re: Plus 75

I must admit I love finding these lost leaders and I have found a fairly diamond in the rough. The front panel glass is cracked, and at first I thought it had been silk screened but it is just a clear piece of glass that I may replace with lexan (polycarbonate). I shouldn't get the cart in front of the horse as I have yet to have this gem in my possession. I simply love the look of these, and I will be in search of a tuning knob, as that is missing, pretty sure I can find something close enough.
The service manual is very through, complete with part ID and numbers.

Update: It is with a heavy heart this receiver had been "trash Picked" dropped on the right front corner, breaking two circuit boards. Anyone need parts? Message me, I'll keep this around for a while

re: Plus 75

I have been looking for an original service manual for my Sanyo Plus 75 receiver for a long time . If you still have it ,I'm interested in it, what do you want for the manual and is it in good conition?

Thanks for your time; Will Travel

re: Plus 75

I now own one of these jewels, just say have impressed I am! The "Rated" 75 wpc is or has to be well under estimated. Has a killer power supply and the Darlington power transistors (like the better Tecnics in that era, It is loaded with many features- mostly found on the large amps of the day like main in pre outs, De emphasis switch, low, mid, high defeat able tone controls, MM or MC for any turntable, Quartz lock tuning, LED L & R power indicators, dual tape loops, AM/FM tuning with dual- indicators LED & analog tuner bar, plus lots more!

It has that classic early 1982 robust sound. You cannot find that just looking around! It was Sanyo's last but by far their, best effort in the receiver mart. Their "Plus" gear also include seperates like the T36 tuners and nice MOSFET amplifiers. If they could have made a better showing one of the top amps-Pioneer, Technics and Sansui would have folded up I am sure. After hitting the mark with this receiver and other components they opted to drop home gear and stay with car audio effort, which they did very good as well.

If you see one of these going cheap, like under a saw buck ($100) grab it fast then sit back and get ready to pat your self on the back- IF you can get around that giant grin on your face.
