MOST RECENT

Same model, the top one later in the production, the bottom one an early example. I didn't know they had updated the colour of the faceplate. I'm not sure which I like the most .

Another one brought back to life. I was extremely lucky to be able to source a good stock of vfets that I can now use to restore these amazing amplifiers. Time to do the testing now, the best part of the job!

I always enjoy working on these Sony V-fets. Not only do they sound like very few other solid state amplifiers, but I also have a bit of a history with them. My first amplifier I ever repaired was a Ta-5650, not an easy job to get started, but with a lot of double checking, forums and care I managed to bring it back to life. After turning it on for the first time, just pure bliss. So much I'm fact, that I decided to start collecting all the possible vfets (amplifiers and transistors) I could get my hands on. Now it feels all over again like the beginning: another Ta-5650 on the bench, checking the voltages, pampering and loving it till the great scary moment of plugging the vfets in, and hoping for the best. This one was for sale on ebay as broken, I took it and was lucky enough to find out that 4 of the 8 vfets were still perfectly fine. You really need a good curve tracer to do a proper job here.

My beloved Yamaha Vfet amp is not in a good way. Just praying that this resistor fried before the output transistors did. #pleasebeok #vfet #inhospitalnow

Some more Sony vfet beauty, that I'm lucky to have found and added to my collection. This time it's the incredible (and incredibly rare) TA-F7, produced from 1976 to 1981. 12 v-fets for that famous triode-like sound that so many love. This is the 237th amplifier of the early variant for the EU export, in silver with silkscreened scripting, produced in only 300 units worldwide. 3000 units were made of its brother, the darker TA-F7B

And here it is, in its full spendor, running like a charm, warming up this gray winter day with some Diana Krall .

Sony VFET price drop and TA-4650 announcement. Great machines ... A bit fiddly to work on with voltage doublers that can dry the outputs if they get unhappy.

I have had the lower VFET models like the TA-5650 and 4650 but never this big one. One thing i can tell u is getting output devices is a pain and they need to be reasonably well matched, at least per channel, to bias correctly.
