ErichW's Main system System
Last Update: March 06, 2003 at 18:24:37 IP Address:
Amplifier: Front: Sansui G-9700
Rear: Sansui AU-9500
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): A dead Sansui AU-6900 provides the G-9700 with extra inputs.
Speakers: Front: 80's Vega Linear Speakers often sold with HK gear. Have the power handling for an HK670 not a G-9700.
Rear: Large 12" Woofer + 12" PBR +4" x 10" Horn. 70's style JBL clone monsters made by Sound Dynamics. Beautiful cabinetry. Was purchased new (not by me) with the AU-9500. May have alnico magnets as they are very efficient. Probably 93DB/1w/1m. Haven't measured this with a meter though.
CD Player/DAC: Technics SL-PG300
Turntable/Phono Stage: Dual CS 741Q
Other Source(s): Yamaha CT-1010 Tuner
Sony TC-K71 Cassette Deck
Sony TC-377 R2R On occasion
Sansui QS-1 Quadraphonic Decoder
Computer (Creative S.B. Live platinum)
Since this computer is in my primary listening area it has been modified to an extent that it is almost inaudible.
Mitsubishi HS-U56P VCR
The multitude of inputs required for this setup was supplied by adding extra inputs via a dead yet classy looking Amplifier.
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:
Speaker Cables/Interconnects: Home Depot 14 Guage
Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): Power looks good on an Oscilloscope, so none required.
Tweaks: None beyond playing with speaker placement and doing a sweep with a signal generator to identify and eliminate resonances in Furniture etc.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Anything excluding top40 music I enjoy classical music, old obscure LP's, Classic rock, European techno... There is very little music in this world that I don't find enjoyable. I do always appreciate a good recording as I found that the recording quality is often the primary limitation with this system.
System Goals/Comments: Good stereo for cheap. I am a university student and have managed to assemble this pile of vintage gear for around $350 US. Quite a bargain considering what this stuff sells for on E-bay.
System Strengths: Sounds far better than anything that can be purchased new for far more money. I am not impartial to Sansui. I have simply come across quite a bit of Sansui gear at excellent prices. Speakers hold a good stereo image and system has good frequency balance with Amplifiers EQ'd Flat.
System Weaknesses: Front speakers are a little bright for my taste. It's not tube gear which I'd like to try but can't afford without selling my SS gear.
Video/HT System: None
