    Hi All,
    I have a Sansui Hi-Fi music system that is approximately 38 years old, it is solid state and still plays really well powering four 80 watt speakers.
    House refurb means that the system is now redundant, the question I have is, is this system of any use to anyone and does it have a value?
    The system comprises of:
    Stero cassette D 150
    Tuner T 7 Am Fm stereo auto search tuner
    RG 7 Integrated DC sevo amp
    FRD 35 auto direct drive turn table.
    Thanks in advance for any info.

    Phil.

    Do not part with the cassette deck, you'll regret it when they make a comeback

    Sadly, this stuff is not worth much on the open market. I'd hang on to it. The cassete deck and turntable will likely appreciate in value over the next 10-20 years and you'll need the electronics to use them.

    I would not bother saving a DD turntable!

    Nothing wrong with a DD turntable. I would save the whole lot if I were you. Sansui made some quite stylish looking products. At a guess the only things that won't be especially well made will be the speakers, but even then one can't be sure. Model number for them? Personally I would look for a new cartridge or stylus for the turntable - perhaps something from Audio Technica or Ortofon - and you might find the system coming back to life.

    "House refurb means that the system is now redundant"

    Just keep the cassette deck then.
