    Hi all
    Just picked up my first tube console!!
    The Fisher Custom Electra III in very nice condition. Seller had the unit powered on, so I know it works (don’t worry it’s off till the caps are replaced). Looks like the original turntable is gone and replaced with a 70’s model duel. Also came with brochure with prices handwritten in, man $500 in 1960 must have been a major investment. Anyone knows if this has fm stereo built in or do I need an adapter of some kind ?
    I am more familiar with fishers separate components so which one would be close to this unit ?
    Was surprised to see the woofer pointed down, guess that’s how they got the console so small.
    Sorry for the crappy pics

    Was thinking about that, I might need to dedicate a 2nd room for the console collection. I am sure the wife won’t mind. Haha

    LOL to console collection! Let me know when that happens and I'll come your way for sure!
    Waiting for experts like dcgillespie and larryderouin to put in their 2 cents.

    Nice acquisition!

    Not Mono. One amp is on the Tuner chassis...and the other amp is a separate chassis.

    Model number of the Dual TT? Idler drive Duals are pretty good once restored...
