The Sansui TU-417 is a quality mid-range, well made tuner with very good sound quality.
It is very similar in appearance to the more expensive TU-517 & TU-717 tuners but only has
a 3 gang FM tuning capacitor (like the slimline TU-217 & TU-317 tuners) instead of a 4 gang.
In fact, the TU-417, is essentially a TU-317 in a bigger case with a slightly upgraded
power supply so don't think of it as a TU-717 on the cheap.
Like all Sansui's amplifiers and tuners manufactured in the late 1970's the TU-417
has a thick aluminium front panel painted in matt black. It looks tasteful
but the paint finish can be easily chipped/scratched when subjected to careless handling.
When new, the TU-417 was supplied with professional style rack mounting handles to allow
mounting into a 19" equipment rack. The rack handles are attached to the sides of the unit
by two screws.
