Has anyone ever heard or used these speakers before? It would be tempting to bid on these,but I know the shipping and handling would easly be over $100.00!What are your thoughts on these and other Fisher
speakers from the Avrey Line?Brian
Its amazing how much engineering went into a speaker line only to be wasted. There were so many speakers that just HAD to sound good but didnt.
I gave many a chance with different amps and such but no luck..Its a cyryin shame.
Good looking speaker box though.
I heard them in a store in 1969 or 1970,
hooked to a fisher receiver and fisher /bsr
changer with shure M70B cartridge.
At the time I thought they were boomy and somewhat hollow sounding.
Fisher speakers sound good. Not great but good. I'm a Fisher nut so these are real interesting but I wouldn't go for them unless I could do local pick up.
Agree with Henry on local pick-up only, Brian. Found 'em listed in that Allied/Ratio Shaq 1971 wish book headlined:"New Fisher omni-directional 3-way Speaker System"; subhead:"Designed to disperse balanced stereo sound in all directions"; description:"Model WS-80. New at Allied. Fisher omni-directional floor system featuring 8" woofer with slot-loading deflector for full 360 degree bass dispersion. 5 3/4" midrange directs smooth mid-frequencies through top and sides of enclosure. 3" tweeter sends pure highs upward and around cabinet. Two-position level control. 35-20,000hz. Capacity, 30 watts. Walnut cabinet. 18 3/4"x18"x11". 24 lbs. $99.95 each". It had a WS-70 sibling, with a 6" woof, for $79.95 each. Sounds like it would make for an interesting rear-channel project.
