    That's a great setup mate. That Sansui looks the business. I'd love a Cadenza black. I bet that's a very transparent system.

    Lovely stuff you've got there, that 919 is pornographic. I'm really interested in getting a Cadenza black when finances permit, never heard one but read great things about it.

    Default NEW WINE IN THE RACK - ALPHA Sansui AU-α 707 DR

    I managed to bag this new minty mega rare 230/240v UK Beauty.

    I'm led to believe there where only ever three UK / Euro spec models imported into the UK.

    Built like a tank, 22.5kg's It is gorgeous in the flesh and the sound is absolutely pure hi-fidelity to my ears - It does not impart anything of itself, cover or gloss over other than laying everything in the recording / music bare, and I mean everything -

    Detailed, neutral, every nuance, micro macro detail revealed - warts n all, seperation of all the recorded parts, textures, timbres, vocals, horns, drums, all instruments sound real !

    Power delivery is effortless - dual mono construction, 130 wpc @ 8 ohms and damping factor of 150

    To coin an old cliche - Re-discovering the most familar of albums............

    I've heard things I never knew where there in terms of how a vocalist tails of a phrase and more startling is the way some rythms start or pause, as I say different to what I've heard a thousand times before - this thing reveals how it really was laid down and it's a shock first time it happens

    Cant get enough it, all I'm doing and want to do is get the set fired up and play tunes - which has to be testimony itself and I take my hat off to Sansui !

    To say I'm chuffed to bits to have bagged this beauty / beast is an understatement.

    Cheers Nigel,

    It's looks are a bonus for sure but it's how this thing sounds or doesnt if you know what I mean that is amazing. It just lets the music and everything on the record come through.

    Combined with the Cadenza B, it is untold detail and not just that, it's the info about the detail and whole damn recording, textures, timbre, breaths, all the little deeep down nuances, timing and structure of the ryhthm - everything - if it's in those grooves it comes through in all it's glory. The separate parts have their own characteristic / texture and I've not experienced that to this degree.

    You'll hear the difference from one tom hit to the other, rim shots are now quite woody sounding or knock /cuff as a rim shot does in real life.

    On some recordings I've loved for decades I now hear that the snare is hit pretty hard / harder than I've ever heard before and / or very firmly, or with more of a pronouced smack.

    The fact I'm still up says it all really. This is a serious piece of kit no question......
