My buddy is willing to sell me a matched set of these Sony vfet
I know there is few choice

Csx1

Sony vfet new upcomming

Which project should I pick or should I just wait for the new project from papa?
Since I already got the transformer for it 20v x 2.

Which is the most versatile? Say good driving capability?

And where do you get the t brackets... Can't find it anywhere

Thanks in advance

Agreed. If you have the ability to get the pairs of 2SK82/2SJ28, build this amplifier.

My vfets look like the one's you posted and match with a rating of 55.
It plays well and all the functions work without issue. I know that the diodes are in need of immediate replacement because all the parts are still the original ones. I ordered the right diodes and was going to have a tech install them and check the amp out. Unfortunately, California is on lockdown and the tech is in his 60's so I don't want to risk him getting the virus. So, I am going to replace the diodes myself. I have done a little work on stereos but mostly bulbs and caps, but I am a complete novice otherwise. My main question before beginning is there a certain orientation the diodes need to be in, aka black stripe at the bottom? I know that two diodes need to be joined in series.

Thanks and stay safe!
Just Google - repair /restoration of TA -5650, you can see photos showing the orientation and more information - care to be taken - mostly Audiokarma website / also on this forum - plenty to help you
