      Hello Pete,

      Are you still repairing Sansui? I have a 6060 that depending on where you now reside needs repairing. Are you interested and please tell me your zip code.

      Hello Pete,

      Being the Sansui Guru that you are would you mind looking at a post I did for my Sansui 6060. It seems to be working OK but I have a question about the Bias Current setting

      Hope all is well with you Pete.

      Hey Pete, SansuiSteve sent me your way.
      I need to buy eight each of the constant currant source ztx694b, mj21194g, and mj21193g

      Hi Pete. I was told to contact you regarding repair shops. I live in Huntington Beach and am looking to get my Sansui 811 cleaned and fixed. I believe the left channel stopped working. Thank you for your time and help.

      Hey Guys, I don't check these visitor messages so you probably won't get a response if you leave a message here. Leave a private message if you want a response.

      Hi Pete, greetings. I've been reading posts on this forum for a while but
      haven't posted yet. I have two Sansui 8's I need to repair
      (one of them is an Eight Deluxe). I can see that you're a real whiz in your understanding of these receivers. Would you be interested in doing any work on these to bring them back to good health? Regards, Jay

      If u check Craigslist for sansui, they are selling a g-801 and a g-901 . Both for 550.I think they are in santa clarita.

      Pete, its not a troll (it me, Fred, "BeatleFred"), I created a new account. I had contacted the Sansui moderator who was willing to let me rejoin, but as I expected, 'Grumpy' refused. Obviously, the more I may write, someone will be bound to think its me and I'll probably get bounced again, thus I appreciate if you keep this confidential. Kale also knows, by the way. Most people who know me, know that I'm a good guy, but unfortunately 'Grumpy' has a thick skull and way too stubborm to reason with.

      Can you recommend the best substitute transistors commonly available for the 2SA726 and the 2SC1313 (found in my AU-6600 Sansui amp)? The tech who's checking out the unit seems to think the cutting out of the left (and sometime the right) channel is due to bad transistors.

      You've been outed as the go-to guy to give new life to an aging and ailing Sansui 9090DB. We just happen to have one here in Santa Monica in dire need of some overdue TLC. Original owner, so it's been in the family longer than the wife and kid... I'm hoping that if you can take care of the receiver, I'll continue to take care of the wife and kid. Friends/relatives up and down coast, LB, OC, SD, so we're in/by your neck of the woods frequently.
      My arms/hands don't work very well any more, so my days of opening things up, cleaning and reassembling are a dozen, or so, years behind me, so I need help w/ most things... but ears still work OK, and it would be nice to get the vintage Sansui back in action.

      Hi All,
      I don't check these "visitor" messages on a regular basis so you probably won't get a response if you leave a message here. I do check "private" messages so that's the best way to reach me.

      Hi Pete, Is there any danger of interchanging the driver boards between 8080db or 9090db and a QRX 9001? - I know they are the same part number (f-2624)), but there are differences, i just don't want to fry the QRX.

      Many Thanks

      Another Sansui 9090 in need of an antenna clamp.I missed your
      Ebay listing.Are there any more coming?
      Best regards,Allan Lewis

      Need help please to replace both FM meter lights on a 9090DB.

    18. Copperman
      Do you have any more of those antenna sockets you made a couple years ago? I have 2 more receivers that need them. A G7700 and a 9090db I found lying on the ground at Alpine Village 10 days ago. Looked so sad, I had to take it home. Besides Deoxit, I changed out the driver board fuse resistors, even though they weren't very bad, the worst only 2X its original resistance, and the tuner was dead, due to a bad Zener in the power supply. When I checked the bias this afternoon, 28 ma and <10 mv on both sides as it sat. And at a lying on the ground price! Wish I could do that every day.
      Anyway, need your price on 2 sockets and send all the way to Torrance. I'll send a check this time, no sense you absorbing a PayPal hit.

      Oh, I bet it is 1N4148. Let me know for sure.
      Thanks for the help with the 8080, but I think there might be a typo on the diode no referenced. 1n4048 is a 275 amp power diode. Could you please check and reply with the correct designation.
