The Fisher Model 400 FM Stereo Receiver

Das waren noch Zeiten als „Fisher“ noch „The Fisher“ war. Die Anfangszeiten des Hifi, damals allenfalls vergleichbar mit heutigem High-End. Was diese Geräte auszeichnete war und ist „Langlebigkeit“. Ich trenne mich nur schwer von dem The Fischer Model 400 FM Stereo Receiver – und wenn dann auch nur im Verbund mit den passenden Boxen (ebenfalls The Fisher Model XP-6). Zustand des Receivers:
