  1. Just picked up a Sansui G-7000 today at a garage sale for $15. Excellent condition and works great.

        1. I read about these ‘urban myth’ tales; people buying incredible (and close to TOTL) vintage receivers for basically pocket change at thrifts and yard sales. I just don’t buy the stories. That it happens every now and then; maybe. But I see these little stories on literally every, single blog site. No way…I call total B.S.

          1. I have a whole room full of audio gear (and music gear and vintage computers) I’ve bought at yard sales and estate sales over the last 15 years. At one time I had 35 turntables – none of which I paid over $20 for. That includes a Marantz 6300, Technics SL-1800, Dual 5000, 2 Pioneer PL-41’s and Thorens TD-160. Some worked perfectly, some needed belts or minor repair. I’ve bought dozens of receivers. The most I ever paid was for a Kenwood Eleven GX that I paid $50 for – it is super clean but I did have to swap a burned resistor out of the main board. The rest were usually $5 to $20 and that includes two Marantz 2270’s, 2 2230’s, a Pioneer SX-950, Sansui G-6000 etc. Probably about 50 receivers in total. Some were non-functional and I parted them out. Some work perfectly. When I bought the Marantz 6300 turntable I also got two Garrard turntables, two Technics turntables, and a vintage Bozak CMA 10-2DL Mixer – all for $50. It was a good day that day.

            But, I used to go out very early every weekend to literally dozens of sales. It’s not as easy now days because everyone has a phone and is looking values up. Resellers are numerous. Not just for audio but everything. I bought a Nakamichi Dragon for $20 off of Craigslist one time. Oh, I even bought a Roland RS-505 keyboard for $5 once. So, deals are out there but fewer and fewer as time goes on.

          2. I don’t buy those stories either. I attend numerous yard sales, flea markets, thrift stores, goodwills etc. I never seen a vintage receiver of any quality for under $300 some even higher. I just don’t believe the 5 and 15 dollar stories. Sorry

  2. Can the 4-channel adaptor “out’ jacks on a G-6000 also be used as a pre-out source to a separate amplifier so the G-6000 be used as a control unit for a power amp?

  3. Whats wrong with a sansui g 6000 when you turn it up the sound cut off and you have 2 turn off power switch turn back on for it 2 play again

  4. I am a junk hauler, and recently was “paid” to remove a G-6000
    from a customers residence that is pretty much in mint condition.
    Was a little surprised upon learning its only 65 Watts per channel,
    as big, heavy, and bulbis as the connected amplifier to it is.
    Thing is a tank. A beast. But I love it! P.S. Willing to sell it for
    $300.00 cash plus shipping

  5. I bought my 6000 at an auction with a set of Infinity speakers for 15 dollars not knowing what I had, I was most interested in the speakers…little did I know. It sat under the bed for to many years till my Kenwood puked. I hooked the Sansui up and never looked back. The Kenwood went to the shop and got re-furbed for my son. The Sansui started to ‘crackle’ a bit so it is now in the shop getting a full service. I run the Sansui with Genesis Physics II speakers and a Teac A601R cassette player. Once I get a good turntable I will quit buying and just lean back and listen.

    1. Update: Got the G back…was a little more than I expected price wise, $650.00 bucks, soft blue led lights-it looks good. It sounds chest cavity vibratin awesome!!! Now I’m lookin for a pair of Sansui speakers…oh god -will it ever end?

  6. I want the receiver the sansui g-6000. I need to make payments .I disable an on a low budget can I make Pay Kent’s please call 863-812-9496 name is James knightsr

  7. I m thinking on buying a Sansui G 6000 the guy wants 1200$ .I believe the price of this unit seems tombe going up every week. It is n great shape. Is I worth that money….? Thank you Diony

  8. I just removed my G6000 from storage and I’m looking to sell it. It’s been in the family since new and worked great the last time I used it 20 years ago.
    Hoping someone in the Pacific Northwest is looking for one so I don’t have to ship.

    1. We mainly use Craigslist and in our area. We do live just outside of a large city so there are many sales to choose from. At our peak we would go to 40-50 sales on Saturday alone. Back in the pre smartphone days it was very lucrative. More difficult now as everyone can look values up on their phone.
