Sansui TU-X1


Sansui TU tuners have always stressed accurate reception of radio signals and their proper reproduction of sound waves as well. One way of looking at a Hi-Fi tuner - our way - is to see it as much, much more than a mere radio receiver.

Since our latest DC Hi-Fi amps have the ability to reproduce a frequency range of from zero Hz (DC) to as high as 500,000Hz without straining, we feel it only filling that the new TU-X1 provide comparable improvements in Hi-Fi behaviour.

We call the TU-X1 the Supertuner with justification. It delivers accurate reception and superior amplification specifications on a level with our best AU integrated amplifiers. Such factors as slew rate, rise time and TIM (factors only recently discussed in relation to our amplifiers and never before mentioned in any tuners) have been improved for better transient response. Steady-state response, too. is more impressive in the TU-X1. Examples: The slew rate of the FM stereo MPX driver amps is a fantastic 200V/u Sec. Total harmonic distortion is a mere 0.02%, and the signal-to-noise ratio an excellent 86dB.

Much of the circuitry in the TU -X1 is so new and so effective we've applied for patents on it. Also new and effective is the fact that the FM and AM sections are independent from input to output, integrated into one sturdy chassis for convenience.

It you have been impressed with the widened dynamic range, lower noise and virtually unlimited frequency response now available from direct-to-disc recordings and the best of the latest digital tape systems, wait till you hear what our TU-X1 has to offer in strictly high fidelity performance. It joins the ranks of our very finest products from Sansui, where its all Hi-Fi.

A truly giant of a tuner. About 16 kilograms of electronics, nevertheless not at all a receiver but just a FM/AM tuner. One of the best ever concerning reception and soundwise.
