Fisher SA1000 

The SA1000 is the “Holy Grail” list of hifi pieces that every audiophile must own at some point.  This list contains items like the Quad ESL57, Rogers LS3/5A, Audio Research D79 amp, McIntosh MR78 Tuner etc. 

This unit has been fully serviced and upgraded for safety and reliability.  Changes include:

  1. Replacement and upgrade of all capacitors in the signal path
  2. Testing of all tubes
  3. Lubrication of all pots
  4. Bias of tubes
  5. Installation of a power on delay board for a softer power on start.  This helps extend the life of all components.  
  6. Testing and replacement of all resistors that measured out of spec or showed signs of aging.  
  7. Replacement of diode rectifiers in the power supply for reliability and performance
  8. Installation of a In-Rush mega current limiter for soft star

Many of these changes are meant to increase the longevity of the amplifier and make sure your investment is well protected. 

Physical condition is good for the age but far from perfect. 

The good:

  1. Face plate is super clean free from dents or scratches.  
  2. Writing is very clean 
  3. Tube case is intact and free from dents 
  4. All knobs are present and original
  5. The door functions and is solid

The not so good:

  1. The brown paint on the side of the chassis is flaking off a bit
  2. The transformer tops have a few scratches
  3. The tube case could benefit from a re-spray

I chose not to re-spray this unit mostly because its a collectors item and I’m unsure of how it will effect its value.  If you’d like to purchase it restored let me know and I will provide a quote.  If it was mine to keep I would certainly repaint it as I like things neat and tidy.

This item will be professionally packaged and insured for safe transit to your home.   

If we don’t have the original manufacture's packaging, we use heavy duty double ply corrugated boxes with Instapak expanding foam custom inserts.  In many cases this has proven to be better than the original packaging.  We also use high quality fiber reinforced tape to seal our packages.  Lightweight items will be bubble wrapped and shipped in a high-quality box. 

This item is available for pickup in Ridgewood, NJ or Union Square, NYC (with convenient parking in the building).

NJ Residents or anyone picking up without a resale certificate will need to pay NJ Sales Tax.

WHO WE ARE 

Skyfi Audio is a small startup business specializing in the purchase, reconditioning, and reselling of select high end audio equipment.  We only buy equipment the we admire and are passionate about. No mid-fi, no gimmicks, and no junk. 

Each piece of equipment is cosmetically restored and fully tested in our well-equipped lab by an engineer with 30+ years of experience in the HiFi world. If it does not meet or exceed the original manufactures specifications, it will not be sold.  We are very selective about the equipment we purchase, focusing on mostly analog, high-build quality, American, and European built units.

Through our sister company, which is an authorized dealer for McIntosh, Audio Research, Sonus Faber, ClearAudio, Project, and Sony ES, we have access to OEM parts, service, and support.  If you are local and are looking for any new equipment for the above-mentioned manufacturers, please drop us a line as we can arrange both sales and professional installation in the tri-state area

PURCHASING GUIDELINES

We do not accept or review any offers that do not go through the official Audiogon system. We have too many items for sale and its nearly impossible to keep track of offers outside of the official system. Please don’t message, email, or text any offers. 

If you do not see a “Make an Offer” button, it means we are not considering any offers on that item.   

PAYMENTS

We prefer working through PayPal, which allows you to use a credit card or bank transfer. We do not charge extra for any payment fees if you purchase the item at the asking price.  You can also send us a personal check (which will need to clear before shipping), certified check, money order, or wire transfer. International clients without access to PayPal should use a bank wire transfer. 

If you are picking up an item, we do not accept PayPal.  You must pay in person with cash, certified or bank check, or wire transfer.  If you make a PayPal payment and are picking up the item, it will be returned. 

TRADE IN POLICY 

We accept trade-ins of equal or lesser value under certain conditions.  Simply ask and let us know the exact model, condition, and the accessories that are included.  Such as the original box, remote, manual, etc.  We will only consider high-end equipment from mainstream manufacturers such as McIntosh, Mark Levinson, Audio Research, Krell, etc. and will typically pass on displays, projectors, receivers, dated processors, and mid-fi equipment of any type.  We will offer a fair value for your equipment, but keep in mind we are running a business and will need to be able to resell the equipment at a profit after investing a great deal of time and resources in testing, certifying, repairing, cleaning, and packaging the incoming equipment.  If you are looking for top dollar we suggest attempting to sell it directly to an end user on your own.

SELL US YOUR GEAR (Working or Broken)

We will also purchase your used or broken gear and arrange pickup if you are in our local market.  Just drop us a note for a quote but be sure to include the condition and what is included. 

HOW TO VISIT US

We are currently operating from a residence in Ridgewood, NJ.  You are welcome to make an appointment if there is a piece of equipment you would like to see in operation before or after purchase.  We have a well-equipped, dedicated listening room with tons of equipment of all makes and models.  We are not a store, so please don’t make an appointment if you are just curious as to how a speaker or piece of equipment sounds.  In essence, no tire kickers please.

If you are in NYC and cannot make it out to Ridgewood, we can arrange pickup in Union Square (14th Street) after the purchase.   You can call or text 646.852.2073 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.  We can also arrange to install, calibrate, and tune the gear in your listening room if you are local to the area.  This is super useful when purchasing large speakers or heavy amplifiers.  It is also great for ensuring your new turntable is setup correctly in its final resting place.  

Thanks for looking and please send us your email address if you would like to receive a list of the equipment we receive from time to time.  We promise not to bombard you with junk email.
