This beautiful Sansui FR 5080 is a great turntable, manufactured between 1979-80, top model of Sansui FR series, very well built… A sample of Sansui’s build quality.
Sound amazing, auto start, auto return, repeat function and a very quite mechanism.
Solid and heavy construction, the turntable weight around 13kg.
Combines automatic convenience and direct drive precision without compromising the performance.
A separate motor handles the functions independently and silently and the tonearm tracks freely during play.
The FR5080 came originaly with a SV 40X cartridge and a SN 40X stylus (Shibata) which are CD-4 quadraphonic compatible.
And it looks good too...
