I can't find any topics about these, presumably a little low end for some of you..... but I would just like to say, that my AU 2200, bought in about 1973     (does that seem likely ?) is still going strong, currently powering a set of Bose Acoustimass 5 speakers.

The best £20 ($38) I ever spent.

Hey good buddy,

Don't give up on a good thing, everybody else is posting their 200 watt amp but remember your in liege with my AU2000, which happens to be the true "High End" of Sansui. Take a look its the only one with a bronze face plate among the black series bullies. Its supposed to pound out 40 watts but it drives my pair of 200 watt Bose 901 without even flinching. Tried it out with 150 watt JBL eon 15 and the speakers just could'nt handle the bass being hammered out. So ignore those guys with the big watts, in your own home you dont need something loud, just one that gives great sound without the distortion.
Mind you the AU 2000 was just a domestic model for sale only in Japan and AU2200 came in a little later for the export market still based on the original.
I've had offers for my amp but this is a rare piece and irreplaceable to me.
Enjoy great sound from the analog 60's amp you have, AU 2200

Hey i have the Sansui AU 2200 and it came with the wrong fuses inside of it. So i was wondering if you could tell me how many amps the two fuses on the inside are and how many amps the fuse on the outside is? it would be much appreciated. I haven't been able to hear this amp yet and i really want to.

Main fuse (back panel) slow blow type 2A if your AC voltage is 120V or 1A  if AC voltage is 220-240. The fuses inside are protection fuses 2A (Quick Acting type) and extremely fast. You can see them here http://www.woodang.net/QAFuses.htm

the one on the insides work fine. but as for the back panel one well when i power it up the light turns on buts its dim and smoke starts to occur. I used a ceramic fuse for the back panel one. Does it matter?

The ceramic main fuse isn't the reason for the fault.
Some where you have a short circuit in the amp and it needs repairing.

You are right. I tested everything and examined it. There is a short in of the diodes. Where can i get a replacement?

Since your quick acting fuses don't get blown out that takes your main amp out of the equation and leaves you with your power supply. Did you check if any of your caps have opened or is anything sticking like wire ends a little too close to one another causing the short.
