I just got a new Sansui 5000A receiver in very good condition. 55 wpc and everything is perfectly working. It will need a good cleaning because I see a lot of dust and dirt inside. The wood case has some scratches here and there.

Another silver receiver in my collection.

Here is a picture:

Nice pick-up! A very nice receiver that you will enjoy listening to.
My Dad brought one back with him after a tour overseas and it was the mainstay in the system I listened to growing up. My little brother picked one up last year and uses it to push some AR-3's.

I just cleaned it. It was so dirty. Now I have to replace 3 bulbs and I am done with it. It has a lot of power and bass. Similar to my 9090DB except the switches for the bass and the dolby.

Nice pickup. The old Sansuis were pretty decent. I've still got a Sansui 7001 QSR four channel receiver in my garage setup. Have never had a problem with it since I got it way back in the late 70's. The simulated quad is not that great, but it's real nice having seperate volume and tone controls for all 4 channels.

On the picture up half of the light weren't working. I changed all of them and now everything works as it is supposed to be. The receiver was so dirty inside when I got it. I think it was staying in a barn or something because I found a lot of grass, death spiders, net and death bugs. I gave it a very good cleaning and it is like new.

Did you clean the switches and pots with contact cleaner?

Yes, I cleaned everything. They volume, bass and treble levels were cutting a little but after the cleaning they are perfectly working. Now the 5000A is staying over the 9090DB
