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.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
