Fisher Console

Recommended Posts

This is a 1965 Fisher Ambassador hybrid tube console with a Dual 1009 TT.  I added the Fisher KS-1 external speakers at ear level per the Fisher pamphlet directions.  Both the console and the KS-1's are 3 ways.  

The system can fill the room with sound, although not overpowering.  It is well matched with a warm sound at medium sound levels.   The externals would work better on an opposite wall but space limited to this setup.  Bluetooth has been added to the Aux input so can play anything on the net. 

I thought I would share a different style of 'listening area' with vintage east coast hardware.  It has been very interesting to setup during these WFH times.
