Sansui FR-5080


The Sansui FR-5080 combines automatic convenience and direct drive precision without compromising musical performance.

A transistorised differential servo-amplifier sees that the direct drive DC motor maintains perfect platter speeds at all times, with no speed drift.

Fully automatic lead in, cut, return, repeat and shut off is yours at the touch of one simple control.

A separate little motor handles these functions independently and silently and the tonearm tracks freely during actual play.

The player also includes a wide response dual-magnet cartridge.
