Isn't the manual going to state so the Tandberg could serve as Preamp for two external components?

post #6377 of 12985

It may very well, but there's a chance it may tell you that, like my Yamaha C-85 preamp, one set has inverted phase to allow turning a stereo amp into a monobloc.

That'd be great flexibility! biggrin.gif

Hey guys,

 

I'm new to the stereo amp world, and even newer to the vintage stereo amp world.  

I was back at my parents' house and was looking in the attic and found a Sansui AU-517.  Powered it on and plugged in a pair of headphones.  It seems like the sound quality is okay, but sound is going in and out of the channels occasionally with a static sound before it goes out.  

 

I'd prefer not to read through the entire thread, so if someone has suggestions on what the problem could be, and some quick and easy possible fixes, I'd be all ears.

Thanks.

Purchase a can of DeOxit and follow the instructions at audiokarma.org.  http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/showthread.php?t=207005  Cleaning all of the switches and pots will probably take care of most of what you are experiencing with the Sansui.

I've got an old Kenwood KA-7002; she's got these beautiful machined knobs and a very clean design. The sound is pretty great, considering the price point in its day, and there's a crapload of inputs. I have some old Nova 8s hooked up to it, but have never really tested out my HD 280s on it (not that it would matter, ha).

Do you have any pictures of it yet?

So it looks like the speaker terminals aren't affected by the issue I stated above.

 

I just got my HE-6 today and all I've got to say is... it's PURE joy with the Sansui AU-517's speaker taps.  Outclasses the HE-500 in terms of clarity, and for me, overall enjoyability.

It's like the best of both worlds in terms of HE-500 and HD800.

I was trying to take some glamour shots of my 1050. None turned out exactly as I had envisioned, but thought I'd share one here since this thread has been so helpful...

I think that's a GREAT shot!
post #6386 of 12985

Likewise,  What settings did you use to take the shot?

post #6387 of 12985
Thanks guys. I was trying to capture that awesome, warm, incandescent glow I love about these beasts.

tipo33, if you click the picture, I believe the Flickr page should show you the aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focal length, etc. I use a Nikon D3000 and this photo was taken with a 50mm Nikkor lens.

Such wonderful machines biggrin.gif

I suck a photography but here's one of the 1980 my daughter took for me:



And one she took that I like of my SD-1100 scope:
