Anyway I found an amp head in my shed. Its not guitar amp, but id sure as hell like to plug it in and see how it rolls. Its a Sansui "AU-55A". it has several inputs at the back, but i have no idea how to use them. Where do I plug the guitar in?

Inputs
Phono 1 & 2, Aux, Tuner & Tape (switch). Aux can be used for CD, DVD, VCR, Headphone jack.
Pre-in Main-out RCA plugs on rear. This amp can be used as a pre-amp or power amplifier. The Pre-Amp, inputs and power supply are all shielded.

Where do I plug in the guitar, what adaptors will i need? I can figure out how to plug speakers in, lol

EDIT: pics

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Plug it into your TV, screw the guitar, it'll sound like crap anyways.


Just go radioshack or something and get some cables so youcan hook it up to your TV or home stereo.

Think about it; Solid State, no Input Jack, no output jack, no EQ.

Lol I'm not asking what I should do with it, just if it's do able. I'm guessing its not, because half of you are smartasses. If I wanted smartassery I'd go to e/b/aums. Most are good though.

I believe "just because it has a hole doesn't mean you should screw it" would be the appropriate metaphor.

You aren't certain, because you haven't owned or used one.

You know nothing about the amp other than the brand,
yet you just said it was very good.
Sansui made some decent pieces and quite a few turds. You might have just put your seal of approval on the hi-fi equivalent of a Marshall MG.

if you REALLY wanted.. you could line out something that does have a stereo signal to it.

like a boss GT-8 or a Pod. use the headphones output with the 1/8" to RCA cable. that would work.
