Sansui G-33000 Sells For Over $7000

Sansui G-33000

This Sansui G-33000 receiver recently sold, on June 23, 2016, for $7101.00. These receivers are very rare and don’t come up for sale very often. The seller describes it as being in excellent condition:

This unit has been tested and is fully functioning without any static or interference.  Physically it is in almost mint condition with the exception of a few minor scratches on top of the receiver, and a small scratch on the back of the am.

Another recent sale on July 12th, 2016 saw a Sansui G-33000 go for $6600.00.

Sansui G-33000 Sells

Here’s what the seller had to say about that unit:

Everything tested and in working order. Sounds great. Would describe as very good condition, due to some nicks around top edges. Also, a few tiny nicks on glass (barely noticeable, unless your real close to unit).  $1800 spent on restoration 01/2013. Will include copies of receipt and work done. Will also include bolts for connecting preamp and amp together.

Was doing some further testing. A problem developed with left channel. Where it won’t work all the time?

Obviously the left channel problem hurt the sale price a little bit.

A previous sale on December 17, of 2013 was for $7700.00 so prices have been pretty stable for the last few years.

Just as a comparison a couple G-22000 receivers sold recently as well. One for $3875.00 on July 29, 2016 and one for $3889.00 on July 1, 2016.

Update: June 2020 a G-33000 sold for $7,900. It was in working condition with some wear to the case.

  1. Regarding the Sansui G33000 that was sold for $16,799 the buyer renege  and it was relisted and sold for $8200. Quite a difference. but still holding top spot

  2. I bought a g 33000 March 2018 I paid 5000 Plus I traded a near mint g9000 Plus a set of Macintosh xr5 speakers my G 33000 needed a lot of work somebody before me opened it up and try to repair it and did more damage than good. It is now been repaired and working fine

  3. I got a g-33000 in 1978 paid $4900 and still have it. It is in mint condition and works perfectly fine. Can’t believe the value of it now wow might have to sell my baby lol.

  4. $4900 in 1978?!?
    Wow. I thought $1900 for an SX-1980 was top price point then.
    $4900 would buy a car in 1978.
    $1900 would “only” pay for one year of college.
    No wonder I didnt buy an SX-1980 then.
    It cost more than I earned in a year.

      1. Hello Walter

        I have a 33000 that is currently having a recap job and a new multi pin connector ( steel , not plastic ) and should be ready to go in the next couple of weeks.
        It belongs to a client of ours and I am pretty sure he will ley it go for @ 12K.
        It is in mint condition. We are located in Edmonton, so i would need to find out what shipping would be.
        Is this something you would be interested in.
        I think his price is in line…let me know your thoughts please.
