Sold

 

Gorgeous Fisher 500C tube receiver for sale.  Restored and updated by previous owner, beautiful work.  Cosmetically excellent as you can see from the photos.  I have had this powering a pair of LSIs and Heresy Industrials at the same time and it sounds insanely good.  Great tuner section and phono section.  Excellent compliment of domestic tubes chosen by me and placed appropriately for their function in the unit.  Excellent EH 7591 power tubes.  You won't find many better looking or performing vintage units at this price point.

 

$850 plus shipping/fees.  Located in N. Indiana, South Bend area.  PLEASE PM ME WITH QUESTIONS, THANKS.

gorgeous piece sir

Thank you Billy, it's a winner.  As you know, these are the kind of things you look for in vintage units.....excellent functionality and great cosmetics.  I'm glad I have another one, and that one will not be going anywhere.....

Who did the restoration? I have a 400 and 500C I want to get restored. Looks like your guy did a great job.

This particular unit was done by the previous owner, however, I had Stereo Rehab in Chicago give it a full diagnostic prior to sale.

 

I would VERY highly recommend Stereo Rehab in Chicago for full restorations, particularly of vintage Scott and Fisher units, which are their specialty, but they do absolutely great work on everything.  I am a very satisfied customer several times over....

Based on that recommendation, I've contacted them and will be sending the Sansui 8080DB to them for a tune up.

Be aware that they are only open for walk in business on Friday and Saturday.  The rest of the week they are working on units in the queue.  Normal wait time, (depending on what needs to be done) is 3-4 weeks.  I have never had a unit go longer than that.
