1973 SONY TA-1150 AMPLIFIER

IN DECENT VISUAL & GREAT WORKING CONDITION.

35W. SERVICED & RECAPPED WITH UPGRADES


READ MORE ON OUR "HIFI REVIEWS" PAGE

We've not had one of these since about 2009 so never got to Recap & Upgrade one before, if here was our chance. As Our Review page tells, this is the Last of the Classic Sony & still has that Rich Detailed sound the 1960s Sony have.

It has ICs for Phono & Tone. The IC is a more straightforward one & does not lessen the quality at all. It copes fine on Full Bass & Treble tests without clipping out or sounding rough. We'd not say that for IC amps in the 1980s, but this surprised us.

Upgraded & Recapped with matched Resistors that supply the ICs as the early run ones overheat & the later brown carbon comp ones are very inaccurate as we reviewd based on the one we had about 2009. We put uprated Output Transistors instead of the rather feeble original ones, the 'TIP' range ones.

High Grade fascia is almost a "9", the mark to the left of the 'Sony' logo in 2 pics is just reflections from the control knobs. Scratch on the Volume Slider lever as shown. Top lid has a few faint paint traces in the grille. Rear panel has the Multivoltage Plug with a few cracks on the plastic cover as shown, but glued solid & otherwise intact. We left the Screw Connectors in place as they are widely spaced if the VOSO ones will fit in the screw holes if you wanted 4mm ones. Includes a New Black 'Kettle Plug' cable.

A medium sized amp 400mm wide x 160mm high x 286mm deep if 320mm Max Depth inc fittings.

THE AMP ITSELF WEIGHS ABOUT 8.4KG

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.
