In the UK around 1982, the Sansui AU-D101 amplifier and its more powerful sibling the AU-D33, were highly acclaimed by audiophiles and were so well matched to a pair of KEF Coda III speakers that they could be bought as a set from some outlets. These amplifiers used a complex Feed-forward servo system which resulted in very low 2nd order harmonic distortion. Despite this success, Sansui completely failed to follow up with further mass market audiophile components.

As the mid 1980s arrived, however, sales were lost to competitors (Sony, Pioneer, Matsushita's Technics). Sansui began to lose visibility in the United States around 1988, and then focused on manufacturing high-end components in Japan. The company began to manufacture high-end television sets and other video equipment, but ceased exportation. In the late 1990s, the company's brand was used on video equipment manufactured by other companies. The current manufacturer of the rebranded sets is Orion Electric, based in Osaka and Fukui, Japan. Its U.S. subsidiary markets products under the Sansui brand, among others. Sansui is thus a mere umbrella brand at present. This radical change in Sansui's corporate identity has resulted in a notable change in its product quality as consumers now tend to consider Sansui a mass-market brand rather than a maker of high-end electronics.

Tuner Information Center - Sansui Tuners (0 words)
There are many Sansui tuners in our On-Deck Circle that we'd like to consider listing here if we can get some basic information on them (types of controls and features, number of gangs and number and type of filters, and any personal anecdotes or comparisons to other tuners).
Sansui guru Dave Compton reports: "There are some negatives to the TU-S77AMX compared to other vintage Sansui tuners, like the TU-X1, TU-9900, etc. It's built with some plastic used for the backing to the front panel and the sides of the chassis.
Rather then opine, therefore, that Sansui were poor designers, we thought possibly the issue was covered in the operator's manual and maybe even an accessory bridge strap was provided." Our contributor John C. replies: "I was reading your posts about the sensitivity issue.
