This unit has been serviced and fully tested. Our original Performance Verification Report and a copy of the owner's manual included.

From Sansui:

Our finest control stereo preamplifier. Contemporary disc recordings which feature extremely wide dynamic range make strenuous demands on all links in the reproduction chain, especially in the pre and power amplification stages. Dynamic range and other critical high fidelity parameters, such as a wide frequency response, low distortion and the ability to handle all musical signals without clipping and without an increase in noise, must be applied to any preamplifier if one is to accurately judge its quality. Add to these the control versatility needed in a complex component set-up, and the power stability required for dependable performance and you have described the CA-3000.
