    FS: Fisher 800-B Tube Receiver | AEA Restored

    We have up for sale one of our Fisher 800-B amplifiers that we have completely restored. After our meticulous restoration and component upgrades, this particular 800-B won’t disappoint you.

    The phono section has also been completely refurbished, with audiophile quality polystyrene capacitors and a matched pair of ‘primo’ (selected for low noise & microphonics) NOS vintage 12AX7’s installed. The tone control / line amp section has a matched pair of new Mullard ECC83, and the output inverter/driver utilizes a perfectly matched pair of new Tesla/JJ ECC803S. The output power tubes are a brand new, perfectly matched Electro-Harmonix 7591A Quad. All of the AM and FM section tubes are vintage (mostly Fisher branded) and test NOS strong.

    The face plate in in excellent condition except for slightly smudged lettering on the Mono/Stereo switch (see photos). The original Fisher walnut case has a few minor blemishes, but has been refinished in our cabinet shop and is in over-all very good to excellent condition (see photos).

    AEA Restoration Details:
    - Face plate, knobs and chassis cleaned, hand polished, and sealed with silicon compound
    - All resistors and capacitors checked and replaced/upgraded where necessary – 14 resistors and 22 capacitors were replaced using top-of-the-line “audiophile quality” components including rare polystyrene capacitors in the phono preamp stage
    - Inrush current limiting and non-polarized polypropylene film capacitors have been added to the power supply
    - Output tube bias circuitry upgraded with precision resistors and modern polypropylene bypass capacitors
    - All switches and controls cleaned and lubricated
    - Tubes replaced with thoroughly tested matched-pairs (see above)
    - FM and AM receivers critically aligned and tested to meet all original specs
    - Bias circuit critically aligned on our own computerized spectrum analyzer for best harmonic performance
    - All controls tested and confirmed to function perfectly
    - Sound quality is superb

    This unit comes with our 14 day money-back satisfaction guarantee, and our Gold Level 6 Month Warranty (6 months of initial no-cost repair warranty, with an additional 5 years of fixed cost repairs). See our website for more details HERE.

    We have also created an Amplifier Performance Report for this 800-B, complete with graphs of each channel’s frequency response, maximum power output, total harmonic distortion, spectrum analysis of distortion products, cross talk, and signal to noise ratio and phono stage RIAA equalization compliance. Attached, or view it HERE

    Beautiful Fisher! To my eyes, the 800B is the best-looking Fisher receiver, and possibly the best-looking receiver ever built in any era.

    Thanks Sam! We love Fisher receivers, and Fisher amplifiers in general. The 800-B is certainly one of the best looking receivers out there. We have many Fisher receivers in the pipeline awaiting restoration, so you will be seeing more listed here in the near future!

    Thanks for the compliment! Sadly, the only X-202-B we have in stock is our already restored unit. I will let you know if we come across one that fits what you are looking for.
