Sony TA-5650 Integrated Amplifier

By | April 14th, 2019|Categories: Hifi-Collector|Tags: , , |


Grabbed this Sony TA-5650 from the front lawn of a neighbor during a yard sale. Watch the video to hear what I paid for it. Great-sounding unit, especially for a 45 year old amp. 

Any experiences with this amplifier? Chime in with your stories in the comments.

The cartridge is a Shure V15 Type II and the stylus is a Shure VN-7, both have only a few hours of use – were bought as NOS off eBay by the previous owner this past summer. 
How does it sound?Read the full article
