The company was originally formed in 1937Avery Fisher in New York before being sold to the Emerson Electric Company for USD $31 million in 1969. It was subsequently sold by Emerson Electric to Sanyo Electric of Japan in 1975 where it has remained until recently when the Fisher brand was phased out owing to the planned termination of Sanyo by Panasonic. Avery Fisher remained as a consultant for Emerson and Sanyo.
Fisher is generally known to be the first company to introduce separate audio components. Originally, hi-fi systems were integrated all into one chassis.
