A Sansui 2000x receiver, made from around 1971 to 1975. Delivering 30 watts per channel, these older receivers used to be looked down upon by high-enders, but have gained cachet in recent years. They certainly were built well.
Detail of the 2000x. Photos by Howard Kneller, taken at Angry Mom Records, Ithaca, New York.
