Sansui RA-1000


What really gives music that you-are-there realism is the amount of echo or reverb you hear in the sound.

A larger amount of echo can make you feel like you're sitting in a big hall or cathedral - smaller amounts create a discotheque like environment.

Add echo to the sound from your videos, and you've got your own movie house; right in the home.

The Sansui RA-1000 gives all the concert halt realism you need, plus more.

You can make a solo artist sound like a duo, mix voice or guitar with the program of your choice, and record the mix on a connected tape deck, all with echo.

Because we use an electronic BBD reverb unit, reverb is natural and noise extremely low.

For enhanced sense of realism (or just for fun), there's nothing like the Sansui RA-1000.

re: RA-1000

Anyone have the RA-1000 service manual. This looks like a newer version of the RA-990. Thanks
