Grew up with hi end stuff , but the last 10 years i started as a hobby a vintage colection mainly reveivers , triplex , and reel to reel decks.A found this hobby was giving me a better buzz than hi end stuff prices are sometimes very low and merting all these people selling or buying stuff is always positive. Slowly i started putting aside my expensive stuff and started experimenting with old hifi my speakers worth almost a Golf so it was always easy from.the first song what kind of receiver was! Now to cut the ling story after buying the Sony str 6120 it was the first time that i had something 100 equal to my monster A Class Amps, thoughts started about selling them but again how.was that possible? After 6 months A B comparison i sold them!!!! Again i started rotating other receivers but no magic !! and beware my Speakers are 83db 6ohm not so easy. Finnally i also sold my expensive phono replaced the cartitrige with a high outpout MC and thats it! First time i feel so good and have money in the bank! was it a bad move? no it was a mature one it was obvious that this beast was in paar with modern hi end electronics . I am looking once in a.week to buy a second.one BUT they dont come up.so.easy.Enjoy your hobby with old TOTL vintage receivers from SONY like the STR 6065 other brands like Marantz etc cant deliver . SonyStr 6120is a dream..and i have to add that was the personal receiver of John Lennon

Gem from around 1970. Rated at 60 watts but feels quite conservative. Good power over very broad bandwidth. It has a warm sound with bias toward base. Some say it is similar to Marantz sound from same era. Build quality and flexibility are very good. Controls and switches high precision. Definitely a keeper if you can find one. Driving a pair of Snell Type E with ease.
