    came across this receiver on cl. The back panel plate reads 120vac, 50/60 Hz, 550w max., made in Japan.
    Has outputs for 6 speakers,(3 pair). Says everything works but does'nt light up, and I noticed the 6 push buttons are missing the silver caps. Says make offer. What does the 550 watts max mean and what would watts per channel be for this, does anyone have any info on this model, what should I offer for it. Is it any good, What's it worth? Probably end up being my garage receiver. Thanks for any info.

    About the only thing i can add is that the 550W on the back is total current draw when running, probably including the auxiliary outlets on the back. Per channel wattage probably between 50 and 100W per channel. It could be a chip amp, using STK modules. I've found that SANYO and SANYO/FISHER units rarely have the problems with the STK's that say PIONEER did in theirs (even tho the STK's were SANYO made) as PIONEER changed around some segments of circuits that would affect longevity of the chips. It's probably ok for a garage amp. Worth is what you and the seller come to agreement on. As $$$ amounts are not permitted on Forums other than Dollars and sense, that's gonna have to be it. Usually with 3 pair of speaker hookup's they only cut in 2 pairs as 3 pairs would drop the output impedance to 2.66 from a nominal 8 ohms. Not good for the amp. So they linit them to two pair at a time(4ohms).

    You have a Fisher RS-1058 clone made for Sears. The main difference is cheaper knobs and push buttons instead of switches. Rated around 65 watts. Nice receiver.

    Sounds like the receiver I bought new in 1981 at Sears .. I still have it.
