|Fisher 500 B|
This is a Fisher 500 B that my dad bought used out of the Washington Post classifieds in 1978. I went with him to pick it up along with a pair of AR2a speakers and a Garrard Type 'A' Turntable. He had it serviced at Audio Associates at Tyson's Corner and I have used it once in a while. It still sounds great! The On/Off switch failed when I tried it this year so I installed a 'jumper' and now it is on when plugged in. About ten years ago these sold for $75 or so but now I have seen them for much recently after a good review in Stereophile magazine. This review is actually for a 'C' but they are similar. Some seem to prefer the earlier and simpler 400 models.
