THIS IS OUR OWN SONY TA-1120 AMPLIFIER & ST-5000W TUNER AS MUCH MENTIONED ON THIS SITE

Price Breakdown is £500 for the Amp, £200 for the Tuner, £1000 to Rebuild the amp (and then some...) plus £200 to service the Tuner. Sold as Amp only, Tuner only or both together, but we kept the wood cases for the pre-power pair.

We've had these for 3 years & the TA-1120 amp is the rare 1965 early one. A real Benchmark Amp for all amplifiers that followed. It got fully rebuilt on Capacitors & Transistors, if with the original resistors design to keep at least that original, after all it is a Totally New Design based on nothing before it. The only thing we removed was the "T" bass filter as no need to limit bass.

The Tuner is the rare 1967 ST-5000W, before the ST-5000FW with different front panel switches replaced it. This is Serviced & works fine pulling in FM Stereo with ease even with a basic antenna, a very sensitive tuner pulls Stereo through the full 87-108 range. No MW or LW, this is Top End Hifi. The photos are a joy to see how Ancient it is, with all original except one small capacitor got replaced in the 1970s.

We did a REVIEW of both Amp & Tuner together before listing this, so have a read of what it sounds like now as you can buy it, it's a bit long to add here.

This 1965 Amp with our Rebuild & Upgrades sounds Crisp, Fresh, Detailed, Fast & with a proper Deep Bass. Don't be put off by the Age, this is the first "proper" Hifi & the first in the Sony "ES" series. Very Reliable in Use & the S:N ratio on this betters most amps that came after.

~~ You can pay a Deposit & Pay the Rest Monthly ~~

Condition of the Amplifier is Nice if not perfect as 52 years old, nice high grade fascia with a minor mark on the top upper edge, a few marks on the top metal lid & some aging of the rear panel.

Condition of the Tuner is High Grade, the fascia & perspex front panel in high grade, all very tidy. FM STEREO beacon does light. Note the 2 screw holes on the case sides, this shows it was used in a Studio & had brackets fitted to Rack Mount, explaining it fully working which is probably rare on this rare tuner. This Tuner came with a TA-1120A that we sold a while back. We have another lid without the side holes if the top is a bit rough if we can swap it.

We have a spare LID for the buyer of either to choose. Top has surface light rust so needs a respray, but it has no side drill holes to suit the Tuner. This lid actually came with the TA-1120.

THIS AMPLIFIER HAS BEEN FULLY SERVICED, CLEANED, CHECKED VISUALLY BY TAKING APART, RUN IN FOR HOURS AS WELL AS USED BY US!

WHY PAY EXTRA FOR A SERVICED AMPLIFIER WHEN OTHERS ARE CHEAPER?

All amplifiers & receivers we sell as "SERVICED" means they have always been CLEANED, CHECKED, FULLY TESTED, FULLY ADJUSTED, USED FOR MANY HOURS and are offered as good reliable amps ready for you to use. We've sold over 100 Amplifiers & Receivers now & buyers are clearly pleased with the item they get! A Serviced Amplifier is a Reliable Amplifier & will have had any problems dealt with before we sell it. Our checking is way beyond a basic PAT test, each amp is taken apart & examined. We are Qualified Electronics Engineers with over 20 years experience of Amplifiers. All amps over 20 years old need servicing as parts need attention to work properly or faults, failures, damage, noisy operation and unreliability may be present. Any faults we can repair & our work is of a very high quality. On each listing we put at least 12 large clear photos of all aspects of the item including the insides.


This is a Vintage Electrical item. No Warranty or Guarantee is offered or implied but be assured we have Serviced & Tested it to a very high standard before sale.
