Wanted: Sansui AU Blackface amplifier.
« on: June 24, 2018, 04:41:04 PM »
Hi all. I came across a mint AU-6500 this weekend at an antique store. Owner is not keen to sell. Bummer.

Please can you pm me with what you may have in this range. Would love something with a bit more grunt to pair with my DM1400'S and Turntable.
I'm in JHB Eastrand. Much appreciated

There should be a rule about antique shops doing that. "Sorry that's for display only". "That's the owners personal collection" etc.

I agree. He wanted to take it home first to test. There were speakers and cables right there.. These speakers..Sansui AA-200


Really hope he phones me evantually.


Please keep an eye out for me.

Saw that long ago. Don't think it is going to be enough for the B&W DM1400's. Nice one though Eclaire. Looks in great condition

Change the speakers maybe? I have an AU222 which has much less power and sounds fantastic on Tannoys and Sonor Audio.

I know where there's a 222 but he wants a lot and it needs attention.
