WTB: Sony TA-F808ES, TA-F555ESJ, TA-F555ESL, TA-F555ESG, etc


I am looking to buy one of the following integrated amplifiers or similar variants in good cosmetic and functioning condition: Sony TA-F808ES, TA-F555ESJ, TA-F555ESL, TA-F555ESG

The Japanese variants are okay, as I have a good step-down transformer. Please let me know if you have one of these you'd like to sell!

I've got an 808ES sitting here, but I can't imagine selling it anytime soon. Lovely beast of an amp.
I'm pretty sure I found some posts of yours talking about it while I was researching it! It really does look like a wonderful amp. I especially love the look of the late 80's-early 90's Sony products. Many of the Japanese listings talk about how they were made during the Japanese bubble economy of 86-92, and were not made to a price point. Can't wait to get my hands on one and hear it!


Next Round Is On Me
This is a good few years too late. I once had a very impressive Sony ES stack with the cherry looking wood sides. This system was part of a surround sound setup with a dedicated amp for most channels (including the big wattage meter one) and Thiel’s for speakers. Definitely easy on the eyes and ears.
