$1,495 · SANSUI AU-9500 STEREO INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER AMP *THE BEST* 23 KG

CLASSIC TOP-OF-THE-LINE HIGH CURRENT AUDIOPHILE AMPLIFIER;
The pinnacle of Japanese stereo engineering, in many aspects superior to AU-11000, Accuphase E-202, or Marantz 1200.

Rarely seen perfect tonal quality, awesome with any music, from classical (oh, that violin actually sings!), to metal (great meaty punch, finally not harsh!).

Very good cosmetics, x-clean in and out, everything works, recent maintenance service done, all controls deoxed/lubed, are noise-free, cold solder joints reflown with fresh solder, DC offset adjusted to 0 mV L/R, bias set to 37 mA L/R, for best sound and amp stability.

Output transistors are matched (same batch) high-performance Toshiba 2SA679+2SC1079, both channels.

Sound is crystal-clear, beautifully warm and very powerful.
This is the most underrated amplifier you can find, in terms of actual vs rated power, with stunning dynamic power.
The net weight is 23.3 KG, make sure your back can handle it.
