The Fisher “FM-1000” Dr. Tubeology restore’s (update 4-7-12)

Very Rare! “Fisher FM-1000” When released by Avery Fisher this tuner was considered the best of the best. Fisher designed and built it to be a “broadcast” reference tuner. This began the “war” of tuner’s with Saul Marantz taking on the challenge to better it. The famed Marantz 10 & 10b sprang out of this. To this day both the FM1000 and the Marantz 10b are by most accounts the best two Stereo FM tuners ever built!.. Stay “tuned” as I begin a photo documentation of a full restoration on this rare component. Updates will be posted at various times. You will not want to miss this!…. in the end I will actually do a side by side listening comparison with my Marantz restored 10b
