Sony ST-5000FW

February

Part of Sony's first foray into HIGH-Fidelity and the last original ES unit to appear after the TA-1120, TA-4300, TTS-3000 etc.

The original and shortlived ST-5000 (may 1967...1968) was quickly replaced by the ST-5000F (F for FET) ; both versions were both designed by Masaru Nagami, later of ESPRIT fame.
However, like a few other 1960s units, the ST-5000F remained available in Japan far longer than elsewhere, even remaining more expensive than the excellent ST-5950SD topper in 1976 ! Only the new ST-A7B was pricier.

Just as for the TA-2000F, a black version of the 5000F has surfaced in Germany ; I suspect these blackies to have been "distributor" or even "shop" custom-made but a black-faced STR-6060F has been discovered in Japan (STR-6000) so... maybe... perhaps...?


A very informative review is available here.
