Fisher 400-C // Vintage Tube Preamp / Refinished Mahogany Cabinet / Single Owner

SOLD , now part of a Private Collection

The year was 1958, and the word "stereo" was the big buzz. The engineers over at Fisher Radio Corporation knew that this was no fad, and it was time to get a move on. They were one of the first to produce home stereo gear, joining the ranks of the early pioneers like Ampex, Bogen, Eico, and Grommes. The 400-C "Master Audio Control" was The Fisher's first stereo piece, and more than likely ended up feeding two monoblocks, because stereo amplifiers were still rare at the time. It wasn't until 1959 that Fisher would offer a stereo power amp, "The 300," which we acquired in the same collection from the original owner, and is also available.

This particular example is easily one of the finest pieces we've encountered from that era, and definitely the most pristine 400-C you are likely to find. It's been electronically restored back to factory specs and the mahogany cabinet has been completely refinished. We're tempted to describe it as "museum grade," but regardless of what we say, we're fairly certain that any vintage HiFi collector would eagerly welcome this very rare and important piece into their personal collection.
