Sansui SR-636


Sansui's luxurious looking SR-636 shares the trim, slim profile and jet black luster of the highest priced manual Quartz Servo SR-838 in the latest line up of turntables from the company that makes 'only hi-fi, everything hi-fi'.

A comparison of the rumble and wow/flutter specifications of the two models, keeping in mind the SR-636 is considerably less expensive, will show the differences to be incredibly small - only one decibel difference in rumble and an entirely inaudible 0.0003% difference in wow/flutter.

Now compare the SR636 on it's own terms with the competition.

Only the SR636 features Sansui's new MCF (mass concentrated fulcrum) tonearm, our super accurate CR oscillator equipped PLL Servo system and direct drive motor, an electronic braking system, complex suspension, anti-howl cabinet, up-front control system and lot's more.

But only when you hear it perform can you be certain that it's the direct drive manual for you.
