    oh, I did manage to sell this poor little guy for a very modest sum - the power amp section was kaput, but the preamp/tuner section worked fine.

    I have a 5000A as well. Thinking about firing it up later. Problems: Tuning meter is not functional though all lights work. Tuning can be a little temperamental at times. But sounds good enough powering a couple of B.A. A100s in the basement room.

    But, at the moment, I'm running a couple of Optimus ? (Minimus 7 successors) and a Polk sub with a JVC CD changer that has some Brubeck in it.

    Couldn't sell a Sansui 5000A for $50? Tough times. I believe I paid $75 for mine. lol

    Well, I should really be lifting some weights instead of hanging out on the forums, now, shouldn't I?

    The Sherwood tuners are generally speaking excellent sounding - this particular one sounded OK in a quick test in MA - I am planning (hoping) to hook it to the real hifi up in NH today & see if it sounds as good as the other ones here.

    Dollar for dollar, I think that the vintage Sherwood vacuum tube tuners (and, in some folks' opinions, their earliest solid state tuners as well) are the best sounding units extant.

    mhardy, take some pics of your full layout in that room... I am curious just how big that room really is, especially with all your different racks.

    You've gotta have almost all the Yamaha models at this point lol....

    Are those Altec (604E's?) I bet they sound great in those big cabinets! I've spent many hours listening to a pair of those in the old "moorish" cabs. No sittin on the floor for you!

    +1 on the old sherwood tube tuners too!

    The room's 26 x 26 give or take (loft over a garage) - there are four of the cheap wire Home Despot racks of miscellaneous junk including the Yamaha "shrine" :-) I only show you guys the presentable stuff.

    Yes they are 604Es with Mastering Labs XOs - cabinet design is described at http://www.wardsweb.org/Billfort/
    Mrs. H and I spent some quality time hangin' pictures on the walls this weekend (since it was drizzly and blah outside) - the sideways one in the photo's a project for next week, however :-P It's a big hunker.

    Had a tuner day today, Okay the first one is a receiver, but I only worked on part of the tuner in it. Kicked out 3 in one day.

    lol...No alignments here, just recap, and reworking of power supplies. If they need realigning they get sent out of house.

    I spent an hour listening to it via single-ended 2A3 amps and Altec Duplexes last night; it sounded absolutely dandy, even as-found. I posted a little blurb at AA: http://www.audioasylum.com/forums/tu...s/1/14434.html

    Very nice...! I would have arm-wrestled you for that S-3000 V, I would love to hear that model.

    Somehow I have accumulated two S-3000 IV's, an S-3000 II and an S-2200 (alas no multiplexer installed). The FM multiplex is just OK on the S-3000 IV's (despite a trip to Brian H. for one of them). Mono is fine. When I switch from mono to stereo the output volume decreases, any ideas why?

    Do we know each other IRL? We must, eh? :-)

    I'd rather listen to excellent mono than meh stereo - especially on the Sherwoods. They're just amazingly musical tuners (still) at bargain prices.

    No, I don't have any advice about the volume decrease; sounds like a phase issue to me but I really don't know much about the nuts and bolts of MPX.

    Indeed sir, I took a Sony 6055 off your hands...coming along fine but still needs one or two finishing touches :-)

    I wondered if it might be a marginal tube, but the tubes all test fine (both units). Anything else is an easter egg hunt at my tech level.

    The S-2200 is a very cool unit. Too bad AM/FM simulcast isn't available...Sherman, set the wayback machine to 1960!

    That's the intended purpose of course! ;-)

    ..actually, it is getting 'silted in' - my original intentions kind of got diluted by the amount of crap I've stuffed in there... I have to get a little bit unsentimental and offload some stuff... maybe after the holidays :-P
