Hi p00pmeister

This great old amp uses an Alps brand attenuator. This could be a little hard to find an exact fit replacemernt. Have you tried to clean the control. The can generally be restored by flooding the internals with CRC 2-26. If you have intermittent channels, check also the amp/preamp switch to the rear of the amp also.

Check out this Has some instruction on dealing with the disassembly of the attenuator

My sansui tu 217 makes a popping noise and looses all volume when i turn it above 1


Volume controls these days pass signals to an IC that controls most functions such as volume and tone. Following the wiring from the volume control should take you to the this IC which will need to be replaced.

Off of the top of your head could you tell me what my problem with my sansui AU-717 amps problem could possibly be? When I am playing a cd if the volume is even barely loud the sound will go out then I...


It sounds like one of the following:
> You have an impedance miss-match between your speakers and the amp (speakers have am Ohm rating lower than the amp can handle),
> You have the switch set to both A&B speakers turned on, but have speakers connected to either the A or B set, but not both, or
> You have both A & B (4 speakers) connected, and one or both have an Ohm rating lower than 8 (if two sets are connected, they must be 8 or higher).

My best guess off the top of my head.

Sounds like it could be one of two things, either a bad soldering joint, weakend with time! Or dirt in the track of the control. This can be cleaned with Servisol Switch Cleaner (such as Video 40).

I have a Sansui AU-717 amplifier with a bad volume control. How do I find either a replacement or someone who can repair it?


A replacement control will be difficult to locate as it is long out of standard service time. That being said, it is also rather rare for a control to fail completely. Can you please indicate why you feel the volume control is defective? Perhaps there is another problem that will be easier to repair.

Thanks,
Dan

I own a classic Sansui intergrated amplifier (AU-717). It has a short in one channel. At low volume, the sound shorts out. I've had this unit for about 20 years now. Otherwise, it's a great product!


Hi mellemcee


Cool amp mate, and becoming collectable now to. Sansui amps from the era where the best in the world of HiFi. iT may have lost bias control to the offending channel, it may have dirty source switches, tape monitor switch, or even speaker switching. The speaker protection relay may also have a dirty contact, will usually burst back into life with a quick rotation of the vol control. Can you pin the problem down a little more with the info i have given you, try all the controls to see if it impacts on operations, you will need to fix those problems first. Low bias would make that channel sound distorted at low levels also. Is this what is happening to you??
