Sansui SR-2020


Created on the assumption that even the finest stereo system is only as good as its weakest component, Sansui's SR-2020 has been built to the highest standards of precision to match our renowned line of receivers, speaker systems and headphone sets.

Designed especially for the listener with a fine ear and a tight budget, the SR-2020 incorporates an advanced belt-drive system and a double rim platter for a speed accuracy that puts it with the leading turntables in any price range.

It has a non-resonant, static balanced tubular tonearm with a tracking error of less than +-1 degrees, and a frequency response of 15 to 20,000Hz.

It also features Sansui's feather touch arm elevation mechanism that always lowers and lifts the tonearm at an even, steady speed.

There are more features to the SR-2020, many more, and combined they give you quality stereo sound reproduction that will compliment the finest of stereo systems.
