re: Seven

There is a Sansui 7 for sale at a decent price and i would like to know if anyone has ever owned one and what are their thoughts on the receiver is it worth it?

The output seems kinda low at 36Watts per channel at 8 ohms.

Thank you for any help that you can provide.

re: Seven

it´s a litle late but i can say to you that those watts are real but if you connect a set of speakers till 190 watts(din) with around 89 db sensivity it will fill the room with more power than a modern amplifier(after 1980)with strong low frequencies and very nice highs without hurting your ears, the loudness is incredible strong

re: Seven

i have owned a seven since the middle seventies with daily use. love it.
