Sansui 771


Thanks to its refined Circuit Board Module construction, the Sansui 771 outperforms many higher priced receivers in the field.

It offers a very superior power amplifier, an all-stage direct coupled OCL powerhouse delivering a continuous 40wpc to drive up to two pairs of speakers at a time.

The preamplifier section and control sections are equally outstanding, providing inputs and controls for two tape decks, two aux, a microphone circuit, a phono circuit and an FM multiplex circuit.

outstanding Sansui model belonging to the underated Sansui XX1 series (being the top of the line the 881). Detailed, powerful, musical, with an awesome sensitivity (tuner)... A true member of the superb Sansui vintage gear. Worth to get (or to keep).

A great piece of equipment, Not only does it sound great but it looks great.

A solid build small receiver with around 32Watts
per channel output through the audio band.
Nice tunersection for its class and simple but
all discret amplifiers that give a good balanced
sound. Best coupled with 8 Ohm speakers with
higher SPL (above 90dB/W/m).
Certainly this is not a top class component,but
its very good midfi,well designed and build and
good looking too. Regarding harmonic distortions
the amp is technical obsolete on paper,but its
still way good enough to enjoy music.
