Fisher X-100-A

Goodday everybody.
Yesterday I have got me a very nice Fisher X-100-A.
When I look on the internet and forums I read different things.
What do you think about it. Played yesterday and today on my ESL 57's and the sound is very nice
But I think I need the right parts list and schematic's to change some caps.
I do not know witch one????
That is the best thing to do i think. But do not know where to begin....
I almost got me a mountain on beautiful amps. Don't know which one to use
Here's a picture of the Fisher


And if you look here you can see some others.

Now in the house...........
The Fisher X-100-A integrated tube amp
Lafayette LA 224B integrated tube amp (modified)
Sugden p51 power amp (restored)
Dynaco ST-35 power tube amp
Dynaco PAS 3 pre amp tube (modified)
Pioneer SM-600 tube receiver

I am a happy man.

Nice find!!

Just remove the cabinet and take inventory of all capacitors and replace them if they are original. Show us pictures of the caps and we can help you.

I have a KX-100 and absolutely love it. Yours looks great - that's a keeper for sure.
