I bought it from Larg's in Whitehall Street. The first major purchase off my own wages. It took me 2 years to pay it up mind you!
The sound quality was brilliant, so I didn't feel the need to get a new one over the following 34 years, although I did add to it over time with a cd player, cassette deck, mini disc player, tuner, the usual gubbins.
It does mean though, I won't be able to convert my old records into mp3 format now, until I get another one.
Anyway, you probably won't be surprised to find out that I kept my original Owners Instruction Manuals that came with it, dated 1976. So if there are any old audio boffins out there, here's a couple of pages from the manuals that may interest you.
The top one shows the front of the Sony TA-2650 amp, and the middle one is the back panel.
It came with 2 large wooden cabinet speakers (Sony 5300) which were made in Norway.
The turntable deck, Sony PS-1700, still works fine. The rubber slip mat has suction cups to help the vinyl grip better.
If I was told when I bought it that it would last 3 & a half decades, I wouldn't have believed them!!
