Sansui made some wonderful-looking receivers, and this G8000 is no exception. This beast was made at the end of the era where great industrial design and uncompromised quality met. This is another photo donated by a friend, so I've never owned it, but drool. . .perhaps someday. At 120 watts per channel, it was a direct competitor for the likes of the Pioneer SX-1050 and SX-1250 as well as comparable Marantz models.
I found this site where a guy has "Frankensteined" his G8000, changed the chassis, etc. Pretty cool and brave mod!
If you have any photos or stories about your Sansui G8000, please leave a comment or send me an email.
