Is it safe to run two sets of speakers on a Fisher 400 using a Passive Switch Box (with protection) like the one in the picture? One set of speakers would be vintage Grundig's (see photo) from the 1960's that I believe are 6 ohms. The second set of speakers would be a passive Pioneer S-W33 Subwoofer (see photo) that is 8 ohms with duel speaker inputs. If it is safe, do I run the Fisher 400 in 8 ohm or 4 ohm mode? Thanks, Mike
I have a Pro-Ject RM 5.1 SE Turntable that came with the Sumiko Blue Point 2 High Output Moving Coil Cartridge. I am going to be hooking it up to The Fisher 400 Tube Receiver. Would I be better suited with a Moving Magnet Cartridge? Should I buy something like the Ortofon 2M Bronze? Will there be a noticeable difference?
Without modifying the unit, is there a safe method to use a Fisher 400 just as a preamp without damaging the output transformer? I see it has a Speaker on/off switch. Does turning it to the "Speakers Off' off mode solve this issue? Please no guesses, only reply if you're 100% certain. Hope I don't sound rude, just cannot risk damaging the unit.
I am thinking about buying a Fisher 500 or Fisher 800 I see in pictures they have an single RCA Center Channel Output and Speaker Terminal Outputs. Can I use the single RCA Center Channel Output for a powered Sub, and then run (4) speakers off the Speaker Terminal Outputs?
