What makes a Sansui great vs say Pioneer or Mcintosh

Sansui has better mids, Pioneer has better bass

Just got one and it is a beautiful best One of the top receivers and the sound is very clear. The FM tuner pulls in stations like no other. It does not require an aux antenna. I have Pioneer, Kenwood and Sansui tuners and they all require an antenna.

My dad purchased his new 9090DB in 1978. I now own it, and love the sound – especially when playing LP’s. It is away right now getting some much needed service – the first it has seen. I have a cheap replacement receiver in its place and it just makes me miss the sound that much more. I am already looking for another one for the upstairs computer room.

I own a 9090DB but it needs some repair.
Where can I take it in Illinois to get it fixed?
