Greg spotted this on ARF, I'm not a member, and asked if I would post it here for him.  It's definitely an interesting piece and maybe someone on this forum that lives on the west coast will be interested. 

I'm not sure I agree with some of the comments that were written with the post on ARF.   Growing up friends had that Fisher receiver and a Garrard Lab 80 changer and a pair of speakers that did not have a name on them so I do not know what they were.  Their whole audio package sounded pretty impressive, and they still have it. 

Greg (Electra 225) says HI to everyone, wishes he could post and hopes you all are well.

That's a custom job.  Fisher offered a Living Theatre with radio, phono and TV in the '60s but this is ss '70s something...

It's definitely an interesting piece.  It would be nice to know what speakers are in it?

That model 440T and 1st version Lab 80 peg it as a 1965/66.

IIRC in this era Fisher actually had their own speaker plant for awhile in PA somewhere, memory fails to recall just where.

Thanks for your thoughts Dave.  I was trying to figure out who made the TV but I did not recognize the controls.  I will say this, if you enlarge the photo it does say "Color" and something else that I can't make out bottom center of the screen surround.
