Sony Concert 1
Sony Concert 2

(1975 - 1976)

All-in-one systems for the japanese market.
For the price of a Concert system, one could buy a TA-8650 V-FET integrated or... half of a TC-880-2.

Sony started with big all-in-ones in 1968 (HP series and siblings), then came the set formula: full-size systems made of separates and sold with attendent speakers and racks. And many of them got made :
the original Listen sets (1972),
the Concert (1975),
the Airport (HMK series)
the Falcon systems (1978),
then the original Session (1979)
and New-York (1979),
Sound Sensor
(1979),
the Liberty (1981, aka Prodigy),
the Manhattan (1981),
the super cute Heli (1982),
the Liberty Star (1984),
Liberty Club (1985),
the first Pixy (1989),
the Stanz (1991),
the Bard (1991),
the Pixy Pro (1992, electrostatic speakers !),
the Pixy Pro ESPRIT (1993, bis repetita).

Not to forget the related but somewhat different due to much more expensive pricetags and sonic ambitions: the Precise P7 (1978), the Scenario (aka "S7", 1989), the Placido (1991) and the 3000 and 5000 series - all of which you can already see on this website.

Bringing these systems online on TVK would be very interesting as they'd show the evolution of the audio market at large far more finely than any "real & serious" audio separates could. I have all to do so but it would prove terribly time-consuming, unfortunately.

Back to the Concert - comparing the size and design of the racks with the 1980s equivalents I find to be quite depressing.

 
The same combinations of units were used for the LISTEN 1000 and LISTEN 2000 systems. With cheaper -but optional- racks.
