Late Friday night I was looking at the Craigslist electronics section in my locale and spotted this 600T. Since the seller lived only an hour away and gas is only $2.06 in my area (making for an inexpensive drive) I sent an email at 11 p.m.stating I would like to purchase the unit the very next day. The seller called me at noon Saturday and we made arrangements for the sale early that afternoon. When I arrived at the seller's home the Fisher was setting on the kitchen table. The unit looks extremely nice as does the wood case. The information I got from the seller is that he cleaned the pots and switches and it performed well using an 8 track player in AUX mode. When I inquired about the FM Stereo mode, he stated repeatedly "it should work". When I got home I hooked it up and ran it through some modes for a few minutes to see exactly how well it worked and sounded. The Phono, Aux and FM Mono worked fine however FM Stereo works only through the left channel. I do not typically disclose my purchase prices on these forums however the price is to be taken into consideration of a restoration (whether to restore or not). I paid $200 for it and the case may be worth $75 - $100 alone. I spent a good deal of time reading the AK forums on the 600T last evening and learned some pros and cons about it but saw no price estimates on a resto. I did read that it is a very complex unit and I assume that to mean more labor cost involved to repair than others. My question is .. has any AK member had a 600T restored by a Fisher service center and was the cost considerably more than other receivers. I realize that is somewhat vague but I think you get the gist of my question. The serial number is 39508H and has the secret compartment / hidden door for the dial light adjustment .. and the phono section is to die for ! Well .. almost.
