True bestseller : the crisp and tight 3200F found its way into many a rig, multi-amped or not.

The TA-3200F is a revised version of the 1969 TA-3120F, the latter being based on the third-width TA-3120A.
The test position of the "normal/test" back switch allows to extend response to full-DC while the "normal" position cuts the first few Hz.
This DC, OCL, SEPP OTL power amp was made to complement the TA-2000F preamp, just like the original TA-3120 and TA-3120A were tailored for the original TA-2000 and just like the STR-6200 receiver was the FET version of the STR-6120.

The "knurled" knobs versions seen here were export-only ; Japan kept the original 1965 ES "smooth" knobs.

! Circuit-wise, there are two (or three) very different versions : click the "TALK" button below for a comparison !
