Hi All,
i am putting in my Sansui AU 717 & Kenwood A 85 amps for sale.
Reason is very simple: Upgrade
I had bought them used from forum members. have serviced the Sansui to almost new conditions (through Akshay Jha, you can ask him) and the Kenwood did not need any servicing at all as its fine.
would rate both the products 8/10.

Re: Sansui AU 717 & Kenwood A 85

Hi Denzong,

I am interested in the AU717.

Would it be possible for you to elaborate on the shortcomings of your Sansui AU717 - Wharf 9.5 combo. I was under the impression (no first had experience; only what I have heard and read) that the 85WPC AU717 punches way above its rating and is considered an excellent vintage amplifier to own.

Seen from your amplifier buy thread that you are considering yamaha amplifiers for partnering with your wharf 9.5. Again, I was under the impression (I could be totally wrong here) that the AU717 is a higher class of amplifier than the yamaha.

The reason I am asking is that I have speakers from Enbee that are around 8 years old. Though they are not power hungry, they do need a good amplifier that can control the bass well (the speakers have 12" woofers). Was wondering whether the sansui has good control over bass, and whether you felt that the 85WPC of the sansui was less for the wharfs.

Best Regards,
APK

honestly there are no shortcomings in the amp and they drive my wharfs very well but i want to have an amp with a remote. i have a huge living area and it becomes very inconvenient for me to rise up each time.
i am just considering the yamaha amp as a temp solution cause in 2 months time i would be going to Hong Kong and plan to get a pre-power combo from there.

the sansui by no means is less for wharfs or other similar speakers at any cost. i had seen these drive tannoys also very effectively.

i, and the previous owner both have taken very good care of it and actually its with heavy heart that i would let go of this amp, just that i could use the money from this to get my pre-power combo.

Thanks Denzong for the clarifications. Am still researching the compatability between the AU717 and my speakers. Unfortunately, that is not an easy thing to do. Will let you know if I am interested in buying.
