This sale is for a Sansui TU-70 Multiplex Tuner in proper working order. The Tuner was serviced and restored by Kelly Wilson “Excalibur Audio”. This is Kelly’s report. Troubleshooted and repaired FM Multiplex circuit. Tested tubes – All tested 90% or better. Replaced Magic Eye tube with original NOS replacement. Complete IF alignment and Multiplex alignment which was set to best. Channel separation as well as lowest distortion. Cleaned chassis and disassembled front to clean glass. The only issue found is the power on /off button which gets stuck once in a while. We believe this issue was present from the factory as there are no indications that the shaft is bent or something caused this situation. The remidy is to simply rotate the button until its free again. Fortunately it does not happen very often and is just an isolated idiosincrasey which adds to the personality of this particular unit. The unit appears factory fresh and has been carefully restored including an original old stock magic eye. While cheaper copies of the magic eye are available they don’t quite compare and given the pristine quality of this unit only an original replacement would do it justice. Comes with the original owners manual and wireing diagram. Your going to be hard pressed to find a better example of this tuner. Check the imbeded video to see how it works. You only have one chance to own this incredibly rare specimen. Tuning Bands: FM, MW. FM Tuning Range: 88 to 108 MHz. Valve complement: 12AU7, 6CW4, 6BA6, 6AU6, 6AQ8, 6BL6, 6BE6.
