Sony TA-F6B Integrated Amplifier

Sony TA-F6B Integrated Amplifier  (1977)

This high end amplifier from Sony used quality components.  For example, the attenuator is a 4-gang ALPS, high-end because of the SEPP-OCL,LEC transistors and dual-FET circuits.

The TA-F6B was, alongwith the TA-F5 and TA-F4, the very first audio unit released with a Pulse Locked Power Supply.

Teac AS-200 Integrated Amplifier

Teac AS-200 Integrated Amplifier  (1968)

Teac, more often known for their reel to reel tape machines, also made this Teac AS-200 Integrated Amplifier in the late 1960's.  The machine is wrapped in a wood veneered case, and the wood veneer carries through to the flip down front  panel, and even in the square buttons.  Yes, there is real wood veneer (not vinyl!) inlaid in those small square buttons.

Some other interesting features are 2 Phono and Aux inputs, selected between '1' and '2' via small knobs under the flop down panel.  Build quality is very high, with a tremendous attention to detail which carries through to the internals.  Inside there is an amplifier section which is capable of 40 watts per channel, via two modular amplifier boards.

The rest of this series also contained an AF-200 electronic crossover, an the AE-200 power amplifier.

Check out the rest of the pics after the break.
