The 120 watt G5500 DC Pure Power series receiver is a excellent piece of audio equipment. I have had five of them in the past two years, selling three of them to date. All were super clean sounding, outputting a very realistic sound.
They were made for 3 years from 1980 to 1982. This model offers plenty of power and has excellent tone definition no matter the media inputted.
Those who I have sold one to love them. My brother-in-law went from a high power Denon power amp system he bought new in 1993 to this receiver. He now swears by his G5500. It has plenty of guts to run four speakers too.
You can't go wrong with this receiver, which sells in the $200 to $250 range. They are getting harder to find up for sale, so don't snooze and lose when one crosses your path. Definitely a viable alternative to the more expensive Sansui receivers and amps.
There is a distinct difference between the lower line Sansui receivers such as the G3500/4500 and other earlier Sansui smaller receivers. You will be able to hear a difference in the sound quality. It's a fantastic vintage receiver!
