Other Notes: Integrated MM phono stage included but produces a quiet hum. "Aesthetically, the 800B is a beauty. The balance of the two EM84 tuning eyes, one on each side of the dial glass, Fisher bird logo in the center, was unsurpassed by later models. The Fisher 800B is of historical significance since it incorporated an odd technology present only at the beginning of FM stereo. At this time, true multiplex stereo could be obtained from only a very few stations. The competing but short-lived, alternative to mpx stereo was "FM-AM Stereo". Stations using this technology would broadcast one half of the stereo signal on the FM dial and the other half on the AM dial. Setting the 800B's selector knob to FM-AM Stereo and tuning in the sister stations on the FM and AM dials produced the stereo signal. Fortunately for modern listeners, the 800B also included an FM multiplex section. The 800-B sounds beautiful, even by today's standards"
