Sansui 210

by Al Whitaker Date Added: Sunday 20 November, 2011
I picked up a Sansui 210 at a recent estate sale for about $20 not knowing anything about the model except the Sansui name. When I got it home and read the specs, I've got to admit I was a little disappointed in that it is such a low-power amp. But it was clean and the case is in perfect condition making me believe it had been well cared for. I connected it to a pair of old JBL LZ44's and was very pleasantly surprised at the overal quality of the sound. The bass was rich and powerful while the mids and highs were very clear and a lot better than I expected. I haven't cracked the case open yet, but that will be a project for this winter as all of the lights are out and I've heard a little noise that makes me believe it needs to be recapped. My only dislike is the lack of a separate balance pot. The dual volume controls are difficult and, in my opinion, a pitiful method of saving expense on the production of the unit. The tuner obviously needs cleaning as even the local stations come in a little weak. Still, overall I'm very pleased with it and plan to install it in a cabinet in my camper, where I obviously don't need 240 watts per channel. It's a low-end unit built to be used in a small space, but it will fill that space with rich sounding music.
