I almost bought a couple of late 70s/early 80's Sansui Receiver's on ebay last night. One was a 9090DB and one was a G9000 I believe. The first one retailed for like $900 and the other $1100 back when they were new. So in their day they were top of the line. Personally, I love the way they look and just think they are really cool. They both appeared to be huge powerhouses. BUT....I have a few concerns/questions... -Is the sound truthfully as good as many people claim compared to todays stuff? How is the detail, seperation, soundstage, cleanliness, etc etc... -Will age most likely have degraded the sound quality alot unless thoroughly restored?? -Are the tuner's truthfully much better? - Also, when you hook a CD player thru "Aux" does it still sound as good as when you hook to modern receivers dedicated CD input? I am very interested in setting up a Music only system with one and also getting my father one, but I am just afraid to be dissapointed.
