Hi All,

I am looking for a well maintained Sansui AU-717 Integrated Amplifier. Kindly let me know if anyone wants to sell it.


BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!

Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

Just a word.

A pristine Sansui AU-717 is hard to find now a days.

I'll suggest to look for :

Sansui AU-317 ( younger brother of AU 717 but detailed and powerful)
Kenwood KA-7300 (similar dual mono construction and much better looking and sounding)
Sansui AU D5/D7 (good detailed sound)

Hope this helps.

I would suggest you exercise caution. Recently I set out to buy an AU919. Auditioned 4 of them from different sellers in the United States and all 4 sounded very different from each other - mostly thin. All 4 were beaten hands down by my recapped 3020 which I carried along and listened to on each of the seller's rigs with the same source, speakers and cables. I would believe these Sansui amps need to be completely refurbished with OEM caps, to be enjoyed.
