From the audiophile's living room to the vintage gear collector's showcase, the AU-717 is more than a device - it's a testament to the enduring power of excellent engineering.

First introduced in 1978, the AU-717 remains highly sought after today for its superior build and sound quality.

The AU-717 isn’t just about raw power, though - it's also about subtlety and nuance. The built-in moving-magnet phono stage adds a warmth and richness to your vinyl records that are sure to draw you into the music. And with a pair of tone controls for bass and treble, you can tailor the sound to your liking, making it a versatile addition to any audio system.

This specific unit is in excellent condition, both aesthetically and functionally. It has been meticulously cleaned and tested to ensure that it's in perfect working order. Minor blemishes on the chassis and faceplate do not detract from the overall appeal of this unit, and it's ready to add a touch of classic charm to your audio setup. All controls have been cleaned with Deox-It, ensuring smooth operation and optimal sound quality. And with the manual available for free download at HiFi Engine, you'll have all the information you need to get the most out of this amazing piece of audio history.

The Sansui AU-717 Integrated Amplifier is a tribute to the golden age of audio design, and this unit is ready to bring that legacy into your home. Don't miss out on the chance to own a piece of audio history that still makes its mark today.
