Sansui AU-6900, Technics SL-1700mk2 and Cerwin Vega D3's

I'm moving into my new workshop and was finally able to set up a vintage system. 


I used one of my favourite amps, Sansui AU-6900. This amp sounds as good as it looks. 
It packs lots of punch for a medium sized room with 50 Watts per channel. 

When I found this amp it was out of commission. My friend Gary at Stereo Services took the reins and had it working like new in no time. 

The original owner painted the chrome knobs black. at first I was tempted to try and remove the paint but it gives it a cool different look that I've grown to love. 

I'm using a Technics SL-1700 MK2 turntable. A bit more electronics in this turntable than I'm used to but it's built like a tank. It got a bit dirty with the new workshop construction but when I shine it up it sure looks great, especially with the built in light. 

I'm trying a pair of Cerwin Vega D3's. This is my first try with these speakers and they really impress me. Smaller than other Cerwin Vegas I've had but they really compliment the vintage Sansui nicely. 


I know they don't have the original red surrounds but doesn't the black look slick??
