Sansui AU-505 & TU-505 in new veneer.
I've had the AU-505 amplifier for some time, and have raved about it. I've been looking for the matching TU-505 tuner for a while. A friend of the blog brought a lot of vintage equipment out of storage recently, and was kind enough to let me aquire the tuner. I have veneered both pieces in a beautiful claro walnut (another friend has provided some exotic and beautiful musical instrument grade veneers). The picture doesn't do justice to the depth of colour and grain, but I wanted to give you a sense of what they look like. I'll get dark washers next time I'm at the hardware store.
