I couldn't find much info on the Fisher 205, but perhaps if you can find a users manual it might have that info. It looks like a good quality built receiver from the early 1970's.
I found the following on a site dedicated to Fisher receiver/amps from the early days and someone wrote the following:
"Connecting a moving magnet phono cartridge to vintage receivers should be done through the phono low input rather than phono high, which is for ceramic cartridges."
My Rotel RX-600A has separate RCA plug ins for the two types rather than a switch, but the switch will do the trick. I had old receivers that didn't have a built in preamp, and some turntables still had ceramic cartridges in that period.
I found only service manual on hifiengine.com about Fisher 205 and there is no even specs - only schematic. And thanks for the info about switcher for ceramic cartridges. Playing vinyl i'm using "Phono low" position. When i pull the switch to the "Phono high" position the sound became much louder as when you abruptly turn the volume strongly up. I like the sounding of my old new Fisher 205 definitly.
Now i'm thinking about this item PHILIPS 22AH797 - but no info in world's net
I found this flyer or sheet (identical to Philips 797 Receiver), but with Netherland brand ERRES SX 6797, It could have been for the Dutch market as ERRES and for the international market as Philips....
