Sansui G-901 DB

The Sansui G-901 DB is the European version of the G-9000. Instead of the shiny silver faceplate it has a more gun metal color. Introduced in 1978 it retailed for about $1250.00. Obviously, being the Euro version it can operate at either 110v or 220v.

The G-901 DB is huge. It weighs around 59 pounds and measures 8" x 22" x 19". With size comes power and this Sansui produces 160 watts per channel at 8 ohms. And that's with a Total Harmonic Distortion of less than 0.03%.

The receiver features Bass, Mid, and Treble controls, all defeatable, with variable turnovers for Bass and Treble. The analog tuner is backlit as are the power and signal strength meters. There is also a Loudness button, Mute button (-20db), High and Subsonic filters, Dolby FM emphasis, Wide and Narrow band selection, FM noise suppression. Headphone and Microphone jacks are incorporated as well.

It has multiple inputs on one side. Included are 2 phono, 2 tape, 1 aux, and 1 4-channel decoder.

And the speaker outputs on the other side.

There is also a huge heat sink on the back of the receiver.

The Sansui G-901 DB is built like a tank with high quality components. Check out the toroidal transformer on this thing.

The Sansui G-901 DB is a fantastic receiver. It's very rare since it was an overseas model. It combines power, sound and performance all into a stylish package. They currently sell for about $2500.00 - $3500.00 in good working condition.

Sansui G-2000

Sansui G-2000 Face Plate

 

The Sansui G-2000 was added to the Sansui receiver lineup around 1977 and retailed for about $240.00. It was advertised as a High Specification AM/FM Receiver at a Competitive Price. The 'G' series of receivers from Sansui are some of the most popular Sansui gear nowadays. The G-2000 is at the bottom of the line in terms of performance but is still built exceptionally well and looks great too.

 

Sansui G-2000 Knobs

 

The G-2000's features are limited with just Bass and Treble tone controls, a Loudness button as well as FM Muting, Mode, and Tape Monitor buttons.

 

Sansui G-2000 Meters

 

Sansui had an eye for symmetry and the front panel looks very balanced. The meter located just above the Volume and Tuning knobs add to the effect. The knobs also have a beveled edge that add a touch of class to its appearance.

 

Sansui G-2000 Lamps

 

16 watts per channel is all this little guy puts out but that's plenty for use in a garage or bedroom. Just be sure to pair it up with some reasonably efficient speakers.  Looks great lit up doesn't it?

 

Sansui G-2000 Parts

 

Sansui was known for their build quality even for the bottom end of their receiver lineup. It has push/pull output circuitry, a FET front end, and a PLL differential demodulator for FM. It weighs around 16 pounds.

 

Sansui G-2000 Inputs

As I mentioned earlier the 'G' Series from Sansui is very popular with collectors. However, given the G-2000's low power output and limited features it's the least coveted of the lineup. A nice, fully functional G-2000 will sell for around $175. Compare that to the G-9000 which sells for about $1700.
