This Sony Gem arrived recently.
Rare and Exceptional this Sony is classic, clean and great sounding for a tabletop unit built in Japan in 1973.
Great find as I'm quite partial to old Sony gear.
Ultra sleek styling for it's era.
The teak was aged so I sanded and oiled it to it's original tinting. An overall cleanup and some pots spray and its back to new. I replaced the bulbs...briefly thought about going with the blue bulbs...briefly! Went with the original bulbs. Just not the right unit to customize. I'll save that for a Carver or a similar unit. This little package has great tone and I'm sure its early sixties. Nice to see an old unit that has been taken care of so well.
