Hello Everyone,

Been browsing this forum for a week now.
Feels nice to have got registered at last.

Had recently got my hands on a "Studio Standard by Fisher" set in an as-is condition.
Havent hooked in the speakers yet (new ones and dont want to risk it).
Plugged it to the wall, and it does turn on.

I do own and use an all-in-one a/v receiver+dvd player.
But I'm new to the ancient/complex audio systems; and would appreciate if you could tell me how to go about testing, setting it up and using it.
(Intended use would be as a subwoofer amplifier and to play audio tapes.)

If all works well, will try to acquire the manuals.

BTW, heres what the gear contains (from the front panels):
1) Studio Standard by Fisher Integrated Stereo Amplifier CA-856R
. 120 watts-per-channel minimum RMS Power into 8 ohms. 20Hz-20kHz, with no more than 0.2% total harmonic distortion
. Subsonic/High Filter

2) Studio Standard by Fisher Stereo Graphic Equalizer EQ-857
. 7 frequency Bands per channel 64Hz, 160Hz, 400Hz, 1kHz, 2.5kHz, 6.3kHz and 15.6kHz

3) Pro.2 (Got this along with the set)
Karaoke Stereo Mixer KM-20

4) Studio Standard by Fisher AM/FM Stereo Synthesizer Tuner FM-857
. 24-Station Tuning system with Electronic memory
. LCD Digital Frequency Display
. Auto Scan

5) Studio Standard by Fisher Stereo Double Cassette Deck CR-W857
. Two Cassette System
. Synchronized Dubbing
. LED VU Level Meter
. Recording level control

Also, can you please confirm whether or not this system has vacuum tubes in it?

- Thank you.

lekhak,

No, these components do not use tubes. They are not quite that old....maybe 1990. Sanyo owned the Fisher brand name at that time.

This hardware is probably from what was known as a "rack system". This is a system typically found at department stores that included "everything you need"...a rack with a glass door, electronics and speakers.

None of these components are really suitable for use as a subwoofer amp. You should be able to play audio tapes, though.

Hi Rupert,

Thanks for the prompt response.
I had seen some people mentioning that they use a stereo amplifier instead of a mono amplifier; and there being a subsonic filter mentioned on the amplifiers panel; thought I could do the same.

Can you please recommend a ~100$ amplifier for a dual subwoofer?
I'll be using 2 "Single voice coil 4 ohm subwoofer" drivers (polk db104) in a dual subwoofer enclosure.

Have a great day.
