re: 5000X

I'm an old guy who has been a hifi devotee since I was a kid. I recently purchased a 5000X that was manufactured in 1970. This was my first exposure to Sansui, having always been a devoted Pioneer fan. When initially powered up, the right channel produced only garbled distortion. On a guess, I replaced all the fuses and was rewarded with the best-sounding receiver I've ever owned. The FM section was very sensitive, and picked up stations that my other receivers could only wish for. The real treat came when I connected a phono. I was astounded - literally. I immediately understood why this receiver is so popular. Bass production is phenominal. This is the first receiver I've ever owned that I ran WITHOUT the loudness compensation. I always run my tone controls flat with loudness contour to boost treble and bass at low volume levels. No need to do that with the 5000X. With the bass and treble controls flat and no loudness compensation, this receiver literally brought my speakers to life. I needed to fund the repair of a nice reel to reel deck, so I sold the 5000X to raise the money. I should not have done that. I've been on the hunt for another one since because I simply cannot get the sound of the 5000X out of my mind. I've also been looking at other Sansui receivers. I hope that the sound characteristics of the 5000X are common to all the other "G" model and earlier Sansuis. I'd like to start a collection if so. Highly recommended. GeeDeeEmm
