Fisher X1000 X-1000 tube stereo amplifier EL34 Picture and Description:
This was aquired from the original owner. It looks to be 100% original inside except for some of the tubes. The pictures are very clear and give you an excellent view of the cosmetic condition. The chassis has some oxidation but the faceplate is very nice! This has the rare original cabinet made for this particular amplifier. It was powered up slowly on a variac and I have listened to music through it. As to be expected, It sounds like an unrestored 50 year old amplifier, there is some low level hum etc. All of the functions appear to work. I used the aux in for a cd and nothing else. Some of the output tubes plates glow orange after it warms up. Even as is, it has very good output and you can really feel the impact of the bass in your chest. I used Dynaco A10 speakers to test it.. This is a very powerful tube amplifier and should work well with a wide range of speakers. +++NEWBIE ALERT+++ This was fishers flagship top of the line integrated tube amplifier and is very complicated. Please read and understand the disclaimer below! If you think you can buy this as a plug and play item you deserve all the trouble you get and what you won't get is a refund. This item needs to be restored. I strongly recommend a complete rebuild and not a "replaced as needed" once over. Once restored you will have something that is really great sounding that does it all, and is very hard to beat without spending big bucks. Any complaints about noise, hum or any issues associated with an unrestored 50 year old tube amp will fall on deaf ears. Sorry to belabor a point but I want to be very clear and upfront. PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU BID NOT AFTER. A note on shipping. This WILL ship in two boxes. One box for the CABINET, FACEPLATE, KNOBS AND TUBES AND SCREWS AND BOLTS. The other box is for the amplifier. THERE IS NO WAY THIS CAN SHIP SAFELY IN ITS CABINET! The faceplate must be removed to get the amp in and out of its cabinet, that is how it was designed. UPS only. Shipping this across the country is going to cost over $100.00. I make no money from shipping! The calculator on this one is going to be way off. If you want shipping on the cheap then don't bid. I never want to hassle damage claims ever again. It weighs a ton. READ THE CONDITIONS OF SALE! (PLEASE EXCUSE MY RUDE SHOUTING) CONDITIONS OF SALE: SOLD AS IS. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS.
