SANSUI MODEL AX-3S SILVER FACE MICROPHONE SYSTEM WITH ECHO EFFECTS. THIS ITEM IS IDEAL FOR SINGING AND RECORDING. THIS ITEM IS IN NEAR MINTY CONDITION. IT LOOKS GREAT AND DUE TO THE VINTAGE AGE AND NOT TO MANY AVAILABLE THIS WOULD BE IDEAL FOR A COLLECTOR OF VINTAGE AUDIO EQUIPMENT AND IT WORKS IF ONE NEEDS THAT SOMETHING EXTRA WHEN DOING A KAROKE PARTY WITH FAMILY OR FRIENDS. THIS ITEM WILL COME WITH A NEW MICROPHONE.
This is no preamp but a mixing console in disguise. It gives you much more inputs and allows mixing functions for disco, party a.s.o. as well as additional reverberation. If you have a lot of sources or recorders this may be the solution. And because you get TWO microphone inputs you can record i.e. your children's voices on tape or cd even if your machines don't allow microphones. Features are marvelous and unique, the sound is good. You will need a little practice to learn and use all functions AND FUN ALL THE WHILE YOU ARE LEARNING.
The Sansui AX-S3 Mixer Console is truly a unique piece of equipment. I've never seen a similar product offering by any other audio manufacturer. It is a 9 INCHES DEEP X 6.5 INCH WIDE AT THE WHITE GOLD BRUSHED SILVER FACE PLATE AND JUST UNDER THREE INCHES TALL mixer with effects inputs, built in recording reverb (spring tank type - can you say retro o o o o?) and a host of individual level controls as well as a master.
I use this primarily to add source inputs to my classic Sansui "black stack" - TU-919, AU-919, SC-1110, SC-3330, RA-900 and SE-7 eq. Since it was made to match this series of components, it is the perfect way to get past the lack of auxiliary inputs common on most integrated amps. Also nice to hook in the synth, or the computer to pipe MP3's into the system.
While I have seldom used it as a mixer, it is certainly a versatile and usable mixer, with 2 channels for mix/line input, as well as 2 tape loops and the aforementioned effects loops. Each channel has a panpot, a level control, and selectable reverb/ECHO for the mic/line inputs.
