A few years ago when I was at university I worked for the Technical Services Association, and came into contact with a lot of audio equipment as we provided sound rigs and DJ services. One of these such pieces of equipment is the Sony TA FB940 amplifier. The picture here is a brushed aluminium one, the one I used was a piano black (high shine), other than that it was technically identical. The amp weighs in at 10.5 kg which is rather heavy, but weight isn't always an indicator of good quality. It's size is quite typical of amps of the time at 15 x 43 x 42 centimetres. The amp has a remote, and works with a tuner, CD deck, turntables, tuner and two ... Read the complete review

I have owned a TA FB940 amp for about 6 years, at the weekend it really gets some hammer driving my massive B&W 605 series2 speakers, which it does effortlessly. I wanted a really simple amp with no flashing lights or other distractions and that is what I got. I originally bought it to drive much smaler B&Ws and thought I would have to upgrade when I got bigger speakers, but it was soon apparent that this was not so. I have always been wary of the big brands like Sony, Phillips, Panasonic etc but as this is one of Sony's QS range I think you get a lot better quality than the usual, cheaper 'throw away' ranges. The one thing I do wish it had was a set of pre-outs . Read the complete review

Four years ago, I have bought this Sony amplifier TA-FB920 (940 is a follow-up one with slight modifications), after a good review I read in a magazine. Like all Sony products, it had an excellent price/functionality and price/quality ratios. Like with most Sony products (at least my experience), trouble with those ratios is that they do NOT last. It broke down after 3 years of much-less-than normal usage and Sony made me pay 35% of the original price for the repairs. In my accounts, it is a lot of money to waste on a 3,5 year old already expensive (or upper mid-market) amplifier. Come on! these things are supposed to for last years! My ... Read the complete review
