THE FISHER “PRESIDENT” STEREO CONSOLE FROM 1965 Picture and Description:
THE FISHER “PRESIDENT” FROM 1965 This is a VERY RARE item indeed. It is a Fisher Console with great components. Received as a gift from a family member who is a retired Classical Pianist. I have had possession of it for about five years. I have never turned it on or tested it in any way. I am told that it should be brought up slowly in order to preserve the capacitors. The following is the makeup of the unit: Chassis: MF-300, 400-CX-2, TA-900, RK-20 36 Tubes, 22 Transistors/120 Watts Original price: $2795 (you could buy a new car for that in 1965) Turntable: Elac Miracord 10 Reel to Reel: Ampex 4452 The President includes a tube Pre-amplifier, a tube AM/FM stereo Tuner, a solid state Amplifier, Fisher three way speaker system x2, a remote control, A Miracord Model 10 record changer and an Ampex RtR tape deck. The cabinet is French Provincial. I do not know the weight but I can tell you it weighs as much as a piano. So, obviously, it will need to be picked up or shipping arrangements must be made by the winner of the auction. Be sure to Google “The Fisher President” or any variation thereof and you will find virtually nothing on the net about this unit other than what I have stated here. THIS IS ONE RARE PUPPY. NOTE: There is one missing brass knob insert. Two others need to be re-attached. There are reproduction brass inserts available on line. The original record changer was missing when I received the President, so I purchased the exact same turntable to go with it. The turntable came with a base and a cracked plastic top. The turntable, itself, is perfect. To reinstall the turntable into the President cabinet, a new base and sliders will need to be made. The cabinet has a broken rear leg (see photo). Because of support on the back of the cabinet, it will stand without the leg. The Cabinet also has a broken door hinge peice. It is cosmetic only and I have the part. THIS UNIT IS BEING SOLD AS IS. IT HAS NOT BEEN TESTED. BE SURE TO LOOK AT ALL THE PHOTOS TO SEE ITS CONDITION. IF YOU WANT A ONE OF A KIND PIECE OF AMERICAN HIGH FIDELITY HISTORY, THIS IS THE ITEM. Dimensions: 76.75" Wide X 20" Deep X 32" High The Fisher President would make a wonderful Christmas present. Serious bidders only. HAPPY BIDDING!
