I was checking values on a Sansui G-22000 and thought I would share some of the recent sales of that particular receiver. The monster 100 pound G-22000 is, of course, one of the more popular Sansui receivers and unique along with the very rare G-33000 in that it is really separates hooked together rather than an integrated receiver. Here are the latest sales:
The $600 sale is for the preamp section only without the amp section so that explains the low price. The $1200 sale was essentially for a parts or repair unit that would blow a fuse after 30 minutes of play. The three $2000+ sales are for receivers that are in good working condition. None of them are mint and each have some cosmetic issues. I would guess a mint, restored G-22000 would sell somewhere in the high $2000 range and with an original box and manual could perhaps reach $3000.

This is the giant Sansui G-22000. It listed at over $1400.00 and was only surpassed by it's big brother the Sansui G-33000. The G-22000 was made from 1978 to 1980 and put out a whopping 240 watts per channel. Sansui engineers also utilized what they called the Diamond Differential DC circuit design. This allowed the audio signal to through the DC amplifier directly to the output without passing through a capacitor. Therefore, capacitors had no distorting effect on the audio signal.
The G-22000 also had a unique two piece design in which the power amp and the preamp are contained in separate units. This made it easier to move the preamp without having to move the heavier power amp and also helped reduce any interference the power amp might have on the preamp circuit. Together the unit weighs in at a massive 95 pounds!
The Sansui G-22000 also features:
- Linear Tracking FM Front end
- Five IC's for IF
- A Group Delay Equalizer
- A Power Radio Detector
- An Adjacent Channel Filter
- Automatic Noise Filters
- Selectable Wide/Narrow IF Bandwidth for AM Channels
- Direct Readout Signal and Tuning Meters
- Stereo AM
- Selectable Phono Impedence
- Tone controls for Bass, Mid, and Treble
- Total Harmonic Distortion of 0.009%
Each stereo channel in the G-22000 have their own power supply utilizing two toroidal transformers and four capacitors.
A Sansui G-22000 in really good functioning condition can sell for over $2000 today.
