Hi Folks,
Thanks for looking. I came across a trove of vintage Quad equipment
from the seventies. One of the pieces is a box measureing 4 x 8 x 10
inches with Sansui QS on the front with QS 4Channel Decoder X-2 below
it. On the back side are RCA inputs for L&R and outputs for LF, LB,RF
and RB there is also a fuse holder. Printed in large letters across
the back are SAMPLE. There is a small tage below the printing with the
numbers 740810. Could this be one of those rare prototype QS units I
have seen refence to on the web? any one have an idea on the value of
something of this nature? Other equipment in this trove I have found
reference to include a Sony SQD-2020, CBS Technologies SQL-400 (serial
number 93) and a JVC 4DD-5 Any info about these pieces would be
greatly appreciated
Thanks
John

That sounds a lot like the description of the box that Sansui
actually put on the market back in '74 which were showing up in
surplus catalogs back in the '80s. Maybe this was a unit sent to a
reviewer.
