The Sansui TU-7900 was the next model below the very highly regarded TU-9900 and it was the successor to the TU-7500 and the predesessor to the hugely successful (especially in the USA) TU-717. It has a very useful feature that is absent on the 717 in that it's signal strength meter doubles as a multipath meter (the two modes are selectable from a switch on the front panel). Like all Sansui's AU and TU series electronics of the 1970's it was only available in a black finish.

The TU-7900 is highly regarded by the "Tuner Information Center" (a USA-based vintage tuner site) which praises it's clean sound quality, good sensitivity and good specs.
