The One about the Sansui 7070 (Classic Technology)

I knew nothing about technology but I did know from the look of it, this stereo receiver was beyond awesome!  And it was probably one of the first major electronic purchases by my father.

Having read the Amazon reviews for the Zircon StudSensor HD70, I figured it would be a good tests for me to check the unit out as one, I needed to upgrade and get a new Stud Finder and two, one that was under $30 but yet had a display and showed me where the stud center was located but also wirewarning detection.
