Sony TA-70 Amplifier

A very special little amp.
Well equipped & very stylish. Small footprint with wooden enclosure.

The Sony TA-70 amp is an early offering from Sony – almost a valve like sound to it. Lovely, warm & detailed. Without so much of that Japanese ‘Kick’ so commonly found on later Japanese amps,

Made in Japan – 1973

SKU: 000794


Excellent condition. Some wear on front panel text – above the speakers selector – see pics

Great range of inputs. Phono (Both Moving Magnet & Moving Coil), Tuner, Aux, & Tape. Add Bluetooth connectivity for $59.00

We have been using this amp for a while & thought it was performing well – when we opened it up to do our checks we found out why. The power filter capacitors have been replaced, the volume ‘pot’ has been replaced (using a good quality Alps pot), & the power cord had been replaced – our job was already done for us.

The amp checked out good – voltages & bias correct. No sign of bad repairs or repairs required.

Independently Tested & Tagged for electrical safety.

Not a loud amp @ 15w RMS per channel, but plenty to fill an average sized living room with some to spare. Match with efficient speakers & it’s very nice. It would be an excellent home office amp….
