The Vintage Sansui Receiver

The Sansui name is perhaps the most respected, sought-after, and truly beloved of the great Hi-Fi manufacturers of the 1960's and 1970's. The vintage Sansui receiver is truly an icon of audio history. Below are a few vintage Sansui receivers we have found or inherited over the past few years, so scroll down to read about the Sansui 5050, the Sansui 5500, the Sansui 7070, and check out some of the amazing vintage Sansui receivers you can buy on the internet! For true Sansui lovers, we also have a Vintage Sansui Amplifiers page and a Vintage Sansui Tuners page for your viewing pleasure.

Sansui 5050 Receiver

vintage sansui receiver 5050

This vintage Sansui Receiver model 5050 will make a perfect addition any audiophile's hi-fi setup and the man cave. My grandparents were the original purchasers of this Sansui receiver and it was used only about two weeks before it was replaced with a Sansui QR-6500 4-channel quadraphonic receiver, which can be seen right here! The Sansui 5050 receiver is a classic piece of vintage audio that had since been in storage for the last 40 years or so and was still in perfect working condition when we found it. It has a classic brushed aluminum face and a gorgeous walnut veneer cabinet. The back of the Sansui 5050 has input for Dolby Noise Reduction / 4-channel adaptor and has separate inputs for tape, turntable, and auxiliary.  The entire unit measures 18 3/16 inches x 11 3/4 inches x 6 1/4 inches. There was only one cosmetic flaw on the machine: the lighted signal and tuning meters had black areas on the backgrounds (looking a bit like a damaged LCD screen). Otherwise, it was in very clean condition with no other scratches or scuffs. This vintage Sansui 5050 is a bit of a rarity and was a fast seller. Scroll down for more from our collection and to see some awesome vintage Sansui receivers for sale!

Sansui 5500 Receiver

vintage sansui receiver 5500

A loud, heavy and versatile mid 1970s audiophile unit, the vintage Sansui receiver model 5500 provides nice, warm tones for your old vinyl, and in high style. The Sansui 5500 receiver also makes an attractive and aurally pleasing boost for your "modern" home theater setup. The Sansui 5500 has classic vintage Sansui style with a beautiful aquamarine lighted tuner, brushed aluminum face and real walnut veneer cabinet. A multitude of input options include four separate stereo speaker inputs, two dedicated phono turntable inputs, three tape inputs and a dedicated auxiliary input, as well as connections for 4-channel quadraphonic adaptor, noise reduction adaptor, crossover unit, etc. There are enough chunky black buttons and cold heavy knobs to keep you fiddling for fun. This behemoth weighs in at almost 43 pounds and delivers sounds that are just as heavy. The unit measures 20.25 inches x 14 inches x 4.5 inches and is very clean. This particular model had a blown fuse bulb behind the line meter (needle still worked, it just wasn’t back-lit). Otherwise, everything was tested and functioning smoothly and properly. As far as cosmetic flaws, there was some fading and rough spots on the thin silver plastic border around the lighted faceplate, a few very minor blemishes on the wood and some chipping underneath, which cannot be seen in upright position. We have sold this unit, but check below for some truly stunning vintage Sansui receivers that we have found available for purchase, and scroll down for more vintage Sansui Receivers from our personal collection!

Sansui 7070 Receiver

vintage sansui receiver 7070

This vintage Sansui Receiver model 7070 was born in 1976 and weighs in at around 50 pounds of pure loudness. I think it is rated at around 60 watts per channel, but I am dead certain it will blow eardrums. It has your favorite outdated inputs, like for your four-channel quadraphonic adapter, standalone Dolby NR filter (I had one of those once!), and the old-school DIN connector for reel-to-reel tape decks. There's even a Dolby FM selection for the unbelievably short-lived concept of broadcasting FM signals in Dolby NR. Of course, there are plenty of useful standard features, too, including two tape inputs (not including the DIN), an aux input, and two separate turntable / phono inputs, which is always fun. This Sansui 7070 receiver still sounds and works great. All functions have been tested and are working. It's appearance is another story. Unfortunately, the Sansui 7070 was roughed up pretty badly during its 25 years of storage in the spare room. As seen in the photos below, the imitation wood veneer cabinet has peeled corners, scratches chips and scuffs in the plastic coating. The lighted dial of this Sansui 7070 has a plastic surround with an imitation brushed aluminum facing that has spots of wear, showing the black plastic underneath. Finally, it appears that a bulb is burned out behind the tuning dial, which seems to go dim past the 102FM mark. I have not opened the unit to confirm this, but its a common problem with vintage hi-fi, and I assume this is the case. Replacement bulbs for this Sansui 7070 receiver model can be found online, they cost as little as 85 cents each, and are very easy to change. On the plus side, the classic brushed aluminum face of the vintage Sansui 7070 is in great cosmetic condition, buttons and knobs are sparkling clean, and the whole unit is very clean, too. Its a very solid piece of equipment that needs either a little cosmetic TLC or needs to have the shell hidden away in a shelf or entertainment center. Or don't do a thing besides plug it in and display it proudly...your very own Mad Max street fightin' receiver that has the ability to aurally destroy all of your enemies. It measures (minus knobs) 19.75 inches x 13.75 inches x 6.5 inches. This vintage Sansui receiver is now sold.

Vintage Sansui Receiver Model 221

vintage sansui receiver 221

This vintage Sansui receiver model 221 was made in 1973, and with only 8 watts RMS per channel, is considered by snobs to be a low-end receiver. However, this "low end" vintage Sansui still looks and sounds better that many other more powerful receivers, and it is an affordable starter piece for a new Sansui enthusiast. First of all, it definitely has more power than the rated 8 watts per channel, and produces a loud, clear and full sound. Second of all, it has a quality look, with classic brushed aluminum faceplate and knobs, and bright lighted tuning dial. Third, it has the basic amenities you would expect from a Sansui, including a lighted analog needle signal strength meter and loudness boost. There is also a mono / stereo toggle switch that works with all input signals, not just FM radio reception, so if you are getting tired of hearing that extreme '60s stereo mix on your old records (you know...when the drums play through one speaker and the vocals play through the other), just push in the little black button and you get a classic mono sound. The Sansui 221 receiver has dedicated phono, auxiliary, and tape in/out inputs, as well as an old-school DIN input for your reel-to-reel recorder. It measures 16.75 inches x 10.25 inches x 5.5 inches.  Though not recommended to power a pair of Pioneer HPM-900 speakers, it makes a nice piece to add to a modern surround system. It can be utilized to power a pair of the speakers in the surround setup, to use the old-school analog tuner, and to hook up a turntable (which modern receivers can't do without an external pre-amp in the first place!).

A brief (very brief) history of Sansui...Founded in 1947, Tokyo, Japan-based Sansui Electric Company, Ltd originally started out manufacturing electrical transformers. Sansui created its first audio amplifier in 1954, followed by the SA-1000 HiFi Console in 1956, the Q-15 amplifier in 1957, and the SP-220 and Q-3535 preamp and amplifier in 1958. By the 1960s, Sansui had created a worldwide name for itself as a purveyor of reliable, audiophile-quality stereo equipment.
