Sansui QRX-5500

 

This Sansui QRX-550 is one of Sansui's Quadrophonic offerings. It puts out 30 per channel to four channels into 8ohms.  It is part of the early beginnings of surround sound. I believe Sansui had six QRX quad offerings and the QRX-5500 was the middle of the spectrum receiver. It was produced in the early 70's. There was also a QRX-5500A version that reflected a change in the syntax of the decoding from QS to QA and SQ. It has that classic early Sansui styling that was also found on the 9090DB.

The QRX-5500 had a number of decoding options such as:

- QS Synthesizer

Surround +  Hall

- QS Regular Matrix

Surround +  Hall

- Phase Matrix

- Discrete

- 2-Channel

The Sansui quad receivers are all fairly popular.  They are difficult to find in full working condition but, when they are, they sell for reasonable prices. While the top of the line QRX-9001 sells for over $500.00 the middle of the road QRX-5500 sell for under $200.00.

  4. I have a QRX 5500 RECIEVER I PURCHASED IN GERMANY IN 1974, VERY FINE CONDITION. HASN’T BEEN USED SINCE 1985. I USED A DUAL 1224 TURNTABLE WITH IT, SAME CONDITION, I BELIEVE THE TURNTABLE NEEDS A NEW BELT (HARD TO FIND).
