Sony STR 5800Vintage Sony Receiver STR 5800 SD

This ultra heavy-duty vintage Sony receiver STR 5800 SD receiver amplifier is simply amazing (and put an emphasis on HEAVY). The Sony STR 5800 SD was apparently sold by the pound, carrying a hefty $500.00 price tag back in 1978 (which amounts to almost $1,800.00 in today’s currency). The huge brushed aluminum face has pleasing blue/green aqua lighted dials and needle meters, as well as hefty knobs, clicking push buttons and chunky black flip switches…little things that make you feel like you’re in the high-fidelity cockpit each time you press the power button. Features of note include 60 watts per channel, in/out rca loop for 4-channel or Dolby adapter, a “mute” switch that cuts the sound automatically by 20db, super-smooth tuning with neat floating lighted red dial marker that disappears when powered off, and high/low filter settings that actually have distinctive sounds. It even has “Dolby FM” capabilities, cutting edge technology for 1978, used to receive the short-lived, commercially unsuccessful Dolby Noise Reduction FM broadcast signal. Activating the Dolby FM setting actually boosts the overall sound quality of the FM signal, kind of like a "loudness" button. The unit measures 19.25 inches x 14.5 inches x 6.5 inches. It is still in excellent cosmetic and working condition with no electrical problems. There are only a few minor scuffs on the face and top of the cabinet, and a bit of peeling veneer on the lower rear corners. This Sony STR 5800 receiver has since sold and now lives in Japan (!), but you can find lots of high-quality vintage Sony receivers on eBay. Scroll down to see the even more powerful Sony STR 6800!

sony str-6800 sd receiverVintage Sony Receiver STR 6800 SD

Here's another vintage Sony receiver no longer in our possession. This super heavy-duty vintage Sony STR-6800 SD receiver amplifier was absolutely amazing. Hi-fi salesmen way back in 1975 could not keep these behemoths from flying off the shelves, despite the hefty $500.00 price tag. The huge brushed aluminum face has pleasing blue/green aqua lighted dials and needle meters, as well as hefty knobs, clicking push buttons and chunky black flip switches. Features of note include a whopping 80 watts per channel, a high-quality attenuator instead of a standard volume pot, two dedicated phono turntable inputs, the same old-school DIN connector for that old Sony Tapecorder reel to reel, "mute" switch that cuts the sound automatically by 20db, super-smooth tuning with neat floating lighted red dial marker that disappears when powered off, and loudness / presence / low tonal presets that actually have truly distinctive sounds. It also has "Dolby FM" capabilities. The unit measures 19 1/4 inches x 14 3/8 inches x 6 1/2 inches. The Sony STR-6800SD receiver is a quality piece of vintage electronics that will make your speakers sing. This particular model shown had a small piece of veneer missing from the rear top edge and a few very tiny scuffs and dings around the edges, but was meticulously cleaned, thoroughly tested and was in perfect working condition. We sold it quickly to a very happy gentleman in Illinois. We are always on the lookout for Sony STR series receivers and other classic pieces of audio history, and we love to rescue, repair and detail these beauties before sending them off to appreciative audiophiles the world over.

Vintage Sony amplifier TA-V77 tuner ST-V77Vintage Sony Receiver Compact Component System 

This vintage Sony TA-V77 Integrated Stereo Amplifier and matching ST-V77 AM/FM Tuner have quintessential '80s style, with dark gray cabinets, brushed aluminum soft-touch button controls, and lots of lights! These compoments were part of a series of matching components from Sony, which also included a compact disc player, dual cassette deck, linear tracking turntable, and speakers, all of which were sized to fit nicely together in a compact space. Once connected together, everything could be controlled using a remote control...even the turntable! The amplifier has a 9-band graphic equalizer with lighted needles that float behind the face. It has an LCD digital display VU meter and has connections for tuner, turntable, CD, tape, and video 1/video 2. It delivers approximately 50 watts of power (or so I have read elsewhere on the internet). The tuner has the same blue LCD digital readout tuning dial with a signal strength meter. It has ten station presets, and there is a slide-out customizable display panel that backlights the selected station. Originally the unit came with a plastic sheet with little AM /FM signal numbers that you would insert into the panel once you had your memory presets saved. I suppose this was a high-tech idea at the time, but unless you live in the Atlanta area, this particular feature will not be of much use in its current state. Crafty folks might consider using the current ones as templates to create their own with an inkjet or laser printer. Perhaps try a sheet of transparency film or vellum paper, print your preferred station numbers out using white text on black background, cut them out to match the current ones and slide into the removable panel.

Check back later, every vintage Sony receiver we acquire will be posted on this web page.
