Sansui AU-888 integrated amp photos.


This is a spectacular sounding amp, rated at a crazy conservative 45 watts/channel, with extraordinary Sansui construction quality (the solid aluminum knobs are attached with double set screws!), and attention to detail (like engraved typography).

I love my 888, this thing drives pretty much anything I can throw at it with no complaints and still sound amazing!

I've got one too. Love it! I've bought a lot of different amps since this one, but haven't found a real contender. Until now, maybe.... I just bought a Yamaha CA-1000. Have yet to do a proper comparison, but this Yammie's sounding pretty damn good.

I was 5 years old when my father bought one AU888. That sound was a surprise for me since I was a boy. With this sansui I learned to love music. Now I´m 45 years old and I still enjoy this amplificate like the first day. I love it.

Hi

How does the au888 compare with the au999 for classical and easy listening where clarity is important for myself? Cheers David
