I haven't posted any videos for a while but I have been acquiring some of the better table radios of days gone past. There are so many videos and good reviews of the Proton 300 and KLH 21 I didn't feel I had anything to add. But I picked up this Fisher 100 and felt the need to share.
The sound quality is comparable to my KLH and Proton 300. It certainly has a "bigger" sound than the KLH or my newer Sangean WR-2, no doubt because of the larger speaker. The five push-button tuners are a great feature too.
According to Wikipedia Emerson sold Fisher to Sanyo in 1975, the year after the Fisher 100 was introduced, so that may explain why it was discontinued in 1976. It's a shame because this is a great radio. Hopefully it's designers found gainful employment elsewhere.
Next up I'm hoping to score an Advent 400 or a Panasonic RE-7500.
