Sept. 2012: I really like the Sansui G-3500 receiver I just bought. This model was part of their Pure Power series of receivers from 3 decades ago and it really rocks for a 50 watt unit. I also own a Marantz 2225 and Yamaha RX330, both lower power receivers. This Sansui outrocks both of them and reproduces all sounds quite well. I used to have a Sansui AU-217, which is a 30W amp that was great for its size and I was expecting the same quality from the G-3500 and got it. For a medium sized system, I think this G-3500 is great. Wish I had it back in college when these receivers were brand new. Sound quality is good and everything works beautifully on this one. If you are looking for a vintage receiver in this power and price range, you can't go wrong. I picked this one up for $95. It had no rash or electronic issues. I would suppose it may have been de-oxed, but it did come from the dry state of Colorado. It isn't a delicate unit like some of the higher end units of its time, but a power house capable of being delicate if needed. It plays back all of the tones really nicely. Right now I have it mated to a pair of DCM CX27 three way floor standing speakers. They certainly add to the Sansui's sound reproduction quality, but I can tell a big difference between the way they sounded with the Yamaha RX330 I had hooked to them a few days ago. I am looking for some quality 8 ohm speakers to replace the 6 ohm DCMs for the Sansui. Gotta love it for what it is! I think it could last another 30 years, no sweat.
