to get the perfect signal. The tuner measures (minus knobs) 17 inches x 8.25 inches x 5.75 inches. The jury is officially out on 1980s Sansui tuners, but we have found the popularity and interest in the Classique line to be strong. Perhaps its the modern quartz tuners coupled with the vintage old-school look and the powerful Sansui name. In any case, they make a great mid-range vintage Sansui tuner with cool style.
