JeffPro Posted March 18, 2017 Report Share Posted March 18, 2017 You folks helped me revive these beauties, now I could use some direction on how to power them. I imagine this topic has been gone over before, so if so, I apologize. The best I can figure, and I will test my dads memory on this as well, is they originally had a Fisher Control Amp and Tuner. Based on the pics, the amp could be the X-202-C if it was tube, or a TX-200 if it was SS. I have a pretty strong recollection that there was a glow coming from the cabinet, and something kept burning out that made my dad frustrated to the point he finally stop fixing it. Hope he can recall that to confirm. So my first really uninformed but emotional reaction is to hunt for the same amp, or at least keep it a Fisher from the same mid 60's era. Looking on places like Ebay, I do not see many that have come up. Not many resources for good used equipment that I was aware of near me, Chicago is not terribly far, but would be an all day adventure, and from what I see some shops post for prices, there are no bargains to be had. I did find a stereo repair shop owner that loves Fishers and collects them (never sells them) that could be a good source to help refurbish or at least check over one if I can find a good or from what I can tell a workable one. He did not feel it was worth it to fix the Scott 355R I have. Funny enough, a record collector friend just told me about a shop up north that also brings in nice quality used equipment via estate sales, etc. I called just now and he has a Sansui 2000x for a reasonable price that I might pick up to hold me over until I can find the Fisher. The current Scott SS receiver is getting wonky and this process might take a while. Current listening habits are low to mid level volume in a small room, turntable is the primary source. Wide range of musical taste, mostly 60-70's rock, but would love to grow the jazz vinyl collection. Any other suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated.
