    I got this back in 2013 there is a old thread on this I had stated at that time I hope to get to this in 60 days or so Ha Ha so much for that. So I connected this up to my 2nd main system speakers [ see sig. line] and my Oppo using the Balc. connection with a Balc. to RCA cables. Wow great sound,this is the first Fisher integrated amp using 7591 tubes that I have ever had in my system , I have had only Scotts to hear before. I left unit on for over 5 hours power transformer was only warm to the touch so I placed Fisher back in case and moved it to the Tube Room system see the pictures, DSCN2952.JPG DSCN2954.JPG it is still running the 7591,s it came with so in a few weeks I will take out and replace 7591, with newer set and take pictures of the inside which is a site to behold, my good friend who did the restore does a first class job as you will see when I get pictures from underneath

    I have a pair of the Factory built brothers (X-200s). They are indeed pretty sweet.

    I have the same amp they really are great when restored enjoy yours. The only problem I had with mine
    was that it had a very bloated bass line and could not figure it out until I read a thread here were a poster
    only put in .068uf coupling capacitors instead of .1uf's. So I did the same and the difference was great
    it reduced the bass, I guess the KX200 doesn't need the extra zing (I say) from the .1's and .068's are
    enough, but everyone is different and there systems as well, enjoy!

    Thanks for comments. I placed it in the system with the 400-C fisher pre. The KX-200 sounds almost as good as the 400-C Heathkit Williamson amp combo. I am going to radio show this week, CC-AWA show so I will not play the KX-200 much until I get back then I will take pictures inside and replace outputs tubes with a better set, so far appox. 15 hrs. on unit, it plays great and is dead silent even with vol. up over half way to play SACD,s all I can hear at the speakers is a very very low tube SSSSS.

    Congrats! One of my favorite integrated Fisher amps. They made it easy to bias the output tubes and they are very quiet at idle.. I've been using mine daily for several years and it's still going strong.
