Sansui G-8000


Sansui G-8000


This is the Sansui G-8000 and while it is the little brother of the Sansui G-9000 it is still one big receiver. Many comparisons are made between this receiver and the Pioneer SX-1250. Surprisingly I would guess that a larger percentage of those who’ve heard both receivers favor the Sansui G-8000 over the SX-1250. However, the Pioneer probably has a slightly better build quality and parts are more easily found nowadays for the 1250 then for the G-8000.

The Sansui G-8000 was manufactured around 1979 and had a list price of about $920.00.  It has a huge toroidal power transformer and four filter caps per channel. It is rated at 120 watts per channel into 8 ohms. Its dimensions are 22.04W x 7.91H x 18.70D and it has Bass, Middle, Treble Tone Controls and inputs for Phono I+II, Tape I+II, AUX, Monitor, Mic.


Sansui G-8000 Side


Most of the G series Sansui receivers have similar styling with a somewhat symmetrical layout and huge tuning and volume knobs. One interesting feature of the G-8000 is that the speaker outputs are on the right side of the unit and the various inputs are on the left side as opposed to the rear of the unit as with most other receivers.  This was probably due to the fact that the G-8000 has a large heat sink that wraps around the back of the unit.  Still, it could make it difficult if you plan on keeping your G-8000 in a rack or narrow space and cable and wires coming out the side of the receiver probably isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing look either.


Sansui G-8000


The Sansui G-8000 is one of the more popular Sansui models because it has quite a few features, is big, performs well and has a great sound. It’s not as expensive as some of the other top of the line Sansui receivers so it’s a good mix for someone looking for a higher end piece of equipment with a budget above entry level.  In good working condition this receiver will sell for around $500-600. If it’s restored then prices can reach $700+.
