Fisher Electronics was a United States based subsidiary company of Japanese electronics conglomerate Sanyo specialising in the field of hi-fi electronics.

History[edit]

The company was originally formed in 1937[clarification needed] by Avery 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 2010 when Sanyo was purchased by Panasonic.[1] But the Fisher brand was phased out owing to the termination of Sanyo by Panasonic in 2012.[2] 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.
