Sansui FR-3080


Sansui has earned its reputation as an audio-only leader, and the FR-3080 electronic automatic turntable is a fine example of why.

It's designed for 4-channel and 2-channel flexibility, and it lives up in every measure to the proud Sansui tradition, even though it's priced at a level all can afford.

Electronic operation means fully automatic convenience with no stress on the delicate cartridge or tonearm.

Automatic lead-in, return, and repeat operations are wholly independent of tracking and platter-drive systems during play, thus the FR-3080 delivers top manual performance, too.

The true-tracking Sansui S-shaped tonearm features an advanced Dual-Magnet cartridge (SV-40X) with Shibata stylus for the finest in QS, SC) or CD-4 4-channel and 2-channel performance.

And the isolated belt-drive motor, precision-finished capstan and howl-free cabinet add still more to beautifully clear response.
