Sony PS-FL7


1 9 8 5 1985
1 9 8 9 1989

Much later version of the extremely successful early 1980s Sony drawer-style turntables like the radial PS-FL1 or PS-FL5 and tangential cutie-of-the-year PS-FL77.

This is where, for the original japanese market, the object turns to the "gadget" or the "mainly practical" categories so, alas, no dedicated catalogs to be found and no lavish full-size image inserted somewhere in general publications either...
A real pity because the silver PS-FL7 is quite a striking design to say the very least. Previsibly, it is the rarest of the series.

Very solid metal chassis (and metal everything else actually), a fair trafo placed on the left side, a decent Quartz-Locked direct-drive motor and a string-actuated tangential tonearm (not a Biotracer) with automatic track recognition on the higher models and even programmability on the higherhigher models.

Mainly sold within complete systems throughout the mid to late 1980s, like the PS-FL770 in the Precise C-77W european system shown here, flanked by a pair of APM-500, projected into the future with a CDP-102, powered by a TA-V77, tuned by an ST-V77 and remembered by a TC-V77R.

Slightly earlier versions : said PS-FL770 (programmable, ex-owner here :) and PS-FL610.
