Sony PS-F9


You can take the PS-F9 with you anywhere, since the set is compact and lightweight, and operates on batteries. Its smart, innovative design allows it to be used standing upright, lying down or hanging on a wall.

The PS-F9's built-in headphone amplifier allows two pairs of headphones to be connected directly to the set, while the built-in equalizer amplifier allows the set to be connected directly to an amplifier or a radio cassette recorder.

This turntable system is equipped with a linear tracking tonearm. You do not have to adjust tonearm balance.

The linear torque BSL (brushless and slotless) direct drive servo motor has a high signal-to-noise ratio.

The turntable maintains an accurate and drift-free speed by referring to a frequency generated by a very stable quartz oscillator.

When you select the record size and speed and set the record in the disc holder, automatic record play and stylus up/down are operated by the "feather-touch" function buttons. When the play is finished, the tonearm automatically returns to the rest position.

A muting system activates when the tonearm is lifted and is deactivated after the tonearm lowers onto a record so there is no need to turn the volume down every time the stylus is placed on a record.

A record cleaning brush built under the tonearm cleans the surface of the record while it is playing.
