Default sansui sr 222 upgrade

i forgot to say i found opening the unit and changing some things gave me vast improvments in sound.

i have changed the power cable for a russ andrews yellow power cable. the main interconnect was changed for a high performance shielded desighn with shark connecters a very snug fit and gold.

the earth was the clinger i pretty much earthed what ever could be and did ths with a pure copper cable. which runs to a crimped spade for termination.

with a standard normal cartridge through a sansui phono amp on mm it was silent and i mean silent ! also the sounstage was massive. so when i had put on a better cartridge and a dedictaed slip mat that was from ringmat a reference desighn let me just say this sansui on its own was very serious. not as tight in the bass but deep and traveling. very silent background almost cd like and the top end was smooth. this is a non reference ambient material imagine with maybe 180g vinyl??
