For Sale

Up for sale is this classic mid 1970’s Sansui 881 Receiver. The top model in the triple digit receiver range for 1975 this has all the features one needs for straight forward decent Sansui model from this era.

Has been fully serviced/components replaced and aligned/checked and the sound quality and performance is excellent.

Tuner is senstive and pulls in stations with ease on both FM & AM. A good quality phono stage which will match with any turntable.

Can drive up to three sets of speakers and has two auxilary and tape montior inputs so lots of options with this model.

Delivers a very healthy 60 watts per channel into 8 ohms which is more than adequate for any living space and with its rich warm sound signature, it does this with ease.

In very clean/tidy condition, has a couple of small blemishes – as per photos but this is to be expected for a 47 year old piece of electronics.

This is being sold on behalf and the asking price is $1400 ono

Please email or text for any further interest. If you are local in the Wellington region, happy to arrange a demonstration at the workshop. Will send anywhere in NZ.
